I have mentioned Utreon before, but it’s really relevant right now, as YouTube has gone on another ridiculous rampage against firearms content. The site continues to grow and improve, and it has a bunch of features that are actually better than YouTube and Patreon – something virtually no other alternative hosting site can claim.
Utreon is fundamentally a combination of independent video hosting and voluntary paid channel subscriptions (YouTube + Patreon). In a nutshell, its benefits are:
– Political & technological independence
– Based on transparency and fairness
– Solid featureset
– Real investor capital to allow it to build a sustainable model as it grows
– Not gun-specific
Utreon is still a small site, tiny compared to a behemoth like YouTube. But it continues to grow and improve, and it is a solid platform for creators to use and earn income on today as a backup or an alternative for a YouTube channel. The Utreon team is responsive and helpful, and they welcome our community of responsible firearms content creators. Try them out – what do you have to lose?
Disclosure: I have no financial stake in Utreon. I just want to see them continue to grow and succeed – they are the most successful refuge form YouTube that I have found.
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!
