Great video !! I have wanted a BAR since watching Combat !! as a kid..Each year they get a little more out of reach though...I just dont think I would be satisfied with a semi auto.....Oh well...nice to dream..

Great video by hickock.

I really want that rifle.... but just looked it up, and i dont have over 4k to spend.
Back in the early 90's I was offered a registered WWII BAR for $3k and turned it down. I'm still kicking myself.

Balancing the reality of what you want vs. what you need sucks. Been there too.

Thanks for posting the vid!

One of my favorite firearms. I'm hoping to pick one up if I manage to get
to Free America.

Not to complain but

If he taught like he posts, I feel very sorry for his students. Three minutes of fun surrounded by twenty minutes of bull sh1t. I think he was a preacher in a former life.

Yeah I find him a little long winded also, he could cut his video lenghts in half, but I think he just likes to here himself talk.

I always enjoy when he breaks out the old school guns. Some of you guys may be interested in this video Forgotten Weapons put out a few weeks ago. They use an FG-42 and a BAR in a 2 gun match and the results really surprised me. Great video from a great channel.

Rather than going by what those two clowns say, I would use what the troops in WWII actually said about the BAR.

Check out "US Infantry Weapons in Combat" basically, 100% of the men interviewed in that book who carried the BAR loved it.
