Gunspace: A Social Media App for Gun Owners

Recently Made live on the  Google Play Store as well as iTunes is the new social media app Gunspace. Now you might be wondering if there’s a need for such a thing, but I can tell you it’s pretty annoying to be on Facebook timeout for posting images of the buck you spent all morning trying to bag. Or being reported because you put up a video of a VW Microbus filled with Tannerite being turned into a crater by a single .22LR round (Dear sweet Lord don’t attempt this!). Gunspace promises to connect you with like-minded individuals who just want to show off their gats, shooting trophies and vids, or hunting results. The app itself is pretty straightforward and includes the ability to link your TikTok, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube accounts so you can easily share across platforms to reach a larger audience.

NSSF Resource: Using Social Media Effectively In Times Of Crisis

As much as I would like to relocate all social media to the burning dumpster fire part of the internet and close the door, for businesses it can be their main channel of communication with potential customers. Unwelcome guests that we are, our gun-loving thoughts, ideas and passions need to be on mainstream social media channels if we want to reach potential enthusiasts and remind the rest of the world that guns are tools; we are not. For a more succinct explanation, check out our interview with Chuck Rossi at Open Source Defense.

Owning Firearms And Navigating Social Media – Open Source Defense

Here’s an ironic twist for you: as someone who publishes content for the largest firearms news blog in the world, there are many days that I wish all social media would simply die in a fiery car crash.The endless bickering, the obsession with minutiae, rampant tribalism and all those selfie/foodie pics are like a bad case of herpes – persistently annoying. However, as a human, I recognize that social media is now how we actually interact with one another in the shadow of a new decade. Longing for the days of the Elks Club, poker night or any other type of in-person socializing will get us nowhere. Being visible online allows us to share our passions with millions of people around the world. And that is a powerful tool.

How Social Media is Hurting Young Shooters

Social media today is a strange beast. It brings everyone together especially the 2A community and is a massive learning tool when used correctly. In the last few years, there have been social media “celebrities” who try to shoot as fast as possible. These people don’t show targets or how they did but want to show how quickly they can draw their handgun from concealment and shoot. Whether this is for video views or self-confidence. I don’t think it’s a positive trend on the gun community and can turn downright dangerous if people who are untrained try to reenact the videos they watch online.

Love In The Time Of Instagram – Guns, Gear And Training

Here we all sit, with instant access to the highest volume of information in human history. In what used to take a physical trip to the library, photocopying references and reviewing microfiche records, almost everyone can “research” a topic at length using a mobile device. Not only that, we are bombarded with information we didn’t necessarily request – from advertising on blogs (TFB of course is included) to suggested pages on social media sites like Instagram and Facebook.
