    Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that my channel “Edgun West” has been terminated by Youtube because they stated I violated their “Community Guidelines”.  They feel airguns are dangerous and I can only guess because I taught people how to modify and work on airguns they deemed this “harmful to minors.”  I appealed this decision, but I was unable to get Youtube to change their mind.  I have been banned from emailing them again.  I am not going to let me stop making videos or sharing them.  I started this just having fun, and I was encouraged by Ernest to make DIY videos.  This passion eventually led me to import the gun I love above all others “the EDgun”.  If I stop making videos, it will change my whole business model.  I know my videos are wordy and not polished ( I envy Steve’s and Matt’s professional editing) but I like making no-frills videos.  I hope me going to a new hosting service won’t prevent people from seeing my videos, but I am left without another option.  

    MOD EDIT moved to Video hosting forum

    Wow, what a bunch of crap! I think you do a great job (and dangerous?). Not sure why they have you in their crosshairs; guess you were really starting to make a difference and the anti’s had to put an end to it. Hope this changes eventually!!!!!

    The root problem here is Googles plan for total control of minds and lives!
    Television has been a many year grand experiment in mind control from which 
    Google and others have learned many valuable techniques to assume the role of queen bee in controling the “hive mind” of the population.
    Facistbook is the major player in that control scheme and should be correctly labeled as “AntiSocial media”.

    You can always share them on this forum. Most of your loyal and potential customers are probably members anyway.

    I’m sorry to hear of these troubles with YouTube. It sounds like a load of BS. Thank you for pressing on and finding other avenues to share your videos. I definitely enjoy your production and of course the Edguns.

    Your an intelligent talented air gunner. I enjoyed all your videos. As others said I usually pick them up here first. The prejudice against anything projectile propelling, or hunting, or fishing is out of control. It’s sad the level of control that’s being used to manipulate the ignorant masses.

    So this is not the first “Icon” in the PCP world to have these issues. Ted has stated issues with you tube as well, so my question is to all of us what do WE do to control our destiny?  What’s the options to post informational videos and hunting episodes? Can that occur on this forum with success? Just some questions to ponder.

    This is so unfortunate in regards to youtube making that stand. The lack of knowledge is really what is hurting this great country of ours. Let me make this one statement and one statement only. It’s the way this whole country is heading that is making us weak. Too much tip toeing and political correctness. I have said it and let me be. 

    Brian,

    I love the power tune on the matador and the potential of a magnificent rifle was clearly shown. Keep up the good work and good luck. All the best.

    Hey Brian, sorry to hear this. I know several powder burning centric channels have had the same issues and as such created a new 2a friendly hosting site at full30.com.

    Latest update from Tim at Military Arms Channel was they were going to have a mobile app soon, and that they welcomed all channels that were struggling under censorship from YouTube. 

    I greatly appreciate your video content and your customer service, hope you find a new avenue.

    YT shouldn’t have the right to censor any material related to either our amendments or anything COMPLETELY LEGAL …. I’d imagine with enough money and the right lawyer you could have a field day, then again maybe not idk….either way what a joke YT is. I personally don’t use YT much anymore and this is even more reason to avoid them like the plague they are.

Matt,
    Youtube is similar to any of the Forums out there. It isn’t something owned by the public. Just like any of the forum owners can ban you or remove your posts just because THEY don’t agree with you, Youtube can do the same. They can do it for any reason they want, warranted or not.

    The downside of creating a firearms-centric video site is that it would segregate us away from the general public and limit the ability to expose new people to the sport which would hurt everyone in the long run.

    That is sad, but USA runs to the way which destroy the USSR, I saw it by my own eyes and I see the anology. You, Americans are taken off your freedom to act as free people (after 11.09) and now you are taken you freedom to say as free people. They force you to accept their rules, otherwise they just demolish the person. Look at all those last coming out of Hollywood stars, that is complete BS, who cares what was 20 years ago, if he wanted to f..k somebody, why she watied to say that for 20 years? And so on.

    I stay at youtube, but I started VIMEO chanal as well and now will upload new videos to both chanalls at the same time and will try to copy my old videos from youtube chanal to new one. 

    Here is the frist one:

    I to am so sorry to hear this. I Don’t want to go to you tube for any reason any longer and haven’t for some time.
    I know there are some smart guys working on an alternative. In the mean time all we as a group can do is NOT support businesses, 
    you tube and Google caters to. Change your search engine, Spread the word and make the boycott heard. 
    WE need a lobbist! These snowflakes suck us in then think we need them. Guys don’t post any vids on you tube
    or facebook any more. Find another way!
