TFB has only been in the podcast game for a short time now but in that time both Pete and I have had the chance to talk to some really amazing people. We kicked off the TFB Behind The Gun Podcast with the goal of bringing industry professionals, CEOs, and other great gun people right to you in an easy listening format. We are fast approaching finishing our 50th episode which means nearly a full year of podcasts down the barrel for TFB. Anyway, today I’ll be recapping some of my favorite episodes from last year, and perhaps there might be a few episodes in there that you guys missed that you might find interesting to listen to as we get closer to ringing in the new year. Hope you all had a great Christmas and Happy New Year!

Today on the podcast we have a special guest – Dave Matheny owner of Silencer Shop. Frequent listeners will know that Silencer Shop has been a strong supporter of the podcast and we’re extremely pleased to be able to have Dave on the show today. Dave wasn’t always in the firearms business, instead, Dave was working as a computer programmer at the time he purchased his first suppressor and like many things in life, this started him down the path to where he is today. Driven by a desire to give customers a one-stop shop for silencer purchases, Silencer Shop was born. For more information on how to buy a silencer, visit silencershop.com
