How do you make an instructional video on something you have no knowledge
on yourself? This video is bad. Magazine not a clip. Magazine well not a
mag holder. This video is bad on so many levels and I feel bad for anyone
who is new and watches this video. And yes, actually you can put the rifle
on safe without a round in the chamber. You should probably take a few
classes yourself, then come home and delete this video and remake it based
on your newfound knowledge.

I'm not sure why you would go through the trouble to make a video like this
and call a magazine a clip. You know gun people are going to freak out.

to-ma-toe / to-ma tow it's a fucking mag ..not a clip... '' close this
little door '' w.t.f. is this dude up stuck in the chamber if it
did not come out of the mag so jam it in further by hitting this ..... look
down the mag holder .. ??? tune in folks for the 20 lbs of crap bolted on

Sorry. But you just made yourself look a little ridiculous. Learn, take
classes, train. Then come back and make a video. Plus, you're giving out
advises like you're a trained professional. That could come back to bite
you in the ass. Especially if someone says I learned it from this dude on

Author Sic Semper Gumby (7 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 stanfordcoffee (11 months)
It's no wonder you disabled the ratings. Full of errors.

Author Joshua Penrod (26 days)
Also not always does the round come out when you pull the the bolt carrier
back there could be an unfortunate bullet hiding. you always look into the
chamber after you are done to make sure there isnt a round in it . NOTE'
fanger straight and off the trigger no matter what thats your best safty.

Author ar556nato (1 month)
Say what? You can only put the safety on if there is a round in the chamber
and a magazine in the magazine "holder"? What's a magazine holder? This is
complete misinformation. The only condition that needs to be present to
engage the safety is to pull the charging handle back which cocks the
hammer. There needs to be no magazine in the MAGAZINE WELL and there
doesn't need to be a round in the chamber. Only the hammer needs to be
cocked. I stopped the video at this point. It's nonsense. I don't want to
be rude, but this video is full of incorrect information.

I had to stop watching this video because it is loaded with errors and poor
terminology indicating that you must be new to the AR-15 and you certainly
shouldn't be instructing other beginners. When it comes to weapons, you
should know what you are talking about before explaining it to others.

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 (2 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!

Author pjamese3 (9 months)
Try learning what you are talking about before you make an instructional
video. This video is full of errors. There's no need to list them all
because the good people of YouTube have already done so below. Apparently,
you've never been in the Armed services. If you were, there's no way you'd
make all these errors...especially the first one: Can't put the rifle on
safe without a magazine or a round in the chamber? Really?!!

Author Tom Johnston (10 months)
There's an error in your video. You can put an AR-15 on safety without a
round in the chamber as you say. You can even put it on safety without a
magazine in the rifle. The rifle can be put on safety anytime it is cocked
whether or not there is a round in the chamber or even whether or not there
is even a magazine inserted. I just thought I'd mention this because this
video is for beginners and misinformation can be dangerous.

I think he is trolling, even optic sights is facing wrong way :-D

Author godlyk3 (11 months)
First off magazine not clip... there is a difference. Also, an M-4, AR-15,
and M-16 are all different. Yes they are all variations of the same rifle
family but fundamentally they are different weapons with different
purposes. Admittedly I did stop watching at 2:14 so if you correct
yourself sorry and disregard.

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.

Might I suggest that before you make an "instructional video", you have at
least a basic knowledge of what the hell you are talking about. We don't
need crap like this on the internet. I always wonder what the
"motivation" is for all these internet experts that jump through their ass
to make an instructional video to show others how to do something. Please
take this video down. You are embarrassing yourself!

May I also suggest you erase the word "clip" from your vocabulary. Go find
out the difference between a "clip" and a "magazine".
