Black Aces Tactical Announces Po’ Boy AR15 Suppressor for Just $199

Friday, May 12th, 2017

ORLANDO, FLORIDA – Black Aces Tactical (BAT), an American manufacturer best known for its patented custom shotguns, is excited to announce the release of the company’s new Po’ Boy suppressor for 5.56 AR15.

At just $199 retail – with even the least expensive silencers on the market coming in at nearly double the price – customers are finally now able to purchase a quality suppressor at less than the cost of the required NFA tax stamp.

“For years, the suppressor industry has been producing an increasingly complex and costly product with little change in performance,” said Eric Lemoine, CEO of Black Aces Tactical states. “We were confident we could manufacture a simple yet rugged product that meets and surpasses expectations, while being affordable for gun owners.”

Named the Pro Series 56 “Po’Boy,” partly for its price and partly as a nod to Lemoine’s Louisiana roots, the suppressor features a number of details only found on much more pricy models offered by other manufactures.

Perhaps more intriguing than its cost is its efficiency. The Po’Boy quiets the 5.56 AR15 by more than 30 decibels. It’s fully automatic-capable on both 16” and limited 12” barrel lengths and boasts a 2,000-degree Cerakote finish. Further, to combat a top complaint about suppressors, the Po’ Boy was designed to be fully serviceable with an AR15 stock wrench.

“Through ingenuity and innovation, Black Aces Tactical has used a combination of time-tested design and modern technology to produce a suppressor that is as strong as it is quiet and affordable,” said Lemoine.

“Make Silencers Great Again” Promotion from Griffin Armament

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Griffin Armament is proud to announce the “Make Silencers Great Again Promotion” Effective immediately every silencer* shipping from Griffin’s manufacturing floor to its Dealers and Distributors will contain two $100 coupons which can be mailed to Griffins address in exchange for store credit on their website. Boxes containing coupons will be sealed with a gold label.

“Sales are down unnecessarily, said Evan Green business development manager at Griffin Armament. “When the markets have been rallying and jobs are being produced, consumer misunderstanding of the legislative process and the Hearing Protection Act, is hurting an otherwise stable industry. Many people who want to buy are sitting on discretionary spending in the hopes that HPA will soon pass. The entire industry has come to a very similar conclusion that it will be quite a while until HPA is able to pass if at all despite almost unanimous support. People not buying right now is only further delaying them from enjoying silencers. It just doesn’t make any sense and this shouldn’t have happened. Unfortunately a lot of miss information was flying around and nobody in the industry was trying to educate consumers on how long it actually takes to get a bill to pass, what percentage of bills pass, that the legislative process usually takes hundreds of days etc. This bill in some form has been presented to congress since 2015 and this congressional session is closing in a few months, so it looks like it will be rolling to another year. Griffin is just as hopeful as everyone else for the HPA. However having a realistic viewpoint on it is critical to the survival of the silencer industry and the Americans who work hard to move it forward. The ‘Make Silencers Great Again’ promotion is the most we can do as a company to try to encourage spending right now.” Evan continued. “It’s honestly an amazing time to be a buyer. I remember when I was younger and was spending my money on an OPS INC can and promotions didn’t exist in the market. You could barely even get a dealer to handle the sale for you. Muzzle devices had to be purchased separately from the silencer, etc. I remember having to help my local class 3 dealer to understand the paperwork because he did so few transactions. But times have changed and there are plenty of dealers on the market selling products at great prices and walking the customer through the purchase quickly while keeping them informed. This program is also a great way to let consumers know that we appreciate them, we’ve been wanting to so something like this for a while.”

24 Hour Warning – Q Launching Pre-Orders of half NELSON & FULL NELSON Suppressors Via Instagram Live

Friday, February 17th, 2017

Tomorrow at 3 PM Eastern standard time, Q will once again take to Instagram Live to showcase and launch the pre-order for their half NELSON & FULL NELSON suppressors.


Here are the specs.


I already know what you’re thinking. Pending suppressor legislation for the liberalization of Suppressor regulation, known as the “Hearing Protection Act” will be great for everyone and it’s happening soon. However, it’s still just a bill and we don’t know when it will pass. While the odds look good, when it does become law, there will be a huge demand for Suppressors. Concurrently, prices will spike, at least temporarily, due to demand. Purchasing the ones you want now not only locks in your price, but also guarantees you’ll get them.


Q understands your concerns. Many don’t want to spend the $200 stamp tax in the event the HPA passes; so Q is offering $200 off now on each suppressor, and then another $200 rebate when HPA passes in the future. That’s a potential saving of $400 per suppressor and the $200 discount is just that, and not a voucher you can use on one of their other products. You can spend it on whatever you want, but I understand Robby suggests making it rain at the gentlemen’s club.

-Get your suppressors now, before they are impossible to find once HPA becomes law
-Q is opening up pre-orders to *individuals* only Saturday 2/18 @ 3 PM, join them on Instagram Live
-100 of each suppressor are available for order and individuals will receive $200 off their order

Those of you who want to ensure you’ll get one of limited pre-order suppressors can download your for here and upload it to liveqordie.com tomorrow at 3:00 PM EST.

Join the event at www.instagram.com/the_official_q. They are always a good time and Kevin usually lets something slip that isn’t supposed to be released yet.

CDC Study: Use Suppressors To Reduce Noise Exposure

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

The American Suppressor Association shared this press release with us. Anti-2A organizers have long wanted to use the Center for Disease Control and Prevention as source material to curtail gun rights. However, this report doesn’t follow their expected narrative.

The question of increased access to firearms Suppressors is indeed a public health question. Their implementation as a standard, over-the-counter device would not only help preserve the hearing of gun owners, but also their dogs used for hunting as well as nearby livestock and wildlife. Additionally, the use of suppressors would lower the profile of firearms ranges and lead to a decrease in spurious nuisance complaints.

Finally, with an increased market size, prices will come down and technological innovation will increase. Military and law enforcement will benefit from this boon, better protecting those serving, as well as the public.

With the reintroduction of the Duncan-Carter Hearing Protection Act, suppressors have been thrust to the forefront of the national political debate. According to many traditional gun control advocates, firearms are not loud enough to cause hearing damage. They make definitive statements, like this one from a recent LA Times article, that, “there’s no evidence of a public health issue associated with hearing loss from gunfire.”

To this end, they could not be more wrong.

In a study from 2011 entitled Noise and Lead Exposures at an Outdoor Firing Range – California, researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found the following (see page 5):


If you still don’t believe that hearing loss is a public health issue associated with gunfire, and that suppressors help hunters and recreational shooters reduce their exposure to dangerous noise levels, there is likely nothing that we can say that will change your mind. Just know that the correct term for your opinion is willful ignorance.
