I can't really find it in myself to care. Ed Brown obviously does enough business that he doesn't feel the need to do interviews. As long as the firearms are high quality and customer service is acceptable, who cares if he wants to talk to some small time web reporter? IMO EB doesn't owe anyone an apology. They paid for a gun, they got the gun they paid for, that's all that's owed.

No sympathy for self-righteous guy complaining about EB talking to some scruffy looking dude with a beard and sneakers.

Brown makes an exceptional product, but it is rather disappointing to see him be such an ass to someone who is a customer politely asking for a couple minutes of his time. All he had to say was, "I'm sorry but I'm not doing interviews today, but I'd be more than happy to take a picture with you." Regardless of who this guy is, there is no excuse for having an attitude like that towards anyone.

One of the issues is that anyone can get a video camera, throw up a firearm video on youtube and then get into SHOT because they are firearms industry "media".

01-21-2012, 22:26
If all of this is true then I would say Brown was acting the ass (no breaking news there) and that this guy pushed too hard when Brown said no interview so it got uglier. This guy should have accepted the no and moved on. His trying to intimidate Brown with talks of viral negative Ed Brown videos he makes was immature and plain ole stupid.

All that being said Brown and Bear's reputation of being asses does swing me somewhat towards others makers. Not a deal killer but a factor IMO. Wilson builds as good a gun as either and is known for their customer service. Nighthawk too from what I understand.

Sounds like both this guy and Brown both think too much of themselves.

A lot of these guys are clowns who really don't know much about firearms other than what they have read right before the video camera goes on. The reality of it is that most (not all of course) are in it for the youtube money, free stuff sent to them etc....

Well, if You did figure this out Ed Brown and any, other participant should be as smart as well. If You are in the business and taking part in Shot Show and You hate those clowns or all the people in general, You should hire a good looking and competent girl (or couple of them) to represent your brand. Being there and making ass out of yourself may not ruin your business but doesn't help in the long run as well. Rocket science it isn't.

And then when that conversation was over, he called him over by wiggling his finger, like you would call your kid or your dog?


If he wants to sit there all week and talk to his buddy

Umm, yeah. I would have been an ass to him as well.

There is definitely no need to be a jerk. I know EB will be fine. But, millions of people watch these youtube videos when researching guns. Whether this guy is goofy or not, he does have over 10,000 subscribers. When someone is researching guns, these videos come up and sway folks. If EB doesn't really care, he is not a very wise businessman. SHOT show, after all, is justa convention to promote your guns, so what do you expect to be doing? This guy didn't show up at his place of business or home asking for a couple of minutes. He showed up at a media gun convention that is designed to promote and sell guns for the new year. Not sure what EB thought goes on a SHOT.

At the end of the day, EB can do what he wants. He will still sell guns. Will it cost him sales by not doing this video? Not directly. But, with that attitude, it will cost him sales over the long term. If he doesn't care, then he is not very wise. If I were his son or whomever will inherit this business, I would start caring. I can pretty much tell you that if I'm lusting after a high-end 1911, and I can see video after video on youtube of Rob Leatham putting over SA Custom 1911's, it definitely sways me whether I want it to or not.

This is the first time I have ever heard of "Weapons Education" before and my first introduction to the guy is his nearly 12 minute whiney rant about Ed Brown. I can understand his disappointment that Ed didn't give him an interview, but...

I think he makes himself look bad, frankly. And, while I may otherwise have been inclined to spend some time trying to watching some of his videos, now I'll forever have in my mind the memory of this whiney rant.

I think he just made himself look foolish.

In fact, I think I'll post this over on his video.

Like this guy, I bought an Ed Brown SF 10 days ago, and now that I've learned Ed is sold out for the rest of 2012, even happier with it. If he wants to support Les Baer 1911's, fine. I won't buy one from the most gun unfriendly state in the nation.

I wonder if we will ever get Ed Browns side of the story...

If Ed Brown is anything other than how this jerk tries to portray him, he should let his thoughts be known.

Right from the beginning, I have been put off with the "whining" attitude from this "Tom" character of weaponseducation channel. Anyone who can't take NO for an answer, and tries to destroy someone's business out of pure malice or spite, is really low on my list of people I can respect.

So far, we only have what "Tom" has to say about it, and the little video clip of Ed Brown is obviously sometime after the "altercation", or whatever transpired happened. Somehow, I really doubt that everything went down exactly as we're being told it did.

It's possible that Ed Brown could be exactly as he's being portrayed, but considering my perception of Tom's obvious "jerk-off" personality, the opposite could be very well true.

Tom has already destroyed his integrity, IMHO.......Ed Brown is a question mark, but until we know for sure, he deserves the benefit of the doubt. It's not entirely without possibility that this could be a "clash of the jerks", but there is no doubt whatsoever, that we have at least one jerk here!

Yes, true.......but, how do you know Ed Brown wasn't courteous, but didn't want to do an interview when he was first asked? The answer is: You don't know that.

Just for consideration, let's say Tom asked Ed for an interview, and was told no initially. Just from the nature of this "hit video", I'd venture that Tom is is very likely the kind of person who pressed the point, and Ed might have eventually told Tom to come back later, just to get rid of him. (Use your imagination on this.)

I can see where it's very possible that Ed Brown ignored Tom, because Tom has personality issues.

Les Baer Shot Show 2012 weaponseducation - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qyXzuha0To)
Exactly. True, summary is that man A wanted to do an interview, man B did not want to participate. We only have one physical side of the story. However, if you are a businessman today out in public promoting your product as Mr. brown is apparently doing, (which obviously means he needs more people to buy his product) then you need to understand that how you intereact with others can affect your business. Whether we want to admit it or not, in todays world most high end purchases are researched on the internet prior to making a decision. We DO care what other prople think about both a product and a companys customer service history, as well as any personal interactions with their owner or CEO. I personally have never considered an Ed Brown product only because I have no desire to own a custom 1911. However, for those that do, it is possible that a negative image like this "might" sway someone in another direction. For me personally, if I were Mr. Ed Brown, and this encounter did not go as stated, then I might consider legal action against this reporter. However, if what he said is true, then I would give serious consideration to getting with my P.R. people and come up with some sort of responce that might soften a potential backlash.

I wonder how much social media helps or hurts sales of a specific gun. Obviously good reviews can't hurt and bad reviews probably do not help. One must also question the experience and knowledge of the person offering the opinion. Some are easier to believe than others. I wonder three years from now who will be more successful - Ed Brown or weaponseducation.com?

People should be civil, but that works both ways. After bring told no a certain number of times there is a civil, graceful way of handling that.

Sorry, seems like a real whiner. I seriously doubt shooters are going to to pass on EB based on this guy. He just gave EB additional publicity, and from my POV positive publicity.

Guy got his panties in a twist because EB didn't treat him special.

Ed Brown will get more than a few future customers turned away by that video, no magic about it. Lots of people believe things they hear on the internet. I would not spend my hard earned money on a gun made by a guy who's a dick head.

Really how freaking hard would it be for Brown to put on a smile and BS with the guy for a few minutes? :whistling:

I can't really find it in myself to care. Ed Brown obviously does enough business that he doesn't feel the need to do interviews. As long as the firearms are high quality and customer service is acceptable, who cares if he wants to talk to some small time web reporter? IMO EB doesn't owe anyone an apology. They paid for a gun, they got the gun they paid for, that's all that's owed.

No sympathy for self-righteous guy complaining about EB talking to some scruffy looking dude with a beard and sneakers.
Fully Agree, also I really dont see ed brown was all that rude. He just diddnt wanna talk to the guy. That and I feel safe in saying I bet theres a seconed half of the storry that is not being told

Activist/journalists with cameras keep cops from acting like "ass clowns".


Nature has no mercy on those who won't adapt.

Activist/journalists do not get questions answered when waving cameras or audio recorders in my face. They have become a journalist with an agenda at that time. My department expressly forbids me from seaking to a journalist and would back me up 100% in not talking to a journalist with an agenda.

If they want to tape me that is fine I will do my job the right way no matter what. I dare them to find something out of policy or against the law. I dare you to find something. You better be right because I will sue for slander or libel.

If they wanted to ask me a question as a concerned citizen I would answer and they would probably be okay with my answer. Since they have an agenda they would never be happy. I think somepeople are only happy when they are pointing out what others do wrong.

Just like this guy with a camera trying to get an interview with EB. I suspect EB isn't going to do an interview with some guy who posts videos online. He might do it with a professional journalist. He will probably do it with a professional journalist who tells him before hand what they are going to be asked.

I have no sympathy for the youtube clown.

Most folks with enough coin to by a Brown, will take this for what it truly is. A whiner on the internet , claiming, that Ed was rude to him with absolutely no proof.

As I stated earlier in this thread, I have no doubt Ed was crass towards him. Ed always is. What you are missing is... ED HAS BEEN THAT WAY FOR 30+ years. He doesn't care what anyone thinks of him. He lets his products do the talking. If you want a high quality 1911, get a Brown. If you want touchie, feely, interview, call Oprah.

Mr. Brown makes some of the finest 1911's in the world and this Youtube Commando thinks the world should stop when he "Motions Mr. Ed Brown" to come over and talk to him. It just goes to prove that "Natural Selection" goes haywire every now and then.

What a huge chunk of queerbait that guy is. Brown told you he wasn't interested in an interview, yet you continue to press the issue and get more and more butt hurt and *****y, and he's the rude one?

In a way, it reminds me of people that get bent when they encounter some celebrity, and said celebrity isn't thrilled about some weirdo stranger accosting them, and the weirdo whines about it like Brad Pitt or whoever owes them something. A performer owes their audience nothing but the performance. Ed Brown owes his customers nothing but the guns.

Colts will always hold their value more, but there is no comparison in quality.

There are plenty of ways to make a 1911 when it comes to quality of parts and the fitting of those parts. Colt isn't even in the same ballpark.

I own an Ed Brown SF and a Colt 1911 Government Model I bought new in 1962 at a gun shop in National City, Ca just outside the 32nd Street Naval Station for $87.50 + tax. The Colt is nice, but
can't hold a candle to the Ed Brown.

I fail to see an issue with Ed Browns reaction if it was actually ashtray this guy said it was. The only thing he owes to his customers are top quality firearms. While I do not own a Brown, every one that I have shot or handled has over delivered on quality.

I currently work in customer service actually. I bend over backwards to make sure I take care of every person that I take an order for. Me selling them a product does not mean that I am going to chat with them for hours or buy them a beer afterwards.

I don't know this guy....but he seems to feel we all should. Arrogant is my first impression.

Reading body language, there's more to this story.

Ed Brown has had a long standing reputation in the industry as being "rude." But that's a perception that's going to vary person by person. In the case of the guy in the vid....it seems more of a "how dare you not know who I am" type of deal.

If I was Ed Brown and I'm at Shot Show, and I've got this guy hounding me...and far more valid people wanting interviews...then no...I wouldn't give him an interview either. I'm not defending Ed necessarily, but if I'm confident in my product....what do I need this guy for? Who the hell is he and honestly...who cares?

The guy in the vid though seemed enjoy running Ed down in terms of how "in touch" he is personally is with the internet with "weaponseducation" and this guys "friend" is hickcock45. Dropping names. How does Hickcock45 play into this...he's a moot point. I didn't see Hickcock in the vid and doubt this doofus speaks for him.

Hickcock45 might shoot and own a lot of guns...but so what? Who cares? I don't. I know who Hickcock is...but again...why should I personally care? Many of Hickcock's opinions are just that...opinions...and many of them flat out wrong....so why even bring him into the conversation...it doesn't make this guy any more valid by dropping names.

Bottom line is this guy has an inflated self opinion of himself, his site, his vids and his connections. Sounds like he got his bubble burst by Ed and doesn't know how to deal with it.

I agree that this guy is being a whiney little girl, about his experience with Ed Brown. But after seeing this video and how friendly and gracious Les Baer is, it really highlights, how being nice and open with the public, is going to be much better for your business in the long run.

The public is what makes your business. If you can't take 2 minutes to make nice and promote YOUR product, at the biggest promotional show in the industry, then why even show up? Brown should have stayed home if he's such a prick.

That's not what I was saying. We weren't there...we don't know the whole story. I'm not defending Ed Brown....I don't even own one of his guns.

Ed is known to be "rude." The guy in the vid has an obvious inflated level of self importance. Those two factors combined are not going to end well.

This guy in the vid though was obviously presenting himself as more than just a "customer." Again, I can't speak for Ed, but I'm pretty sure he'd be grateful enough to say "thanks" to people who've purchased his guns or even parts. Again...this guy though had an angle and an intention from the start. He wanted to boost his rep and notoriety by interviewing Ed Brown but got shot down. The guy in the vid could give a crap about you or me...this is about expanding his brand name of "weaponseducation." He's certainly getting himself some attention now though....and why? Because he's trashing someone far more established than himself. Otherwise we wouldn't even care about this guy would we?

Flip holds true for the haters....If Ed publicly trashed this guy...then yeah...I'd have no respect for Ed. So lets just shut that argument down before it starts.

Thats the 1911 world for ya... gun snobbery at its finest. Eccentric gifted millionaire business owners are often socially awkward. Thats no surprise.

Yes EB makes $7000 top shelf guns but there is no need to be a snob. Especially at Shot Show where talking to industry people and pres is kinda expected. Ive talked to many a CEO at Shot Show and they were always nice and respectful even though in the grand scheme of things firearms... I am a gnat (not even a fly) lol.

In Ed's defense. If he doesnt want to talk on camera then the press should respect that decision. I got disrespected at a Shot Show booth (Camelback of all people lol) but I have a thick skin and moved on. Camelback...go figure??? Usually the government defense companies are the most standoffish since they dont need the press but Camelback??? Simply hilarious.

He said he'd never buy another Ed Brown pistol, but is hanging on to the two that he already owns.

If you are that put off by the way the man treated you, enough so to make a video about it, why not renounce owning or associating yourself with any of his products? :dunno:

Ed was 100 per cent correct in his attitude, this is a Closed to the public show, for Manufactures , Gun Brokers,and Dealers only, PROFESSIONALS, there is a reason for that, and that is to keep people like you out. Do not be surprised if certain rules pertaining to the criteria defining what credentials and years of experience the Press will need prior to admission in the coming years.

I sat with ED for half an hour in his booth, he was nasty, blunt and to the point, typical Ed, great guy once you take him for what he is, A MASTER in every phase of his products.

That is not me in the video, I just thought it was a good laugh so I decided to post it on here. I have no interest in going to Shot Show anyway, I'm not "media" and also don't have contracts or a gun business. Maybe some time in the future, but I don't think so. I'll stick to letting the other idiots critique the looks, size, weight and "Philosophy of use" before ever even buying the gun.

I'm not in the market for an Ed Brown firearm, nor would I purchase one in my income level, it's just not in my price range as Kimber is as well. I think there are cheaper alternatives that can do the same job.

Saying that, that guy should have hung up and called the wambulance. Ya, Ed could have been a bit nicer, but this guy is a hurt puppy.

I had springfields in the past. I sold them and ended up buying a Ed Brown. I haven't looked back. The Brown was almost 4 times the cost of a new springfield but is 4 times the gun.

You simply do not understand the power of social networking then. If they change the rules they do so at their own peril. Welcome to this century.




Nature has no mercy on those who won't adapt.
There were a lot of YouTube'ers at SHOT this year, myself included.

The response is overwhelmingly positive with regards to how most manufacturers viewed getting exposure on the internet. Why? Because they're all talking about the popularity of social networks and how most firearms purchases are done AFTER the buyer searches for reviews online.

YouTube'ers, bloggers and other internet media outlets will only continue to grow in popularity with manufacturers. Savvy manufacturers know that with a few bad reviews/comments that get traction on the internet, their sales numbers can take a down turn.

How serious are YouTube'ers being taken these days? Guns and Ammo approached me to shoot several videos and edit them for display on their website at SHOT Show this year. My qualifications? I have a YouTube channel.

Here are the videos I produced:
http://www.gunsandammo.com/2012/01/20/introducing-the-lwrc-psd-300-in-300-blackout/
http://www.gunsandammo.com/2012/01/20/introducing-the-colt-le901/
http://www.gunsandammo.com/2012/01/20/introducing-the-beretta-arx160/

My channel: http://www.military-arms.com

So yes, social media is being taken seriously. I highly doubt social media sources will be excluded from SHOT in the future. If anything, I suspect their popularity will continue to grow.

I spoke to Mr. Brown at the show. He was quick to pose for a picture with me and my camera man. I didn't request an interview because I'm not at SHOT to do celebrity interviews, I'm there to cover what's new and exciting in the firearms community. I suspect Mr. Brown wasn't there to give celebrity interviews, he was there to sell firearms and to meet people that were interested in buying them, or parts for them.

A lot of fluff and buff. They do things like put french borders on the slide or match up serrations on the rear of the slide and the rear of the extractor. Some of the more useful stuff is taking a supertight slide and frame set and making sure it runs like a bullet train on rails or shaping an extractor to perfection.

In other words some of it is cosmetic and some of it is useful. Where the line gets drawn is a personal issue.

It reminds me of a 4506 I once carried on duty. It had a mirror polish on the feed ramp when new. A few thousand rounds later it was chewed up from rounds bashing into it on their way into the chamber. Did the mirror polish help or was it cosmetic?

Lol, Im a firearms youtube reviewer. Its my hobby.

But for the record, I go to Shot Show for work. I do video interviews of the LE booths for work, but those videos dont get posted to my channel. I video the LE products that I think we could use at work and report back with video to my boss and pray we have the budget to buy some cool toys for the dept.

My channel came by accident. I didnt create it initially to build a career in firearms media broadcasting. It would be nice if that happens eventually though.

Im sure if complaints go up on the youtube reviewers, Shot Show administrators will scrutinize what youtube channels will be allowed in the Show in the future. And they should.

As for Ed Brown 1911's? Eh, Im not into super expensive 1911s but thats just me. I get excited beating up a $400 RIA. I dont know if i'd want to beat up an Ed Brown? Can you imagine banging and scratching up an Ed Brown on rocks and sand? (cringe!)

I could care less if he's a a** sometimes. I am too, especially if I don't have my coffee in the morning. If the guy doesn't want to do an interview, then he doesn't have too. Too bad for the camera guy if that's the case. Move on and interview someone else. Like you said, the place is huge and I'm sure you could have found another custom 1911 maker and conducted a great interview with them. Ed had his shot with you, but chose to not take it. Big deal.

You got that right. My parents had a carpenter I knew since I was a kid. I was in my 30s and my parents were away and asked me to stop by the house and see what he did.

Limits on non-industry people would be a huge plus. Ask any gun shop owner.
Gun shop owners are only one part of the intended equation. Ask any manufacturer and they're not just interested in talking to gun shop owners, but they're also interested in talking to media to help get the word out about new products. Almost all of the big names spend quite a bit of money putting together "media kits". The number of people walking around with broadcast media passes (what's required for YouTube) is relatively small. If you took a 100 attendees at random, you might find 2 broadcast media types. Heck, look at all the money spent and the effort put into Media Day at the Range. The manufacturers bring out their wares to a range outside of town, setup booths on the range displaying their products then give away thousands upon thousands of rounds to be fired by the media, to test their new products. That seems to me they're very interested in the media.

I would say the most common attendee is that small town gun shop owner who just wants to come to the worlds largest gun show and bring all of his friends. I didn't hear a single vendor complain about media, but I heard a plenty of complaints about people taking up the time of their reps answering questions only to find out the person asking the questions weren't there to do any type of business, but were guests of someone else. Media is there to write articles, shoot video, take pictures... all of which is beneficial to the manufacturer if it actually makes it either into print or online somewhere.

There are already limits on broadcast media. First, you have to submit requests from manufacturers for interviews if you're not with a big publisher. If you are annoying vendors or aren't professional enough, they can remove your floor access and only allow you to interview the companies for which you have a pass. You get two people in as broadcast media. Yourself and one guest which is usually your cameraman. So, if you're actually a nuisance, they already have a mechanism for dealing with it.

But as I said, the response from vendors displaying at SHOT is overwhelmingly positive in terms of how they view the social media journalist.

Let me see if I understand you all correctly. A guy has media credentials and has every right to be there filming and interviewing at the LARGEST GUN EXPO on the planet. I'd say Ed Brown KNOWS what SHOT SHOW is about. He goes up to EB and tells him how he's a customer, bought a few of his guns and convinced many of his online buds to do the same and wants to ask him for 3 minutes of his time to talk to the many people who may be fans of EB and would be interested in what he has to say. EB then sends him away and he comes back 3 times out of respect for him to ask him for the interview. After all this time EB stubbornly refuses to even say a word to him in an interview and not only that, but blasts him and tells him he could care less about the online community that is "out there" and that he'll sell his guns no matter what. Basically a prima donna being a total DICK.
And you all think the guy asking for the interview is the jerk??

Something else, really something else.

Only in America can you hoodwink people into buying your overpriced pistols, brag about how dumb they are for doing it and have people cheering you on and blasting the guy asking politely for a few words on camera at MEDIA DAY.

Yeah you all make perfect sense.

The hilarious thing is that Ed Brown is going home every night and laughing his ***** off at all those people that have bought out his inventory for 2012. Why did he even go to SHOT then?

It certainly sounds like that "Mrweaponseducation" was a jerk. But so was Ed Brown. As to his overly expensive handguns. To each their own.

I was wondering that myself? Why spend the time and money to go to Shot Show if all your guns are already sold out for the year and you dont need any promotion and your guns sell all by themselves???

That's true. I understand that Mr. WE was probably rude and annoying and that pissed of Brown so he didn't want to be filmed by him. And maybe he doesn't do interviews on camera like he seems to say unless he can completely control the content, but isn't that supposed to be the whole idea of SHOT. To promote your products? Yes, I understand it's an Industry thing, that isn't catered to the general public, but who knows.

I still believe they both acted like stupid kids.

Eff 'em both. Mr. weaponsedukashun is a tard who can't seem to grasp the concept of "No".

Mr. Brown has a reputation of being a stand-offish ass.

I could care less about either. I don't have a lot of interest in plunking down 3 grand on a single gun. (That'd be 6 brand new glocks, or one glock and thousands upon thousands of rounds of ammo for it.)

Dude needs to get a life, and probably a lawyer. I bet Ed Brown can afford a good one. Mr. internetvideo man - probably not so much.

If my stuff was sold out, I'd pay to go to the shot show so I could wander around and look at the other stuff.

Let me see if I understand you all correctly. A guy has media credentials and has every right to be there filming and interviewing at the LARGEST GUN EXPO on the planet. I'd say Ed Brown KNOWS what SHOT SHOW is about. He goes up to EB and tells him how he's a customer, bought a few of his guns and convinced many of his online buds to do the same and wants to ask him for 3 minutes of his time to talk to the many people who may be fans of EB and would be interested in what he has to say. EB then sends him away and he comes back 3 times out of respect for him to ask him for the interview. After all this time EB stubbornly refuses to even say a word to him in an interview and not only that, but blasts him and tells him he could care less about the online community that is "out there" and that he'll sell his guns no matter what. Basically a prima donna being a total DICK.
And you all think the guy asking for the interview is the jerk??

Something else, really something else.

I'm thinking, that there is already too many people putting up crappy firearms/weapons channels on youtube. There is good channels, but weaponseducation is not one of them.

I watch a lot of them and there are some crappy channels out there. And weaponseducation always came off as pompous to me.

I watched about twenty-five seconds of this video before deciding to give "WE" the ban.

You just have to admit it, this is ... :dunno:

JUST SCARY!

I think Mr. Ed made a wise choice.

This guy is giving gun owners a bad rep. Good on Ed Brown for not giving this guy any more reason or encouragement for future web videos. If we call ShotShow can we have his media permit revoked. I do not want this person representing me as a gun owner.

Well I don't like Ed. Brown so I don't buy his handguns, nor do I recomend them to anyone. Saying that this guy is a punk whiner, sounds like a transplanted New Yorker who thinks everyone should do him a favor(I hate his accent), so I don't go to his website either.

Les makes a beautiful gun, and the cardboard has some charm, but I'd be a little peeved at not getting a case after spending that much.

It'd be a lot more believable if he'd recorder Ed being a jerk.

Otherwise, sounds like he just said he didn't want to do an interview and offered a picture.

I feel like my head is going to split open after that video - guy sounds like that whiny guy on Friends... nails on a chalkboard.
