I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!

    wow, glad to see the Guatemalan police getting better weapons. Last time I was there they were carrying old and rusty looking shotguns.

    The reason why guatemalan forces use mostly israelian weapons is because neither americans nor europeans sell weapons to us anymore due, law enforcement agencies are the only allowed to carry automatic weapons in the country and that is why private security agencies use shotguns. I´d sell a kidney for a concealment permit for carrying a tavor rifle, i can only carry handguns, shotguns and non automatic rifles. that sucks.!
