As it is obvious from the alias, he is a fan of AKs, but his channel is different from every other AK fan, because Brandon himself is a gun builder, and an SOT (Special Occupational Taxpayer), which means that he can also own full-auto machine guns. This makes for some entertaining content. 

Brandon also has segments like gun meme review, cursed gun images, and the darwin awards which are really fun. He also does educational videos in a segment named the whiteboard of knowledge. Being a builder, Brandon also works on some interesting and innovative projects, the most popular of which is easily the AK-50, which is an AK platform rifle, chambered in 50 BMJ. Link to the channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/BrandonHerrera
