Omar Samir Akmed (aka Aaron) shooting his 9mm AR pistol w/YHM Cobra 9 suppressor.
What a frigid month. We were fortunate to make it out to the range one time this month along with a few other brave souls willing to test the elements. We brought out a nice collection of suppressor ready firearms for the 22, 9mm, 40SW, 45ACP, 5.56, & 308W. As part of the demonstration we walked through the process of procuring a suppressor.
Since one of the guest and one other member was from
Omar testing out D9’s Night Hawk Custom Tactical 45 w/Osprey 45.
The fun started with the suppressed Mosquito. Our favorite 22 cans are the Silencerco Sparrow and SWR Spectre. We’ve had an AAC Pilot that we’ve used for demonstrations. We shot a few rounds with the suppressor on and since it has the least amount of muzzle blast we shot one round without a suppressor and without hearing protection. This usually sets the stage with the Wow factor.
A couple of our friends brought their cans for their 9mms and 22lr. Our other guests and members took turns with shooting their weapons. Our good friend Omar Sahir Akmed. (aka Aaron. Although he may look like a terrorist, an islamo terrorist will quickly realize when gazing upon the lady liberty tattoo on his forearm and the Arabic “Infidel” engraved on his lower, that he his has gravely mistaken him for a brother AK wielding goat hearding sodomite.)

One of the interesting things we noticed while testing the 9, 40 & 45 on this sub freezing day was that the db drop was significant after about 3 rounds. Generally you’re hear a noticeable drop from the 1st to the second round, but with the blistering cold it would take a minimum of 3 if not 4 rounds to bring the sound level to the cans capabilities.

Over the next several months you will see us talking about suppressors more because after just visiting my ENT surgeon for a hearing test and one of the things he asked was have you been shooting without hearing protection. My response was not recently no, but in the past and younger days and lots of loud rock n roll of course. So needless to say the loud ringing in my ears is not going away and another unfortunate aspect is I can’t hear Mrs. D9’s lovely voice as easily when she’s explaining to me the things I haven’t done.
Hearing protection required here. What a difference a can makes.
If you’re interested in a suppressor please contact us. We carry a broad line of suppressors from SWR, Yankee Hill Machine, Silencerco, and AAC.
