Anyone can be negative if they choose! As said well above!!! Stay Positive & Be Safe!!!
I would have retaken the video.
Poor women named Karen who have to put up with this contemporary assault on them and their name.
now you have some content for your audience, you can add a quick blip about the firearm being cleared, thank your audience for all their comments and suggestions, and then you'll have more content.
I view a number of Youtube videos on firearms. I post some negative comments or corrections. Usually about facts that could (SHOULD) be determined prior to publishing. I am thoroughly disgusted by those who refer to a Smith & Wesson 1946-ish .38 Hand Ejector as a "Model 10". Handling errors, unless egregious, not so much.
I don't watch Glock videos much. Nothing personal, but Glock videos just don't interest me.
Total of 14 comments. Not a major issue.
Assumptions like that are how people are injured in NDs. No gun is "cleared" unless you clear it yourself or see it cleared. Therefore, if someone doesn't see it cleared they are reasonably going to question if it is. If they are properly trained they'll check it themselves in spite of having seen it "cleared" by another.
Trey quality people think good of you , who cares what stupid people think ,Take care....buddy.
Great video, and i think you answered your own questions. sure there are trolls but there are some who are way more Stricter than us when he comes to Firearms handling. The longer we do this the more confident and relaxed we become around Firearms and that can lead to accidents and accidental discharge.
"Wow , i am so interested in hearing why you know that X is the best caliber ever and waste 20 minutes of my life arguing something that ultimately just comes down to personal preference. Your opinion, I mean "your wisdom" has totally enlightened me and I will now sell everything I have that isn't of that caliber"
And that is the story of why Bubba converted all his milsurp rifles into .30 Gibbs, including his M1 Garand which now has a bent operating rod.
My example had to do with revolvers, and it was soooo poorly done and obviously biased I promised I would never post it on THR.
BUT...I can PM the link to you if you want!
(And no...I didn't post any comments to his video. I could see the writing on the wall on that one!)
I have watched your videos and I have no criticisms about the general portrayal of information or delivery. I see vids with self muzzle swipes all the time and though I do not try to let things like that happen with me, Im sure it does and nitpicking about it does nothing.
Dont actually do this....but tell all your detractors to go out and make their own videos. I bet you dont get any takers.
are this guy
Envy can create its own resentment.
Following the senseless tragedy on that Hollywood movie set, the "armchair safety commandos" might multiply for a while.
I will also grow thicker skin. Haven't really had any negative comments on my videos before, or, at least ones completely off base, so two in the same video took me by surprise.
You should make a spoof video dedicated to "Those concerned" by clearing the pistol and showing/doing all the things you SHOULDN'T DO with a pistol ...
Yes and yes (but not necessarily worthy of derision).
There's no doubt that YouTube comment sections attracts more than their share of tolls. But allowing the muzzle to sweep any part of your body, including fingers and letting a finger slip into the trigger guard are unsafe acts. If you had been shooting in USPSA competition and observed doing such by the range officer, you could have been disqualified.
But from another perspective, if you are posting videos in order to demonstrate something to those who watch them, remember that some of those who watch are firearm novices who might not know better. So you might consider making it a special point to model "gold standard" gun handling practices to reinforce those practices for novices.
I'd want three or four, all with about a dozen replies. Heck, that YouTube algorithm needs more vigor!!
Seriously, considering the mentality of YouTube commenters, that's nothing to sweat over.
#1, Finger on the trigger.
#2, muzzle pointed directly at your hand.
#3, not handling the gun as though it were loaded in general.
You did break 3 of the 4 primary gun safety rules at the same time.
Once you finished each round of fire, yeah, we did see the slides lock back on the last ejection, but you failed to remove the magazines. A fine point, but it shows a diligence of safe use that doesn't appear to be there if you don't. I felt that your gun handling was too casual for the sake of a video. The camera was too close to give an overall view of what you did with them outside the camera's field. As for having served in 3 branches of the military.....well, thanks for your service, but three of them? It's apparent you're comfortable around firearms, but maybe too casual for the average Joe, and a bit careless.
And, FWIW, I'm an NRA certified firearms instructor, CRSO, and have military and law enforcement training as my creds. I would have called you on several of the things I saw had I been there.
Such as safe gun handling.
so did I.
