Australia is an amazing country for many reasons. Aside from nearly every living thing in the island nation trying to kill you, it is also full of interesting people and firearms history. History nerds will no doubt know that firearms were a large part of Australian culture for many years up until the mid-90s when a devastating attack caused a severe reaction from the country’s government and almost overnight Australian firearms ownership was abruptly curtailed. Despite the incorrect assumption that Australian’s can’t own firearms, there happens to be a fairly vibrant and dedicated firearms community within the country and I recently had the opportunity to speak with one of our Patreon and Subscribe Star supporters (known as Jobeeeeee on the TFB Discord Chat) about the joys, and hurdles of being a firearms owner in Australia. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that things may not be as bleak as it seems for our foreign friends and today I hope I can share that same sentiment with our listeners on the TFB B-Side Podcast.

TFB B-Side Podcast: What It’s Like to Be a Gun Owner in Australia
Today on the podcast we have a special guest from down under (Australia). A long-time supporter of the channel and one of the few firearms enthusiasts I know in Australia, Jobeeeeee (as he is called on the TFB Discord) has been an invaluable resource when it comes to the firearms industry in Australia. Today Jobeeeeee and I discuss what it’s like to be a firearms owner in Australia, how gun culture in Australia is different than in the United States, and also what Jobeeeeee is looking forward to as far as new firearms purchases and acquisitions.
If you’d like to hear more from Jobeeeeee or ask him some pointed questions, feel free to join our Discord server and give him a ping. The TFB Discord channel is free to join, however, access to special chats and channels as well as access to giveaways, patches, and special TFB/TFBTV meetups can be accessed by becoming a Patreon or Subscribe Star member.

If you’ve said that buying a silencer is too expensive, too long of a wait, or that the paperwork is too confusing, you’re not alone. Buying a silencer is a big deal, and we don’t take it lightly either! But it’s the easiest it’s ever been!
