    If your friend likes fishing, start him out on the Ted's holdover spearfishing videos. Once he decides he likes Ted, you can lead him slowly to Ted's airgun content… and

     then hopefully the contagion will have taken. :P

    I’ve seen all mentioned and looked they Matt’s but couldn’t find “the one”    He’s a technical guy loves gear but I probably only have one shot at a catch video.  If you could suggest a link that would be best.  Ted might be the right guy.  Maybe the one where he’s picking off leaves on a weed vine…hmmmm

    Take an airgun fishing with you.   We always had one or two on the boat.  Things slow down and you can pop pigeon on old wharfs and docks as well as rats.  Snakes in trees, and an occasional duck in season.   Crows, starlings etc.   Surprising how many targets are out there on the waterways.

    I like Teds videos as they are entertaining, educational and down to basic. Matts and airhunter videos are also great, but the resent ones are mostly about slug shooting. It is a technical marvel in itself, but it is for the moment more a niche, and maybe a litle advanced from a beginner perspective. It might doeas not show the challenge and difference in airgunning compared to .22 rimfire shooting. One of Teds`s videos where he aim a zillion amount of mills holdower, and at the same time a zillion mills adjusting for wind probably make a more "wow" factor.

    These airguns sell themselves.. take him out for a couple of shots and I’m sure he’ll be hooked in no time.

    None at all.  

    Take him to the outdoors he loves and do some shooting.

    I am not a hunter myself, but I also like Aaron Cantrell`s videos. He just have a nice and honest personality. When he and his friend goes pesting, they just seem to have a great time, and he is not afraid to show when he miss, or does not have the perfect shot:)

    Edgun leshey for comic effect, oxwagon dairies is epic.dude shoots game in africa with fx impact and others. Once he wants an airgun show him joes channel cyclops videos. He will point him in the right direction for some optics which are every bit as important as the gun. He also has springer reviews you can trust his word and he isn't selling anything.there are a ton more but that's how id start.

    I think a video is good but nothing compares with trying it and see what a modern airgun can do nowadays.

    When I go to my range, we dont have airgun range, so I’m shooting side by side with a guy that have an AK47 or whatever, at first they laugh when they hear, pew, pew. Later when they see the groups at 100yds (that sometimes is better of what they are doing) they immediately switch and start asking questions. 

    It will be great if your friend can solve a pesting issue, or if you could find a way to show the airgun as a tool, then you can say, hey check this video and you will see how John Doe uses an airgun to deal with that.

    When I looked at airrifles, I had in my mind the old break barrels I used to shoot in Cuba when I was kid, but nowadays, we have truly a marvel on engineering.

    First for me was seeing a chap from across the pond ,dont know his name, shooting rats at night. I had never seen or heard of pcp at the time. I was intrigued by the repetition of shots as compared to what I was used to as a kid. Also the accuracy at which this guy was shooting was impressive.  From there it was Giles,  Steve Scialli, Ted's holdover, BobO, there are so many more to name..All have their own way of conveying the pcp airgun message. I'm hooked at 57, or as it is said here, I've fallen down this rabbit hole. Best to you all.
