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 #122: Calvin's Hot Takes from Lynx 2024

“This week on TFB's Behind the Gun Podcast we're bringing back Calvin from the YouTube channel and Instagram account Firepower United to talk about his experiences at Lynx Brutality 2024. Outside of his humorous and oftentimes polarizing posts and skits on social media, Calvin is actually an accomplished USPSA and IPSC shooter, having competed across the globe in a number of other competitions as well even if it's just for the fun of competing at a local match. Today Calvin and I will talk about some of what happened at this year's match, explore some of the pitfalls of not bringing your own tested guns and gear to a firearms competition, and discuss some of his thoughts on the types of targets you should be shooting during training for maximum efficiency. Please welcome Calvin from Firepower United to the show!
