        He’s employed by the various channels. Has fuck all to do with them other than presenting.

          He actually owns all the channels. Whenever he makes a channel he goes and hires freelancers to write scripts and do video editing for it. All he does is record himself talking, and upload the finished videos after he gets them back from the editors. He doesn't even pay attention to the content of the scripts he just reads through them and moves on to the next. He's well aware that most of his content is shit but he doesn't care because he's in it for the money. He's not one of those YouTubers making videos out of love for a topic, it's purely a business for him. He's his own boss and is making enough to support his family, that's all he actually cares about.

              Simon Whistler. He has exactly one channel that I'll watch, Brain Blaze,the videos are ostensibly shitty click bait but instead of the boring mechanical presentation of his other channels he'll go off script into tangents about his personal life and there's on going banter between him and that channel's script writers. In some of the tangents he's talked about how he's in it for the money and how most of the scripts for his other channels essentially go in one ear and out the other.

      YouTube algorithm promotes videos with soijack faces in the thumbnails. You unfortunately need to do this to maximize your revenue.

      He doesn't write for any of them, he gets hired to make videos using scripts provided by clients.

      He got his start on YouTube because he did voice work and a channel hired him to be the presenter. But now he runs his own channels and hires the scriptwriters. The quickie YouTube clickbait channels are kinda shit although they sometimes dig up interesting stuff I'd never heard of. The longer format ones like Casual Criminalist has real work put in by the writers. So of them har gone around the world interviewing people.

      The dude never pretends to know what he's talking about. He always talk about how he just reads this stuff and feels stupid. Seems like a bro to grab a drink with.

        If,i were in USA,then yes,i’d buy one.

      In Afgan did you have an Acog on the rifle or an Elcan? Iraq I'm guessing you had a Susat?

        Iraq ‘03 was SUSAT.
        In my truly honest opinion,a very good sighting system,seriously.
        Afghan ‘08 had an ACOG,which was fantastic,but,had been,and was used to SUSAT for the previous 8yrs.
        Saying that,ACOG was very very good.
        No issues,no problems.

        Not him but fired L85A2 and the C8 and can tell you that ergonomics are largely just a case of what you are used to. I found the AR-15 extremely front heavy once all the gucci kit is on the end. L85 was really nice to maneuver.

          Can confirm. The way the l85 is rear heavy makes it easy to handle, and a joy to keep it steady with one hand when you need to use your radio or whatever.

      Agreed,the SA80 was a roughly engineered weapon system.
      SA80A2 was massively improved,in all honesty.
      SA80A3 is even more so improved and upgraded,with a whole host of options.
      Yes,UK Government contracted the upgrades to H&K,but after those upgrades,a vastly improved system,and a great Assault Weapon.

        A AR18 bullpup is not a bad thing, but if you tell your workers that after they've built these new rifles they'll be permanently laid off with no pensions or employment prospects, and then you use the absolute lowest quality materials instead of collaborating with Colt or Steyr to find out what polymer is best and looking at other weapons to figure out ergonomics. It's pure laziness, as indicated by the bullshit the MOD pulled over Sterling.

        Reason for jammed rounds was this; incorrectly loaded magazines,design of the cocking handle was flawed,hence it was redesigned within the A2 by H&K,as was the extractor and bolt.
        Used SA80 in Iraq and Afghan,no issues,at all.

      To be entirely fair, when you look at the development hell that resulted in the A1 it's a minor miracle that pulling the trigger didn't detonate a 'fuck you charge' hidden away in the cheek rest by angry designers/factory staff.
