Ballistic Research and Machine

Has anybody here heard of Ballistic Research and Machine? They are a local silencer manufacturer (Jacksonville NC). I saw one of their cans at the LGS and the store owner speaks highly of them. The local shop subs out machining jobs to them and they will make a custom baffle stack or an integral bar...

Re: First suppressor: Bowers uss 22 vs Thunder Beast takedown 22

Either of those will be good first can choices. I agree with Doubloon that the overall package is more important than the meter readings in the literature. The biggest difference between them is really the size. You want it a little smaller? OK, cost is smaller one is not quite as quiet. Close, but ...

Re: Suppressed 410 ---It's Complete

Very cool. I have a bolt action 410 that I never use because it isn't really good for much as it is. Something like this would turn it into a sort of lawn and garden DeLisle.

Re: SCOTUS accepts case questioning whether defendants should be shackled in the courtroom

Sure, but a suit is more or less ubiquitous men's businesses/ not-casual clothing. Being in court isn't casual. It's not jeans and sneakers time, it's tuck in your shirt and straighten up your tie time. Does taking the proceeding seriously enough to dress like you take it seriously create bias?

I believe it creates a bias, whether for or against the defendant depends on the perspective of the juror.
Interesting.

So does a suit and tie, present the defendant as a disembodied voice or better a transcript. Judge them on their words alone.

I binged that and came up with a few of his videos with "IQ" in the title. Which video are you referring to?

Edit: ok, I think I found it. Is it "the welfare state is an IQ test"?

Re: if the left supports social equality why do they support laws that prevent the lower class from owning MG's?

I don't think they would buy it. Machine guns have been taboo since before most people were born. People accept that as a given. The decades of conditioning worked. They don't even want them. It's too far outside of the pen to nibble at.

Re: is it possible to get a home based 07/02? if so do you have to pay ITAR even if you dont ever manufacture anything?

How is one a "manufacturer" if one doesn't manufacture anything? As I understand it, you can't get a FFL solely to enhance your collection. You can buy all the personal guns you want, but it's a license to engage in business, so if no business is done they will eventually void the license. I don't h...

Thanks. Ciener makes top notch stuff. Unfortunately it looks like he's not doing the Glock kits for now. Not sure if he's going to make them any more or if he's just building other stuff now, but the site says no dice.

Anybody have feedback on the Advantage Arms or the Tactical Solutions kits?

Glock 22lr kits as suppressor hosts?

22lr kits for the Glock have been around for a few years now. When they first came out they worked best with high velocity ammo. In some cases they only worked with HV.

Do the current ones function with standard or sub sonic? Is there one that is a good candidate to he a suppressor host?
