Does anyone else watch people shooting guns on youtube and think oh my god, these people have no idea of gun safety and look like complete idiots? It drives me nuts watching most of them.

They make a strong case for teaching firearms safety in high schools.

Yup, makes me want to make a video of CORRECT handling.

But then again, someone will make a comment of what I'm doing wrong.

I'll do it anyways. Stay tuned.

quite often... yes...

April 15, 2008, 01:45 PM
I've just started getting into making videos.
I'm not sure when I'll put up some shooting videos, since I normally shoot with friends where it doesn't really work well to take the time of setting up the camera for good angles and such.

Antis could have a field day with the fodder some gun handlers post on that site.

Oh yeah. Loaded guns pointed at range ceilings, fingers on triggers, idiots speed shooting, giving the wife a .50 cal desert eagle, people trying to look cool for the camera, two guns at once, etc. Why would you post a video of yourself or friends looking like complete idiots?

April 15, 2008, 04:45 PM
I honestly think 95% of the people posted on youtube look like idiots gun related or not. The more serious gun related videos almost seem to be put up there just to make gun owners look bad.

I tend to stay away from the idiot ones like "guy shoots shotgun one-handed OMG!" videos). Usually, you'll see the shooters acting safely...usually

Most of the videos are bad but I have stumbled across a few "how-to" videos involving field stripping that have been especially helpful when I want to look at the inards of a gun without having to ask the service person to break the gun down. (It's ok I always ask before I start taking stuff apart)

Here is one video that will surely help you.

This guy is one of the best I have ever seen. I would love to spend a day with TJ. Talking about a shooter..........wowser......This dude can shoot.

Here is the video -

When I see videos containing obviously unsafe behavior, I flag them for rules violation.

April 15, 2008, 05:02 PM
I've obtained field stripping videos for all my guns. There's good and bad videos. Unfortunately, the few bad videos overshadow the many good videos.

Youtube is also a means for pro-gun people like me to collect pro-gun videos and share in one central location…

There was one video I recall of some kid about 19 it seemed, sitting at the computer on video, talking in smug tones about his "bad boy" new Desert Eagle or something....then the gun discharged because he was waving it around in the house.

The videos where I expect such idiocy, seem to usually involve a dumb-bunny or two in the background, guffawing and shouting deep things, like: "Holy Spiff!" or whatever.

One time I saw a video of a ND where a kid was talking about how his k98 wasn't firing when he pulled the trigger. As you can guess, it fired when the camera was rolling.
There are some fake ones (I think that desert eagle one is a known fake), but the recoil from the way he was holding it and the sound seemed pretty real.

Wow, I just watched that todd Jarrett Video and I wish I wasn't at my school so I could practice doing the things he is saying! amazing stuff

P.S. Does anyone know what kind of gun he is shooting?

April 15, 2008, 07:45 PM
Especially the ones where the chicks shoot the full autos in swimsuits!
Now dont get me wrong I like chicks in swimsuits and full autos --I just think the ANTIS could have a ball with them!!!

Just a thought, and a suggestion, not a criticism:

I see a lot of complaining here about the poor examples of firearms related videos at YouTube, and some praise of some of the good videos about firearms thre, but have any of you posted your own videos relative to firearms at YouTube. It surely is not difficult to make a video that is worth posting if only to try to tilt the odds in favor of those that show proper firearms handling technique. Why talk about all the ammunition that the less than proficient place on YouTube for the antis, why not do something to support our side instead.

I can tell you from experience that you do not need to be a director, nor a movie star to place a video there about firearms. There are now 19 posts in this thread. If there was one video for each post, well think about it. It would be 19 better videos for the public to view in which they could learn about responsible firearms handling. I guess i just thought up a weekend project for myself, a new video for YouTube and for my blog.

All the best,
Glenn B

This one gives a warm fuzzy...

Sometimes, but I don't watch the ones that appear to be done by half-witts much.

April 15, 2008, 07:57 PM
I was actually told to watch the one where the girl knocks herself out with a DE .50 by a girl at a gun shop!

April 15, 2008, 08:39 PM
but have any of you posted your own videos relative to firearms at YouTube.

Comments or suggestions for videos appreciated.

April 15, 2008, 08:50 PM
Glenn thats a good idea, but i dont have a camera.
DKsimon, that Todd Jarrett stuff is awesome. Lets me know how far I have to go. I liked the other videos of Rob Leatham.

All of these videos are amazing. Needless to say I spent about half an hour drooling

I stopped watching television a little over a year ago. Since then I spend much more time searching for media on the internet. I find that much like television and hollywood, you have to trudge thru some pretty gross muck before you find a decent amount of value on the internet. Think about how much useless or offensive content is on television every hour of every day. Now think of how easy it is to air useless or offensive content on the internet. My suggestion is weed out the bad, and share the good. When you see a quality video tell people about it and leave positive feedback.

Those were come informative videos...and I got a kick out of him shooting the .50 while riding on top of the BLACKHAWK! bus :)

Off topic, but today a local trooper told me about an old incident in Georgia where a highway patrolman there was shot during a traffic stop. He said it was on youtube, so I searched for and watched it and several others. Real sad stuff right there. Reminds me how much risk those poor folks face each day on the job.

Todd Jarrett shoots his .45 like it's a .22lr.
