Cool Gun Video Thread

Post by Netpackrat » Wed Jun 03, 2020 4:35 am

I usually post this stuff in "Does Not Follow" but it occurred to me that perhaps a general thread for shooting/gun videos would be better, such that things would be easier to find later on rather than getting lost in the thread of total randomness. Would be nice if we could also embed videos in our posts...

For a starter, here is Ian of Forgotten Weapons taking us through the whole process of buying a rifle at auction. One of the auction houses sponsored the video by giving him a budget to work with and turning him loose. Having had no exposure to that path of buying a firearm, I found it to be particularly interesting.

I saw that today. I think he is doing a bang up job.

The 'auction trick' was particularly awesome. Very nice set of rifles he picked up. Also, I should look into a C&R...

That was the feel good video of the day.

Looks like you'll have plenty of .300 Blackout for range day.

YT has suggested a couple of reloading videos from this guy for me lately; he seems to make a lot of sense.

Somehow this video has managed to get to nearly 1000 views in the month and a half since I uploaded it. :o

The avalanche has already started. It is too late for the pebbles to vote.
