What mostly interested me in this video was the camera used :P but the guy looks to be a pretty proficient pistolero for sure!

Nice editing but obviously he's not as good.


...Midnight has never been shot out in one of his videos.

Apart from using his forearm to brace his stronghand, I just see a pistol player?

MA may be a bit full of himself sometimes, but seems like a very cool guy.

The "run over the car" move was pretty excellent.

Awesome video. No real need to bring up akimbo assassin.

Yeaaaaah, because we all post videos of ourselves getting shot up??
If you edit it out of a full game, you're a tool, but noone puts themselves getting blasted into an edited video that I have seen, unless the blast was the actual subject of the video.

I'm at work, so I can't watch this vid til I get home but I've seen Angel's vids and I have this to say about them:

There's a reason they have trained play by play people and analysts at a football game. Watching a football game on tv would be incomprehensible to most without them.
PB vids can be the same.

So I would have 0% respect for any opinion given on Angel's play, based on his vids, by someone who wasn't an experienced pistol player. Without a couple of years worth of pistol play, a person is talking out his behind plain and simple.

As one of the world's most experienced pistol players(such a big ole clubs of dozens!), I say he's one of the best I've ever seen. I've seen his vids, watched him play and played against him.
He shot me, though I'm going for a rematch as we were having a contest of who could break the most paint in a 2 minute game.

I've played literally hundreds and hundreds of one on ones in my 27 years of pistol play.
In all of those combined, I've been shot out by 3 people:
Weltman, Dirtnap and Angel.


Now you guys have me going to look for this other thread to see what the petty hipsters are up to now.

EDIT: Saw that thread, it should have been deleted. Nice dose of racism.
Were it still open I would say, "you guys do understand that in the pacific ocean there's a country called Japan? Do you understand that ninjitsu and that quote are part of a hundreds of years old tradition? That anyone who automatically paints someone who quotes it as a joke and a laughing stock is a full-on bigot?"
George Bernard Shaw had it right:
Quote:
BRITANNUS (shocked): Caesar: this is not proper.
THEODOTUS (outraged): How!
CAESAR (recovering his self-possession):**Pardon him. Theodotus: he is a barbarian, and thinks that the customs of his tribe and island are the laws of nature.*

Well at least it doesn't suffer from vertical video syndrome or have a dubstep soundtrack. Overall it was ok. As a fan of Awolnation, they have other good songs besides Sail people.

Hey some of my best video work is me getting blasted. lol
I'm not a big fan of over-edited clip montages over full (or nearly full) games. It's kind of like the difference between Bear Grylls and Les Stroud. When all someone posts is the highlights it comes off as disingenuous.

As an aside I wouldn't recommend commenting on previously locked threads, it's usually surefire way to get yet another thread locked.

yeah it's kind of opened a can of worms, for instance I feel (now) like replying to the reply to the replies re: the locked thread.

He had some good moves, but to me it felt like most of that video was posing/staged shots interrupted on occasion by some actual pistol play. I'd like to see less edited versions, not because I feel like there's any faking or disingenuity going on, but because it seems like a lot of the pistol clips are so brief there's not really any context to what's going on.

I think that's why Antonio's stuff has done so well, he edits, but just enough to cut out the crap while still letting the viewer see the setup, the move, and the result. And in his defense I'm pretty sure he's gotten hit a few times in his vids over the past few months. Not a lot, but like Smith said, who really focuses on how many times they get eliminated in their own videos?

This guy certainly has potential, but I don't think the vid had enough in it to tell anyone to "move over"...
