The End of YouTube Gun Channels!

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

So YouTube is making life very difficult for shooting and gun related channels at the moment. They are black listing the videos and making them difficult to find, you can only find them if you have restricted mode turned off. Furthermore some videos are being demonetised which means no ad revenue, this causes a massive problem for people who rely on YouTube for income to support them. This might mean that creators we all know and love may stop making content!

This month on POI Magazine we have seen a lot of caliber review articles, these articles come from experienced shooters who have slightly different philosophies of use for them, but all give you an idea of how capable they are. Brian Sowerby who works as a professional pest controller gives his thoughts on the 22 Hornet caliber, predator hunter Kevin Beckner gives his thoughts on the 17 Remington Fireball and long range varminting extraordinaire Si Snipe from YouTube gives us his thoughts on the Fireball’s brother, the 17 Remington.

I'd like to start by welcoming all our members, I don't think I have gotten around to doing that yet. It's great to bring shooters together from all over the world to a common place where we can share out stories and keep people updated on our individual progress on our individual shooting journeys. Point of Impact Social is that place and we now have some sales groups to give buyers and sellers a place to communicate and arrange for the sale/purchase of items in accordance with the two parties' respective laws. So come check it out and bring your friends!

 

This edition of the news letter is sponsored by Case Prep Services, a UK based company who sell reloading equipment and provide case prep services, such as cleaning, sizing, trimming etc. They have kindly donated a Lee 50th Anniversary Reloading Kit as a competition prize for 1st place, as well as a free voucher code for a service on 100 brass cases for the second place winner. The competition is simple to enter and doesn't take long at all, you just have to post a picture in POI Reloading Room on POI Social http://www.point-of-impact.net/index.php/groups/viewgroup/8-poi-reloading-room.html and add the caption 'Case Prep Services Comp', good luck guys and click the banner below for Case Prep Services if you are interested in reloading equipment and case prep services, they have some great offers on at the moment.

What's new on POI? Well, we have a number of new articles including my article for my fellow beginner reloaders who might be interested to see how I do things. The article is just a walk through of what products I have been using and how I do it, I absolutely do not claim to be an expert; the aim of the article is to make reloading seem less complicated and intimidating to new and prospective reloaders.

 

Declan Mouland, avid foxer and deer stalker gives you a detailed review of the Swarovski Z6 optic including how it performs in the field, those of you of a more modest budget in scopes may with to take a look at MRAD Paul's review of the Falcon Optics M14, there will be a lt more scope reviews coming in 2016, we have no affiliation with the manufacturers, so they are genuine reviews of the kit that people own.

 

Connor Cross, air gun hunter and game cooking enthusiast has written several pieces including the very popular 'The Bare Necessities of Stalking Rabbits with Air Rifles' and 'Air Rifle Hunter's Kit Bag Basics', Connor's articles are aimed at those just getting in to pest control using air rifles.

 

Jonny Ellsmore writes about his beloved CZ 452 and 455 rimfires and why they are such excellent value for money. This article is aimed at anyone in the market for a new bolt action rimfire or someone looking to buy their first rimfire. The positives and negatives are outlined along with the customisation options available to CZ shooters.

 

Coming soon: Tikka T3 Lite .243 Review, NiteSite Eagle Review, Long Range Rimfire Hunting, Air Rifle Ballistics for Beginners, .22 WMR, a Calibre Review and The Ultimate Target Gong.

The social network aspect of Point of Impact is now LIVE, we need you guys to please encourage your friends to sign up and get involved. It allows for more functionality than Facebook does, facilitates discussion much better and it is customizable to our audience. We can act on your feedback to develop it further, but bear with us initially as we are inevitably going to experience teething problems. We will not charge you for our e-magazine or discussion services, but we simply ask that you share the website as much as you can please.

The Point of Impact website launched in December 2015 officially and we have amassed a few great articles for the members to read and enjoy. We have an article from eminent vermin sniper Mark Ripley who uses his mastery of ballistics in partnership with his custom .260 Remington to destroy varmints out to a thousand yards! The article One Yard at a Time is aimed at the shooter who is looking to venture in to the world of long range shooting and serves as an introduction, Mark will follow up this with more in depth pieces on each of the elements.

Other articles include:

Ty Wilson’s Ode to a 12 Gauge, a salute to the famous 12 gauge shotgun putting forward an excellent argument for why it is the most versatile firearm you can own.

MRAD Paul’s Falcon M14 review, Paul does an in depth review of a mid-range optic that he champions as being the ultimate in value for money for the distance shooter.

Pat Burrell has written an excellent piece called A Brief History of the .22 Rimfire Cartridge. Pat gives you a quick look in to where the humble .22 Long Rifle and its sister cartridges came from.

Member Shane Epperson has written us an excellent account of a long range elk hunting excursion called Long Range Elk. This is a gripping account of what sounds like a rather epic hunt, with the shot being taken at 890 yards in the Idaho wilderness.

Scottish Highland game keeper and founder of Deer Stalkers International Jamie Sawyer has contributed an excellent article about taking a last day of the season red deer cull stag. Jamie takes you to the Highlands of Scotland and really makes you feel like you are there beside him on hunt.

For those of you who like a bit of DIY, we have 2 articles, one from Isaac Carlson who takes a $50 beaten up Springfield .22 and gives it a new lease of life and the other from Barrie Baynham who has made himself a beautiful custom stock for his Savage 93r Varmint. Both are great pieces of work with some great tips and advice for the budding gunsmith.

If you are a fan of cooking what you shoot, there’s a great recipe from me on a simple game chilli. I used Wiltshire roe venison, but this recipe could easily be adapted to feature virtually any game meat. If youu have any questions, leave them in the comments on the article.

There’s a number of review articles amassing on there which may be of interest to you including my review of the Kalibrgun Cricket, it’s started shooting even better since I’ve put a thousand or so pellets through it. There’s my review of the T20 lamping/spotlighting torch and the magnificent Bushnell Fusion 1 Mile ARC binoculars Edgar Brother sent me to check out.

All in all, a good start to the website, and we now have over 500 people signed up. Please recommend the website to your friends if you like what we are doing and share links on social media to articles you think should be enjoyed by more people. Thank you for the support from all our members on the website and on Facebook, we couldn’t do anything without your help and there would be nobody to do all this for. It is our mission to make sure you receive the best experience possible, our ability to provide that depends on getting more users.
