TFB’s Top 10 Most Popular Articles Of 2017

    As 2017 draws to a close, we here at TFB wanted to take a look at ten of the most popular articles posted in the past year. Our dedicated staff of writers does a great job of tracking breaking news, product releases and industry events before other outlets. And it’s been a busy year – from the Sig Sauer P320 MHS award, CMP 1911s, Gen 5 GLOCKs and ATF Rulemaking Proposals – the last 12 months have kept us busy. And who knows, there’s still a few days left to squeeze in a BREAKING headline or two.
