Welcome to TFB Podcast Roundup 52! There is certainly a lot going on in the legislative arm of the firearms world these days and I hope that most of you are at least staying informed on what’s along the horizon for us as American gun owners. The summer months have also brought what seems like a whole new scene of gun owners and self-defense-oriented products and content, most likely because of a recent incident where a concealed carrier managed to stop a criminal from murdering many people at a shopping mall in Indiana. No doubt there will probably be plenty of talks analyzing the various information surrounding the incident and we’ll be sure to include them in this edition of the TFB Podcast Roundup. However, what is most interesting to me about the whole event is that it opened up a new discussion about what it means to be “accurate” with a pistol. Don’t know what I mean? Check out the Dicken Drill, go and shoot it and let us know what kind of results you get!

TFB Podcast Roundup 52: Old Guests and New Podcasts
Anthony Imperato, Founder and CEO of one of the country’s leading firearms manufacturers, recently made a guest appearance on the Talking Lead podcast to discuss his time at the helm of Henry Repeating Arms and his 40 years in the firearms industry.
The 90-minute episode (#445) features an intimate conversation between Imperato and host Marty “Lefty” Holder, with topics spanning from the humble beginnings of Henry Repeating Arms to the company’s current 25th anniversary $1,000,000 charity pledge to more personal dialogue about the challenges and issues facing Americans today. As a successful business owner with a decades-long family background in the gun business, Imperato contributes a unique point of view, and listeners will appreciate the transparency from one of America’s leading firearm company executives.
Holder says, “In my more than ten years of interviewing people, Anthony Imperato must rank in my top five of the most pleasantly unexpected fun people to interview. His awareness and understanding of current social, political, and economic events keep him and his business ahead of the curve and in tune with his customers and employees.” Holder continues, “Anthony’s outlook on life, leadership, and generosity explains why Henry Repeating Arms is one of the most popular and respected firearms manufacturers in the USA.”
In this first episode we’ll be getting to know the hosts. With over 45 years of writing and photographing the outdoors, Ron Spomer is an avid Hunter and Conservationist. Kevin Wilson is an Outdoor writer and Professional outfitter/guide and owner of Alberta Hunting Adventures in Canada.

Ron talks about how he grew up in small town America on farms, his love for the outdoors and his first writing assignments. Kevin shares his childhood stories about Alberta, Canada and his love of wild spaces and nature. Dean Capuano talks about his family and their love of the outdoors and fishing and how he started at SWAROVSKI OPTIK in Rhode Island.

A good guy with a gun stopped a potential mass murder in a mall in Indiana. Believe it or not, not everyone is happy about that fact. We will explore the lessons during our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters.
During our Duracoat Finished Firearm segment, Professor Paul poses a question about an official SOTG camo. For our Brownells Bullet Points for this week we will consider medical gear. When was the last time you inventoried your medical supplies?
Finally, the communist tyrants in New York State are not about to be told by the Supreme Court that they have to follow the law. Instead, the leftist bullies in NY are planning to make it even more difficult to get a permission slip to carry a firearm than before.
Frank Proctor is a former Special Forces operator as well as a grand master competitor in USPSA (United States Practical Shooting Association). Frank is a well know firearms instructor who also has the insight to create various products that have helped him as well as other shooters work better with their firearms.

In today’s episode of the TFB B-Side Podcast, TFBTV Presenter Hop and Luke talk a bit about some recent experiences in New Hampshire, as well as a bunch of other unrelated topics. Hop and Luke were fortunate enough to meet up with the SIG Sauer crew for the grand opening ceremony of the new SIG Sauer Experience center which is SIG’s flagship gun range, gun store, museum, and training center essentially replacing the old SIG Pro Shop and Training facilities. The catch with the new SIG Experience Center is that it’s open to the public and will be catering to the needs of the local firearms owners of New Hampshire, as well as anyone who wants to swing by and take a look at the many firearms available for purchase and for rent, and maybe even take a relaxing sit in the new Club 1751 Lounge.
