New website for cowboy guns
« on: March 26, 2020, 05:18:52 am »
Hi everyone. I'm Mike Beliveau. I think it is safe to say that most people these days know me for my Duelist1954 YouTube channel where I shoot a wide variety of historical firearms at poor old Evil Roy.

I think it is less well known that I've been a gun-writer for various books and magazines for over 30 years. In that time, I've been the Black Powder Contributing Editor for "Guns of the Old West" magazine, I've been the Reloading Contributing Editor for "Combat Handguns" magazine and I've been the Muzzleloading Field Editor for the annual "Gun Digest" book. And I've written many articles for "Muzzleloader", "American Frontiersman", "Backwoodsman" and other magazines.

The reason I'm writing this post is to let you know about a new project I started a few months ago.

I'm proud of the Duelist1954 YouTube channel. We have over 60,000 subscribers, and I intend to keep that going as long as I'm breathing. But, video isn't the perfect medium for everything. For a long time I've wanted to bring you content in other forms, that will complement the videos.

At the beginning of the year I started working on a concept to develop a website where I could present information of shooting historical firearms in a multimedia environment.

I wanted this site to be full of information in formats that you would enjoy using. I wanted to provide links to my YouTube video library as well as having, a section where I could present you with my 30-plus year library of magazine articles.  In addition to previously published work I wanted the site to have a photo and video illustrated blog, where I could present you with original articles that you wouldn't find anywhere else.

I hired a design team, and put them to work, and the result is, I think, pretty darned good.

I made the site live about a week ago, and since then I've been loading content. Every day I'll be adding more. I really think that you, my fellow black powder shooters will love it

In fact, I'm making a huge bet that you will. I have spent several thousand dollars on this project. I don't have sponsors, and you won't see advertising. I have a merchandise store, selling Teeshirts and mugs. I'm counting on those sales to fund the website.

I hope you'll take a minute and visit the site, and check out the content. If you like it, check back in every week, and you'll see new stuff with every visit.

Thanks for reading this. Here's a link to the website:

Thanks for sharing Mike. I for one, hate YouTube, and rarely watch anything there. Good luck, and congratulations on the new site. I'll pop in and check it out.

Thank you Mike!

I have been reading your writing efforts for many years, and was lamenting the fact that you had gone
exclusively into the utube method. 

Looking forward to seeing your new multimedia, especially if it uses text for "thinking content" and video or stills
as supplemental exposition.
