TFB Podcast Roundup 41: Talking with TFB's Vlad, and CCW Gun Choices

Welcome to TFB Podcast Roundup 41. By now, some of you will have already heard our recent podcast conducted with TFB Writer Vladimir Onokoy. Once again I’d like to thank Vlad for sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience with all of us and also encourage all of you firearms nerds out there to give it a listen as I think it demonstrates a very unique evolution of a foreign firearms industry that normally doesn’t get a lot of attention. In addition to that podcast featured further down in this article, we’ve also got a few CCW-oriented podcasts surrounding some decisions you have to make for yourself when it comes to carrying concealed. I’d really like to hear your thoughts on those down in the comments with regards to how you carry (modified, not modified, big handgun or small handgun, etc). Finally, we’ve got some very good information on the differences between the M16, M4, and AR-15 from the Vortex Nation Podcast and another short episode from them about the use of binoculars with eyeglasses. I don’t wear eyeglasses myself but I’ve got lots of friends who do and this was a pretty eye-opening episode for me (pun definitely intended). Enjoy this week’s episodes everybody!

While Vladimir was in Pakistan, he had a chance to tour their extremely varied firearms manufacturing facilities and as a result, he has a strong grasp of the current situation of the Pakistani firearms industry. Today he’s going to share his insight, experience, and thoughts on Pakistani firearms, the places they come from, and what he thinks the Pakistani firearms industry is going to be getting into in the coming years.
