    In this episode of TFBTV, @James Reeves brings you episode one of “Thunder Rants”. This series captures bits and pieces of knowledge dropped by Clint Smith while James was visiting Clint at Thunder Ranch in Oregon. You’ve got gun knowledge, life knowledge, and Clint’s opinions on horses and submarines.

    Thunder Ranch and in partnership with Aero Precision, EOTech, Ballistic Advantage, Brownells, and Doubletap Ammunition. This episode is a discussion of what the ultimate urban rifle should be, taking in input from Thunder Ranch, Aero, and Ballistic Advantage as to how you should equip the ultimate rifle for modern day urban defense.

    Clint and Heidi Smith were generous enough to let TFBTV use Thunder Ranch for free to film this series in order to get the word out – at no cost to any of our viewers – on how to select and use an urban rifle.
