What happend to rick harrison friend shawn from the pawn stars?

Sean Rich is no longer appearing on Pawn Stars. Apparently the History Channel wanted Sean to sign an exclusive contact with them that would keep him from appearing elsewhere. According to Sean, they didn't want to reimburse him very well for his time and expertise so he chose to step down. Rich says he does not blame his friends, the Harrisons, only the network and production company.

Rick often called Rich to determine the authenticity of antique firearms. Sean is considered to be an expert in antique gunsmithing, arms and armor. Rich is also the owner/operator of Tortuga Trading Inc. The shop specializes in antique arms and armor especially from the 16th thru 19th century. The store is located at:

  • 2240 Encinitas Blvd Suite D-228
    Encinitas CA, 92024
    Telephone: 760-271-5457

During the summer of 2012, Rich was said to be filming a new reality show, but it has not yet been released and details are unknown.
