Bud has a survival store.DP contacted him,said they would like to know what he does to train people,etc.

I said I wouldnt touch it with a ten foot pole,they make you out a fool and a target.

They said his sales would soar from exposure.He needs that right now,dont know if they offered money.

What would you do,I wouldnt go near them.

I would at least be very thoughtful about what I said, how I said it and my appearance.

What is "DP"? - not familiar with that acronym?

A "survival store"?? - really? It should grow on its own - if he has a good product/services.

I doubt they pay. They always say you will benefit, exposure, sales, etc. Most never get the benefits expected. For the most part, these production companies with the cable TV shows are leeches. You provide the talent and sweat, they make the money. Unless your name it on the show, of course. Yes, I am a cynic. Have many friends who have BTDT. Interestingly, they never do it again. Wonder why?

I think that's the show in the subject line: Doomsday Prepper(s?).

Doomsday Prepper.

His store is new and paid the store bills,health issue closed him down 2 months....and most small business up here is a tough row to hoe,that he made it at all was a surprise.

He faces closing it down so might be why he considered the offer,just happened,dont know his thoughts if he will.

Im sure we would be portrayed as toothless whack jobs and the town,can only imagine!

I tend to go along with the don't-go-near-it opinion.

However, one option would be to give them what you have and they need, rather than what they think they want.

Hmmm–somewhat unclear. They want survivalist training, give them preparedness training.

The don't want survivalist training, they want a crazy to make for a good episode. It's about ratings, not training, survival or preparedness.

spuds,

If I was going to do some shopping at your friend's store, and the night before I saw him and his store on Doomsday Preppers, I would definietly steer AWAY, and find another store for my shopping.

How is that for a clear cut no-no.
