Welcome to TFB’s Podcast Roundup 5. This week we’re getting a chance to hear from somewhat of a legend within the YouTube gun community: Dugan Ashley. For those of you who don’t know or don’t remember, Dugan Ashley was a pioneer of the “GunTuber” variant along with a few notable others. As far back as 2012, I remember tuning in to Dugan’s channel CarniK Con (Carnivorous Kinetic Concepts) which featured both a heavy dose of satire, humor and legitimate information/review. Sadly, Dugan deleted his channel along with all of his videos but there are still some fans out there dedicating to archiving his videos and keeping them online for others to enjoy. Dugan occasionally likes to drop into podcasts and random YouTube videos. This week I’m sharing a dated episode from 2016 to help fans of Dugan’s get a clearer view of where he went and what he’s been up to since his sudden disappearance.

TFB Podcast Roundup 5: Home Delivery Silencers, and the Elusive Dugan Ashley
Subjects: Dugan Ashley’s interest in guns and his sudden disappearance from YouTube
Dugan ended his popular firearms YouTube channel, Carnik Con, in March 2015. Since then people have been wondering if he is going to start up Carnik Con again, or if it is done for good. I decided to ask him myself.
In this podcast interview Dugan talks how he got into guns, his time in the Army, Carnik Con, SEO and video work, and his plans for SHOT Show 2016. I would like to thank Dugan for taking the time to do the interview and for his service in the United States Army.
Subjects: Direct to home suppressor delivery
If you’re interested in getting a suppressor delivered to you and not interested in dealing with all of the crazy paperwork that is involved in buying one then you’ll want to talk to the guys over at Silencer Central.

How would you like to have a suppressor delivered directly to your doorstep? Silencer Central can do that! Gun Talk’s Ryan Gresham and Silencer Central’s Brandon Maddox discuss hos Silencer Central can produce and deliver suppressors to your front door.
