Welcome to TFB Podcast Roundup 40. The firearms industry is quite an interesting place to me. Before I ever started writing for TFB, I basically only ever looked at firearms through the lens of self-defense, hunting, and mag dumping into the trash at the local clay pit. Working for TFB has greatly expanded the world of firearms to me and gun-oriented podcasts have expanded it even further. Books are great reference material but with most people these days having busy schedules and reading during commutes being highly looked down upon, podcasts just fill a gap that a formal class or presentation would normally fill for those looking to seek after the knowledge of others. With all that being said, this week’s podcast roundup will feature a wide variety of subject matter ranging from the updated ATF eForms process, guiding guests at your local gun range, a good talk about pocket pistols, and of course, another chance to check out our homegrown podcast, where we talk with Richie with Expansion Industries about their brand new primer production facility, focused on getting primers back in the hands of handloaders.

Welcome to Gun Funny, Episode 241. Today I’m going to chat with Mike aka MrGunsNGear, discuss evidence of the ATF lying to Congress, highlight a new PCC from B&T, and talk about Elon Musk’s bid to take over Twitter.
I’m your host, Ava Flanell.
Mike (MrGunsNGear) is always at the forefront of ATF news and I often enjoy his summarizing of the latest news affecting gun owners as it happens. Mike is always very thorough, upfront, and honest about what he knows for sure and what he can only speculate but I’ve found that historically he’s often been spot on with his analysis. In addition to the ATF discussion, he and Ava also talk a good bit about some other recent happenings both inside and outside the firearms world.

We’ve talked at length here at TFB about the new eForms process that the ATF is using in an attempt to dig themselves out of the huge backlog of Form 4 and Form 1 submissions. So far it looks like it is turning out to be a big benefit for those who want suppressors faster and I hope it’s a trend that continues.

Welcome back to Episode 334 of the God and Guns Podcast . I’m your host, Troy. And I’m your other host Doug. We use this podcast to talk about God, guns, and the responsible Christian gun owners’ interests. On this week’s show we will be talking about Pocket Pistols..
Pocket pistols might have taken a back seat to micro-compact 9mm handguns but they’re still out there and today Troy and Doug talk about their use in modern times and how they compare to other options available to concealed carriers.

Expansion Industries is probably better known for their brand of training ammunition Expansion Ammunition. However, as you’ll discover today, Expansion Industries is setting out to do more than just produce high-quality range and training ammunition. Our guest and one of the three principal owners of the family-owned and operated Expansion Industries Richie gives us the inside scoop today on Expansion Industries’ new primer production facility that aims to get out primers to hand loaders like you and I.
In today’s episode, Richie goes over the company’s history, company culture, and shares with us some of the struggles and hurdles they’ve had to overcome to help get this new facility up and running to give the reloading market what it wants. Please welcome Richie Smissen from Expansion Industries to the program.
