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!

    @Clodboyon, the last thing I've ever wanted was an even heavier G3. Is issued a HK416 these days, but even that thing has too many rails and gadgets to be called "light".

    Thanks for the linky. I should sell ad space if this keeps up. Your avalanche was bigger than ones from Tam.

      @j t bolt j, I think on average a Tamalanche would be bigger than a TFBalanche ;)
