* WebVideo/ForgottenWeapons host Ian Mc Collum knows a lot about guns. Every episode he goes into detail about the history of the gun and disassembles it, with interesting facts about its inner workings, but also the reasons why the gun was forgotten. His knowledge on guns is so broad he's called [[FanNickname gun Jesus by his fans]]

* Many, MANY gun enthusiasts exist on Youtube, such as Steve Reichart, Hickok45, Colion Noir (who is African American), Chris Cheng (who is Chinese - American and openly gay), Gabby Franco, Michelle Viscusi (both female), and the people at FPSRUSSIA (who are Russian, obviously).
** Contrary to what many fans want to believe, FPSRussia, better known as Kyle Myers, is far from being Russian. He merely plays the character of "Dmitri", but he is an American residing in the state of Georgia. He has himself debunked the myth in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsfaqLN6-iA this video]].

* A little about EagleLand for those from other parts of the world: the United States is quite an outlier in the developing world for gun ownership, but not because guns are universal in the US. There are approximately enough guns in the US for each person in the nation to have a gun, but only 30% of US households have any at all. About 9% of households have 5 or more guns. As a result, gun ownership follows a skewed distribution, with owning no guns being far more common, owning a single gun being next most common, and then the numbers going down quickly. However, those who own many guns considerably skew the per-capita ownership of guns upward. The US is a nation where gun ownership is not uncommon, but the per capita number of firearms is heavily influenced by the gun nuts.
