I know that a lot of you have been watching the gun building videos that I have been posting on You Tube. A couple days ago I got a message from You Tube that they removed 10 of my videos because they are harmful to the community. Yes, that is what they said. I did the appeal thing that they have. Today they responded by denying the appeal and removing all the rest of the videos. I did the appeals thing on those also but am not expecting any positive result. My You Tube account is also suspended for a while. So it looks the You Tube that I did are gone and there will not be any more.

I like building guns and I like making the videos. I plan to keep on doing it. I just need to figure out a new place to post them. I am not much of a high tech guy. Do any of you know of any alternatives to You Tube that are a bit more gun friendly? I will put up all the videos in another place. I have backups of all the videos. It will take a while to get them all posted again. It takes a few hours to upload each one and there are over 200 of them so far. I will get started as soon as I find a new place to post them.
This kind of thing happens to a lot of you tube content creators. You have to pay close attention to key words that might trigger the AI program.
Many content creators have a backup channel, but give the appeals process some time for review. I have no doubt you'll be back posting great videos in no time.
YouTube is still full of great muzzle loader building videos.

You Tube did their appeal thing and the final decision is no. I am not going to tiptoe around a bunch of liberal gun haters. Better to just be done with You Tube and move it all somewhere else. I got a one week suspension. When that is over I will post a video letting the subscribers know where to find the gun building stuff and that will be the last video that I put on You Tube.

I disagree.
Youtube gives you something other platforms like Full30 don't.
The ability to introduce muzzleloading to a world wide audience of non-shooters.

The decision is yours though, I will miss seeing your videos.
Thank you for the opportunity while it lasted.

Seemed pretty clear that YouTube won’t allow him to introduce muzzleloading to their audience because it’s muzzleloading. Awful hard to get around that one on tiptoe or not.

Yet. I can find a 100 more videos of the same. So, whatever it was that prompted youtube, I doubt it was building muzzleloaders itself.

I watch a lot of you tube videos, mainly about camping and guns. Ive watched a ton of Mike Bellivue's videos. I hope they dont take his channel down.

Yoitube lately though is really starting to piss me off with their damned ads. Someday soon you wont be able to skip them. It's coming. Thatll be my last day watching youtube when that happens.

And they are going to self destruct when they start losing viewers due to censorship and the leftist doctrine.. And it will serve them right.

It's literally becoming television.

What do you suppose it might be? Most of Idaholewis’ videos have been canceled as well.

You Tube's enforcement of policy is pretty random. I have heard from a number of people that have had their videos for removed for unknown reason. Not just gun related. They have removed archery videos also. They are going after anything involving conservative politics. Religious is content is also being removed. Some stuff gets removed while other stuff that is basically the same remains.

You Tube came right out and said it was because I was showing how to build guns. "Ghost Guns" are the big bad scary thing right now. There are still a lot of videos on there showing the same thing that I was. I suspect that they will be picked off one at a time until they are all gone.

@Idaholewis doesn’t teach anyone how to do anything but hit targets at long range. That’s probably what scared the pudding out of the fine folks at YouTube.

Hey Bill I was in the process of watching all of the mountian rifle videos you had up. I'm not happy about them being taken down.. but you should build a punt gun and bolt it to front of a pigroue!

They are afraid of ,number 1, getting sued. 2, having to go to court to testify why a gun video was shown that encourages violence. And 3 , fitting in with the rest of the “woke crowd”. As you know, gun = bad in their book…
