    A lot of us less computer savvy old guys might not know what a great resource YouTube is for gun information. It is truly an astounding resource of good technical information and firearm demonstration, not just of idiots bump-firing and having comical kabooms.

    Hundreds of heroic posters at YouTube have made videos of product and gun demos and evaluations, and cleaning/stripping/assembly/tuneup proceedures. Even old manufacturer sales demo tapes are available! Everything is searchable, and links lead to further links, so that you can just search for a particular brand name and model and likely find dozens of useful short videos.

    Even old coots like me can find tons of useful firearm videos on YouTube! Just try not to get sidetracked watching young fools have kabooms......................elsullo :laugh:

    I'm also amazed at all the useful gun-related information you can find on YouTube. I found a great video there on how to properly clean and maintain your Glock. The internet is such a great resource for finding out anything about anything. :)

    Isn't YouTube neat? There's a TON of stuff on there that's gun related. I've spent many hours of my life following the videos.

    Somebody probably reported your videos, you might be able to counter that.

    It was probably 10 years ago that I realized I needed a better slide release for my Glock. After purchasing one, I realized I had no idea how to install it. Thanks to YouTube, I had the job done in half an hour, and it's made a huge improvement to my Glock!

    Obviously someone did. I filled out the appeal BS.
    They sent me something saying *** Child safety/Pornography/explotation? ***
    and community guidelines violated and the account is permanently closed.

    I don't know what the heck they were talking about or how gun video's = child porn ?

    But it suck's we had some really old video's that I don't have on my computer anymore and now they are gone.:(

    You Tube Videos are great. :)
    With their help, I've found out how to change the head lamp and find the battery in my 2008 Equinox.:D
    But, even with the well done video on how to replace the trigger on my Kel Tek P9, the kit
    is still sitting in the back of my safe...:(

    I’m sorry to hear about that... If you’re ever really upset over it and can’t get your mind off that or some other crap, just go report a couple posters the same as they did to you.

    I was initially thinking that maybe your channel did not comply with some advertising crap YouTube seems to be doing now days.

    Why would I report someone just to mess with them, Seem's kind stupid.
    Youtube and Google can suck it in my opinion.

    I know a couple other MFG's like us they pulled the same sheet on.
    Just happened to be 3 day's after the Vegas shooting...........

    Even had some Jerk calling us wanting to buy a Glock FA kit to do a Term paper on.
    College kid's these day's:(
    Canceled that order and blacklisted his entire town in CA for a month from sale's.

    I mean, to me a G18 is about the only Glock I was interested in until somebody shoved a G43 into my hands last week... to be honest. I was raised to like metal frames.

    To get some sort of revenge, return fire with fire? You’re right tho, and I’m sure there are much better things to do with your time than to mess around with lame opinion channels on YouTube. I know I have better things to do anyway, just a funny thought tho.
