Welcome to TFB Podcast Roundup 7. Everyone seems to be riled up this week. With a lot of current events going on both domestically and worldwide, the gun world has been buzzing with a lot of activity on the legislative front as well as the product front. I had a chance this week to go back through an older podcast or two during a fairly lengthy 16-hour drive and I have to say that I never quite thought things could change as drastically as they could have since just June of last year. Both the attitude and the general sense of urgency have never been quite this high within the gun world and I think that as a community, gun people tend to be at their best when they are under a little bit of pressure. So sit back, crank up the volume and enjoy some of the selections from this week’s TFB Podcast Roundup – I promise it’s not all doom and gloom.

TFB Podcast Roundup 7: History, Gun Laws and The Sturmgewehr
Length: 175 Minutes
Subjects: Gun laws and rights
When it comes to podcasts, the Joe Rogan podcast is one of the most well known and also covers a wide variety of topics and personalities from across pop culture and the web. Back in June of 2020, Joe Rogan had on Mr. Colion Noir who is one of the biggest names in the online space when it comes to guns. In this episode of the JRE Podcasts, Joe and Colion discuss his YouTube Channel, his stance on gun rights and gun legislation as well as a few other odds and ends I think you’ll find interesting. If you haven’t heard this episode of the podcasts I’d highly recommend it.
Length: 32 Minutes
Subjects: The German developed MP-44/StG 44 Sturmgewehr
Larry Vickers is another big name in the gun industry and he recently started his own podcast. Larry likes to go in-depth into various firearms as well as some good tales about combat operations. This specific episode covers the venerated MP-44 (also known as the StG 44) developed by Hugo Schmeisser. Larry gives everyone an analysis of the rifle as well as how it has influenced and possibly changed the course of firearms development throughout the 20th century.
Length: 23 Minutes
Subjects: The Taliban confiscation of civilian firearms following the United State’s withdrawal from Afghanistan
Many of you will be familiar with Eric and Chad’s popular YouTube series Gun Gripes. If you’re not familiar with it, then it is more or less 30 minutes of these two fellas voicing their concerns and or discontent with certain things within or surrounding the gun industry. No doubt last week has given both of them a reason to complain about what is going on currently in Afghanistan and I think what they have to say will resonate with a lot of you.
Length: 40 Minutes
Subjects: Nathan Gorenstein’s new book “The Guns of John Moses Browning”
The History Unloaded podcast is fast becoming one of my favorite go-to podcasts for just driving around. This week, Danny and Ashley talk about the recently released book “The Guns of John Moses Browning” and speak with its author Nathan Gorenstein. The first question that is brought up is “Why did it take so long for someone to write this book?” Later in the episode, they also talk about how the realm of firearms research continues to change as we progress further and further into the future of modernized firearms. This is a great episode for all of you history buffs out there.
Length: 25 Minutes
Subjects: Tips and tricks for tactics that you can put to use in urban survival, escape & evasion, and self-defense.
Bullets, beans & band-aids baby! Oh yeah! If you love AR’s, Glocks and freedom, then the Modern Combat & Survival podcast is for you. Each week, Jeff Anderson and his rag-tag team of hairy-backed mooks bring you “no b.s.” tips, tricks, and tactics you can put to use right away from the world’s top experts on tactical firearms training, urban survival, escape & evasion, and close quarters combat self defense.
This one intrigued me simply because it’s something that a lot of people don’t talk about or are unwilling to talk about. A good listen if you’ve got 30 minutes or so to listen on how to orient yourself and respond in specific situations.
Length: 15 Minutes
Subjects: TFB Staff Writer Rusty S talks with TFB Editor in Chief about machine guns, the Apocalypse, and his personal firearms journey and experience.
Rusty has been with TFB for about 6 years now and it’s safe to say he’s an internal part of the TFB family. Rusty draws from his experience as a rancher, hunter, and former competitive shooter to review various types of rifles ranging from some of the most well-known lever actions to some more obscure weaponry better suited to suppressive fire rather than home on the range.
In this episode, Pete and Rusty talk about what Rusty’s weapon of choice would be in the event of the apocalypse (and I’m sure that his answer won’t surprise long-time readers) as well as how Rusty came to be a TFB writer.
That’s all we’ve got for this week. If you’ve come across any good or new podcasts in the gun sphere, feel free to let us know down below or if you have any comments about this week’s lineup of episodes. Thanks as always for reading and listening to TFB.
