TFB Podcast Roundup 119: The March 8th Roundup

You’ve seen him featured here before a couple of times on TFBTV but at SHOT Show 2024, Editor-in-Chief Pete was able to get an exclusive interview with famous Chicago rapper Twista and talk shop with him. Today Pete and Twista not only talk about some of their favorite guns and shooting disciplines, but Twista also explains what his gun organization – Gun Camp – does for the people of not just Chicago, but all of Illinois when it comes to self-defense, and the right to keep and bear arms. Twista also clues us into what first interested him in guns as a young kid, his reasons for getting his first gun later on in life, and how that led to him wanting to open up a completely free gun training academy for other people in his state. Please welcome Tiwsta to the show!

TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #107: What Is Gun Camp? Feat. Rapper Twista

Get ready to dial up the energy because we’ve got Twista in the hot seat in this episode of TFB’s Behind The Gun Podcast! A lifelong resident of the city of Chicago, Twista isn’t just a rapper, he’s an avid firearms enthusiast who has a passion specifically for handguns, and also for training others. Known for his lightning-fast flow and razor-sharp lyricism in the recording room, and even faster splits on the USPSA range, Twista wants to bring the fun back into firearms for the people of Illinois. That’s why we’re happy to have him on today to talk about SHOT Show 2024, and some of his favorite guns and shooting sports. We’ll also get a chance to hear him talk about how his early passion for firearms eventually led him to open up Gun Camp – a free firearms training facility where the people of Chicago can get the necessary training to acquire the infamous Illinois FOID card, as well as their concealed carry license. Today I think you’ll be surprised to hear just how much Twista loves his guns, and how much more enthusiastic he is about training others for self-defense. Please welcome Chicago Rapper Twista to the show!
