Watch: How to Spot Fake Gun Experts
Kevin Felts 08.11.17
Paul Harrell is one of those underappreciated YouTube personalities. He has been on YouTube since 2012, yet only has 40k subscribers. What does that mean? It means you should over to his channel and subscribe.
In this video Paul talks about how to spot a fake gun expert. For the most part, I agree with him on the examples.
However, we all have a brain fart from time to time. Sooner or later we will “all” say something that does not make sense. Someone hearing or reading that brain fart may say, “That guy is an idiot.”
The honest truth is, the majority of shooters are men. When men are standing around talking, there will always be a certain level of machismo. Few men want to appear that they know little on a given topic, especially a manly topic like firearms.
Please take a few minutes and watch the video.
I am guilty of studying ballistics charts, especially when I was younger and reloading. How a certain grain bullet from one cartridge performs so much better than other cartridges always intrigued me. Such as, the difference between the 30-30 Winchester, 308 and 30-06.
In the video Paul talks about the “just as powerful” guys. If someone can only afford a used, beat up rifle, then own it. Brag about, talk about, learn about it.. etc. There is no reason to be ashamed of it. On the flip side of the coin, there is no need to belittle someone because they can not afford the latest and greatest.
On a certain Internet forum I am of, some of the members constantly post how much money they spent on firearm accessories. One guy posts about his $1,200 optic. Reading about someone who has a $1,200 optic, makes my $150 Primary Arms red dot feel inferior. So, I can understand someone attempting to justify how much they can afford to spend on their firearms. There is no reason to get into a pissing match over anything, much less firearms.
Special thank you to Paul Harrell for the outstanding video.
