Wednesday night's episode of "American Digger" (Wed., 10 p.m. ET on Spike) found Ric Savage and his crew in a dangerous situation while looking for Civil War relics in Virginia.
One homeowner agreed to let them dig on his land, but when they brought out heavy equipment, the bearded Santa look-alike pulled a gun on them.
"Shut her down! Out! Out! Out!" he ordered. Eventually Ric defused the situation, but the homeowner (and his gun) kept watch over their dig.
Another local insulted Ric: "What are you doing with a weak handshake for a big fellow like you?"
Eventually the crew hit pay dirt and made $4,500 for a Civil War haul that included a rare cannonball and a breastplate decoration.
The treasure hunting continues on "American Digger," Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on Spike.
