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.

Q Fix Pre-Order Goes Live Tonight

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

During an IG Live broadcast earlier tonite, the Q crew showed off The Fix bolt action rifle and announced that pre-orders go live tonight at Midnight EST.

The pre-order is $2795 and limited to 500 rifles. Both .308 (16″) and 6.5 Creedmoor (22″) will be available. The Bartlein barrels will come with the Cherry Bomb flash hider and The Fix can be pre-ordered with the Trash PANDA silencer with matching serial number. The .308 is clear anodized with Blue accents. The 6.5 will offer a different accent color. I’m rooting for Orange. The clear anodizing is stronger than pigmented and means that parts made from different materials will have slightly different colors.

Rifles include two Magpul PMAGs and pre-orders will come with a Blue Force Gear weapon case in Blue. The shoulder strap is also a sling and there are modular pouches for silencer, magazines and a clear topped pouch for accessories.

Dealers must order at least five rifles to get dealer pricing.

There will be additional barrels in the future. There is a scope mount and short handguard available as well.

Look for mid-summer delivery.


SHOT Show Media Day – Q ‘Honey Badger’

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017


Behold the Q ‘Honey Badger’ in all its glory, AKA the Honey Badger 2.0. It retains much of the same DNA as the original Honey Badger, with a few differences.


First off, unlike the original Honey Badger, the HB 2.0’s suppressor will be included with the final gun, but it isn’t integral. If you’re thinking this means the Honey Badger 2.0 is a two-stamp gun, then you’d be right. Also of note is the forend is M-LOK compatible.


As you may notice, the HB 2.0 is currently outfitted with an ACT AR Gold trigger, and we were told that Q plans to make this the standard trigger for the production model as well. As it’s featured in the above image, the minimalist stock is also worth mentioning; it was designed in-house, and can be pulled straight back without pressing the button.

The Honey Badger 2.0 is a smooth shooting gun, and as expected of a gun designed to be suppressed, it’s pretty darn quiet. Look forward to seeing the HB 2.0 release later on this year.


SHOT Show Media Day – EOTech’s New Branding

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

EOTech showed up at Media Day at the Range with a new logo not only for their main brand, but also for their line of Vudu scopes.

While EOTech’s main focus was on the Vudu line, we also caught a glimpse of an EOTech electro-optic sporting the new branding, found on the Q Honey Badger, which we will focus on in an upcoming article.

The Fix Is In at Q

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

When Q had their grand opening party early this year, Kevin Brittingham showed me, and several other firearms media, a modular bolt gun which would eventually come to be known as “The Fix”. It’s seen below, along with the Honey Badger and a Beretta fitted with a Q suppressor.

Here are a few more shots of The Fix.

You can swap calibers.

The adjustable stock folds to the right.

The Fix is M-Lok compatible.

To wrap things up, here’s a shot of the integrally suppressed Honey Badger.

Look for full details during SHOT Show on these and other innovations from Q.

The Q Ball – SHOT Show 2017

Monday, 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 [email protected] 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.
