The Maxim 50 is Now the Maxim 47?

In News & Opinion by TWANGnBANG

It was bound to happen. California, New Jersey, and Massachusetts have each served SilencerCo with legal challenges to their new Maxim 50 integrally suppressed muzzleloader.  These party pooper states are upset that their existing laws don’t actually ban something that makes gun people happy, even though it takes forever to load and is still very loud and smoky despite the …

In News & Opinion by TWANGnBANG

That’s right!  SilencerCo finally did what many of us wanted to see and suppressed a muzzleloader.  What surprises me most, though, is the fact that it’s 50-state legal.  Anyone over 18 years old and otherwise legally able to purchase a muzzleloader can purchase the Maxim 50 online. How did they do it?  It’s because gun laws are dumb, but sometimes …

Petitions Are Fine, But Legislation Is Final

In News & Opinion by TWANGnBANG

Recently, a whitehouse.gov petition calling for a repeal of the National Firearms Act reached the 100,000 signatures required for a response from the White House.  That’s certainly great news, but the bad news is twofold: first, this White House hasn’t responded to a single petition and will possibly never do so; second, the petition itself doesn’t change a thing even with a …

Don’t Wait Until the HPA Rush to Buy a Silencer

In News & Opinion by TWANGnBANG

The huge drop-off in silencer sales was also a big topic of discussion at SHOT Show, though for the irony of it all. Buyers are waiting for the Hearing Protection Act to pass before purchasing their next silencers, and this is already hurting the industry.  Dealers and distributors both have been cancelling orders for new silencers as some have seen their …
