Tight ass shorts are cutting the blood circulation to your balls bro.

Author TheMotomofo (1 month)
Technically what you have is not an AR-15. The AR-15 was the original
model manufactured by Armalite. They have other "ARs" that are completely
different. Colt now owns all rights to the "AR-15." So, if it is not
manufactured by Armalite (an original) or Colt, it is technically not an
AR-15. The AR-15 is based on the 7.62 mm AR-10, designed by Fairchild
ArmaLite Corporation. The AR-15 was developed as a lighter, 5.56 mm version
of the AR-10. The "AR" in all AR pattern rifles stands for Armalite, and
can be found on many of the company's firearms: AR-5 a .22 caliber rifle,
the AR-7, another .22 caliber, the AR-17 shotgun, in addition to the AR-10
semi-automatic rifle.

ArmaLite sold its rights to the AR-10 and AR-15 to Colt in 1959. The
trademark "AR15" or "AR-15" is registered to Colt Industries, which
maintains that the term should only be used to refer to their products.
Other AR-15 manufacturers make AR-15 clones marketed under separate
designations, although colloquially these are sometimes referred to by the
term AR-15.

Saying one of the many clones is an AR-15 "style" or "type" would be
acceptable. Just because everyone prefers to simply call something a
particular name does not mean that all of those people are not ignorant.

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.

Author kerneldeadpixel (10 days)
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!

operate the rifle with some snap caps just to tie it all together. 9/10

Author gzcwnk (2 months)
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.

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.

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! 

Author Irietree007 (8 months)

Author noelsingletary (4 months)
DuncanMeter needs to remove this video from Youtube because he has no idea
what he's talking about. Too many errors in the video and that could be
very dangerous for a new AR15 owner.

Author pjamese3 (7 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 (8 months)
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.

Author Caines Rage (8 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..

Thanks for the Video, Very simple and informative for beginners. And for
all of your guys and girls that think your the expert i have heard many
experts refer to items both clips and magazines even though there is a
difference but we get the point...OK?

DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDE!!! Clip???? Fucking really????? WOW. looks
like you are the one who needs to watch YouTube videos for beginners.

Author L.D. hartman (6 months)
Thank you so much.This video was explained and simplified so we could
understand everything. I appreciate that cause when u try to ask others
they make u look like an idiot.I learned a lot and was able to go out and
shoot my ar with ease.
thank you again

Author javier vasquez (6 months)
Ok, Rifle expert it's not a "Clip" its a Magazine!!!!

Author godlyk3 (9 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.

WARNING: there is incorrect information in this video!

Author James Ode (5 months)
Thx for the information but I was wondering is the at 15 hard to handle 

Author Tom Johnston (8 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.

Author mbh8280 (9 months)
"clip" "Magazine holder" ??? If you're going to teach "new" people about
firearms, you shouldn't be new to them yourself. delete this and start over
