For anybody who watches aire gun videos on YouTube this will be a familiar face. An alternative to YouTube. A new safe space for air gun videos.

Considering the irony of it being announced on YT, it's a bold move.


The new breakaway reble site is airgun101.com

http://airgun101.com

Found it to be a great site. But commenting is a bit awkward. Guy from slingshot channel has teamed up with worlds biggest trade union to take on you tube on behalf of content creators. That should prove to be interesting too. Sorry about side note. Everyone should check out Airgun 101 think it is a fantastic alternative to you tube. thanks for bring it up here for those who may not know. :drinkers:

Although it has it's fair share of problems YT was ideal for growth and income. Anyone could by chance come across the content and the creators rewarded for the views. The dedicated site is good for us who are in the know but not ideal for the content creators like Giles. Now it is likely the sponsors will be focused to the industry in our community. I hope the ag content creators can find a way to make it work but it is a big blow.

The fellow behind it is forking out the dough to pay for his own web server hoping advertising and subscription while earn a profit. While a basic webpage can be hosted for $200 to $400 a year a website set up specifically to stream video can have annual costs of $10,000 to $30,000 dollars a year. That's just the servers and bandwidth fees. Add on administration costs and ur at $80,000 to $120,000.

I'm hoping his new website will be as significant to airguns as rimfirecentral.com is to 22Lr.

That is quite a venture - I wish Giles and his community a successful site.

I, too, wish him all the best.
However, costs as stated, if accurate, ( :roll: ) are out of reach.
There are so many ways to do a niche Internet thing at much less cost.
Perhaps an airgun forum with streaming capabilities.

Great to have a dedicated AirGun server that is not going to be regulated/restricted by non-airgun users!

An expensive endeavor - guess if we want it to succeed we need to support it by subscribing, watching the advertisements and clicking the advertiser's links. Think it is a small price to pay for our hobby.

Now, I need to get one of those hats!! Maybe a couple of our Canadian airgun suppliers could get in a stock of them so the next time I buy pellets I can add a hat to the order.

I just checked and there’s are only 6900 subscribers . If we hope to keep this video streaming service going we need to subscribe . I’ve done so three months ago and encourage every airgun enthusiasts to do the same .
