Welcome to TFB Podcast Roundup 54! Part of why I like the podcast medium so much is that it gives the direct sources of information a chance to speak directly with the intended audience, rather than have them filtered and editorialized through media sources. Although the information in the podcast still might be curated for the audience’s sake, I still think it gives us better insight into who these people are, what they believe in, and how they intend to tackle problems or obstacles within their respective professions. Today we’ve got a couple of episodes from some people I’ve actually met in person and even some people who’ve been on TFB’s own podcasts in previous years. In addition to some more renowned names within the firearms industry, we’re also hearing from Faxon Firearms this week while they take on a deep dive into the new 8.6 BLK cartridge.

TFB Podcast Roundup 54: 8.6 BLK, Cody Wilson, & the FPC
Despite Ivan (Kit Badger) being a frequent presenter on TFBTV and someone that most of us here at TFB know personally, I still managed to miss this one from earlier in the year when Ivan got a chance to speak with Mike from Sons of Liberty Gun Works. SOLGW has gained a lot of traction over the last couple of years for its attention to detail when it comes to the firearms they produce. This interview and discussion between Ivan and Mike are a tiny peek into what goes on behind the scenes at Sons of Liberty Gun Works.
Dustin is joined by Faxon’s Director of Product Management, Jay Wilson, for a deep-dive into 8.6 BLK, Faxon Sentinel AR-10s, and some tips and insights for 8.6 Blackout enthusiasts.
I’m actually really glad this particular podcast episode came out because of the recent release (on 8/6 actually) of the new Faxon Sentinel AR-10 rifles. As with any new cartridge, there are always going to be tiny little bits of info, tips, and tricks that will make it run a certain way, and alter the experience you have when first getting into a fresh new cartridge. If you’ve already bought into the 8.6 BLK environment, this is a great episode for you to pick up.
Mat Best welcomes Adam Kraut of the Firearms Policy Coalition and Mike Mihalski from Sons of Liberty Gunworks to the show to discuss a wide array of 2nd Amendment and firearms topics. They discuss what the FPC is, recent Supreme Court decisions, and how you can make a difference.
If you’ve ever been curious about the FPC (Firearms Policy Coalition) what they do, what their motives are, and the progress they’ve made in regards to pro-2nd Amendment efforts, this is a great podcast for you and one I enjoyed listening to even though I’ve been a supporter for a very long time.
Tonight on Who Moved My Freedom I interview Cody Wilson, co-founder and CEO of Defense Distributed and the face of homemade “ghost guns” and the online maker community. Babyface P is also joining me tonight. To find out more about the new Ghost Gunner 3 general purpose CNC mill https://ghostgunner.net/
