documentary

This place looks legit AF:

You might know front sight from their relentless internet advertising, or their front man Ignatius Pizza.  I’m assuming some of you may even have trained there.

This isn’t very interesting compared to a lot of other VICE documentaries.

You can check out the Front Sight website, but be warned Ignatius Pizza starts talking as soon as the page loads. *eye roll* internet newbs… Rule #6 – You NEVER have sound autoplay.

I just finished watching the Restrepo, a documentary of the fighting in Afghanistan’s Korengal valley.  I really enjoyed it.  It was very well done, and had a very personal feeling to it because of the way it was filmed.

I have a question though, was medal of honor recipient Sal Giunta not on camera at all? I keep looking for him but I swear I couldn’t see him, nor was he one of the guys interviewed during the course of the film.  I found this especially surprising considering he was used extensively in all of the promotional videos.  From a marketing standpoint, using a guy that was awarded the medal of honor for his actions in the Korengal valley is a good choice considering all of the press such a prestigious award receives. That said, it’s kind of odd to market the film as ‘The Sal Giunta Story’ and not give him any camera time.

If I am totally out of my mind and Giunta is actually in the film please let me know in the comments… I just skipped through it again though and couldn’t find him.  Sgt. Aron Hijar does bear a resemblance to him though.

If you haven’t seen Restrepo, you can watch it online for a few bucks or buy it – HERE

Great video.  As you probably know I support unrestricted carry everywhere, whether it be concealed or open. It’s pretty easy to defend the fact that a “gun free zone” for the safety of the public is absolutely ridiculous, considering laws mean nothing to criminals.

I could be wrong, but I’m sure most of you guys would agree with me on this topic.

I haven’t got a chance to watch this yet, but VBS.TV doesn’t usually let me down.

Watch it and let me know what you think.

PBS Frontline documentaries are usually very well done.  This looks like no exception.
