Welcome to TFB Podcast Roundup 15. This week I wanted to feature a special podcast episode I recently listened to honoring the late JStark and the legacy he has left the gun world with. Although the 3D gun printing pioneer has left us, we can still appreciate what he did for the firearms community and 3D printers. I know personally, he inspired me to take a deeper look at the concept and in a way, he actually convinced me that 3D printed guns are indeed a viable and modernized way for us to secure our rights and access to arms. Also this week we have our very own Doug E who we featured on last week’s B-side podcast who talks with us about the grey man concept and how to conduct yourself when responding to an active shooting situation. We also have our friends over at the Studnet of the Gun Podcast talking about 350 Legend and also if Tasers as weapons in a response to the New York City banning the devices. Sit back, hit play, and roll into this week’s TFB Podcast roundup. Enjoy everybody.

TFB Podcast Roundup 15: An Ode To JStark and Self Defense Scenarios
Length: 31 Minutes
Subjects: JStark and 3D Printed firearms and their impact on the gun community
We believe that the ability to manufacture your own firearms is as fundamental a right as the ability to own them. Isaac talks a bit about the different categories of homebuilt guns, 3D printers, and some plans for the future.
Length: 34 Minutes
Subjects: Mark Jiles Joins the Handgun World Podcast to discuss their favorite handguns
This episode is some pretty easy listening and I quite enjoyed hearing their opinions on the current guns that they were shooting. Kind of gave me the same vibes I get when talking with the rest of the TFB crew as we don’t get to see each other that often and it’s always nice to catch up like this to see what everyone is getting their hands on.
This week one of my good friends, Mark Giles joined me in the Handgun World Mobile Studio to discuss what guns we are shooting, while going to a competition match.
Length: 50 Minutes
Subjects: The guys talk about eastern versus western rifles, the increasingly popular 350 Legend cartridge, and the recent controversy surrounding New York’s Taser ban.
During our Brownells Bullet Points segment, we will consider Eastern rifles versus Western rifles? When it comes to the new .350 Legend cartridge where does it fit? What is the difference between east and west when it comes to rifles?
Also, we have an SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters. We continue with our topic of being dangerous on demand and self-defense. The Second Amendment Foundation through the Firearms Policy Coalition has filed suit against New York City for their electronic subject control or “Taser” ban. Is a handheld electronic self-defense tool protected under the 2nd Amendment as “arms”?
Length: 66 Minutes
Subjects: My good friend Daniel Shaw and his guest Steve Tarani talk about Steve’s specialized training which focuses on awareness and how that plays a role in self-defense.
On this week’s episode of The Mag Life Podcast, Daniel is joined by the immensely knowledgeable, Steve Tarani. With decades in the defense, law enforcement, and intelligence communities, Steve is a highly-respected firearm, defensive tactics, bladed weapons, and personal protection instructor. As of late, Tarani has specialized in awareness-based training, having incorporated this into his training classes as well as his books.
Together, Daniel and Steve discuss the vital importance of soft skills versus hard skills, situational awareness training, and overcoming fear in a fight.
Length: 24 Minutes
Subjects: TFB Writers Doug E and Luke C discuss the concepts of the grey man and responding to an active shooting situation safely and responsibly
This week we’re hearing from Doug E, a writer at TFB. Doug has years of law enforcement experience as well as a lot of solid well-contemplated thoughts about how to respond to shootings and how to best be prepared for such a dramatic and rare event. On this episode of the TFB B-Side Podcast, Doug and I discuss the various situations you may find yourself in, how you can help law enforcement instead of hindering them, and also a couple good tips on how not to get shot in these types of situations should you find yourself in one. Doug and I also talk about the Grey Man concept, its validity in everyday situations and how perhaps the concept itself has been taken out of proportion and somewhat skewed by the onset of its coining. Don’t forget to check out Doug’s articles here at TFB and also follow him on Instagram.
