His historical knowledge is far better than his shooting ability, but it's far better than the pretentious attitude Karl always carries with him
>>47974835i dont think anyone calls him an expert but himself. he is a self proclaimed expert with no credentials but his own made up persona. learn to spot the difference
>>47974835With any open bolt gun, you remove the ammo source first retard.
>>47974835desperation for pure gun autism.Everyone makes mistakes.
>>47974835We dont. At least I don't he's a hack and so is Karl the Kuck
>>47974835He seems like a sperg but good on him making a living playing with guns
>>47975145>couldn't watch 5 seconds of the bottom clip>calls others retardYou always pull the bolt back first to make sure the sear is what's holding the bolt.
>>47975073It'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.
>>47975311Whenever 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.
>>47975282not 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
>>47975585They were ripping the neck off because of a cruddy chamber, not rupturing
>>47975619"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.
>>47974835Very 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.
>>47974835>>47975111>>47975585A 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.
>>47974835>Imagine being an autistic nitpicking videos of someone you don't like in order to post your findings on a cantonese shadow puppet forum as a definitive gotcha moment when everybody literally could not give less of a fuck about your crusade on a youtube figureLEL
>>47975703>don't want people to ND>don't want people to kaboom from easily avoidable behaviour>nitpicking
>>47975619>don't wanna give him ad moneygood news anon
>>47975648>>47975619It might be his Dad's. His dad is mega into weeb guns
>>47975197what if it's not, and you chamber and fire another round because you didn't pull the magazine out first
>>47974835his 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".
>>47977217if there's a sear malfunction you'll notice it when pulling the bolt back, and can hold it back and then pull the mag
>>47974835>Comparing him to the boomer who people used to roast here all the time for muzzle sweeping his camera man
>>47977226The drill for open bolt guns is magazine out first, then bolt back. If you don't know that, you're retard.
>>47977226so what's the reason you don't pull the magazine first
>>47975727That's a pretty reddit attitude if I say so myself
>>47974835>>47975585An 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 momentsExactly. 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.
>>47977279Exactly. 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.
>>47975197>let's turn this jam into a double feed
>>47977226Did your daddy teach you that?
>>47977238Anon likes to live life on the edge
>>47977321right, so OP is a fag
>>47977292>He is not an expert, or even an authority, on mechanical engineeringPretty sure he was an engineer before his youtube took off
>>47977400he's college educated as a machinist tech or something
>>47977400>>47977403>He holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology from Purdue University, a NIMS Level 1 CNC operator’s certificate, andfrom Headstamp Publishing's About page
>>47977406oh, it's some fucking boomer ass fudlore trying to apply something from one specific boomer gun to ALL open bolt firearmsinteresting
>>47977417yeah, he's not an engineer
>>47977410>double feed>only thing holding bolt back is the round stuck half in the mag and half in then chamber. >pull mag without cocking the bolt>round drops free, bolt flies home, round is now in battery and detonatesCongrats, you just ND'ed a machine gun because you're a fuckin idiot.
>>47977236>>47977238>>47977316read op. watch literally 5 seconds of the second video you low-attention-span speds>>47977410>fudlore>one specific boomer gunleave
>>47977480If it's pointing down range who gives a shit honestly.This is some pure autism shit
>>47975073FPBP. 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.
>>47977566one 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.
>>47977558the 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
>>47977580>touching the guns when there's people downrange
>>47977585read the post instead of skimming it
>>47977580>some fucking moron goes to his local rental range and accidentally blows a hole in his friend? i'll get blamed for itHow is that related to this video?How could that even happen because of this video?
>>47977593read >>47977580>some fucking moronthat's how he's handling guns when someone's downrange>>47977619this may surprise you, but the internet is full of retards such as yourself. they will watch ian handling things stupidly, and then imitate him.
>>47977642there is noone downrange in his entire video, anon
>>47977664what's your argument again?that NDs are bad when you have the gun pointed in a safe direction at the range?
>>47977666satan, you are either too retarded to handle guns or are intentionally missing my point to try and piss me off. either way i'm done, good night.
>>47977671no, anon, it is you who is retarded
>>47977292>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.t. An actual engineer
FORGOTTEN WEAPONS YES
>>47975111Please point out the video and time where he called himself an expert
>>47974835If 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.
>>47977406That is a magazine change, not dealing with a malfunction you mook.
>>47974835Fucking hate this ponytailed fruit bat. What a fag. All his knowledge is Wiki level. And he’s got major memory problems since he thinks MG42 and M2 are Forgottennnnnnn Weapons. What a shitbag.
>>47982118Half the wiki articles out there are written based on his vids, that or Popenker's website.
ITT /k/ still proves they're easily trolled by subpar /pol/ bait
>>47975282What are you gonna do about it? Complain on a chinese cartoons message board? Hahahaha pussy. You can't do SHIT.
>>47975111>no credentials Technical Advisor:Association of Firearm and Toolmark ExaminersBoard Of Directors:National Firearms Act Trade & Collectors Association He has a degree in mechanical engineering from Purdue too...
>>47982164The sheer jealousy in this thread is incredible in addition to the fuddlore around open bolt guns. The guy flies around the world finger fucking the rarest guns in existence for a job so of course they're jealous.
>>47977292>not an expert in development>literally all the guy does is research developmentpick one
>>47977406>the Thompson manual is also the manual for a type 94
>>47982118>the channel is called “Forgotten Weapons” therefore you cannot do cool and popular guns commonly requested because they are rememberedyou have diagnosable autism
>>47977219>dunning-kruger effectThis term has been making the rounds with onions bois lately.
>>47974835He's probably autistic just look at how cringy his beard is. You gotta accept people for what they are. Karl makes good internet content but he is not 100% our guy, simple as.
>>47982227mechanical engineering technology, it's a tech degree
>>47977671Who 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? Retard
