8.6 BLK Subsonic | Episode 68: Faxon Blog & Podcast

David Stark of Discreet Ballistics joins the show to talk about all things 8.6 Blackout and Subsonic Ammunition. From DiscreetBallistics.com: Shooting subsonic ammunition is significantly quieter than shooting supersonic ammunition. Simple fluid dynamics tells us that if a projectile travels at a velocity below the speed of sound, the sonic crack normally heard with supersonic projectiles will not be present. When used in combination with a sound suppressor, subsonic ammunition significantly reduces a firearm's sound signature to hearing-safe levels. Subsonic ammunition has become increasingly popular with today's civilian, law enforcement and military shooters.

Four Season Fighters | Episode 66: Faxon Blog & Podcast

SAVING LIVES ONE SEASON AT A TIME This week on the show, Dustin and Emily take some time to chat with Zach Ames, President & Co-Founder of the non-profit organization, Four Season Fighters. Zach is a career firefighter with Bothell Fire in Bothell, Washington. Prior to becoming a firefighter, Zach served 6 1/2 years in the U.S. Army where he did two tours: Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2010 and Operation Enduring Freedom in 2012. Zach’s hobbies include hunting, fishing, golfing, camping, motocross, and pretty much anything that involves being outdoors. Zach’s favorite activity is spending time with his wife, Bri, and three daughters, Emersyn, Sailym, and Olive. From the Four Season Fighters website: Mission Helping veterans, firefighters, and police officers whose lives have been altered permanently because of the sacrifices they made while serving our country and communities, making what they once thought impossible, possible. Goals When we started out on this journey, it wasn’t only because we wanted to help those who have served our country and communities, it was because we had to help those who have served. Everyday men and women put their lives on the line to protect us. Some make the ultimate sacrifice; some make sacrifices that end up changing how they live their lives forever — things most of us take for granted daily. Our goal is to repay those individuals by helping them pursue physical activities they once thought were out of reach — either because they didn’t have the will, or because they didn’t think they were physically able.
