I am amazed at the number of Youtube demos and reviews of just about every firearm out there! Many of them are excellent for honest critiques and downright excellent shooting. Some of them are guys just shooting the bull about their latest purchase. This isn't bad, honest, but you see that they're just joe-bag-o-donuts regarding firearm knowledge.
Then there are, in my opinion, the real yahoos that have no business holding a weapon. I was interested in a firearm, went to Youtube and searched it. I watched this guy sweep his photographer five times in 90 seconds. Yes, we always treat every firearm as loaded. In this case, four times it was "unloaded", the fifth time it was loaded. I did comment to that affect. Wonder if and what the response will be.

I always watch reviews of items Ive purchased or want to purchase. I love Youtube for that fact, and there are some really educational videos on there. Plus I subscribe to about 30 channels, mostly all dedicated to guns or weapons/knives and now starting to watch some "prepping" videos. Of course guns aren't my only passion and I watch some tech videos like Engadget and the NewEgg channel.
I agree about the douches that have no business on there with a gun of any type. I also dont like the cocky commando wanna be's.

There are some good ones. Hickok45, Military Arms, Cory and Erika, tnoutdoors9 exc. exc. Nutnfancy is alright occasionally, if you have 2 hours or so to kill. Of course if you just want to get a "look" at the item your looking to buy, almost any channel will do, but when I want to get a better idea about actual quality and reliability I try and see if one the above channel's has done a video.

You know......I kind of look at things the same way. Thing is......I figure I can do better in a lot of ways. Thing is....I haven't posted any youtube vids (yet) to make things any better. So......I'll defer from commenting on those who have. I've sought plenty of good info on youtube for tying my fishing lines and all has worked out well. Take anything at it's worth.......including me and this forum.

Hickok45 is my go to guy. He always does a great review and shoots quite a bit.

Much like anything on the internet one has to gauge the source quality of the information to determine the validity of its content.

For every good review there are at least 5 bad ones.

Once you watch enough you can usually gauge the quality of the video pretty quick. Then you get a few favorites that you know are going to give quality info and mostly stick to them.
I don't bother commenting on the window licker's videos, I just move on to the next.

It's a lot like sitting around a good gun shop listening to the comments, recommendations, observations & spewing pontifications. The faithful regulars, those who spend their gun money uniquely there and measure experience by the number of five-gallons buckets of spent primers sitting around someone's garage, can spot a rookie shooter the minute one walks in the door. Let that rookie start "telling" rather than "asking" and he's gonna' get...his little feelings hurt. The problem with the internet, tacticool, gun ninja, chuckle heads is that they're exempt from scalding rebuke by the anonymity of their "expertise". They must actually believe we desire their opinion. I don't want to hear them. I don't want to shoot with them. I don't want them on a range in my Time Zone!
A video camera & a handgun does NOT make you Annie Oakley, Ed McGivern, Bill Jordan, Skeeter Skelton, Rob Leatham, Jerry Miculek or Bill Hickok. What is it about guns that makes folks who buy one, suddenly an expert? And what is it about the internet that fills them to comical over-flowing with such transparent horse crap?
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
