TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #124: What is SOWW? With Roy Hill

Today’s podcast we’re bringing on a new friend of mine Roy Hill, to talk about a very honorable organization called SOWW. The Special Operations Wounded Warriors is a charity that specifically focuses on members of the armed services who are active with or have served with the special operations community. Roy Hill has had a lot of experience within the firearms world and while he now sits on the board of SOWW, at one point in time he worked for Brownells, which is where I happened to meet him. After hearing about what he does with SOWW today, I thought it was important we had him on to talk about what exactly SOWW does with the charitable donations that it receives.

TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #122: Calvin's Hot Takes from Lynx 2024

Today’s guest is one of my good friends and a longtime friend of TFBTV from way back in the Alex C days of the channel. We’re of course talking about Calvin Truong aka Phúc Long or Firepower United on his YouTube channel. While most of what Calvin does is mostly or entirely satirical, Cavin is in reality a very impressive and accomplished shooter not just here in the US but internationally as well. Calvin and I have participated together in Finnish Brutality in the past and today he’s here to talk about his experiences at Lynx Brutality 2024 in Slovenia. While the tales that Calvin has for us today are hilarious, they’re also cautionary tales for anyone who is interested in attending these types of events. So have a seat, buckle up, and knock back a drink or two as Calvin and I catch up over Lynx Brutality 2024.

TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #121: Ryan from Silencer Central

Silencers have been the talk of the NFA town for the last couple of months. This is largely due to the massive wait times we saw before seemingly disappearing overnight leaving most of us with much more manageable e-form 4 processing times of about a week or less. This has sent ripples through the suppressor and firearm world leading to a bum-rush on all sorts of muzzle devices and suppressor manufacturers desperately trying to keep up with the increased demand that this rare NFA win has given the gun community. We’ve brought on Silencer Central CEO Brandon Maddox in the past to talk shop with Pete, but this time we’re bringing on Ryan H with Sielcner Central to talk about what he’s seen behind the scenes when it comes to selling suppressors in this new era. Today we’ll talk about all things silencers, how easy it is now to complete the process, and also talk a bit about Silencer Central’s own line of suppressors in the Banish series.

TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #118: Behind the Scenes with TFBTV's Adam M

The TFBTV has grown and shrunk over the years but in the last couple of years, we’ve really refined our methods and approaches to each and every show we tackle. Today on the podcast we’ll be speaking with one of the unsung heroes of the TFBTV crew, Adam M. Unlike myself, James, Hop, or even Ryan, Adam isn’t your typical firearm nerd and is rather more interested in the practical application of firearms for self-defense. Coming from a background in the television industry, Adam has been instrumental in helping the crew get high-quality editing done on the road so that you guys get the latest up-to-date news from the show floor. Today we’ll get to learn a bit more about one of the auxiliary members of the crew, what kinds of guns he’s into, and what he’s looking forward to most from his upcoming trip to Thunder Ranch.

NRAAM 2024 is all wrapped up and in the books. This year we didn’t see a whole bunch of groundbreaking releases or entirely new products but instead, we saw a lot of revival product lines.

TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #116: A Crash Course in Meprolight History with Eric and Jordan

Today I’ve brought on Eric and Jordan from Meprolight to talk a little bit about their company’s history not just here in the US, but where they started back in Israel. Like the US, Israel has a lot of domestically produced firearms, optics, and ordnance which they sometimes export to other countries. Meprolight along with IWI are just some of these companies and they’ve both recently put a lot more effort into producing products for regular consumers instead of just for military outfits. Today we’ll get a bit of that story in the form of a short history lesson from Eric and Jordan. Please give them both a warm welcome to the show!

TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #109: The Return of Brandon Maddox of Silencer Central

Like last week’s episode, this week’s episode jumps right back into the hot topic of suppressors and this time we’re talking about more than just wishful thinking about getting rid of the NFA, and keeping wait times at a reasonable interval. This week we’ve brought back a favorite guest of ours, CEO Brandon Maddox of Silencer Central, to talk about all things NFA. While Brandon has the same wish as us about getting rid of the NFA, he does have some pretty poignant thoughts about what would happen should the NFA disappear and what that might look like for firearm owners and hunters on a state level. He also goes into depth with Pete about the recent surge of interest in suppressors and how that might be adversely affecting the average quality of suppressors being put out onto the market today.

TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #108: Chris with Yankee Hill Machine (YHM)

Suppressors are one of Pete’s favorite subjects and that’s why it’s an honor to finally present one of the best episodes recorded at SHOT Show 2024 featuring Chris with Yankee Hill Machine. Many of you know that ATF Form 4 times has taken a drastic dip in the time it takes them to be processed. A lot of speculation has been posed throughout the last couple of weeks on whether or not this pace can keep up, or if this is just a temporary boost spurred on by the government and or the pressure from the growing civilian suppressor market. Looking back at this episode recorded during the 2024 SHOT Show, it’s interesting to hear what Pete and Chris have to say about the current state of the suppressor market, and where they think it’s going this year.

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.

TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #105: The Future of DIY Firearms with Open Source Defense

This week we’re back with another episode from SHOT Show 2024 featuring the crew from Open Source Defense (OSD). OSD is dedicated to promoting and defending gun rights without the political side of things – something we can fully get behind here at TFB. They prioritize an online-first approach, recognizing the importance of building and spreading a pro-gun culture through digital platforms. The group emphasizes the value of good principles, even if they lead to disagreement, and stresses the significance of making hard decisions based on clear, honest, and decisive values. They describe themselves as “digital natives,” believing that effective advocacy for gun rights must occur online –  something they’ll talk about today in their interview with Pete. The group strives to be likable and approachable, aiming to persuade through positive engagement rather than confrontation, which is all too common in the gun industry. Despite their friendly approach, they are unwavering in their commitment to making principled arguments in favor of expansive gun rights, considering it a fundamental human right. Today on the show the crew will talk about the crucial role that 3D-printed firearms will play in the coming years, as well as the legality of electronically triggered firearms and why the ATF may be targeting this specific feature that has become quite popular in the DIY firearm world.

TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #104: Andrew Wright with SureFire

The crew of Surefire LLC made their annual appearance at SHOT Show 2024 giving the TFB and TFBTV crews plenty of time to cover some of their latest products. While James covered the recent release of the Stiletto Pro II, I was able to get a closer look at the compact XR1 and XR2 rechargeable weaponlights that are finally being released for sale in just a few months. Pete meanwhile had a nice casual conversation about all of that and more with Andrew Wright who has been helping us get the latest details on all SureFire products for years now.

TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #103: Under Armour & The Tactical Games with Nick Thayer

Longtime readers of the blog and frequent listeners of the podcast will know that I’m personally a huge fan of shooting competitions. While I have my roots in Steel Challenge, in the 15 years that I’ve been competitively shooting I’ve expanded my portfolio of successfully completed matches from trap shooting to obscure and insane competitions like Finnish and Woodland Brutality. This year is already chalking up to be one of my busiest years for competition and while at SHOT Show 2024, I might have just talked my way into probably the toughest competition yet – The Tactical Games. At the show, I was able to have an in-person and on-video interview with the guy who runs the Tactical Games, Nick Thayer. Nick Thayer was happy to be on the podcast not just to talk about the competition and how you can get into it, but also about the unique relationship that Under Armour has with the Tactical Games, and how their support of the sport is a good indicator of things to come in the shooting sports space. Personally, I had always assumed that Under Armour was an “anti-gun” company, but as you’ll hear in today’s episode, that attitude is slowly making its way out the door at the fitness clothing mogul, and that could mean great things for more than just the shooting sports industry.
