TFB Review: Cimarron Firearms 1875 Outlaw

This past winter I found myself rewatching many of the westerns that Netflix had on rotation. Movies including “High Plains Drifter” “3:10 to Yuma” and “The Power of the Dog” and these films really had me wanting a six-shooter of my own to play around with at the range some day. I reached out to Cimarron Firearms and asked if they would be willing to send me a review copy of their 1875 Outlaw in .357 and they were more than happy to send one my way.

TFB Review: The Maven S.3 - A More Flexible Way To Do Spotting Scopes

Spotting scopes are really handy tools for a variety of shooting disciplines. Whether you’re carrying one along for better target identification, or just trying to get a read on where your shots are going on long-distance targets, spotting scopes can help you and a friend fill in the missing important visual data for the next shot. Maven Optics makes their optics all over the world, including the United States. Their S series of optics including the Maven S.3 that we’re talking about today are assembled in San Diego, California from Japanese components and then shipped to the company’s headquarters in Lander, Wyoming for their final quality control inspection. What makes them a more budget-friendly brand is their “direct to consumer” business model which cuts out the retailer and therefore a significant portion of the added costs of sales. Today we’ll be checking out what I think is one of the more flexible options in the Maven spotting scope lineup - the Maven S.3A interchangeable lens spotting scope.

Concealed Carry Corner: Shooting With Your Offhand

Welcome back to another edition of Concealed Carry Corner. Last week, we talked about the good and bad aspects of Constitutional Carry. If you happened to miss that article, be sure to click the link here to check it out. This week, I wanted to talk about a real-life problem many of us run into when it comes to carrying over a long period of time. Whether you are injured or just find yourself in an odd situation, it can be tricky to have a good carry setup if something happens. Sometimes the best course of action is to learn how to shoot with both hands in order to be proficient. Some may not understand why it's important but there are a number of benefits to learning how to shoot offhand. Let's take a closer look at shooting with your offhand.

The Mounties Get Their Man

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police might not actually use horses that often, but they do keep a few around for ceremonial purposes (and also stomping the odd protester here and there). Another tradition the Mounties keep around is the Connaught Cup—and they’ve got a new winner for 2024. Corporal Pascal Boudreau from H Division (Nova Scotia) is the latest winner of the award for top shooter.

TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #121: Ryan from Silencer Central

Silencers have been the talk of the NFA town for the last couple of months. This is largely due to the massive wait times we saw before seemingly disappearing overnight leaving most of us with much more manageable e-form 4 processing times of about a week or less. This has sent ripples through the suppressor and firearm world leading to a bum-rush on all sorts of muzzle devices and suppressor manufacturers desperately trying to keep up with the increased demand that this rare NFA win has given the gun community. We’ve brought on Silencer Central CEO Brandon Maddox in the past to talk shop with Pete, but this time we’re bringing on Ryan H with Sielcner Central to talk about what he’s seen behind the scenes when it comes to selling suppressors in this new era. Today we’ll talk about all things silencers, how easy it is now to complete the process, and also talk a bit about Silencer Central’s own line of suppressors in the Banish series.
