I know nothing about guns. As a communist this makes me feel ashamed. What videos do you recommend I watch on youtube to start learning?

- The four rules of firearms safety
- Pistol shooting basics: grip/stance and technique
- Rifle shooting basics: modern rifle stance/running the AK/running the AR
- Shotgun shooting basics: stance and technique/ shotgun ammo explained
- What are the biggest differences between the AR and AK?
- I see bullet sizes noted in grains. What are grains?
- What does caliber mean?
- What are bullets and what kinds of bullets are common?
- Common firearms myths: x/ x/
A few disclaimers: these are all videos pulled from gun YT. Ignore the politics of literally all the uploaders and you’ll have a much better time. I’m not condoning literally anyone in these videos. And this is meant to give a very basic understanding of what guns are and how they function, not an in depth overview of everything there is to know about firearms, and a few of the videos could use slightly more accurate language.This is meant to serve as an intro for people who know absolutely nothing about guns. @ragemovement you are much more knowledgeable about firearms than I am- if you can think of other stuff you think beginners should know, let me know!
