    “Who cheapen our movement by mixing guns and porn” typical prudish Yank, titties are bad but guns are to be glorified. Give your fucking head a shake dude.

  2. Big D on December 9, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    Sooooo…Am I the only one wanting a link to the full video…??? 🤔🤔🤔

  3. Jerry Mister on December 9, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Judging by the title of this video it’s nothing more than another click bait piece of shit. Why do mother fuckers have to do that shit?

  4. controversy on December 9, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Edge of the precious oof….

  5. Louis Babycos on December 9, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    Get well .
    What’s with the title ?

  6. Maniac742 on December 9, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    I’m not really sure what everyone thought Taran and his army of gun bunnies were doing when they weren’t shmoozing with celebrities or posting on Instagram. It was apparent to anyone with a brain from the start why Taran kept these women around. Are they all wonderful shooters? Yes, but that doesn’t preclude them from being used for sex or using their sex to get with Taran and in turn get access to the Hollywood elite. We all knew it was happening. We just lied to ourselves about it.

  7. SemperFidelisTyrannosaurus on December 9, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    So he made a racy video with his actual girlfriend? Seriously? Thats it? By the amount of outrage people were feigning i though maybe he pressured her to flash the crowd at SHOT. People are really fucking stupid and just looking for something to make themselves seem morally superior to their competitors. At least you actually had a negative public opinion of the guy BEFORE the video surfaced.

  8. Jesse Vang on December 9, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    White label took a tackle box and relabeled it, genius

  9. Ken on December 9, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Thank you! Finally an honest take on the overblown bullshit Taran Tac vid… absolutely ridiculous the amount of pandering and virtue signaling over what amounted to be a girlfriend and boyfriend flirting with each other… wow unreal.

  11. uncle Ben on December 9, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    I could tell as soon as the video started that you were not well. Hope you are on the mend. Don’t know why youtube waited a week and a half to show me this. Prob the Taran conspiracy cover up.

  12. Pat G on December 9, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    No people are mad cause thats creepy as shit

  13. Khum Dhan on December 9, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    i hate when "adults" get upset about actual adults doing adult things.

  14. Claude Baron on December 9, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    I don’t say it’s ok or anything, but I just want to say that for what I see in the short clip it showed here, it’s just that she didn’t seemed offended at all, and was laughing in a flirty way, and also he didn’t touch her and she herself was going to show him, she was clearly in it and not against it, if she was under 18 now that’s a whole other story and please no mercy, but if she’s 18 and + and even he’s 40 or 50, they’re allowed to do whatever they want together, and don’t fool yourself, young women’s today have no problems with having a older boyfriend has long has he has moneys, todays they don’t even care what he look like, if he has moneys it’s ok, they’re claiming it loud and clear and are proud of it, so until I’ve heard the whole story, I won’t condamne him.

  19. Hotel CharliHill on December 9, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    why was anyone surprised that slob was banging those girls? I knew it the moment I watched that keanu reeves training vid. He was greasy… and those poor girls looked the type to do whatever to stay on the payroll and get perks. Tragic. On that note, I hope you’re not sick from going down on pros…. (oh, apologiess, I just read your thoughts on gun bunnies and objectification. I salute you!)

  20. Aaron Hermanson on December 9, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    I love "that dude diffidently doesn’t have a gun bags", I have been looking for a good one.

  21. Brandon Roe on December 9, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    Jade released a statement saying that she was being pressured and that he harassed several of his employees. Pulled down his public apology and is threatening to sue. The fact that this channel is providing misinformation on this subject and supporting sexual harassment in the industry is an embarrassment to the industry. Unsubscribing now.

  22. Randy Monger on December 9, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Lmao how many people got covid from shot show 2020 seems like everyone

  23. Jim Wilberforce on December 9, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    I subscribed 3:30mins in, immediately after "ships with everything except the alcohol, because government."

  24. Some Sasquatch With Dial Up on December 9, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Taran is a Epstein style dirtbag… he knew what he was doing when he hired her at 16… fucking weirdo.

  25. geoh7777 on December 9, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    9:53 "… look past the 2A traitor’s past of Ruger …"
    Not recommended. Why look past the treachery of someone who deserves to have his neck stretched about three inches?

  26. Dj Project on December 9, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    Dude, look like shit, get well soon. Take a nice long nap and try some Emergenc vitamin C.

  27. duncanbrodie1 on December 9, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    Jesus that kick from Liddell was horrible.

  28. Mav Div on December 9, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    I guess your probably pulling that foot out of your mouth, after reading Jade Struck’s recent post

  29. Fallofmind on December 9, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Did Jade not come out and say it was true? She was being sexually harassed along with other girls including minors? Pretty sure she did.

  30. J Stenberg on December 9, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    When gun people who hate when libs attack the gun lifestyle, then attack others lifestyle: Hypocrites.

  31. John Greyman1776 on December 9, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Man it just clicked. Your the dude that gave me covid at shot. Thanks for almost killing me. Your buying 1st, 2nd and last round next year.

  32. Matt Ford on December 9, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    Was that just his live in gf, or an employee. He pays her right? Like $90,000 a year.

  33. Big Racer on December 9, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Very Cool review of the Shot Show, Liked!

  35. davidsirmons on December 9, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    Not bothered one bit by Taran’s video, since I actually like women.

  36. Eric Oakes on December 9, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    Aw man you got the Corona at the Shot Show too. I thought I was going to croak.

  37. davedisaster12 on December 9, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    "theres no way that dude has a gun…bag"

  38. Karl edgren on December 9, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    Taran Butler aka Hugh Hefner

  43. Ryan Vargas on December 9, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    “Check our all the new bacteria on this years gun! “ …”Sweet let me hold that one next”

  44. J Edwards on December 9, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    I would hope that Taran is still welcome at the show after the truth has come out on how Jade was lying thru her teeth. Really pathetic that people would ruin a man’s lively hood on false rumors and lies. Jade is 22 now and was in a relationship with Taran. Shame on her and all those that spread these terrible lies! Hope her career gets flushed. I know Taran well. He’s no more of a creep than any other guy. Jade is now living with another middle aged man. Hmmm… I suppose he’s a creep, too, lol. They were 2 dating adults that took a personal video… end of story.

  45. Andy Rey on December 9, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    Creepy as hell 🤦🏻‍♂️

  46. Russell Simpson on December 9, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    Jeremy at Dark Alliance Customs, did that Angstadt Arms

  47. Fit'n Fire on December 9, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    Get well brother!

  48. Indefinite on December 9, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    Just because you’d do it too doesn’t mean he’s not a piece of shit. It just means you are too.

  49. RecklessFables on December 9, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    Murdered-out Henrys are just not my thing. Not everything has to be tacticool.

  50. Interested Party on December 9, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    Calling out bad behavior isn’t “virtue signaling,” it’s just calling out bad behavior. Sexual-harassment is generally agreed to be bad behavior and is rightfully frowned upon.

    “Virtue signaling”, “social justice warrior” are labels that are not very well defined but are supposed to be automatically assumed to be bad things. If we take the terms at face value why would it be bad to be virtuous when virtue supposed to be a good thing? Why would being a warrior for justice, social or otherwise, be a bad thing? Wouldn’t those “I stand for the flag” T-shirts be virtue signaling?

    Also, how does one distinguish fake outrage from real outrage?
