Here's a link to the whole playlist (I think):

Thanks for sharing the video, Max. When I first watched it, I thought that was a Beretta lying on the table. I thought, "Damn, this man knows how to keep his table in line."

Glad you enjoyed them. I apologize about the lousy quality. Looks like a microphone is on the list for purchase - and when I can afford it, a new video recorder or camera.
