The TFB server is kicking on Discord. An invite to enter is here:

The chat is very easy to use, and it’s web based. No software needed on desktop, and the setup is minimal. Discord is simply a live chat room, just like the good ol’ AOL days, except we’re talking about guns instead of pretending to be a teenage girl to get attention. (That’s what you guys did on teen chat too, right?)

Patreon members get perks including Patreon-only chat rooms, contrast-color user names, and additional permissions in most of the rooms. Join at

Since we’ve had a lot of participation on the chat, we’ve decided to expand the server a bit for you.

New Channels

Since opening up the chat over the past few weeks, we’ve added several categories and channels. Now, the chat is organized as follows:

  • General Text Channels

We’ve been hitting 100 active users at peak times, so this chat’s popping. Swing in if you want to discuss guns, specific TFB articles, or anything at all.

NRA Annual Meeting Chat

We’ve also specifically dedicated a category to shows so you can discuss the products and events at the show. Accordingly, the NRAAM chat is now live for conversing new products from NRAAM. Feel free to make requests – go ahead and ask TFB staff on site to check out certain products that have not been covered or to visit certain booths.

See you on Discord-
