Big 3 East, Daytona Beach, FL

Big 3 East, Daytona Beach, FL



The Big 3 East is a gathering of firearms writers, bloggers, manufacturers, and just recently YouTubers in the outskirts of Daytona Beach, FL. The event is the brainchild of CJ Johnson of Wolf Performance Ammunition and well known gun writer David Fortier.

The event was started to allow small manufacturers to showcase their products to many of the prominent writers in the industry including James Tarr, Timothy Yan and Richard Venola. This year we were invited to come down and be a part of the event providing coverage and a social media outlet to showcase many of the interesting products that were on display.

This event continues to get larger and larger every year, and we plan on being a part of it in the future.

    great video…great info

  19. DawnForReal on October 29, 2021 at 6:38 pm

    I most honestly believe special ops in the military should be using the MGI concept. How many times do you see videos of military and their running low on ammo for their M4’s. But then they find a AK-47 ammo stash, but they can’t use the ammo because it’s simple the wrong caliber and they lose the firefights.

  20. Sudo on October 29, 2021 at 6:39 pm

    18:00 the guy looks and sounds like a smaller and fatter Matt Damon!

    Watch all ur videos. Keep up the great work!

  47. Muzzle Brake on October 29, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    Why didn’t they show the Faxon upper receiver? These things are cool because they can outlast most upper receivers due to their construction and they stay cool when you shoot them. I think the ARAK 21 is the future of the AR. it’s just too bad they only have two caliber but all you’d have to do is change barrels and you can shoot either 5.56 or .300 blk out depending on which barrel you have. Check it out. FaxonArmory
