Welcome to TFB Podcast Roundup 41. By now, some of you will have already heard our recent podcast conducted with TFB Writer Vladimir Onokoy. Once again I’d like to thank Vlad for sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience with all of us and also encourage all of you firearms nerds out there to give it a listen as I think it demonstrates a very unique evolution of a foreign firearms industry that normally doesn’t get a lot of attention. In addition to that podcast featured further down in this article, we’ve also got a few CCW-oriented podcasts surrounding some decisions you have to make for yourself when it comes to carrying concealed. I’d really like to hear your thoughts on those down in the comments with regards to how you carry (modified, not modified, big handgun or small handgun, etc). Finally, we’ve got some very good information on the differences between the M16, M4, and AR-15 from the Vortex Nation Podcast and another short episode from them about the use of binoculars with eyeglasses. I don’t wear eyeglasses myself but I’ve got lots of friends who do and this was a pretty eye-opening episode for me (pun definitely intended). Enjoy this week’s episodes everybody!

TFB Podcast Roundup 41: Talking with TFB’s Vlad, and CCW Gun Choices
Length: 20 Minutes
Eyeglass wearers use binoculars. That’s no secret, and a big reason our binoculars feature high-quality twist-up eyecups. But are there other things a person may need to consider? In this listener request, we grab Mr. Mike McDowell to take this topic on through his lens (pun intended).
As always, we want to hear your feedback! Let us know if there are any topics you’d like covered on the Vortex Nation™ podcast by asking us on Instagram @vortexnationpodcast
Like I said before, I don’t wear eyeglasses but I’ve always wondered if the effect that an additional pair of lenses of any type would be when looking through a magnified optic (binoculars or otherwise). If you wear eyeglasses let us know what your experiences have been and what optics you’ve found that have the most forgiving design to accommodate your glasses.

Today we go go deep with Tony Merkel of The Confessionals Podcast. After a day of shooting guns we decided to bring Tony on the podcast to discuss Tony’s history with guns, training and giving advice that we’ve learned along the way, southern hospitality, Vols for life, and then the podcast takes a turn. If you’ve ever listened to Tony’s podcast then you’ll understand the path this episode took… Hope you enjoy and thanks for watching!!

In this episode, the guys talk about pretty much what you’d expect from the title. This is a subject that I’ve actually gone back and forth on many times over the years and I’ve gradually settled somewhere in the middle when it comes to a vast majority of my concealed carry guns. I do carry with an optic most of the time now but I generally don’t mess with the trigger or any of the other controls. The only modifications I tend to make now are flush-fit increased capacity magazines and aftermarket night sights. What about you?

Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk 04.03.22 Hour 1
I’ll be headed off to Gunsite for a training course here in the next couple of weeks and this will be my first trip there. I’m extremely excited and hearing Tom talk about the place is just making me look forward to it more! In regards to the subject of the podcast, I’m still in the camp of training with the gun you carry as I think it gives you the best type of training on a one-to-one scale.

Tactical firearm names can be a proverbial alphabet and numerical soup. We hear their nomenclatures all the time, but what are the major differentiating features setting them apart from one another. In this episode of the Vortex Nation™ Podcast, we grab Vortex Edge® instructor, Mike Griffin, to break down a few of the most popular models.

Today on the TFB B-Side Podcast we have TFB Writer Vladimir Onokoy. Vladimir is an expert on small arms from across the world but takes particular interest in firearms outside the united states. Vladimir has spent many years working in different countries as a security contractor, firearms instructor, consultant, and armorer. Most of you who read TFB will know him for his top-tier coverage of the unknown history of the Kalashnakov rifle and detailed and timely coverage of various foreign (non-US) firearms expos like IDEF DEFEXPO, DES, and WDS just to name a few. Please welcome Vladimir to the program as he talks about his extensive experience working with the Pakistani firearms industry and its two very different sectors of firearms manufacturing.
