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 www.patreon.com/tfbtv. 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 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSLlDdeEsSI).
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).

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!
