There's a push in the firearms community to pay tribute to Paul by increasing his YouTube subscriber count to over 1 million. If you aren't a subscriber, consider doing so.

Yeah; let's do that. I've been a subscriber for a while, but I know at least four people I can ask to subscribe.

I was looking up how to send Paul a message and notice he has hit one million subscribers. No reason to stop, though. I never looked at his stats and was amazed to see he has produced 407 videos. He has my prayers for the very best outcome.

Got a notice that Paul Harrell's channel had a new video. There is a a fundraiser T shirt sale link when you look up Paul's Youtubevideo by Roy (I think it's his brother) about interchangeability of 40 S&W in a 10mm firearm. I ordered a T-shirt for myself, but I am not soliciting anyone to do the same, just noting that it's there. I actually wish he had a direct money fundraiser, but I liked the shirt's design. Wishing him well and prayers for survival.

I watched the video earlier today, and other than mention of the t-shirt, Paul did not appear in the video at all. I wondered the last time we saw him, if that would be the last time ever. I just pray that he’s being kept comfortable, and that the fundraising really helps his family out.

Roy has some really big shoes to fill, and he’s not a natural as presenter like Paul is. I did appreciate though his attempt to mimic a Paul trademark where after the introduction to the topic, Paul would say something like "let’s see what the results say," and then turn his head to the side as if looking at something off camera. I do hope that Roy gets more comfortable with the role of presenter, and also that he gets help from the regular crew that worked with Paul…if for no other reason that the channel will likely start losing subscribers after Paul's death, right at the time when his family most needs the monetization that comes with high subscriber AND viewer numbers. It’d be cool if they can stay above a million subs.

Ray should be himself and not mimic Paul’s characteristics. I will continue to subscribe to the channel and hopefully Ray and his crew will continue to put out quality content like Paul did.

I think a cool fundraiser would be for the family to take all of Paul’s videos and offer them in DVD format.

I agree that Ray should be himself. I just appreciated his homage to his brother with that turn of the head. But that said, Ray does need to loosen up in front of the camera…although I imagine right now this must be difficult for him to do it given the situation.

It's pretty clear to me from Paul Harrell's introduction of his brother Roy, not Ray, that his time is short for making content on his channel if at all since he also stated in a subsequent video it could be his last appearance. I hope that he has more time than he thinks, but I wasn't expecting to see Paul in the latest video nor any near term postings. Still wishing him the very best outcome for treatment and praying for him and his family and friends. I, too, appreciated the homage to Paul with the turn of the head.
