    I started to watch a little of this out of curiosity and wound up sucked in and finishing it. You are about to see someone teach with complete mastery of the subject, an organized approach, and the sort of patience that frees the student to try an answer and be wrong without worrying about getting ridiculed. This gentleman is an excellent teacher.

    A quick google tells me that Pat McNamara was SpecOps for 22 years, with a lot of combat experience. He was a Green Beret and then Delta Force. He is very much the real deal, which you see in about two minutes. Much of what a Green Beret does involves teaching the people he is embedded with how to soldier, which encompasses many skills, and they teach them all.

    Anyhow, the subject is the M-4, the students are Army, and this guy is a straight genius in his field. It was a pleasure to watch, and I've never fired any rifle in the M16/M4 family. He's a pro.

    Oh, and for once, read the comments. Some fun in there.

    No offense, but John Wooden’s how to put on socks is one of the best things I have ever seen a teacher do.

    This guy is good for an average Joe, but a professional teacher would totally change this delivery.

    Lecturing for 18 minutes is not considered good teaching.

    Did he teach a sock and a sock then a shoe and a shoe, or a sock and a shoe, then a sock and a shoe?

    When you grow up as "Shoebooty," the sequence of socks and shoes is a first-world problem, as Archie disclosed to Meathead years later ...
