Hi guys, I'm from the internet and I'm a gun nuts.

I like commenting on this video and show how it full of errors because I
want to look cool and educated on the internet, because I'm a gun fanatic,

Author Sic Semper Gumby (9 months)
The .223/5.56 part isn't a debate; 5.56 produces 20,000PSI more chamber
pressure than .223. One is liable to blow their asses up, so to speak.

And it's not a clip. It's a magazine.

Author Lance Cochrane (2 days)
Note....the chamber designation is what is "stamped on the barrel", not
what the lower says...

Great intro video, perfect for someone who just wants the basics. Maybe
operate the rifle with some snap caps just to tie it all together. 9/10

Author kerneldeadpixel (3 months)
Thanks for the video. Yes, I do agree with others that there were some
errors in your video but as someone who knows nothing about ARs, it was
informational for a barebones beginner. I at least know how to handle one
and operate it. That's what I was looking for as a starting point and I
have yet to see any other video out there that assumes you know NOTHING. I
didn't expect to know everything about an AR by watching this video. Now, I
can safely handle and operate it when I buy one. Then at that point, I can
do more research to know how to disassemble it, clean it, etc. just like I
did with my other guns. Again, thanks!

Pretty good intro. Points out there issues with different state laws as
well, which could get you in hot water if you get it wrong. About the only
thing I would say always start with is check the firearm is empty.

A well intended video. Thank you. A helpful (I hope) suggestion others
have not mentioned. Please lead by example, do not ever have live
ammunition anywhere in the area (same room) when doing any type of
demonstration or handling of weapon. Use dummy rounds if necessary.
Safety first. If you are preparing to load and make ready, that is

You explained everything I needed to know very concisely. You didn't ramble
like other videos. Thanks I'm subscribing. 

Author Caines Rage (11 months)
Sorry but if its not a Colt, its not a "True" AR-15. Your just getting some
reversed engineered version. Nice looking rifle though..

Author shawnfarand (1 year)
Would also like to start by saying that I think your effort is commendable,
and while fairly new to the weapon, I wanted to point out that the weapon
system can be put into "safe" by cycling the charging system. I don't
believe it must be "loaded" with a mag and one in the chamber. Pull the
charging hammer back, release bolt catch, and move fire select to "safe"
position. without ammo and without a mag in the well.
please let me know if this in incorrect. thank you

Good review dude. I JUST bought a Bushmaster M4 Patrolman, and your video

Author Michael Sakowski (1 year)
Good video! If you are a deer hunter, I would recommend a 30-30 type rifle
- better knockdown, simpler, and safer. But my son might be using mine so I
am borrowing this gun.

Noel.....We called them "CLIPS" since WW-2.... A Magazine is a fixed
