 (Lee’s note: Due to the massive amount of fun we had shooting this episode, the video is split into two parts.)

This week, Mike Young, Mike Lang and I filmed our episode on-location at a private shooting range near Venice.

We were joined by the silencer kings Scott Quick and Chris Magnant of Quick Draw Defense, and Chris Senterfitt and Jordan Williams of Amendment II Armory.

Our mission? Silence the noise!

Scott and Chris move around 40 silencers each month, which is impressive enough. But they recently developed a new silencer along with Brandan Bunker of Bunker Arms.

To be clear — this is a silencer designed and manufactured here on the Suncoast. While it’s still in the R&D stage, expect it to hit the shelves sometime next year.

Scott and Chris brought a wide array of suppressed weapons, including a rather unique 30-30. Our AIIA pals had loaded some subsonic 30-30. The result was one of the quietest .30-caliber weapons that any of us had ever seen.

We hope you enjoy the videos as much as we do making them — especially this one!

Thanks to all involved.

Mike and Lee

  1. I really enjoyed these videos featuring silencers/suppressors and the differences in sound when firing.
    Especially interesting to suppressor-neophyte me was the explanation section about the inner workings and design. THAT was really cool! Good job, guys!
