The year 2020 has been difficult for many of us. I am glad to get some good news and share with you. The ranges have been packed with new gun owners. Most look like me. It is unbelievable.
Fear is still behind the sales but it aint the first time.
What is the good news?
I am happy to announce that I will be a brand ambassador for the world’s largest firearm silencer manufacturer, SilencerCo. The company based in West Valley, UT is the nation’s leading designer and manufacturer of suppressors. SilencerCo is dedicated to creating products that will improve sound reduction levels, durability and longevity, form and function, ease of use and maintenance in ways never thought of or achieved.
I’m excited because I get to share my journey with you through social media.
I used to think that silencers were only for the rich. Some people think silencers are only for bad guys in the movies. And although the government has made it tough to get a suppressor you can own one legally. In the upcoming videos and blog post, I am going to be sharing the 5W’s (Why, who, where, when, and What) of suppressors from my friends at SilencerCo. The one in the video is an Osprey model that is on my Gen 3 Glock 17. My review and demos are not going to be from a tech guy perspective. We will talk tech but I am not geeking out on it and pretending to be an engineer or tinkerer. This will be from a regular guy, gun enthusiast, law abiding suburban gun owner like you.
There are some cool things about its design. I hope to share who made the thing. Why you should get one or two. How it can help you. How to get one. When they were created. And stuff that you won’t hear anywhere else. You’ll see my flubs and mistakes. I plan to share the journey with you so you can start off smarter.
Unfortunately, if you live in the District of Columbia, California, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, and the Rhode Island you can’t own one. You can get one is you are a legally eligible to purchase a firearm in your state of residence, able to pass a BATFE background check and are at least 21 years of age you can purchase from a dealer.
They are called cans, mufflers, silencers and suppressors.
How they work is simple.
- Instead of exiting directly from the muzzle, propellant gases first enter the silencer’s expansion chamber, losing some of their energy.
- Pressure continues to divert and slow within the baffles while heat dissipates, allowing the projectile to exit before the majority of the gas.
- As a result, the report of the shot is suppressed to a hearing-safe level and the de-corking effect, or BANG!, is mitigated.
As I learn, I’ll share the details with you here or on Silencerco.com so you can get the truth about silencers.
