    I saw a comment about Nutnfancy on Youtube earlier and it sparked some interest in you guys' opinions...so what is it?

    Is he an over zealous mall ninja? or is he a semi competent reviewer of gear?

    My opinion: I think nutnfancy is pretty on the spot. He isnt too biased in his gear reviews and he seems to really come at it from a realistic perspective. His Philosophy of Use videos are pretty insightful.

    I dont see him too much as a mall ninja, partially because he is a pilot in the Air Force, and though military service certainly does not mean you are the real deal, he certainly has to realize that the equipment he carries he one day may have to use.

    I love his point of view regarding the carriage of firearms and the responsibilities associated with it.

    Only qualm?? He is LONG WINDED! When you start up a video, skip the first 15 minutes. seriously.

    Not saying that he doesn't have decent reviews of gear, but I am skeptical of what he says as his background.

    I look at it this way. Despite whether I like or dislike him, the fact is he knows more than I do and has more experience. I will watch, listen and learn from anyone with more knowledge than myself.

    you mean as far as his military background? He's shown plenty of pics/videos of him with/around/flying aircraft....

    I'm not sure quite what you mean...what exactly has he said that is incorrect?

    Oh, sorry I didnt look before...

    I certainly hope the thread doesnt end up that way. I hope we can all be civil here. I didnt know nutnfancy was such an object of malcontent and hatred.

    he may go now a bit long and you can skip the first 15 min, but he covers everything and i think he breaks it down into very understandable terms if your new to the gun world.

    Don't worry about not searching that thread was burred back a few pages in the search. I just remembered the malcontent that was had for him back then.

    He's an enthusiast. He's not a trainer. I rarely agree with him, HOWEVER, I like watching the videos because I get to see the guns I want for 40 minutes. He's just a really excited gun nerd.

    I think he knows his stuff, but he's too much of a fanboy to be an objective reviewer.

    Two of many examples is when the was showing that the glock has a fully supported chamber. He showed the barrel with a round in it but he never showed the area where it's unsupported, he showed the top of the barrel and the sides. Either he's an idiot or he was deliberately hiding the facts. Also him saying the the XD is just a copy of the Glock tells me he doesn't know jack about the internal workings of either gun.

    ENTER THE TRUTH: The guy knows a lot about a lot of stuff but he is a little "high" on himself. His background is legit. I can't tell you how I know so you have to take my word for it, which doesn't mean much on the internet.

    He is a polarizing figure due to his tone, attitude, and frankly his dweebiness. With that being said he serves his country and offers good reviews on gear, guns, and even a little philosophy. Just like ANY human he isn't right all of the time. I know a little about guns, preparedness, and "tacticality" being that I work in a related industry and am a USMC Sergeant with four tours under my belt. I refer to nutn's opinion whenever I am looking buy something gear or gun related. I don't always agree with his perspective and frankly he gets on my nerves but he's worth listening to more often than not.

    The only time he annoy's me is when he compare's everything to Glock. He's a fanboy at heart. Honestly, when it comes to gun reviews I refer to Hickok45. When he did his review on Glock and XD he boiled it down to it's all personal preference on the 2. Nutn seems like a cool guy to hang out with, but he does talk a lot and seems a bit high on himself as well. I really lost a lot of respect for him when he was bashing the Knoxx stock for shotguns. He reviewed an older, well worn version, not a new out of the box. He fails to see it DOES work, and like all adjustable stocks you need to get used to it. Even my 110lb sister can handle my 12 gauge easily with that stock.

    In my opinion, Glock fan boy.

    Love it! :mrgreen:

    I watch his vids every now and then. One of the things that bugs me most is that he LOVES to hear himself talk. What could be said in just a few minutes, he takes next to forever to babble it out. And his incessant comparisons to his damned Glock is a real annoyance. Yeah, okay, he can buy a friggin 30-round mag for his precious Glock, who CARES?!?! If you need that much firepower, you're going to need something bigger than the Glock. And if a reviewed gun has one or two rounds less in capacity, again, who friggin cares?! Why he feels it is inferior is beyond me. Any 9mm with at least 15 round capacity is still great. I don't mind comparisons, it just feels he is too obsessed with his Glocks to give a truly fair review.

    I will say this though, he was pretty good with his Ruger SR-9 reviews. In the end, he ended up really liking the thing and giving it good praise.
