Salvo 12 suppressor improves shotgun situational awareness when out on the hunt

Michael Bane from Outdoor Channel's Shooting Gallery after trying out SilencerCo's shotgun suppressor at SHOT Show in Vegas

Las Vegas, Nevada - Can you hear me now? Actually, no. Least that was my bewildered reaction after stopping by the SilencerCo Shooting Bay at this year's Media Day at the Range.

Right out of the silver screen classic No Country for Old Men, my most recent Amazon Wish List addition SilencerCo's Salvo 12 removes everything audible outside of the gun's actual action ... that click, click, click of metal hitting metal. No boom boom no more.

Smallbore Rifle shooter Reya Kempley at the NRA National Championships in Camp Perry, Ohio

Colorado Springs, Colorado - Any shooter competing in a major competition understands the amount of preparation required before he or she finally steps up to the line: The countless hours training, the workouts, gun tweaks, visits to the physio, the sports psychologist…all of the hard work that it takes. What many may not know, however, is the level of work that goes on behind the scenes to make sure that athlete can actually make it to the line.

Meet just a couple members of our “Team behind the Team,” Reya Kempley and Morgan Wallizer. The pair not only train as rifle and pistol athletes respectively, but also work on a part-time basis for USA Shooting as Operations Assistants and have both competed on World Championship teams (Kempley will also be shooting as a member of this year’s World Championship team)... more on the team behind the ISSF World Championship Team ...
