SPECIAL ARMORY   
Special Armory is a Cape Town based business that sells firearm accessories.

Their specialty is sourcing and supplying uncommon and hard-to-find magazines and spare parts, although they also stock magazines for most modern, popular firearms.
In particular they keep a good supply of various Vektor pistol spare parts and accessories, and often advertise spares for other obscure firearms.

This is a very useful resource for obtaining spare magazines for some of the older, more obscure firearms that are often listed on The Gun Trove.

SELF-DEFENSE

LUCKY GUNNER AMMO     
An interesting channel full of informative videos about guns, gear, self-defense and shooting techniques.
He is particularly knowledgeable about using revolvers for self-defense.

I’m Chris and I make our videos about guns and shooting. Most of them are about self-defense techniques and gear, but sometimes I do other shooting stuff just for fun.

We also have a blog with lots of shooting resources at http://www.luckygunner.com/lounge

TNOUTDOORS9  
The owner of this YouTube channel makes really objective and consistent defensive ammunition review videos for various calibers, using ballistic gel.

He is by no means a specialist in this field, but his findings and insights are still very interesting and valuable.
A helpful channel for someone trying to decide what type of defensive ammunition to carry.

ACTIVE SELF PROTECTION
A very interesting channel for those planning on carrying a firearm for self-defense.

Every single day we post a real defensive encounter caught on camera and perform an after-action report on it for lessons learned. We educate the public on what we see that works and what we see that doesn’t in real robberies, muggings, carjackings, and other defensive situations. Our approach is evidence-based, meaning we try hard not to have a pre-set dogma but to go where the actual evidence leads towards more positive outcomes for good people.
Our motto: cover your ASP! (that means your Attitude, Skills, and Plan)

FIREARM COLLECTING

FORGOTTEN WEAPONS  
A really great channel for those interested in obscure and historical firearms or firearm collecting.
Reviews on lots of locally produced firearms too.

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!

LIFESIZEPOTATO 
This is a channel of a private firearms collector in the USA who just has some really fantastic, interesting and rare firearms, and produces really good videos showcasing them.
A must for firearms collectors and enthusiasts.

I do review videos of rare, weird or exotic guns that I own. I also like to do shooting videos of them, which happen a bit more sporadically.

DEMOLITION RANCH  
This highly entertaining channel involves a vet with seemingly way too many guns and too much time on his hands, who gets up too all kinds of weird and fun firearm related shenanigans on his ranch.

Who doesn’t like trick shots?!?!

.22 Plinkster is a firearm enthusiast who specializes in shooting various .22 caliber firearms and performs many creative and entertaining trick shots with them.
