The Q Ball – SHOT Show 2017

October 24th, 2016

Traditionally, Kevin Brittingham has been known for holding some really great SHOT show parties at the Rio’s Voodoo Lounge. If you want to know what a Kevin Brittingham SHOT Show party is like, this  video from 2010 features MiniKISS. It was a rocking good time.

Now that he has the new company Q, why should things be any different? In fact, I’d bet The Q Ball will be even better.

You need to four important things about this event: Zip line, party, girls, fun! Sounds great, right? Be Military, Government or an Industry customer, and you are the kind of person this party is meant for. However, it’s invite only, so the only way to get a pass is through a sponsor, or Q. Unfortunately, there is a limited number of passes as the venue holds only about 500 people. There are still sponsorship packages available and interested parties can reach out to for more info.

If a cool party atmosphere wasn’t enough of a reason to go, how about some business? The Q Ball will feature product releases as well as giveaways and an auction to benefit the great work of the Special Operations Care-Fund.

As an aside for those of you who attend all of these parties at SHOT Show, that graphic gives you an idea of what they cost. So think about that next time you’re sucking down booze provided by a company that you’ll never buy a thing from. Vegas isn’t cheap and Q isn’t making money here, they’re just paying the going rate.

Red Beach, Guadalcanal. My grandfather served on Guadalcanal. It was some of the roughest fighting in the war in the Pacific. He would never talk about it.

TAC-SAC – Get Your Balls Back America

October 23rd, 2016

There’s not a lot that needs to be said about the TAC-AC. Rather, it’s something that you get, once youve seen. Unfortunately, in this day and age, the TAC-SAC may be offensive to some, so I’ll suggest you not go to the jump unless you’re sure your career won’t be in jeopardy. Read the rest of this entry »

Meet The El Camino Suppressor From Q

October 23rd, 2016

Earlier this year, Kevin Brittingham put together his dream team to form a new company, named Q. While I initially believed they were going to launch a series of weapon accessories, including optics mounts, they went right after suppressors.

Considering Brittingham and chief designer Ethan Lessard’s background at AAC and SIG it shouldn’t have come as a surprise, but it did. That’s because the first product is a .22 suppressor called the El Camino.

I thought to myself, “Why would he mess with a .22 suppressor?” So, I asked Kevin Brittingham and he told me he considers the AAC Element the industry standard .22 suppressor, but he found that it isn’t very accurate. That’s why he did it.

Q has a couple of world class shooters who go by the names of Robbie Johnson and Lindsay Bunch. They took several .22 suppressors out and determined that none of them held accuracy. It’s a common issue that few recognize because most suppressed .22 weapons aren’t known for their own accuracy. In the case of the Element, the suppressed shot group was two to three times the size of an unsuppressed group. Consequently, the team concentrated on improving accuracy along with sound suppression.

For instance, Brittingham claims the El Camino is as quiet as the AAC Element although the Element may have a half db edge on first round pop.

In conjunction with Silencer Shop, Q gave the El Camino a soft launch at the recent Texas Firearms Festival. Silencer Shop posted video of the El Camino in action on both rifle and pistol, on their Instagram feed. As unscientific as the demonstration was, the weapons’ actions were louder than the report of the round being fired.

Q put a lot of R&D into the El Camino and there will be two variants. The Stainless Steel (17-4) model weighs about 4.2 oz and the titanium model is around 2.2 oz.

Either way, the construction remains constant. With both styles, the tube is titanium. Additionally, the end cap doesn’t use a proprietary tool for disassembly. Instead, it is compatible with a standard 1/2″ box end wrench or hex socket which most shooters have handy.

The baffles are a steep cone with asymmetric cut, whether 17-4 Stainless Steel or Titanium, and are designed to shield gasses from the outer tube.

During testing, Q shot 1000 rounds and at the end of the string of fire they disassembled the can and the baffles all fell right out. None of them were stuck to the outer tube, or one another.

Interestingly, the El Camino also features PVD coating. That’s a feature you aren’t going to see on a .22 can due to cost.

They’ve already started shipping forms and the first El Camino could be available in as little as two weeks.

Brittingham related that the planned MSRP is somewhere around $400; add about $50 to the cost for Ti baffles.

As I understand it, the entire first year’s run of El Camino suppressors will be available exclusively through our friends at Silencer Shop.

The El Camino might seem like the most vanilla product Q could release but it’s got my attention. I look forward to trying it out, along with several other promised products, including a full line of suppressors with a completely new construction, as well as a long gun, during SHOT Show.
