Default For once I think I'll post my own

I always get here late but I'm kinda proud of the new work so for once I'm posting myself.

Now, many of you saw the test video with Mae... and some were kinda creepy about it.

But here is Episode 1 and Episode 2. We're working with The Great War, which is why the tight focus on WWI and going by country.

The video is quite good. I hope that you will continue to refine this, you aren't much short of broadcast quality in terms of the entertainment value. It is rare that I take a chance on a link like that and come back glad that I did afterward. Calgunners, if you are a C&R enthusiast/historian, you should probably have a look. It's pretty cool.

You can't post an attractive young lady in the peak of her childbearing years more-than-competently shooting a really cool rifle and not expect a reaction, nay?

Please keep up the good work.

Already watched the video on the Berthier, I sub'ed after the first shooting video was shared here and reading the were practice for upcoming episodes. I see your channel becoming a new favorite for classic firearms like the Forgotten Weapons channel. Similar in the sense you talk about the older guns, but different in the style of delivery and focus.

I don't have much constructive critique to offer. I am enjoying the videos so far and feel like I'm learning as well.

I'll need to check The Great War channel, sounds like an interesting history oriented one.

Well I subbed. I like the focus on history while forgotten weapons (which I love) is more of a focus on technical details.

Its like watching a guy with a beard read shotgun news to me.

The addition of time-period pictures and your drawings are absolutely outstanding.

Nice work, Othais!

Just ignore and delete all inappropriate comments -

Cretins hide behind anonymity saying things on-line they wouldn't think of saying in person -
You can't let it affect your creative-flow -

The videos are very interesting to watch and well made -

Thank you for making them.

Thanks gang, the compliments really mean a lot. We're trying hard to deliver and keep everyone happy, which might be impossible but it's worth an attempt.

While I do agree that Mae is cute, she's a strong selection for both availability and being the average height of a WWI-WWII soldier which puts the guns into a better sense of scale.

Plus she's not as heavily biased on the history side, having a more cursory familiarity. She tends to just enjoy shooting.

Thanks much for your excellent work. In Episode 1 I particularly liked going to the moving schematic, showing the interaction of parts, while the shooter was working the action. Also, your narrative putting the gun in its place in history, including the politics of its adoption, is most interesting. And I concur with Pitfighter concerning the inappropriate comments about Mae, truly unfortunate and frankly unacceptable. Please keep up the good work.

I think people are accustomed to "token" female appearances in gun shows these days. I'm sure Mae will reverse some of that since she actually cares.

In the meantime: Episode 003 is up.

Also should I keep linking these in this thread or will it get bothersome?

Keep doing it.

Excellent quality, what camera are you using? External mics I assume?

I'm using some DSLR's and I actually use a series of mics to capture the gun shots.

So you ask for money in your last episode.
How do we send you money? That was not made clear.

Watched episode 3 and lived it BTW.

On edit, looks like the only thing available is a recurring monthly, I would like to kick you some cash, but I really don't want to sign up for a monthly charge.

Any other options?

Thanks for the financial support.

I included a 1 dollar option so it could be $12 a year and still give patrons access to the animation vids and announcements.

Otherwise you can straight send to Prints@Candrsenal.com

Or just get yourself a print from the site.

I am still kinda weirdly embarrassed about fund raising but unlike the site I can't afford to keep this up from my own money. My jeep broke down week one of filming and I have poured so much time/cash in it is still sitting. I just ride my motorcycle now.

I loved your sense of humor of this one !

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3m_2E...e_gdata_player

You saved it and in fact made me laugh !

Fellow Calgunners !!! if you need a laugh check out that video BUT read the description first before you play it.

Yes, Mae is obviously pretty but it's her beautiful smile that really makes you think that she's enjoying herself ( even though I'm sure it may be slightly nerve wracking or tedious doing the same shots again and again to get the video just right ).

please keep doing what you're doing and yes, you should definitely keep posting links.
we have many new people come and go & the links that don't get bumped to the top often are soon forgotten.

So I canceled Angies List to contribute to something I'm getting more enjoyment from

Good luck, hope my contribution helps you guys continue to make these

It's a little surprising that nobody has dies to reload ammo for those historic guns, but I know that's probably an obscure cartridge

Thanks, every dollar really does mean a lot.

I know we can't be the 'perfetct' show but we're going to try our best to give these pieces of history the respect they deserve. I especially want to treat them well enough on the show to give the impression of just how valuable and beautiful they are.

As far as ammo goes, it kinda depends. Usually if we can find *any* ammo for sale it's cheaper than dies + brass + bullets in the SHORT TERM because at under 100 rounds you usually aren't ahead.

Some things (like the Reichsrevolver) we did go with dies because of the compatibility with .44 Russian.

That makes complete sense. As someone who reloads a couple calibers but has guns for more, my buy decision usually depends on my frequency of shooting that caliber and/or the desire to get better accuracy.

Since you are in or around that museum and shooting club, I figured maybe one of them or their friends would lend you the dies. Still, I gather from the video this is an uncommon round

You're absolutely right though, buying dies, brass, bullets, etc for a single video does not make sense.

In any case, looking forward to the next one

Sorry for the double post but Handgun Radio released our interview about some of the pistols from the project.

I thought some of you guys might like something to fall asleep to:

Looks like a larger version of an "Astra 1911" pocket pistol in 7.65mm. I never realized I was in fact holding a Browning clone though the resemblance is uncanny.

Great new episode. You guys seem to also be getting more comfortable in front of the camera too, for whatever that is worth

Hope you guys can get the support to keep making these. Maybe you can cross post on full30 since it's still a smaller gun focused video site. Might create some more interest and get viewers.

Those are in the same family of simplified "Eibar Type" pistols.

I dropped them a note on episode 001 but never heard back sadly.

Wow. I enjoyed your great efforts. I love learning, you love teaching in a great way. This is a must see for C&R collectors if they want to know about the weapons they are collecting. Keep up the great work. This is also a must see for kids and adults that don't know history.

We're finally moving away from France (for now, don't worry, still plenty of French guns left) and into Germany!

Great video. The revolver seems like it's not user friendly, has bad ergos, and a silly safety. As you said, it looks very durable and could probably function effectively as a club

Your link in the comments to the Steyr Hahn is great. Hilarious, unfortunately at your expense

Looking forward to the next episodes. Also been catching up on the Great War series. It's fantastic
