forgotten weapons

Whoa:

Pistols of the Warlords kickstarter is currently sitting at $1051645.  That’s a LOT of money to pull in for a couple niche books, but when you put it in perspective that 5745 people are backing the kickstarter, it definitely seems more doable.  Make me really think I should get going on that Sheepdog Fan Fiction book.

The previous two Kickstarters for books that Forgotten Weapons’ Ian did, were met with great success as well.  Thorneycroft to SA80: British Bullpup Firearms, 1901–2020 ($579,585) and Chassepot to FAMAS: French Military Rifles, 1866 – 2016 ($800,256).  Honestly, no wonder though… they look like amazing quality and I’m sure the research is top notch as we have come to expect from him.

Yooo is that shirt Ian is rocking in the video Visvim? 🤔 He’s really stunting on us poors now that he’s pulling $M bags.  Kidding.

Oh this is a system all right..

Ian gets his hands on the craziest stuff hahah.  Someone needs to make an AR-15 version of this.

Very cool:

You can always trust Forgotten Weapons Ian for detailed info.

4:40 – ahhah the tubular lock safety on the bottom

10:06 – I wonder if you could just swap out the slide backplate with the Spectre, and then the Glock slide would work?

14:10 – I knew this was coming haha – “The 1911 people really disliked the Glock elements, and the Glock people really disliked the 1911 elements and you end up pleasing virtually nobody”

Brandon’s reaction to the original Forgotten Weapons video.  He goes through the entire video so you can probably skip watching that original linked video:

Ruined Brandon’s day… you hate to see it.  Not being an AK guy to the level that Brandon is… I still cringed over and over and over.

Wow, the kickstarter for his book on French Military Rifles is currently at $418,400 😲😲😲.

I really appreciate what Ian does and he seems like a truly genuine good person, but I rarely watch Forgotten Weapons.  Frankly I’m just not that interested in old firearms, I’m more interested in innovative new stuff.  I’m actually quite shocked (maybe I shouldn’t be?) that 3040 people so far want an $85 book on French Military rifles even though the book looks very detailed and beautifully put together.  The Vickers Guide stuff from Larry Vickers is more my speed… I’m assuming I’m not in the minority here, which makes me think that if a book on French Military rifles can pull in almost a 1/2 million dollars with 15 days left, how much do Larry’s 1911, AR-15, and Kalashnikov books make? 🤔🤔🤔 Man… I need to really get that Sheepdog Fan Fiction VOL 1 edited and published.  I’d did some math, and if I crunched the number correctly I should be able to make at least $7M off it.

haha Forgotten Weapons delivers:

A quick scroll through the comments turns up little to no butthurt.  Surprising.

The original writings are by Fr. Frog and can be found here.  This is all further proof that Browning Did 1911.
