Personal firearm defense video clips are now available on 5Min, Blip.TV, Google Video and AOL Video

The Personal Defense Network™ (PDN) celebrated its one year anniversary on January 16th with 842,000 video views online. Launched in January 2010, the website is positioned as a no-nonsense gathering place for conscientious civilians, law enforcement personnel, and military operators interested in defending every aspect of their lives.

Consumers can’t seem to get enough online video. According to Nielsen’s August 2010 report of How People Watch: A Global Nielsen Consumer Report, 70% of global online consumers watch online videos. “The Internet has become a leading destination for consumers to find information and entertainment, and there is a growing demand from consumers to have that content in video format,” said personal defense industry leader and Personal Defense Network’s Managing Editor.

Since its inception a year ago, PDN has become the leading destination of personal firearm defense video tips and techniques. PDN has experienced high video viewership numbers from the video content posted to its website and YouTube channel since its launch. In May 2010, PDN expanded its distribution channels to include 5min,, Google Video and AOL Video which greatly increased viewership numbers. “We have even expanded the number of videos on our Facebook page allowing PDN members the opportunity to view personal firearm defense content in the social media of their choice,” said Pincus.

While PDN’s video content is focused on providing instructional firearm tips and techniques, the company is now using its video expertise to help manufacturers showcase their products. “We see video as a great way to convey a product’s qualities that simply can’t be done through print media. Our video-based product reviews help present products in a medium that consumers want and help to differentiate PDN from our competitors,” said Pincus. “We anticipate that the popularity of our video-based product reviews will continue to drive visitors to our website and strengthen our brand as a leading destination for personal firearm defense information.”
