Welcome back to the Talking Lead Podcast episode TLP 238.  This episode we have special guests John Aaron Jones with Thermal Defense Solutions, Ian Strimbeck with Runenation, Adam Kraut with The Gun Collective and Darrel with Tactical Kinetics.

The Legal Brief Guy & The Barrel Guys:

Tactical Kinetics, aka "The Barrel Guys", is bringing a carbon fiber barrel to the market.  Weighing in at 8 ounces with an 850 degree plus fail heating point where most others crap out around 650 degrees.

Adam Kraut talks to us about his upcoming run for the National Rifle Association board.  You can find out more about Adam and why you should vote for him at

RUNENATION LLC & Thermal Defense Solutions:

Ian Strimbeck joins Lefty to talk about his new company Runenation LLC.   Ian is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps.  During that time he attained experience in combat and security operations and held every position in a fire team from SAW Gunner to Team Leader.  Runenation is a consulting and education company specializing in the constant growth of the multidisciplinary tactician.

Wrapping up this episode we have John Aaron Jones representing Thermal Defense Solutions.  TDS uses the physics-based approach of making suppressors through the use of advanced 3D modeling and simulation tools. By using this approach, TDS can not only predict, but manipulate the speed and direction of expanding gases throughout a suppressor.  The result is suppressors with complex designs that are not always feasible to produce through traditional manufacturing methods.
