Hopefully, loyal TTAG readers can sympathize with me when I say that wedding season has ruined my shooting year. Seven weddings has meant that I’ve been to the range only a handful of times in 2013, and at one point, had every weekend for four months spoken for. So when RF and Nick shot me an email on Friday asking if I could cover an event on Saturday in nearby Lockhart, TX, I typed out, “Sorry. Wedding season in effect. Can’t do anything.” Then I checked my calendar and realized that I was wrong – I actually had a weekend free to go shoot guns! Make the jump for gun porn and words . . .
And what a way to return to the range. Here’s the list of what was available courtesy of Liberty Suppressors and SilencerShop.
- M16 in 5.56 (Full-auto with a 11.5” barrel)
- AR-15 in 5.56 (16”)
- FNP Tactical in .45acp
- Glock 17 in 9mm
- Sig P226 DA in 9mm
- Leonidas (AR15 in .300BLK with integral suppressor)
- Mjolnar (Rem 700 in .300 whisper with integral suppressor)
- S&W M&P15/22 in .22LR
- Ruger MKII in .22LR
- Glock 27 in .40S&W
- Custom bolt action .308
- Uzi subgun in 9mm
I was very impressed with both Liberty and SilencerShop. The staff was friendly and incredibly safe during a very busy range day. This was my first opportunity to put hands on suppressors fitted to guns identical to what I own. I haven’t yet made the jump into suppressor ownership, but after this weekend I think a rimfire can for my 10/22 and my wife’s Mark III are in order.
Awesome. Thanks for sharing. Mmmmm, Kreuz’s!
Whoops, forgot the more link. Also, *what* is that guy wearing in the 3rd from the last photo? Is that PJs?
The most comfortable shirt that Wrangler Western Wear has ever produced.
i was just looking at their mystic suppressor this last weekend. did you have a chance to try that suppressor?
Looking at some of the pics, I think Tyler did (or maybe he shot the titanium version of it, the Infinity). I just wanted to jump in and mention that I’m going to do a full write-up on the Mystic in the next week or two. Right now, there are 11 videos on my YT channel with the Mystic on various guns, from .22 to 9mm to .223/5.56. Definitely cool to be able to use it on lots of calibers!
” I haven’t yet made the jump into suppressor ownership, but after this weekend I think a rimfire can for my 10/22 and my wife’s Mark III are in order.”
Don’t forget, Liberty’s awesome Mystic suppressor, which is technically a 9mm can, can be run on a HUGE range of calibers from .223/5.56 to .300 blk to .22 LR and so many more. Since you’re spending $200 on the tax no matter what, plus waiting 6 to 9 months, it’s pretty nice to get a suppressor that can work on so many guns!
Now that I’ve put a few hundred rounds through mine and have run it on, I believe, 8 different guns, I’m going to put together a full review in the next couple weeks…
P.S. — that looked like a fun day!!!
what did you think about the leonidas?
Unfortunately, I didn’t bring any .300 BLK and neither did anyone else. I was actually disappointed I didn’t get to hear it run.
Tyler, when you said you had seven weddings, I thought you were auditioning for your own version of “Sister Wives.”
Is my face red.
I never realized those baffles in the can in the top picture spelled out the company name. Interesting.
I might be off base here, but I *think* that was made specifically for promotional purposes. That’s not a production design, AFAIK.
Jeremy, you are correct it is a one time core. In all actuality it is very heavy and would be loud. We mad it as a joke and kept it around to pull out on demo’s.
