Gear Review: TTAG’s Rimfire Suppressor Round-Up

Silencer Shop added me to their SOT, which means I can now borrow suppressors from their extensive inventory. In a couple of weeks I’ll be a Texan, and close enough to Silencer Shop’s HQ to also borrow professional dB metering equipment to start producing more meaningful, complete suppressor reviews for y’all.

Gear Review: Q El Camino .22 LR Suppressor

The El Camino is the first silencer to come out of Q, Kevin Brittingham’s new venture. I believe for the first year it will be a Silencer Shop exclusive, and they loaned this one to me for a little quality time. As the Q guys were originally the AAC guys, and the AAC Element 2, which […]

Question Of The Day: .22 Upper or Drop-In Kit?

We all love to shoot our ARs, AKs, SCARs and other modern sporting rifles ™, but the price of ammo makes it impossible to spend an afternoon burning powder without burning a hefty wad of cash in the process. Even if you don’t mind using the cheap (steel-cased) stuff, you have to plan for spending […]
