Perhaps not on the forefront of some gun owners’ minds these days, but the fight for the Second Amendment is a daily struggle. The challenge is not to convince gun owners—at least not in most situations. Instead, the challenge is to educate the non gun owner. Two of the major obstacles to our success are the movies (Hollywood) and the media. Both have a huge influence on the general populace. Neither typically portrays guns factually.
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.
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.

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.
Walking through the manufacturer and exhibitor booths at the 2017 Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor, Trade (SHOT) Show’s Industry Day at the Range, I had a chance to speak with several suppressor manufacturers as well as several dealers. The news was mixed but consistent.
I received the following from the NRA today and it got me to thinking. I have never lived in a state at the time suppressors were legal, but I wish I did. Whether hunting coyotes or just a day at the range, life would just be better.
One more state finally gets it! The movies are not reality and suppressors are not dangerous in the hands of citizens. In fact, they have several beneficial applications in hunting and target shooting as well as protecting the shooter and those in the immediate surrounding area.
