I recently started a youtube channel (www.youtube.com/concealedcarry365) And for the life of me I can't seem to think of anything interesting to go on it. Atleast nothing that a ton of other people haven't already put on their channels. Obviously I would like it to be firearms related but what should I do? I want it to be entertaining and informative. Any ideas? Anyone? :confused:

Walk bowlegged and carry a big schtick.

Jump off a roof into a barrel full of Mosen-Nagants with fixed bayonets.

You are bound to get lots of hits!
It might even go viral, posthumously.

Wouldn't be any stupider them most of the YouTube stuff I don't even bother to look at anymore.

Oddly enough, I considered the mosin Idea for a second.

So,
Let me see if I get this right?

You want to promote a PUBLIC youtube site that promotes: "CONCEALED CARRY"?

What is it about the word "concealed" that you don't seem to understand?

Or, from "The Princess Bride":

"You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means."

I fail to see the harm in promoting legal concealed carry.

Do something on cc with a big gun. Maybe a 44 mag. 6"barrel. Iwb or ankle holster.

Do one on concealed carrying a mosin nagant! Then jump into the barrel full of them.

Yeah I second that idea. I would love to see some really good info on concealing big hand cannons, especially since the big boys are what my main interest is in. I make a lot of holsters and such, my latest attempt was to make a shoulder rig for a full size 1911 to try and wear under a T-shirt. It's unfortunately still easy to spot, even after several changes and adjustments from the original configuration. My 1911 is one of my smallest handguns, so some good info on this would be highly useful.

Or demonstrate how safe a 1911 really is. Load one up, safety off, and do a full session of aerobics.

If you really want hits for a gun-related youtube channel, just shoot your daughter's computer. Instant fame!

Something involving a drop test?

In all seriousness, if you're not sure what to do, don't do it. I have a job that recruits a lot of people, many recently out of college and we surely search all on-line services to learn more about the real you. And it's a lot harder to remain as anonymous as you would like. If you've already been successful in life, then consider it, if you really have a special value, skill or talent then consider doing it. I happen to think that Hancock45 has a foot in both camp and consider him a treasure.
If you're just doing it, don't.

The guy that shot himself while demonstrating fast-draw got a lot of hits. But he didn't do it from concealment, while jumping off a roof into a barrel full of Mosin Nagants with fixed bayonets. And they should be rusty, BTW, for extra style points. Maybe yell something about Vikings on your way down.

I always told people that if I was going to off myself this would be the way I'd do it. You'd be the only guy that ended up in the news for suicide by fixed bayonet, perhaps in history.

Why does a person who has nothing to say on Topic X open a youtube channel on Topic X?

Maybe demo CCW a 500 smithin an IWB. Tuckable of course.

Seriously maybe size of CCW vs brandishing.

At least you're wise enough to recognize that. Most of what is on YouTube does't have anything actually interesting to say.

To actually put anything out to the public that is interesting usually requires time and money that few people have to invest.

Hahaha! This is the reason why I’m afraid of starting a blog. At a certain point you just don’t have any ideas.

'YouTube' and 'interesting' in the same sentence?
YT, Blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, MySpace, and on and on.....A lot of people "seem to lack inspiration".

dont be afraid of the basics many people search these videos are not experts maybe a couple videos on holster choices, why you chose the guns you currently own, or even best caliber choices.

Whatever you do, please don’t give us the typical Youtube audio that usually goes something like this.

“This is er ah er like a gun and like er ah you know like I want to er like you know like to er ah you know.” And on and on

If you've got nothing to say, simply remain silent.

The header on my California CCW says this:

So far, I haven't found anyone who can tell me what "or Other Firearm..." means.

Maybe you could find out.

kudos for taking a glock apart without putting your hand in front of the muzzle

may i suggest more light...and better directed.
for an idea how about showing the importance of proper lubrication. run a gun that you know don't like to be dry and than a few squirts of rem oil.

Wrong, wrong, wrong. They are all wrong. Here's what you do. You gotta have a hook. Something no one else has done. So you make all your vids wearing a pink tutu. And for your first vid you demonstrate how to concealed carry one those tiny mini cannons.

Go to your local OWS (occupy wall street) while open carrying something big. See how many liberals yell at you.And try to get what they say. Should be fun.
