We’ve been a little busy over here, but I just wanted to give our readers a belated heads-up about my involvement in two episodes of Ultimate Weapons, which is a new show on The Military Channel, and a follow-on show to FutureWeapons (also written Future Weapons). The two episodes to which I contributed were “Close Quarter Battle (CQB)” on military and law enforcement close quarters battle weapons (CQB weapons) and “Sniper Rifle” on military sniper rifles.
It was a real pleasure to work on the show. The Ultimate Weapons production team was extremely professional and capable, and really did a fantastic job.
YouTube member “CBSproductions0” has uploaded the “Sniper Rifle” episode to YouTube in sections. Here they are:
Ultimate Weapons Sniper 1/5
Ultimate Weapons Sniper Rifle 2/5
Ultimate Weapons Sniper Rifle 3/5
Ultimate Weapons Sniper Rifle 4/5
Ultimate Weapons Sniper Rifle 5/5
And, YouTube member “Dilo22” has uploaded a video clip of the segment on the HK MP7A1 PDW to YouTube. However, the quality isn’t very good, since it’s actually a video clip of his television while the segment is playing. Even though the quality isn’t very good, you can still see and hear me in the clip. Here:
Ultimate Weapons – Close Quarter Battle #2: MP7
Hopefully, someone will upload a higher-quality version of the “CQB” episode, soon.
Anyway, we hope you enjoy watching the clips, and we recommend that you check out Ultimate Weapons when you get a chance. It’s an entertaining show.
