TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #69: Nick Chen's Ass Fiasco feat. Brad w/ BFG

A lot of you will remember a couple of months back Nick C’s ass suffered quite a traumatic range event. Many lessons were learned that day, most notably, not to violate basic range safety rules. The biggest takeaway for me from that day was just the sheer value of simple training. That’s why today we’ve brought on both TFB’s Nick C as well as Brad Gilpin from Blue Force Gear to talk about the accident and the specific training that allowed all of us to respond to the injury quickly, efficiently, and without panic. Brad Gilpin is the Director of Medical Programming at Blue Force Gear and is a prior law enforcement professional who has served at both the state and federal levels. He was a founding member of the USBP BORSTAR unit serving as Assistant Team Leader / Team Medic and has been involved in advocating tactical medicine skills for LEOs since long before it was cool to do so.

The Mag Shack – Thousands of Factory Original and Aftermarket Mags

Let’s face it, magazines are a hot-button issue for a number of reasons, and not all of them have to do with the legality or even their capacity. A lot of times magazines can become infamous or famous simply because of their availability, or lack thereof. One notable example is the current availability of FN FAL magazines. 12-15 years ago you could find them on nearly every firearm, gear, or gun classified ad for pretty cheap, probably along with a bunch of ammunition the guy bought with the gun. These days FAL magazines are quite expensive for surplus models and a lot of them are probably banged up and close to the end of their life if not past it. This is why I’m happy to see another competitor in the magazine retailer market – The Mag Shack. The Mag Shack stocks and sells thousands of OEM factory and aftermarket magazines for virtually every type of gun currently being produced, as well as firearms that are no longer produced or are very niche in nature.

TFB Review: MODTAC U-RAC (Universal Rail Attach Coupler)

Thankfully, suppressor use and ownership have become more and more common in recent years. As shooters become more aware of the passive dangers involved with shooting, like lead poisoning and hearing loss, steps are being taken to reduce health hazards. Suppressors are probably the most effective tool we have against hearing loss. If you didn’t hear that last sentence, it might be time to pick one up! However, silencers (or suppressors, use whichever you want, nobody cares) have some drawbacks. The primary problem is that they get very hot. This means mirage during precision shooting. It also means some very hot pants during rifle-to-pistol transitions. MODTAC, a company local to me in Colorado, makes rigid suppressor shields to mitigate both of these issues. They have a few models but today we’re looking at the MODTAC U-RAC.

TFB Weekly Web Deals 46: Hop Right into these Easter Weekend Deals

Welcome to TFB Weekly Web Deals 46! I hope everyone had a nice pleasant Easter weekend and were not only able to get the family out for some nice outdoor activities but were also able to get in some trigger time. One of the coolest fun and most relaxed shooting sports I’ve come across in the last couple of years has been Egg Shoots. An Egg Shoot will vary depending on the local club or match director but the basic premise is simple – Grab a bunch of 22LR rifles and some eggs and start blasting them for points during a timed relay. While the activity still sometimes uses real eggs, with the number of shooters that show up to these events it’s more common these days to see steel or paper targets used instead to reduce both cost and waste. If you want to try out one of these activities but are afraid you won’t be able to find one after Easter, you’re in luck – Egg Shoots are conducted year-round at a lot of different shooting clubs. However, before you head out to play, you might want to stock up on a few supplies for the event. We’ll feature some of those today in TFB Weekly Web Deals 46!

NEW Strike Industries Spare Magazine Holder for SIG P320

My concealed carry holster includes a space for a spare magazine. My battle belt has pouches for carrying two or three spare magazines. Having spares readily available allows me to continue defending myself or shredding paper, but what if you aren’t wearing all of your gear. A bump in the night is usually greeted in the ultimate urban gear; pajamas. Unless you wear tactical pajamas, a way to carry a spare (that doesn’t get sweaty) could be a huge force multiplier. Thanks to Strike Industries, those using their SIG P320 for defense have a new option for carrying an extra mag. This is the Spare Magazine Holder for SIG SAUER P320.

If you happen to miss that article, be sure to check out the link here. This week, I wanted to take a closer look at some of the things I carry every day when I wear shorts in the summer. When the weather starts to get hot outside, the last thing you want to do is start fatiguing with a large framed firearm rubbing against your side. Certain people will say they do carry a full size in the summer and that’s perfectly fine but for the vast majority of people, it can become challenging. Let’s take a closer look at some must-have items for summer carry.
