You always pull the bolt back first to make sure the sear is what's holding the bolt.

It's not about ability. It's about dropping 5 figures of donations on a historical artefact and then misusing it dangerously on broadcast video.
>>
He makes firearms related original content, something that /k/ has been nearly incabale of for almost a decade. It's his first time shooting that gun so mistakes were made.
>>
>>47975311
Whenever it stops firing (it could be empty or it could be jammed), the first thing you do is pull the bolt back. He's shot dozens of MG's at RIA and Julia's and knows better. But no corrections, no annotations.

Stopping to figure out what's wrong when you're splitting cases should is desire-to-live sense. Let alone when your job for a decade has been to study the mechanisms people have had to devise to keep those pressures contained until they fall to save levels.

not gonna watch the video and give him ad money but did he even buy it? To my understanding doesnt ian borrow 90% of the guns he shoots

"I have a type 96 nambu" "Just got my hands on this"
"It was in fact a badly maintained chamber. After getting home from this filming I gave it a more thorough cleaning and inspection and it should be fine now."
He's not fixing and cleaning some rando's gun.
>>

Very few here "fellate" him. You must spend too much time on reddit, where they do. Most topics that mention him are trashing him and very few defend him.

A single error, does not a dumbass make. The dude has likely forgotten more about guns than you've ever known. I get that /k/ hates anybody who actually makes money with guns, but ffs the sperging out over FW is just exhausting. Every fucking day with these threads "THESE JOOTOOBERS ARENT ALLTHAT GUD!" The jealousy is pathetic, and you're only increasing his exposure with these panty wetting posts. If you don't like a youtuber, stop advertising for them.

what if it's not, and you chamber and fire another round because you didn't pull the magazine out first
>>
>>47974835
his content is friendly, approachable, and has some good meme moments. that's why he's well known. people fellate him because of a sorta dunning-kruger effect. i've seen at least 5 tards who just parroted him to sound like a firearms "expert".
>>
>>47977217
if there's a sear malfunction you'll notice it when pulling the bolt back, and can hold it back and then pull the mag

The drill for open bolt guns is magazine out first, then bolt back. If you don't know that, you're retard.
>>
>>47977226
so what's the reason you don't pull the magazine first
>>
>>47975727

An open bolt gun is "safe" if the bolt is forward. If something goes wrong why would you pull the bolt back making the gun ready to fire?
>>
>>47977219
>his content is friendly, approachable, and has some good meme moments
Exactly. His channel is great because he's built a network of people/organizations that let him handle rare/unique firearms, and he shoots and presents the videos pretty well. They're enjoyable.

He is not an expert, or even an authority, on mechanical engineering, small arms development, cartridge development, or ballistics. He's simply a very interested hobbyist who ended up getting big because of his networking. AFAIK he has never even worked a real job since college besides being a bartender and installing solar panels.

I honestly love his enthusiasm but I'm worried he's starting to believe his own hype. The whole cult of personality that people have built around him is weird as shit. I have to say though I honestly would not be aware of some aspects of firearms development if it wasn't for him.
>>
>>47977279
Exactly. You remove the magazine first so when you pull the bolt back there's no risk of it slamming forward and firing another round.

Lo and behold the shitposters don't know shit about guns.

If it's pointing down range who gives a shit honestly.
This is some pure autism shit

>>47975073
FPBP. Exactly what I came here to say. I don't think he pretends to be good at manuals of arms. He doesn't get to shoot most of the guns he analyzes.
>>
>>47977566
one idiot on a range in the middle of arizona doing something stupid? i don't give a shit. all his viewers watching and not seeing the hazard? i give a shit. some fucking moron goes to his local rental range and accidentally blows a hole in his friend? i'll get blamed for it by politicians. i'm pissed.
>>
>>47977558
the Thompson is absolutely one specific gun
"boomer" is the wrong word because that applies to people born after WW2, but I guess the boomers could have been indoctrinated by their parents

How is that related to this video?
How could that even happen because of this video?

that's how he's handling guns when someone's downrange

this may surprise you, but the internet is full of retards such as yourself.
they will watch ian handling things stupidly, and then imitate him.

that NDs are bad when you have the gun pointed in a safe direction at the range?

>or even an authority, on mechanical engineering,
Nigger if you think you need a PhD in mechanical engineering to talk about guns you're a retard. Do you also dismiss what anyone has to say about cars because they don't have published papers on combustion dynamics?
Guns are mechanically simple objects, it is part of what makes them appealing.

Please point out the video and time where he called himself an expert
>>
>>47974835
If the bolt is jammed forward on an open bolt you remove the mag first, the chamber is already filled or blocked so you don't have anything to do there until you get rid of potential ammunition sources.
>>
>>47977406
That is a magazine change, not dealing with a malfunction you mook.

Who the fuck is going to own an open bolt MG besides richfags? Youre argument implies that a 16 year old kid first time out with his MP40 is going to ND while someone is downrange?
