One thing you always hear in the gun community is “One day I’ll get a suppressor”. I hear all of my buddies and guys I shoot with say this on a daily basis. Everybody wants one but lots of people aren’t willing to go through the steps it takes to get one because of all the stigma around how difficult they are to obtain. While they do require some paperwork on your end and a little bit of patience, they are still extremely easy to get.
One thing I enjoy about our showroom is that we have suppressors in stock for the locals to look at and purchase. Almost all of our employees own a suppressor and have been through the process. So they are all equipped with the correct information to hold your hand and walk you through the process if needed. The crazy thing though, is even though there are a large number of guys who will never own one, the number of guys who do own them and keep buying more keeps the suppressor market in a pretty high demand.
I would say suppressor manufacturers are just as busy/backed up as ammo and firearm manufacturers. Back a few years ago you could hop onto SilencerShop and order just about any suppressor you wanted. They even probably had a sale or a rebate on it. Everything was competitively priced and easy to get. Now that things have changed you don’t really see that kind of stuff happening anymore.
We are here to change that. This week for our showroom guys, we put several cans from a couple different manufacturers on sale! We want to keep this momentum going and keep people buying them and showing their support for suppressors. While we agree that the NFA should not exist, the best way to get it gone is to inform as many people as possible and to put NFA items into the hands of as many people as possible. When the stigma that Suppressors are for hitmen and James Bond is fully gone and old men aren’t afraid of the scary black rifles with hush tubes on the end has stopped, we will start to normalize the use of them and change and inform the community about how great and useful they are.
While we have these cans on sale, stop in and talk to our knowledgeable staff and consider finally taking that plunge into the NFA world. We are able to answer any questions you might have and also be able to let you handle and look at any can we have down in the showroom. Hope to see many of you down there this week!
