Good entertainment with good information. What could be better?
I've recently just learned of his videos and such and find them pretty good so far.

Actually, sheepdogs primary function is to protect the flock, not round them up for slaughter. They live with sheep 100% of the time and become very protective of them when threatened with attack. They are not a pet to the shepherd. I doubt they are very often, if ever, beaten. It simply wouldn't benefit the shepherd to run an expensive dog that he wants to protect his herd off by beating him.Sheep dogs don’t act W/ the best interests of the sheep in mind they act on behalf of the shepherd who generally is the oppressor of the sheep. The sheepdog does whatever the shepherd tells him to do without any concern for the well being of the sheep. Round the sheep up so they can be sheered. Round them up so their young can be taken for sale or slaughter. Round them up so they can be sold or slaughtered. Sheep dog control the sheep by intimidation and force occasionally they kill a sheep.
Sheep dogs have no discernment, they will lick the hand of a cruel master just as quickly (sometimes more quickly) as they will a good master. They will keep coming back no matter how often the master beats them. They eat the scraps that the master leaves them and when they are of no further use to the shepherd they are put down. A lot of them die from rattlesnake bites because they can’t help sticking their nose into things that don’t concern them.
There are other dogs that herd sheep, or cattle, or horses, or whatever other livestock a rancher may have. I doubt they get beat very often, either. They are, for the most part, natural "herders" and are generally treated very well. You obviously have not had much experience being around many of these working dogs that you have so much to tell us about.
Personally, though, I would prefer that the people around me were those that are being described by the "sheepdog" analogy rather than those that would witness someone becoming the victim of a violent crime and walk on by whistling, pretending they don't see whats going on.....

I agree that "nutnfancy" does a great job. I have found his videos, especially his gun reviews, informative and helpful.
Although I think nutnfancy has a few good videos I just find him to drag on too much and be, at times, very biased about certain weapons. This is not to say his videos are bad... just things that bother me about them.
"YOU TUBE" gun reviews with take-down and reassembly advice and demonstrations are great! I review and use them with my weapons, and have kept them clean...so far.
he seems not to realize that other compact/sub-compact guns besides glocks take their big brothers mags.
Wow! "not knowledgeable", "Doesn't know what he's talking about". Are you serious?
Dang man, give the dude a break. Hating on Nutn, why? He seems like a standup guy, doing something that he likes to do and sharing it for free. What's not to like about that.
They're his opinions of what he's checking out at the time, and you're not meant to agree with everything. Call it the (Home shopping Network) except for guns and gear. It's better than seeing a static page on the internet and a brief summery written by the manufacture or marketing team telling ya exactly what they want you to hear, or read. Not to mention, that the dude must spend a ton of time doing it. I for one admire his efforts and appreciate the hands on attention that the guy adds to the experience. FWIW

Nutnfancy has been a fantastic resource for me. I love his material.

yeah i've been checking out his channel a little over a year...very informative..specially like it when he went HD. although almost every review i watch he runs out of battery half way through...just plug in bro.
Nutnfancy is great! A lot of people are just jealous. I know I wish I could spend all the time and do all the stuff outdoors that he does!!
I found defensivecarry.com because of nutnfancy. On one of his videos some comments were made that included a reference to this site...so maybe I went backwards...
Anyway I've been a nutnfancy subscriber for a few years now...the guy has over 500 videos and still posting!!
I love his "survivalist" videos - he has a great one on building a deer snare. I'd love to try it, but don't want to go to jail for poaching!
Regarding his bio: don't really know but I watched a few vids he did while "deployed," which I took to mean Iraq or Afghanistan...
He's the man!!
