Can it be seen from 85 and Lville Suwanee?

I was originally thinking somewhere around Discovery Mills, on the south side of things somewhere close to Boggs Rd. That would be about ten miles .... but then I think Lville Suwanee Rd is closer to 10 miles from Indian Trail.

And if its up in Suwanee ..... Olde Towne in the square there near city hall and the police station ..... kick ass place for lunch. 10 wings extra crispy, all drums, hot, blue cheese and a sweet tea ... pretty damn good eats. The eye candy there isnt bad either. I prefer the Suwanee location over the Lville location though.
I like wings... :D

Guess you do too! :lol:
The bartender that was in Playboy didnt hurt either.

Personally I think this is the most brilliant business move in recent firearms history and I hope you guys can make the most of it. Using the Remington brand name to finally make suppressors a mainstream marketable item is something the entire firearms community and the 2nd Amendment movement desperately need. The number of new shooters introduced to the firearms owning world by making suppressors more common and thus shooting more enjoyable is something that would be a gigantic step towards reversing the cultural extinction problem we have been facing for the last 25 years.

If you guys do it right and push AAC's quality products branded with one of the most recognizable brand names in firearms, you could have the biggest breakout since Glock in the 90's.

I've been a Remington owner my whole (shooting) life and have gotten great customer service from them when I've needed it, but their shotguns are made so well I've only needed it once. I have absolutely nothing but the best to say about their company out of 25 years of shooting their guns and their ammo-I've put down every kind of game within the areas I've lived in without fail and without desire for anything else. Deer, dove, duck, quail, turkey, coyote, squirrel, rabbit...all of them have been taken using Remington guns or ammo or both. No one I've ever known has had anything to say about them except more of the same.

And they're not paying me a single dime to say that. It's simply the truth.

But can there be more cans produced under the Remington name in addition, not substitute? The recognition would bust open the market for you guys so wide you could run 3 factories full blast.

Something exactly like that. Off the top of my head I can think of several guys I know who might never have bought a can from a company they've never heard of and have marginal acceptance of the idea but if it were a Remington they'd buy it instantly because that's the brand they've trusted for decades.

We have no interest in this.

Remington doesn't make silencers, AAC does.

However, we will increase our production to the point where there are a lot more silencers in the marketplace. That will help get more good silencers out there.

I need more time to complete your silencer. It will ship before the move so no, the move will not hold yours up.

Fair enough. Do you foresee enhancement in your advertising and distribution to open access and exposure to more people rather than the semi-secret--i.e. not in 99% of gun stores and not visible 99.99% of the time people browse firearms and less than 1% of all firearms advertising- state of things now? AAC makes silencers, but Remington sells. And sells and sells and sells. In short, will we see AAC where we see Remington because we should.

99% of gun stores do not have SOT status.

We are working on a LOT of industry-expanding plans.

Silencers will continue to be branded AAC- that is what we do. But, Remington will help us get places we couldn't have before and do things bigger and faster and better. There will be various versions of cross marketing/etc.

this will all be for the better in terms of the industry, for AAC, for Remington, and for our customers- mil AND civ.

I'm guessing there will be direct pairing with DPMS. That's an easy one, eh?

I think this is good. Being a Remington company will add 'repectability" to the evil silencer trade.

I hope to get a Prodigy next year, so we'll see how things go.
