TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #50: Catching Up with Miles V.

    TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #49: Catching Up with Miles V.

    Longtime readers and viewers of TFB and TFBTV will know Miles V fairly well. Miles is most well known for covering a lot of older firearms, their history, how they were used, as well as who they were used by. Miles is also fairly well known for just how well-traveled he is and has brought us some of the best coverage of foreign firearms markets, industries, and cultures available on the web. Miles is the co-creator of the Silah Report, which is a blog and intelligence network that researches and reports on firearms in the Middle East and North African regions of the globe. Miles used to be a frequent contributor to TFBTV and has also written for TFB, Small Arms Review, Small Arms Defense Journal, RECOIL Magazine, and many other online and print firearms media. It’s been a few years since we’ve had Miles on the podcast so I thought it would be good for us to get caught up and see where he’s been and what he has been up to the last year or so. In today’s episode, Miles gives us an insider’s perspective on the War in Ukraine including what kind of arms and gear fighters have access to and the general state of the conflict. Please welcome Miles back to TFB’s Behind The Gun Podcast!

    On today’s episode of the TFB Behind the Gun Podcast, we’ve brought back Miles V formerly of TFBTV. Miles is a retired combat Marine infantryman who spends a lot of his time traveling the world and being helpful in any way he can. Usually, this means Miles is attached to some sort of charity organization that helps train citizens of war-torn areas with life-saving medical techniques, as well as providing relief efforts. Most recently Miles’ adventures have brought him to the War in Ukraine that has been going on for the better part of 2022. Today Miles shares with us some of his experiences, thoughts, and reactions about things he’s seen, done, and experienced in the now war-torn country of Ukraine. Everything from the types of arms and equipment that both sides are using to the general attitude of the people involved in the conflict. Please welcome Miles V. once again to the TFB Behind The Gun Podcast.
