In this episode, Eric and Chad discuss their ideal rifle setup and all the features that go into “The Perfect Rifle.”
Slingin’ Rik is back on the podcast, and he’s brought his beloved, hunt-worn, Remington 870. If he cut a notch in the stock of this thing every time he killed a turkey, you’d be left with a mighty fine toothpick. It’s the only shotgun he’s owned for most of his life. Listen for the nostalgic backstory of his most cherished firearm. Do you have a gun like this?– Intro – The Remington Model 870 – Cantilever Mount and Sighting In – Erik’s Hunting History with the 870 – Out with the Old, in with The New? – Future Plans – Choke Tube and Ammo – Red Dots for Turkeys – Closing Thoughts As always, we want to hear your feedback!

On this episode, Seth and Matt are joined in the studio by Hornady Sponsored Shooter, Dillen Easley. The guys talk about Dillen’s younger years; specifically, how he got into the shooting sports. They also discuss one of Dillen’s favorite matches, the Hornady Zombies in the Heartland 3-Gun Match and how it differs from other matches across the country. They end the show by talking about the many different ways to find matches to shoot across the country and other ways to get involved in the shooting sports. Dillen is a great Hornady ambassador and it was great having him on our podcast, we hope you enjoy the show!
For avid hunters Tana Grenda and her brother Trevor Schneider, day eight into a planned two-week bear hunt in the remote mountains of Alaska nearly turned deadly. When Trevor’s rifle jammed after taking several shots at a large brown bear from 450 yards, the wounded animal sensed their location and quickly made its approach. Unable to fix the rifle jam, both Tana and Trevor literally feared for their lives as the ferocious bear came charging at them full bore. Luckily, Trevor had his trusty Taurus Raging Hunter™ revolver with him as backup and took the bear down with several well-placed shots before it could land its vicious attack. Jessie and KC sit down with Tana and Trevor as they recount their incredible, awe-inspiring story of survival in the Alaskan wilderness.
We discuss Jared’s cop match, Tom’s every growing feeling of being right too early and the removal of USPSA president Yee-Min Lin and what you can do about it. We have a form letter you can send to Board@
Dear Members of the Board,
I am writing to express my concern about the removal of President Yee-Min Lin’s R.O. certification by NROI. It troubles me that an elected official who won a clear majority of the vote could be removed from office due to a certification issue under the sole discretion of DNROI. Mr. Lin has worked hundreds of matches a trait that a volunteer organization should value. There appear to be contradicting issues that make this seem like an issue of politics rather than good ethical judgment.
I have the following questions for you:
1. What was the reason for the removal of his certification?
2. Will you impartially hear his appeal before May 1st?
3. How many RO certifications have been removed in the past five years?
4. Why does Mel Rodero still hold an elected office, while Mr. Lin has been removed?
5. What bylaw gives the BOD the ability to make an exception for one of their own?
I implore the members of the board to reinstate Mr. Lin and revise the bylaws for RO decertification for board members to prevent abuse from DNROI.
In this episode of TFB’s Behind The Gun Podcast, we’ve brought back fellow TFB writer and my good friend Nic L to talk about his recent reintroduction into the competition shooting world. I’m of the belief that competition shooting is one of the best ways to stay not only competent and familiar with your firearms, but also to test out any new gear, guns, or ammunition you roll into your EDC and home defense setup. Today Nic and I share some personal stories and chat about our own experiences with competition shooting, and how it has not only enriched our personal lives, but given our reviews some much-needed variety when it comes to torture testing and finding out what new products in the firearms market are really capable of.
That’s it for this week, folks. I hope you enjoyed some or all of these episodes or at least have something to listen to for the rest of your week’s commutes. Let us know what you find interesting about these podcasts and we’ll catch you again next week for another roundup of great firearms podcasts!
