The Weapon Hunter
History, Reality, Documentary
History buff Paul Shull is on a mission to find some of the world's rarest weapons from military history. This series chronicles his journey as he locates, fixes and fires antique weapons. He gets help from a network of history-obsessed collectors, who have spent decades -- and quite a bit of money -- building up collections of militaria that rival the best around. The collectors open their doors to Shull, allowing him to experience history firsthand. On his cross-country trek, Shull fires World War II rifles, tries to restore a WWII-era Quad 50 machine gun, and attempts to locate and fire a flamethrower.
