NSSF Calls Foul on USFWS Director’s Parting Shot on Traditional Ammo

With one-day left of President Obama’s term, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe acted without dialogue or public comment. Was it one more instance of a public official going rogue and imposing a personal agenda, or finishing the business he was appointed to do? The timing certainly seems suspect, but it is the details that really matter. Here is the full analysis and release from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).

Suppressor ownership is on the horizon and hopefully coming to your home soon—without waiting months or paying for costly tax stamps. Talking with suppressor manufacturers, few believe we will see the legislation in the first 100 days of Donald Trump’s presidency, but all are confident that it will come.

SilencerCo Maxim 9s are set to begin shipping in the next few months.

That begs the question, where will the market go if suppressors are commonly available? How will technology be affected? Most importantly, which one would you buy—first?

It is the last question that SilencerCo is most concerned with. After almost a decade of development—because they believed there was no point bringing a product to market until it had been perfected—SilencerCo has timed perfectly timed the release of the new MAXIM 9.

For now, we will all have to keep our fingers crossed. However, in the meantime, here is a video and a few facts from SilencerCo to salivate and dream over.


Nine years of dreaming.

Ten thousand hours of trial and error.

Numerous failures that served as valuable learning experiences.

One holster-able, integrally suppressed 9mm pistol that is hearing safe with all types of ammunition: the Maxim 9.

The time has come, the kinks are worked out, the details are dialed, and now the world will experience true innovation.

In honor of the official production launch of the Maxim 9, take a look behind the curtain for a glimpse into the journey to create the most disruptive product to hit the firearms industry in decades.

Maxim 9s will begin showing up around the country as early as April 2017. Standby, revolution is on the way.
