We have several shooters with supressors shooting our Tactical Rifle and Multi Range F Class Matches.
I just wish they were cheaper to buy, and you did not have to put up with all the Balogne to own one.
The reduction in Noise is very welcome.

I hope you have a great turn out.

It was a good turnout. The rifle line was full for several hours and most people brought suppressed firearms. One manufacturer showed up to answer questions and let people demo their suppressed rifles. I shot my first 44 mag Silent Destroyer; very impressive. I might have to make one of my own some day.

One guy bought an Encore and let people shoot 50 cal API bullets (510 whisper) into a metal gong 150 yards downrange. The clang/flash/bang of the bullet from 150 yards away was nearly as loud as the muzzle blast. The plate was 18" wide so there were very few misses. One miss cut through a piece of rebar holding the gong up inside of the tractor tire it was mounted in. I was able to collect some of the intact steel cores the next day.
