    This guy is making himself look very ignorant. He doesn't think it's necessary to treat every gun as if it's loaded. Fool.

    Do you guys think he's wrong? I sure do. Just ask Clint Smith what he thinks about sweeping yourself during the making of a gun video. He would rip you a new one bud.

    I think it's a parody. See below by the same poster.

    So, he is running Ads on his Videos.

    You actually wasted your time watching.

    He ends up making some cash for acting like an idiot online.

    My guess is that he is nothing like that in person; probably quite intelligent.

    What people will do/say to get traffic to their YouTube.

    If the chamber is closed, the firearm is loaded, even when it's not.

    I agree with a lot of what he said. In the context he's talking about, such as dry fire practice, working on guns, showing off gun features in videos, etc... You have to make sure the gun is unloaded and then trust that it is. He's not saying to pick up every gun you see, assume it's not loaded and sweep little kids and old ladies with it. Context people.

    Who is Clint Smith? And why would anyone care what he thinks about sweeping yourself?


    I agree with what he was saying.

    Common sense is lacking in alot of people though. So they'll miss what he was saying.

    Forgive me if you where being sarcastic...

    "Sweeping yourself" refers to pointing the muzzle at your own body.

    Clint Smith is the President of Thunder Ranch...

    He makes even more sense in part 2 of that daily rant, completely different topic, not sure why it's a two part video.

    I'm fully aware of what "sweeping" yourself, or someone else is.


    That said, after watching his video, if someone posted a negative comment because he "swept" himself holding a pistol by the barrel, and the rear end, so he could show the camera what the gun looked like, then I think he's absolutely in the right.


    Again, he was right. There are times where certain rules of firearms do not apply. And you need to use a little common sense when handling them/the application of them.

    At a basic level, its ok to be super hard on the rules, and keep on it till you've beaten it into the students. But as skills and familiarity increase, the rules change/ and/or don't apply like they did before.

    Like I said, common sense.

    It sounds to me like the guy really is talking about safety nazis. Not your average very safety conscious person like a lot of us, but rather that guy who takes every ridiculous opportunity to go off the deep end about safety. And we all know they are out there.

    Yeah, the same kind of zero tolerance mentality that gets kids expelled from school for having an asprin or a rubber band.

    What I'm saying is Clint Smith always makes a point NOT to sweep yourself when doing weapons manipulation. Whether the guns loaded or not.

    Agreed.

    That's the way I handle my firearms, period. The only time the barrel is pointed at me or anyone else, is when it's field stripped and out of the gun. That's just me, and I was curious what you guys felt about it.

    Thanks for your replies guys.

    If you ALWAYS treat a gun like it's loaded, you could never get in any dry fire practice.

    Once you verify that it is unloaded, it is unloaded. It's not going to load itself.
