TFB Behind the Gun #120: The Iraqi Police At Lynx Brutality 2024 w/ Bloke On The Range

Today we’ve brought back Mike aka Bloke On The Range to talk to us about his experiences at Lynx Brutality 2024. As you guys know, I’m a huge fan of these types of firearm competitions and so over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be hearing from several of the competitors who attended this year’s match to get their unique perspectives on this unique competition. Mike as you guys know used to present quite often on TFBTV and typically covers more historical firearms pieces on his own channel. As such, just like at last year’s Finnish Brutality 2023, Mike is bringing the heat in the form of a fresh new historical “LARP” – this time as an Iraqi National Policeman. Please welcome Mike Burns back to the Show!

TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #120: The Iraqi Police At Lynx Brutality 2024 w/ Bloke On The Range

Lynx Brutality 2024 is an international two-gun competition similar to other “Brutality” events found across the globe. Inspired and derived from two gun action challenge matches organized by Karl Kasarda and Ian McCollum of InRnageTV, Lynx Brutality is the Slovenian variant of the match that invites all competitors to demonstrate both their shooting skill and their grit through a grueling two-day, 10-stage match. Competitors at Lynx Brutality of course need a whole lot of gear if they’re to participate in the Armored division and one such competitor is one we’ve spoken to before on the TFB Podcast, Mr. Mike Burns aka Bloke On The Range. While Mike has contributed to TFB and TFBTV in the past, these days Mike focuses entirely on his own channel where he primarily talks about historical weapons and their practical application. Mike has some interesting thoughts on his setup this year which was a “LARP” of an Iraqi National Policeman. Today we’ll get his full gear breakdown as well as what some of his best and worst moments were from Lynx Brutality 2024. Please welcome Bloke On The Range back to the program!
