I think this is one of his most interesting videos. He tours the building and plays with the 22 sparrow and osprey.

I adore that concept with the outer tube the registered part, and the baffles separated by a split sleeve (see video, I can't explain it). Super easy to clean, the serialized part will practically never wear out, and potentially the same tube can host multiple caliber baffle sets.

I watched this set of vids a couple of days ago and now my Sig P226 keeps asking me when we're getting a new can! Darn you Nutnfancy!

I have decided that when I can, I'm getting a Ruger Mark II and getting a sparrow.

I laughed through much of those two videos, but by the end, it looked like the guys at Silencerco were getting a little worn out with the Nutnfancy guys. Spending a day with Nutnfancy would be emotionally exhausting.

Yea, but ya gotta admit that you wouldn't have watched both of those videos all the way thru if it weren't for nutnfancy!!

The guy knows how to make a flick. One of the few guys that I can't just skip over. Always something good.

Now to figure out howto thread the barrel on my .22 Bersa.. :cool:

I can, just because he ANNOYS THE SNOT OUT OF ME!!! But I do find myself referring to some of his vids occasionally for a laugh.

I find his videos amusing and interesting. His only drawback is his slangy manner of speech that makes him sound like a 19 year-old. It just seems odd to hear a 40 ish guy saying "hey dude" and "awesome!" all the time. However, he is a refreshing althernative to the corrupt gun magazines and cable TV shooting shows also run by the corrupt gun magazines.

So this nutnfancy clown has a hobby he enjoys, and people like looking at gear. So I avoid making disparaging comments about the fellow.

But since we're here talking about him, let me say that I think he has a mental problem. Maybe ADD, maybe Asberger's Syndrome, but the dude babbles and yammers, and likes to pretend that he's a Tactical Force to be Reckoned With. A special adviser to our Armed Forces.

His great breakthrough came when one of his acquaintances took pity on him and said, "Dude, you need to focus. Print out a sheet of paper, work down a list, like 'ergonomics,' 'function,' etc." And to his credit he did take that advice, but being a total (deleted-Sam) he puts the sheet on camera so we can all see it, and then he ignores it and just babbles away regardless.

Life is way too short to waste listening to that little pissant pretend to be an "expert." On the other hand, hickok45 is my kind of guy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2O7K8MawTs). He knows what he's talking about and he's a damn good shot.

I think Nutnfancy has some interesting videos and gets an 'A' for effort, but I wish he would be a little less verbose. He could condense most of his videos in to 1/5th the length if he stayed on topic and didn't repeat himself so much. He should just type up a one-page report with paragraphs broken up into the headings he wants to cover. That way he can just read it and not be on camera hesitating and trying to remember what he wanted to say. If he just streamlined the process, I'd be able to watch a lot more of his videos.

Wow. hickok45 is great! I couldn't believe it! Not appropriate for the highroad, but he does zombie in a very creative way!

One of hickock45's videos got me really interested in revolvers... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgl8VuX0LuY

It's interesting how guns have the same effect on hickock's microphone as they would on my ear. The sound dims temporarily... and I just never would have expected that. Thought that was all in the brain!

He can be a skosh annoying at times, but his videos were very informative and detailed for the product. The "Sparrow" looks like a great rim-fire suppressor. I really dig the fact the tube isn't threaded so there is very little chance of ever damaging that critical serialized part.

Funny. I don't see any of the critics even attempting to do what he does as far as product reviews. Do a better job or keep your mouth shut.

Exactly. People who use tactical mall ninja phrases like "civilian sheepdog" to refer to CHL holders generally are males in their 40s who haven't had any sexual contact with a human female in the last two decades.

You don't have to do a better job to know that this guy is annoying. I have watched two or three of his videos, and came away feeling like they took 30 minutes to tell me what could have been said in about 2:15, half of which could be found using a search engine. There is no reason to spend 10 minutes reviewing a product you haven't even shot yet. I am going to review my XDM when I get 5,000 rounds through it (it's at about 3600 right now, one year later), a time when I feel my impressions will actually mean something. If I want the opinion of a gun from someone with no real experience with it, I'll ask the guy behind the gun counter.

If you want a good product review by someone who knows what they're doing, and shoots well with it, check out kickedintheballs2000 and hickock45.

You know, he seems like a decent guy. He may even be on THR.

I posted these links because I thought it was interesting to see testing and internals of a sound suppressor that is considered by many to be top of the line. I did not post them to see many comments that are off-topic, stupid or downright disrespectful. Thanks guys.

Don't watch Nutnfancy's video's if you don't like them. I enjoy watching them. If your so good at gear reviews then start your own channel on youtube. Hickok45 is awesome but he's essentially just plinking in his backyard. I'd much rather see some gun's put to the test in the desert. I also like to see all the backpacking gear in use. Nutnfancy has some cool backpacking trips on his channel also. He's not just strictly guns.

Creative insult but I'd wager that I'm not the only one who sees a difference between someone who just happens to have a CHL and someone who considers himself a civilian sheepdog.

Back to the topic...anyone used a Silencerco can? I'm getting the itch for one more and more.

I like watching his videos... they are high production value, he puts a lot of time into editing, has a large selection of weapons in the videos etc etc.

Put simple, there is nobody else doing what he does on the same scale. Sure there are others but not at that scale on youtube.

I am a fan! He does all the research for me and I can make educated decisions based upon his review videos. He us a cool guy and he certainly knows what he's talking about 95% of the time. I however don't like his reviews about guns he has not shot.

Back to SilencerCo performance. The Osprey 45 and Sparrow 22 are awesome! The Sparrow is just sweet to deal with such a filthy cartridge. Makes my Outback 2 a pain in the ass. As for my Osprey 45, its also my Osprey 9mm. Very quiet on my Glock 26, but funny as its dwarfed in size to the 45 Osprey. Awesome customer service too! If you are interested in silencers look no further, really.

Wow the level of thread-jacking and complaining seems to be at an all time high around here. Instead of continuing in this manner how about we all "Take the High Road" and just let it go.Answering the complainer just feeds them, next time we should all just continue with the original topic as if the disruptive posts had been squelched and don't even exist.

Nutnfancy killed a burgular with a .177 pellet rifle. He woke up in the middle of the night and heard a noise. He grabbed his .177 Crosman Pumpmaster and started to pie the corner of his bedroom into the hallway. His wife and kids were fast asleep. Suddenly, the burgular appeared. He was stealing all of his iced tea and potato chips. Nutnfancy quickly shot the perp in the left pinky toe. You guessed it, 1 shot man stopping kill. Luckily he had a suppressor on the gun so his family did not wake up and hear it. Nutnfancy then called the police. They came and picked up the body on the front porch, this happens on a weekly basis.

Yes! Also now Nutnfancy says the phrase "bro ham"

Off topic, but just saw hickok45 hit the gong 4 times on 1 magazine with a Glock 23 (my EDC) at 230 YARDS - many people can't do that with a rifle.

Simply amazing. That bastard can shoot straight!


As to nutnfancy, I like his videos. They seem relevant and informative.

The easiest thing for any of us to do is tear down another human being, rather than focus on their good aspects and the good that they do.

I find it more than a little discouraging that my fellow man has to tear to shreds people they have a lot more in common with than that which they differ with.

And all the focus on how someone speaks, what phraseology they use, and how this all relates to other aspects of their life is pure speculation and conjecture.

I've seen nutnfancy even bring his son on camera with him to demonstrate some fine shooting. He did everything proper, safe and competently.

We need to band together, folks, rather than finding the lamest and most arbitrary reasons to pick each other apart. Start today by reflecting on what's good about people in your family rather than what's bad, and see if you can build from there.

I promise you it will make your life a lot more rewarding.

Just my unsolicited .02

I'm a fan of the gun reviews, true they could be a bit shorter, but they were very thorough. I find them more valuable than the gun magazines. I've personally bought at least two guns that he reviewed and have been VERY happy with them. (Sig 522LR and CZ-75B).

You can tell the guy loves his kids and values spending time with them. If more fathers out there were like that, the world would be a much better place.

As far as the tactical videos go, whether or not they have actual value I can't say since I'm not a cop or military guy....but I'll be the first to admit I think it would be blast to run through one of his gun courses.

The companies that he visits and reviews must be getting a benefit because it's free advertising for them and it must be of some value since they keep giving out coupon codes.

Geez, I'm 43 and I say "dude" and "awesome" all the time. It's not like these two words were invented yesterday for exclusive use on the iPhone only by nonspeaking teenagers.

In fact, I'm sure I heard lots of people say "awesome" after firing a gun in my lifetime (especially after good shots).

I've found that his videos are just too long for me to sit and watch most of them. However, if I'm interested in making an actual purchase and he has done a video on it, I watch the whole thing.

If you don't like the videos don't watch them. Pretty simple right?

I'm also a fan of hickock45's videos. They serve a different purpose though. Nutnfancy is more informational, and hickock45 is more entertaining. Apples to oranges IMO.

If either of you are reading this: Please keep doing what you're doing! I'm glad we have people doing these videos.
