    Please add Practically Tactical to your list.

    Round table discussions with some of the best in the industry, focused on mindset and critical thinking for concealed carry. Some excellent information from some "regular" dudes.

    John Lovell, Active Self Protection (great one, all of his content is real-world video from surveillance cameras), GP Outdoors (mostly tractor stuff), Parker Fawbush, Homesteadonomics, and MrGunsnGear. There's probably some others, but those are the primary ones I can think of offhand.

    Armed and steady is a pretty good channel. Solid dude, no bs. Fairly new. Maybe a year. Of course Hicock 45 and IV 8888 because I love watching soda and produce explode

    Hickok45, but the previous posters have given me a few other ones to check out. John Lovell seems to be popular.

    I probably watch more Hikok45 than anything else.
    I watch all sorts of stuff on YouTube.
    I've learned a lot over the years at that place. Some of it I could have done without.
    I really like the ballistic gels tests that a few of the guys do.
    I spend way too much time there.

    Been watching a lot of Paul Harrell lately. I like his no nonsense approach and his testing.

    I'm a Forgotten Weapons channel junkie. Love learning about the mechanics and history of a wide range of guns.
    If you appreciate the 1911 this is almost mandatory;


    I really liked Carnik-Con, not all of it was comedy gold but some funny stuff;

    Sadly they stopped making videos.

    Small Arms Solutions....and some others. Yankee Marshall visited just to leave an abusive comment. Guy did a major messup calling Hickok 45 incompetent with the Colt Python so the gloves are off with that idiot.

    @Danzig seeing as you like the history, check out small arms solutions. Chris is a veritable encyclopedia of firearms. Well qualified to preach. I was nodding frequently during his talk on Colt, having worked for the corp. about 20 yearsbefore him, but seeing nothing had changed.

    Hickok45, Paul Harrel, Clay Martin's 'Off the Reservation' to which after much thought and research on other ARs, I bought my Springfield SAINT 'edge' after his video review(He also bought the one he tested as I seen him use it in later videos). I got the last one available at the time from GrabaGun for $1,149.00

    Chris knows quite a bit being in the industry. I’ve seen a few of his vids.
    I’d say Forgotten Weapons is the gun channel I watch the most.
