Youtube helped me learn to detail strip my 19. No modifications though...certainly nothing that involves a dremel.

I found out about Decal Grips through YouTube. I shot my 23 for the first time today with them on and really like them.

I have found the various utube videos very helpfull regarding the Glock info and other firearms as well. Obviously you shouldn't go overboard with everything that you see, but I learned a lot regarding disassembly, mods., and other recomendations and am grateful that such a source of information exists!

Hickok45 has been helpful explaining different firearms. It just happened that through research I bought a Glock 19 Gen4, loved it and bought a G27 next.

Youtube wise I learned how detail strip the slide and change the mag release.

YouTube has been very helpful/educational
And fun to watch, too

Yep, youtube wasn't around when I started Glocking also. I have learned a few tricks from youtube like how to install the APEX kit in an M&P.

I had to go to YouTube to find out how to replace the magazine plate with the Pearce magazine +0 extension for a better grip on my G36.

Lots of good help from Youtube. One bad experience with installing a rear sight. Followed instructions for sizing, end up with a glow in the dark mini paperweight.

Youtube has been a gold mine of information for numerous firearms for me. I used YT a lot when I was younger to learn complete assembly/disassembly of the Mil-Surp rifles I had at the time.

Yes, I really like hickok45 too, very interesting in his presentations, and he is a pretty good shot!!

Relative to instructional videos, the answer is yes. I particularly like the Glock Store videos, concerning the "how to's" of part replacements and part additions to Glocks. For instance, hardly anything is more simple to install than a "grip plug", but just by watching the video, I knew exactly how to do it! And likewise for the "Grip Force Adapter".

And in my opinion, Lenny McGill does a good job of making the presentations/instructions simple enough for most of us to be able to understand, and follow. He is a Glock Armorer, and businessman too.

Yes, many, if not most of his videos are relative to parts the Glock store has to sell, but, business is business. I am just glad to have him tell us how to install and use the parts.

I use YouTube for all the parts u have swapped on my g26. Helps to see not just read how to do it. They all have good videos.

Just as long as GlockStore doesn't do a video on customer service...

I watch and subscribe to many firearms related YouTube channels. The top of the list is Mr. Hickok45. Very informative and entertaining videos. I learned the process for detail stripping the slide and frame from watching YouTube videos.

Like others, I use YouTube as a way to learn how to disassemble my Glock 23, my Kimber 1911, and my Chinese SKS.

Its also a fun way to learn about other weapons from people who own them.

I don't trust myself to do any serious mods on my guns, but can see how others would.

I also think its important to keep an eye on the pos/neg count on the videos and amount of views the video has had. I'm more inclined to trust a highly rated, highly viewed video.

I have learned quite a bit by watching YT. Plus, it is usually fun.

Hickok 45 is, in reality, an amazing pistol shooter with any pistol I have seen him use. Tremendous hand/eye coordination. His vids are a little long for my taste, but he just seems like a genuine person & very pleasant to listen to.
It does seem he can avoid problems I may have with some weapons because of the size of his hands. But boy o boy, that is some backyard he has

I don't think I would ever choose, however, a caliber or weapon based on YT. I really have to find an example to shoot first.

I've used it for swapping a serrated trigger to smooth and adding an extended slide release on my 17.

Tutorials can be handy and the fact that it was free only makes it sweeter.

I too came to Glock because of Hickok45. Learned a lot from watching his videos. Got my 17 G4 and am enjoying shooting every weekend so far. He decided 9 mm for me. I wanted to shoot a lot and cheaply. Every time I buy ammo, I'm beholden to him. I don't have another handgun, this is the first. But I started out wanting a 44 mag.

YES!!! Watched the instructions on disassembling the slide and the fire control group...better watching and doing than reading and doing...once done a few times it's muscle memory...
