I've been following him for a while now it's pretty interesting. If you want to search for a cool gun review search for Lahti anti tank gun. I can't beleive they let him fire it.

I too have long been a subscriber, and I support the channel through Patreon as well. It's a quality channel that I'd love to see picked up by a network like Discovery.

I think Discovery would screw it up. They'd add a bunch of unnecessary drama just for ratings.

Personally, I'd rather see a network like the Outdoor Channel pick them up. They've got a block of programming on Wednesday called "Wednesday Night at the range" that features a bunch of gun related shows. I think a "Forgotten Weapons" show would fit right in.

Yea that's pretty bad but at least it fired rifle bullets.

The Italian support machine gunner had to use this:
The Villar Perosa M15- Twin top feeding Magazines give a total capacity of 50 rounds but it's fired from 2 breeches at 1200rpm. It fires a weak 9mm glisenti pistol round (power wise it's around 32 acp levels) The Italians wanted to use standard 9mm Luger ammo but it kept blowing up their pistols (that they had already mass produced in 9mm Luger). So what did they do?

Hey Luigi use the 9mm bullets and cases just back off on the powder by half.
Sure thing Mario. Problem solved.

I'm subbed to his channel. He has an uncanny knack for making the history and technical details of any weapon seem absolutely fascinating. He and Hickock45 almost tempt me into collecting old milsurp firearms, but that's a hobby I could never afford.

I believe it was History Channel that tried to have a show called "Forgotten Weapons" without the inclusion of charismatic Ian "Gun Jesus" McCollum. Forgotten Weapons fought these efforts at impersonation and won. Info on it is scarce, and I must admit I only know of this because it popped up on an Ian McCollum fan page more or less when the lawsuit was won.
