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!

    Just imagine the guys in "Enemy at the Gate" would have had those. The movie would still not be over.

    Nah, cover is for concealing your position. Once your position is known people can easily flank you and hunt you down with a CQB auto carbine.

    Some of the best WWII snipers opted not to use a scope just for the extra concealment it gave them. (They didn't have to poke their head out as much)
