James Hosting "Viral Update" - a Daily COVID-19 Gun News Program on AllOutdoor TV


While this isn't TFBTV news per se, we figured that our supporters would like to know that James is taking a temporary gig for the next few weeks covering daily gun news and firearm policy updates on the "Viral Update", a program on AllOutdoor TV. You can check out the 2-3 minute program every day on AllOutdoor TV here:  

Since the coverage is semi-political, this program won't be running on TFBTV, so you'll have to check AllOutdoor TV for the next few weeks for the daily program.

For your TFBTV Mailroom update, the long-awaited Mailroom 28 is going to be scheduled for Sunday, March 22. 

We will give Patreon and SubscribeStar supporters a sneak preview tomorrow morning. 

Stay safe-
TFBTV Gang

"So What's the Deal with Patreon?"

We get a lot of questions about why we can't post about gun giveaways or discount codes on Patreon from people who are unaware of their policies. TFBTV is still active on Patreon and dependent on Patreon support, so we are cautious to not violate Patreon guidelines or to be openly critical of Patreon. However, this video by Jon Patton of TGC explains why creators in this industry don't get to post certain content here, and why we have been looking to other platforms for viewer support. 

We had the exact same experience that TGC did in this video and we can vouch for the truth of the content in this TGC piece. While TGC decided to up and leave Patreon, TFB decided to comply with guidelines while opening other viewer support options that have less restrictive policies, like subscribestar.com/tfbtv

We figured this post would be the best way of explaining to everyone what "the deal with Patreon" is rather than individually responding to all of the emails.

Whether it's Patreon or not, we are incredibly thankful for your support. TFBTV can offer you completely unbiased, independent content only because of you. We don't have to shill for companies (James just shills for Glock for free...) or "shadow review" products that we receive without disclosing that we were paid for the review or that the product is from a sponsor. You'd be shocked with how common those practices are in this business. 

And yes, your rewards will track if you change platforms. We keep records. Just keep a personal record for your information, and we can go back and verify when you email [email protected] after you hit a reward tier. 

Finally, we are considering adding a $25 tier on Patreon and SubscribeStar because some of you have asked for a higher tier with additional personal rewards. What kind of rewards would you want to see at this tier? Monthly voicechat with James, DMs, Q&A sessions, exclusive videos - what would you want for a $25/mo. tier to be worth it to you? (No requests for skin-on-skin contact, DNA samples, or photographs that could constitute felonies in some southern U.S. states please).

No matter what, thank you. For some of you, Patreon is just easier to do, and that's fine. As a site, it also has the best back-end and technical features for creators. We have a relationship of mutual tolerance with the platform, and while the bulk of our patronage is coming from this site, we are dependent upon it if we want to maintain independent reviews and coverage.

Have you ever wondered which airports seize the most guns at TSA checkpoints and how many they take? James has, too. Here's a sneak preview of the answer before it runs on TFBTV. Was your local airport on here?

NOTE: Once the video is scheduled, it will not be viewable. This video will be running Tuesday, 2/11, so try to view on or before February 10.

Hey everyone!

So we hit 15,000 subscribers for TFBTV Show Time pretty quickly. We are excited for SHOT Show and gearing up to bring you all tons and tons of content - hopefully over 100 videos - to TFBTV Show Time. 

As a "thank you", James made this kinda weird list video. In this video, entitled " The 6 Hottest Guns of SHOT Show EVER", James talks about TFBTV's most popular SHOT Show videos from the past five SHOT Shows. The results surprised us, and James honestly had to look up at least one of these guns to see what it was.

Some fun facts:
- The # 1 and # 2 videos have more views than #s 3-6 combined.
- All of the videos are from 2017 or 2019. No videos from 2015, 2016, or 2018 were popular enough to be in the top 6.
- One contributor is responsible for half of the videos in the Top 6. (Hint: It isn't James.)

Thank you all so much for the support. There will be five members of TFBTV at SHOT Show (James, Brannon, Miles, Stephen C., and Joel) so if you are going, keep your eyes peeled for the squad.

You guys know what it is - TFBTV's annual reading of crappy YouTube comments. We also announced our monthly giveaway winners in this video. Note that some of you don't allow us to see your email addresses, so one of the winners has not been contacted (James R. H.). Please send me an email at [email protected] with your info so we can get your prize to you.

The gun choices for this month are:

 Glock 43X twotone (discontinued!)
CZP10c
Kimber Evo-9 Two Tone w/nightsights
Ruger LCRx Copperwash Cylinder

The winners get their pick. Priority goes to SubscribeStar patrons first, then tier level, then seniority.

I'll email BAG about the $100 gift card codes on Monday.

Thanks for the support, and happy holidays, everyone!
