GREAT Video Showcases PRS Finale in Australia

PRS NRL Vortex Precision Rifle Series Tactical Australia Victoria Aussie

PRS and NRL fans — and really anyone interested in “move and shoot” type competitions — should definitely watch this video. It’s excellent. No hype folks — this Editor has watched dozens of PRS/tactical videos and this is one of the best filmed and edited. You get a real feel for the competition — the challenges, the gun-handling, the hardware, and, of course, the camaraderie.

What’s HOT from SHOT — Handgun Video Showcase

SHOT Show 2019 pistol Handgun ccw subcompact 1911 handgun

When covering SHOT Show 2019 our reporters focused primarily on rifles, optics, and reloading equipment, because this website is dedicated to rifle accuracy. However we know many of our readers are interested in pistols and revolvers, and we bet the majority of our Forum members own handguns. This Editor used to compete in IDPA and other pistol disciplines and I still love my semi-autos and wheelguns.

For you pistoleros, here are five videos covering some of the best new handgun options for 2019. The first video in the list covers multiple handguns — four recommended 1911-type pistols. Enjoy.

After YouTube Censors Gun Videos — GetZone.com Offers Hosting

GetZone Getzone.com video gun firearms hunting hosting youtube channel Community Guidelines

YouTube Strikes Again — More Censorship, More Channel Freezes without Good Cause
YouTube is a “hostile environment” for firearms and the shooting sports. Last week, YouTube announced that, going forward, all strikes against videos that violate Community Guidelines will now carry the same punishment: a temporary ban from YouTube activity, with the length of time increasing with the strikes.

That’s right — a single “violation”, which might be triggered by an exaggerated or malicious complaint by anti-gunners, can result in a complete channel shut-down for a period.

Previously, YouTube had a “three strikes and you’re out” policy, but each strike had a different penalty. The first strike had resulted in a 90-day live-streaming freeze, while the second would result in a two-week freeze on video uploads, via techcrunch.com. In addition, YouTube has demonetized many gun-related channels, cutting off advertising revenues.

Responding to the YouTube censorship and often unjustified shut-downs of shooting-centric channels, GetZone.com is now offering a viable option for gun/hunting/reloading video producers. GetZone, a modern outdoor-focused digital platform, “welcomes gun-related YouTube channels that promote legal firearms, demonstration of their use, and lawful sales”.

GetZone.com Welcomes Gun and Hunting Video Producers
GetZone.com stated: “As attacks on our 2nd Amendment continue, it is more important than ever for the outdoor industry to have a trusted, dedicated video platform like GetZone.com. If you’re a banned YouTuber, or you know someone who is, [contact us] to get your videos hosted on GetZone.com. While YouTube continues to shut down gun-related content, there is a tremendous amount of quality firearms, training, and hunting information that producers need to distribute and viewers need to see.”

In addition to video content, GetZone.com offers discussion (comment) functionality moderated by users, thus providing the firearms community a reliable place to communicate.
