American Arms Channel

Hey folks! Just a quick channel update featuring some of my critters, where to find the channel if youtube axes it, and what’s in the works! Hope this gives you some insight and keeps you tuning in. God Bless, and Keep Your Powder Dry!

My final verdict on the SBE3 is out: it is exceptional! If you were looking for that final push to go out and buy an SBE 3, this is it. Over almost 2 years and 4,000+ rounds of ammunition, the SBE3 is still taking a lickin’ and keepin’ on tickin’!

The first 5 shots out of the new .458 SOCOM build. Thanks for watching!

Here we take the M3020 out for a pattern testing session with 3 different brands. All brands are a 7/8oz charge of #2 shot. Shots are taken at 15 and 30 yards respectively for each load.

First looks at the MIGHTY 460 ROWLAND! I’ve created a monster. The venerable SR1911 has become beast with the Clark Custom Guns 460 Rowland conversion kit dropped into it. Stay tuned for many videos featuring this exciting handgun cartridge.

I’m back with another video on the PSA “Poverty Shorty!” 821 rounds in and she’s ticking right along! This is a long video, but bear in mind that it is focusing on the full report of performance thus far and what the internals are showing for wear.

I got a new handgun! That shouldn’t be a surprise, haha! This SR1911 will be put through its paces, and the first 100 rounds were excellent! Stay tuned for updates and a full review!

Here we take a look at and discuss the CZ P-07. I give my initial impressions, current round count as of the date of this video, and a general overview of the handgun.

Thanks for watching! God Bless and Keep Your Powder Dry!

Here we just take a quick look at an outstanding example of a 1973 Plymouth Road Runner.

Here I take my first shots with my wife’s new concealed carry weapon, the CZ P-07 in 9mm Luger. Initial impressions are that I love this handgun and it definitely has a better feel to me than any other handgun in its size/class. I still prefer my M9, but I do want one of my own!

Light attached is the Streamlight TLR-7.

First 5 shots are Speer Gold Dot Hollow Points 124gr (standard pressure), the second Mag is Tulamo 115gr Range fodder)

This is a raw out-take of the footage for BCW Ep.2: Wild and Wonderful Woodies. I make a quick and solid shot on a group of passing woodies, selecting the outside Drake as my target. To my astonishment and pleasant surprise, the downed bird is not just a beautiful Drake Wood Duck, but he is Banded!

Here is a compilation of b-roll I figured I’d share with y’all on the Palmerto State Armory 10.5” Phosphate Magpul MOE Pistol build. This kit was shipped as you see it, minus the Anderson Mfg. virgin lower receiver, Daniel Defense rear sight, and other accessories.

So far, I am impressed with the kit. While the pistol does recoil more than anticipated, it is noting that can not be managed by an experienced and competent shooter when the need for rapid fire arises.

Here we take a look at how to disassemble the Action Spring Tube on the SBE 3.

Welcome to the very first episode of the hunting show for this channel, Bad Company Waterfowl.

In this episode, I hunt alone on the New River in Southwestern Virginia during the states Early Resident Goose Season and Early Teal Season. Follow along as I take a single goose and have to call for an "extraction" downriver as the water rapidly rises and becomes too quick to paddle back up river.

It was Late February in Central City, Nebraska and the white devils returned in greater numbers than 2017. It was the first morning I had seen any sizable flocks touch down around town, and I could not pass up the opportunity. I retrieved my SBE 3 from the truck and a box of Hevi-Steel 3” BB shells, walked across the road from my office to the neighbors and asked permission to kill ‘em. (I was given a resounding “Go Get ‘Em Off Our Field!).

I had thousands of eyes looking so I did not get as close as I would have liked, but I downed and recovered 14 birds (including 3 Ross’s Geese).

Have you considered hunting with an old Auto 5 or Auto 5 Magnum? How about just any old duck gun that you may have collecting dust in a closet or gun cabinet? If so, you may be concerned with using modern steel ammunition in your old gun or whether or not you should risk using it in conditions that may cause rust, dings, scratches or dents. Well, fear not and ponder no longer! In today's video, I will lay the groundwork for what ammo is safe to use, how to set up your Auto-5 to shoot modern ammo, and things to consider when shopping for and selecting an old Auto-5 (or other old guns) to take on a hunt.

Thanks for watching and as always, God Bless and Keep Your Powder Dry!
