TFB Podcast Roundup 63: Are Expensive Guns Worth It?

by Luke C.

Welcome to TFB Podcast Roundup 63. Firearms are in a lot of ways just like cars. There are a lot of them out there, a lot of people love them, some people use them as tools while others use them as toys and there are a million different places in-between where both firearms and automobile customers can find themselves when it comes to the types of these items that they buy. Generally speaking, I am a utilitarian and I am more than willing to pay a couple of extra hundred bones for a firearm that fits my specific task just like without going overboard in terms of price and features. Basically what I’m getting at is that if I’m paying extra money for something, I want to get extra use out of it in some shape form, or fashion. For others, the extra money could be better spent on durability, or maybe even aesthetic characteristics. On the other hand, some people just like to collect firearms purely for their novelty. No matter how you like your guns, everyone does indeed have a price and that’s why our first episode this week for Podcast Roundup 63 will be from Tom Gresham’s Gun talk as he brings on Mike Mihalski from Sons of Liberty Gun Works to talk about their quite expensive AR-15 rifles that customers swear by. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s selection of gun-podcast listening.

TFB Behind the Gun Podcast: Cerakote Talk with TFB Staff Writer Lucas D

Length: 39 Minutes

On Today’s episode of the TFB Behind the Gun Podcast, we have TFB Staff Writer Lucas D. I met Lucas a number of years back during a trip out to Oregon, the home of many great optics companies, while I was there I had the chance to chat with Lucas who has a ton of experience on both the retail firearm sales side of things as well as a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field of custom Cerakote jobs. If you’ve ever been interested in learning about the Cerakote process, how consistent results are achieved, and just how much work goes into making a repeatable product on a large scale, Lucas is here to explain the ins and outs of the entire process from start to finish. In addition, we talk a bit about how Lucas was hired on as a writer for TFB (hint: basically the same way as every other writer), as well as some of his opinions on the competitive shooting world that he’s invested in, as well as his thoughts on how his view on firearms has changed during his time within the industry as a reviewer of firearms. Please welcome TFB Staff Writer Lucas D to the show!

    Are expensive guns worth it, it depends on the QC of the manufacturer. I enjoyed the afternoon shooting a Les Bare 9mm 1911 6" slide\barrel at steel 10 yds, 20 yds and 50 yds. Yes, for this gun & manufacturer a big yes! Next time at the range, perhaps a Wilson CQB 9mm and a vintage S&W Model 41!
