    My favorite OCD gun blogger strikes again.

    Good stuff.

      thats all you need right there.

    • Y-man

      YEAH! Like my Pistol grip though!

  • echelon

    The next time I hear someone complain about a NutnFancy review I’ll point them to this guy…

    If you can make an informed buying decision on something as important as a firearm in less than one minute…good for you…

    I guess?!?

    • Zachary marrs

      Nutn spends 30 of his 40 minute reviews farting around the desert tactically engaging paper silhouettes, talking about the acronym P.O.U. or gushing over how great coyote tan is. Of those 10 minutes he is talking about the gun, 5 of those minutes is back story.

      What could nutn say that vuurwapen can’t?

      • echelon

        To each his own I guess.

        Some of us like to see the person using the weapon in ways other than just sitting at a static range and plinking a few rounds at a target and going -this thing is a tack driver. Or this thing is minute of bad guy.

        I’m not a Nutn fanboy by any means but I will personally say that I find his in depth reviews and fully explained opinions to be much more helpful that a lot of the other firearms channels out on the tube. Do I agree with everything he says? No. Do I personally like all the same guns he does or actually buy anything he recommends? Not necessarily.

        And if you don’t like his personality then there’s nothing that can be done about that I suppose.

        I just don’t see the wisdom or use of 5 minute or less gun review videos. It seems to me that all they’re good for is the situation where a person reads the marketing material, listens to what the LGS owner tells him, then goes and watches this fast food review and gets his final confirmation. Not my ideal way to go about purchasing a tool that may be used in defense of my life or someone elses at some point.

        But again…that’s just me! If this video or others like it are helpful to you then so be it.

        • Zachary marrs

          Its just the issue of length, for the hell of it, I once edited one of his reviews (it was the 10/22 takedown , iirc) down to 5 minutes, while retaining all relevant info. He needs to learn the art of narration, while im ok woth the shooting segments, he could lay info over it.

          I mean, c’mon, don’t take out 6 minutes to tell us about your favorite moral patch- people looking for that info won’t be watching a review of a m1 carbine. Nor will a person looking for a m1 carbine review be looking for that moral patch!

          If im looking for info on the 10/22td (sorry for bringing this gun up so much, but I love it) as a survival rifle, I dont give a damn about how awesome the dura coat is

          • Drapetomanius

            I call bullshit. Post a link.

            I watch NutnFancy on a second monitor while I work, so the length doesn’t bother me one bit. It’s like listening to talk radio.

          • Zachary marrs

            Have you heard of copyright laws?
            Congrats, you can watch his vids while you work, but I cant.

          • echelon

            That’s the beauty of opinions and having freedom of association.

            You can not watch him because you find him annoying, put up with his quirks and mine his reviews for whatever wealth you can glean, or find them amazing and cling to every word. Or land somewhere inbetween.

            I wasn’t trying to necessarily highlight Nutn in particular I just thought it was funny that a lot of people beyotch about the length of his reviews and this guy is like the anti-nutn he goes for the speed run. LOL

          • Zachary marrs

            I do watch him, sometimes

          • echelon

            It’s not weird…it like I said, most people, when deciding to make an important purchase, typically have their mind made up or are leaning heavily in one direction to begin with. They sometimes seek out reviews and opinions that line up with theirs to gain approval or validation. Or they do it after the fact. They buy something and then maybe feel guilty or they aren’t sure they made the right choice. So they seek out validation and reassurance. I don’t know that there’s a right or wrong to that per se, but there are dangers in it if we just willy nilly go oh yeah those guys agree with me so it’s good.

            I’m not saying you do that BTW, just pointing out that I know people like that…

          • Zachary marrs

            I just try to find objective thoughts on my stuff. I like seeing other people’s opinions.

          • echelon

            Except that I don’t think any “review” or opinion can be truly objective. Everyone brings some sort of personal bias into the equation…

            And I’m fine with that so long as it’s made plain and not obfuscated or passed off as objective. 🙂

          • Zachary marrs

            Hence the “try” 😉

        • Y-man

          In my country where I pay equivalent about $140 a month for “meh” internet, I CANNOT watch NutnFancy… I just don’t have that time or bandwidth. In terms of reviews, now, Hickok45, I watch, IraqVeteran8888 – yes! MAC – yes. Colion Noir: yes.
          i have never watched a NutnFancy video to the end.
          But like you said though: to every one his own…

          • echelon

            Everything in life is always Time vs. Money! 🙂

    • Kosme

      The problem with nutnfancy is not the length of hes videos, it’s that he is a massive douchbag.

      • echelon

        I’m sure every single person who produces videos on YouTube has people who think they are a db…

        Thanks for sharing.

  • BattleshipGrey

    Great ending. I didn’t expect a negative review but it’s refreshing, usually gun reviews are gushing about how great brand “X” is.

  • Fred Johnson

    I gotta see more of the shooting from a motorcycle! How about doing a double jump and hit a target to the side and below?

    Calling Chuck Norris . . .

  • Danny Gonzalez

    If i was actually looking to buy one of these guns, I would not find these reviews helpful at all. Guns (with some exceptions) are not cheap and I would not be comfortable with making a decision based on 15 seconds of information.

    • Georgia RN

      All these negative waves man…Maybe some folks should start their own sites.

    • Zachary marrs

      What extra info are you looking for?

  • john huscio

    People still do ankle carry?

  • iHAL

    No content? Time to pull up old content (from somebody else’s firearm blog!)

  • john huscio

    I have the opposite view about the size of m&p compacts from him…. I think guns like the m&p compact and sig p250sc (hopefully the p320sc as well) are the ideal size to carry…..small enough to conceal well, big enough to shoot well and at 12+1 in 9mm, a comfortable amount of firepower with full size mags in reserve…..I find pocket pistols in service calibers a pain in the ass to shoot well and service size guns are fatiguing…

    • MySpin1776

      I totally agree with you John. The M&P9c is the only pistol that I will carry. I have smaller pistols but the magazine capacity and accuracy of the M&P make it an easy choice. Plus, the grip is a perfect fit for my hand.

  • raz-0

    It’s like the anti-nutnfancy

    Why does V-whatever-blog have to be featured on TFB? Cant you guys find your own firearms related topics to write about?
