1/2 of the duo I referred to as “the gun store guys” is no longer with us:


My thoughts go out to Eric, the rest of the Iraqveteran888 YouTube guys, and everyone else who was close to Barry.  I got the news this morning at a donut shop, when I checked my email and realized a lot of people had seen a sad announcement on Facebook.  Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” was playing in the background, a fitting song seeing as the gun community lost a valuable asset.  It was impossible not to learn from Barry, and laugh at his jokes / various shenanigans which played out in the videos.  Just the other day I was thinking about how hilarious The Exploits of Sir Arthur HiPoint were, the education and comical complaining found in the gun gripes series of videos, and all the various other educational videos Barry put out such as the lost art of cut shells etc…  Lots of you probably didn’t even know that Barry and Eric even had a TV show on Destination America called Prepper Hillbillies.  Sadly I never got to blog about it before today.

Barry accomplished a lot online over the past few years I’ve have had the pleasure of enjoying and posting his channel’s videos.  The great thing about the internet is that through the vast amount of content he put out, he and his knowledge will live forever.

Rest in Peace Barry.  Thank-you for everything.

Hat tip: Lots of people
