That movie is 40 minuets 9 seconds of your life that you will never get back. I wonder if they still use those old training films?

Definitely unexciting for those who already know guns.
But for total newbies, it's a very useful movie. Unfortunately, today's youth don't have the attention span.
Regardless, I really like the old training movies, so: thanks for the link, Amsdorf!

Yep, if they are interested enough in such things to spend the time, I could see how someone new to this could get a lot from it.

I get a kick out of old training movies too, so I enjoyed it.

I liked it. Think I may use that to explain things to my boys when they get a bit older. Of course I'll have to edit for content because there's no way they'll sit still for 40 minutes. Very informative for anyone who doesn't already understand firearms.

I enjoyed watching the video. I watched it in segments while caring for my wife. I think it was a video that I watched in bootcamp back in '72.
