Miles V

Former Infantry Marine, and currently studying at Indiana University. I’ve written for Small Arms Review and Small Arms Defense Journal, although writing for TFB has probably been the most rewording experience I’ve had while writing in the world of small arms. It’s the people and interactions that really motivate me to try to give you the best written post and filmed TFBTV segment I can put out. Specifically, I’m very interested in small arms history, development, and Military/LE usage within the Middle East, and Central Asia.

If you want to reach out, let me know about an error I’ve made, something I can add to the post, or just talk guns and much Grunts love naps, hit me up at miles@tfb.tv
