The Silencers are Legal campaign was created in 2011 to raise awareness about a booming, yet marginalized US industry that is battling for its constitutional rights. Over 27,000 suppressors are purchased every year, and yet there are states that prohibit them. Despite growing popularity amongst military and civilians alike, silencers are still largely perceived to be associated with violent criminal activity, when in fact, they are not. The Silencers are Legal Campaign and the American Silencer Association aim to educate the public at large that silencers have the ability to save hearing, improve accuracy, increase situational awareness, and most importantly, save lives.
The Silencers are Legal Shoot is one of many initiatives created to unite the silencer community and form one strong voice for advocacy. To find out more go to silencersarelegal.com.

Silencerco was founded then founded with the mission to provide the civilian, military, and law enforcement customers with premier silencers. Employing unconventional thinking to inspire innovation and creative solutions, to improve product function, ease of use, and maintenance Silencerco is now the largest silencer manufacturer in the country for civilians and they are continuing to make progress in acquiring military deals.
