    Not defending or supporting YM, but generally your statement is incorrect. YT routinely demonitizes gun channels. So he's very probably not making much, if anything from YT. He does have a patreon account that people donate to and last I heard, he purchases one or more pistols a month and donates them to folks that can't afford a pistol.

    He's also an avid supporter of the group 2nd on the 2nd (or whatever it's called) and routinely speaks out on 2A rights to educate people. I support his efforts in that.

    As far as his channel, like anyone on YT, I agree with some content and disagree with some content. He's entertaining and he's often right. He did call out YT channels that get paid for their reviews. He's not shy about calling out the NRA for what they do and don't do. And he's often funny. The stuff I don't agree with I discard like I would with anyone on YT.

    His videos on the 19X are hilarious!

    You'd have to ask the guy at the end of page 3.

    He likes to carry a rino revolver, that should explain a little more about this lil fella.

    Found the video I was referring to earlier, hilarious. And I agree with him. Glad I didn't pay $600 for my 19X (I got it new for a LOT less).

    He's probably mad at Glock that his Glocks quit working after he modified them. That seems to be a common theme with self-taught Glock smiths, according to what I see in General Glocking.

    I would say he did too much LSD as a kid.

    He’s a self appointed, know it all, youtube expert, that has a screw loose. IMHO, this goofy, simple ass should be taken with a large grain of salt.

    I used to watch him and found some of his takes kind of interesting ... for awhile.
    But he soon became tiresome. His infantile sense of humor got old quickly as did his obvious attempts to be controversial and outrageous.
    I stopped subscribing to him probably a year ago and don't miss his schtick one bit.

    He's a gun lover stuck in a frothing-at-the-mouth, retarded liberal's body.

    Watched his stuff for a while, then decided he's just an obnoxious blow hard.

    And not even a little funny, not sure where users here see the comedy.

    I lol at a lot of his stuff. When he's bad mouthing the 19X and then holds it up and then scratches his head with it...that's funny. He's controversial on purpose on a lot of topics. No problem with that. I don't agree on some stuff and do agree on other stuff.

    I don't watch a lot of his videos but those I have watched I generally enjoyed.

    I can't watch his videos. Not only is he stuck in a 1980's time warp, he's more annoying that the north woods mosquitos we have in Minnesota.

    He is unwatchable. His humor is 3rd grade level.

    He is just another Talking Head on a You Tube gun channel. I use to listen to him a few years back for mostly Comic Relief but I did not learn much at all from him. A while ago I just stopped listening and I don't miss him at all!

    He can get money by clicking on his stuff. He has nothing special to offer other than rants. You either watch it because you agree with him or you just like watching train wrecks.

    I don't watch him. He just irritates me badly.
