  1. Hey Edwin I love your videos. You and Gasparito crack me up. I was wondering if you could explain to the audience what the numbers of calibers mean. You often show the difference but some ignoramous like me wonder what the numbers mean. Like 45-70 what does 45 mean and what does 70 mean? Thank you

  2. Edwin,

    I wish you could have been with us back in 2005 in Arizona. We were pushing tannerite charges we made to extreme limits. The last one we set off left a hole in the sand wash to drive a smart car into and it not be seen from 20 ft away. I really appreciate you guys making these videos. Our funds back then were limited so you doing the things we wished we could afford to do is great to see. I hope that you get out of California to a state that allows you to have more fun with toys that you can own and shoot while being legal. Keep pushing the envelope with explosive targets. Good to see videos like yours and Matt’s from Demolition Ranch.

  3. Hey Edwin, you are crazy and I really enjoy your videos. I worry sometimes that you will be hurt or worse. I mean the “oxygen bottle in the safe” thing surprised me as well. I had no idea that it would have done what it did. Your guardian angel was with you guys on that shoot. Anyway, you guys make me laugh along with you as you do your crazy stuff. LOL, and please be safe.

    I am a retired Air Force member and support the 2A as you. I like the fact you wear our colors on your hat and shirt. I’m proud to be an American and I know you are too. Would want you at my side in a fox hole if it ever came to that. As Spock says, “Live Long and Prosper”

  4. Edwin, I enjoy all your videos, both shooting and cooking. How do you clean and keep you cast iron pan in such good-looking shape?

  5. What up, Ed and funny Mexican dude! Your videos are the goods. Just watched the bowling ball episode. How far did they fly?

  6. I wonder why a guy who clearly has a Love for American guns and bombs, chooses to live in the Socialist Republic of California?

    1. Edwin is also an Iranian decent so that explains it. Not a true American…his family fled Iran in 1996 cause they were rich fkrs there!

      1. Oh shut the f up. He’s as American as the rest of us. He didn’t choose to be born where he was. And HEY, does it look like he’s trying to run back there any time soon? Didn’t think so. Learn to accept and live with the other colors that are on our flag other than WHITE. Don’t like what I gotta say then go and cry about it to Oprah.

  7. Laws permitting you to own guns with riders/limitations is one thing. But when the right to bear arms is enshrined in the constitution, it has a different meaning all together !

  9. Very entertaining…reminds me of the days we used to go to the dump and shoot different calibers all-day long

    I love watching your videos, not only because you make it look like you are having a blast. Also because civilians cannot own hand guns here in Canada, I can just have fun watching u

  11. Edwin and gasparito make me smile while watching shooting tests. Sometimes a really good outloud laugh! I really appreciate Edwin’s simplicity. Thank you for the good time. ( Laurent, France, working in japan )
