Even though the button-down Borg (a.k.a. Cerberus’ Freedom Group) snapped-up the southern-fried suppressor folk, Advanced Armament Company is still living the dream. The company is safe haven to testosterone-crazed males who are deep into black guns, Italian cars and shapely women. Exactly what you’d expect from a company whose logo is a skull and crossed modern home defense sporting rifles. The above image is the latest in their Volk-like canon of supressor-selling gun porn. I think it takes things a bit too far. AAC spends a lot of time, effort and money promoting silencers as good clean, high-tech fun. For most people (i.e. anyone who’s never fished with the stuff) a stick of dynamite evokes uncomfortable images of mass destruction. It’s hard to walk the line between cutting-edge corporate firearms fetishist and plain old-fashioned gun loon. Still, it’s better to play it not safe than sorry. I guess.
