Default Any TNP folks here?

Any TNP backers in the area? I’m talking serious fans who rock the patches, support on Patreon.

When you absolutely positively need a 35 minute review on a product that could be covered in 5 minutes by anyone else.

TNP!

I like TNP some of the time. Unlike most gun reviewers he’ll tell you if a gun is a failure. Hitchcock 45 is fun. He like every gun he pick ups and spends most of the time shooting his range up. Scooch is pretty good. The Yankee Marshall drives me nuts. Colloin Noir is pretty funny. I miss FPS Russian.

Yes, those are fun reviewers too; definitely more promotional.

I️ always assumed I️ was in a small minority of true TNP fans but couldn’t help throwing out the ask to find out.

(Sometimes I️ rock a TNP hat around town to see if I️ get a nod from a knowing ally but it’s yet to happen.) Got curious whether there are any true fans out there. So far it looks like no die hards in Sac.

Present, Don't agree with everything he says, but for the most part he is on point.

I have the 1st gen t-shirts (dangerous things are good), all the others, I never liked

Nice. I️ have the new hat and some owl patches. I️ like the reviews but overall my favorite thing has always been the life philosophy videos and the positive message.

Nope. TNP is a gasbag that loves to hear his own voice. He could be good if he’d stick to repeating himself only say... 3 times on any given point, rather than 12.

I find some of his videos entertaining. The old joke is that TNP is where you go when you want a two hour review about a knife. Like most, I skip through parts of them. Compared to some of the poseurs on YT, he has a solid legitimate military background which gives a lot of credibility as far as I am concerned. It is nice to see an operator that has no combat beard or full sleeved tats.

I am pretty certain he was an AF Pilot. I know as a pilot you have to do special trainings like SERE, but that doesn't make him an operator. That being said, he does have a good military mindset.

He is pretty honest and more so on how things work rather than the name attached to them. With that said I have to skip through 99.9% of the vids to get to on topic points.

Paul Harrell: serious content, testing, no BS, surprisingly funny and likable, most of his videos are brief. The anti-James Yeager. The first one to check out is Miami Dade shootout. Then watch all the others...

Nutn' is ok if you want absurdly in depth info on a gun you are seriously considering.

Someone posted a link to some Harrell videos on another thread recently. Maybe have been you for all I know. I had never heard of him before, watched a few videos and I really like his format, attitude, and concise material. Seems to be a real world guy and he's completely unconcerned with celebrity/attention.

I have watched quite a few NTP videos and even considered getting a patch, but I just can't do the hour long videos of disjointed discussion, abbreviations that no one but hardcore TNPers know, and the pseudo celebrity attitude he has sometimes.

But, I will say, few channels have remotely the same amount of gear reviewed. I also like that, as far as I know, he provides his honest reviews and has no financial/legal obligation to play up certain brands.

The review's are way too long.... He seems to think alot of himself. I still don't know what his project is? I like mixup 98 and "The gun guy" best. Gun guy is good for a California perspective.

Dynamic Pie Concepts, a now defunct youtube channel that basically made fun of all other tackleberry super high speed 5000 whiz bang kids while having some fun doing it. One of their more well known videos was tricking out a hipoint and making it look...well awesome.
