    I try to avoid these comments but since Mr. VSorrentino insists on spamming this same message and link on every shooting board on the internet, I believe he is bringing the attention to himself.

    I find it shameful that these types of videos are posted as an example to emulate. As pointed out on other forums Mr. VSorrentino points his firearm at his own head at least twice, although he later edited it out. The demonstrations are very poor and if anything, are an example of what not to do.

    Unfortunately, whether out of sheer ignorance or some morbid twist of rationale, amateurs will post videos of themselves shooting. That, in and of itself, I do not have a problem with. I do have a problem when they spread it around, asking you to subscribe, and with no instructor credibility indicate that their methods should be followed.

    Sorry, I'm not trying to make it a rant. I just have to say that there are people who may look to this as an example believing it to have training value because it is represented as such. It does not. Responsible shooters do not do this. This video is not a good representation of safe shooters and quality instructing in the least.

    To be clear. I am not saying amateurs shouldn't post shooting videos. Have at it. Just don't share with the world that it is a "training video" and ask for subscribers.

    P.S. VSorrentino, you can sign up at my website and I will let you know when I am presenting a basic firearms safety class in your area.

    Spamming...This will probably be closed but it is a good one to discuss IMHO...

    Martial artists and shooters who are new, seem to like to show selves:confused:

    Asking the OP, where did you get your training, and expertise, curious;)

    Regards

    No one should emulate what is shown in those videos. Post #2 was a good summary.

    Muzzle, finger, cover, stop.

    Roll-step or hop, don't cross your legs when walking sideways.
