LIVE Chat Tonight with the New Editors of TFB: 6:30pm-7:30pm CST

    Tonight at 6:30 p.m. Central Standard Time, Tom R., the new head editor of The Firearm Blog, and James Reeves, the Executive Producer of TFBTV, will host a live Q&A session from a craphole dive bar in either the LGD or Irish Channel of New Orleans. The chat will be hosted on TFBTVs Patreon account at Managing editor Pete will be participating telephonically. The new editors of TFB will be glad to answer any question you may have, including:

    • The vision of the new editorial team;
    • What’s your favorite gun and/or pastry?
    • But does Tom R. accept Glock mags?
    • Why is TFBTV so much better than TFB?
    • What is Pete’s secret identity?
    • …and more.

    We’ll be answering questions LIVE until 7 p.m., but if the questions are still rolling in, we will extend it out to 7:30 p.m. CST.

    Patreon supporters will be able to ask live questions and see real-time responses. We will make the transcript public tomorrow morning so non-Patreon readers can see the whole Q&A.

    What is Patreon?

    Patreon is a website that allows viewers to support their favorite YouTube channels with a monthly pledge. TFBTV got on Patreon (like many gun channels) after YouTube de-monetized and re-categorized gun-related creators. Patreon allows TFBTV to pick up the post-demonetization financial slack.  To put it into perspective, TFBTV makes a third of the ad revenue it used to make when it had half as many subscribers, and 25 TFBTV videos have been permanently de-monetized, including the gnarly “Can You Shoot From a [Purple Velvet] Jacket Pocket” video (

    But this isn’t a charity drive: TFBTV gives back to its Patreon supporters through monthly giveaways, perks (e.g., this live chat with the eds), and reward tiers (three Patreon-only TFB patches that you can’t buy, including our writer’s patch and the secret patch).

    You can sign up for TFBTV’s Patreon here:

    In fact, we will do a giveaway tonight: The best question/comment will get a copy of their choice of any of Walt Kuleck’s excellent gun guide books (click here) as a “thank you” for participating.

    See you all tonight!
