SilencerCo – Harvested: Borderlands

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

SilencerCo recently hunted aoudads with UFC Featherweight Fighter Chad Mendes, utilizing suppressed rifles and the assistance of expert guides. The full release can be read below:




past tense: harvested; past participle: harvested

to catch or hunt (animals) for consumption and use

Hunting. It’s a tradition. It’s a challenge. It’s a way to provide. We don’t just understand this–we live it. Hunting is a part of our lives just as much as it is a part of yours.

During World War II, American soldiers stationed off the Barbary Coast of Northern Africa discovered a native sheep species, known as the aoudad. Recognizing their potential as a game animal, they shipped them to Texas; Aoudads quickly proved to be an extremely challenging hunt for multiple reasons. Their keen sense of smell, hearing, and alertness to danger, combined with their capability to retain water from sparse vegetation and survive long periods of time without it, gives them the ability to live in rugged, dry habitats that are often too harsh for other animals.

We had the rare opportunity to scout the high desert terrain with UFC® Featherweight Fighter Chad Mendes in search of this elusive creature. Equipped with silenced rifles and accompanied by expert guides, we set off to reconnect with the wilderness and harvest some challenging game.

About Chad Mendes

Chad began wrestling at the age of five and continued the sport throughout high school and college until his competitive success led him to move to Sacramento and train with Team Alpha Male. Before turning pro, however, Mendes took home an impressive list of ranks and titles, including two-time PAC-10 Champ, two-time D-I NCAA All-American, and a second-degree black belt in wrestling. Now, after less than three years of professional fighting, Mendes has also earned seven wins by way of knockout, two wins by submission, a record of 4-0 in WEC with wins over Javier Vazquez, Cub Swanson, Anthony Morrison, and Erik Koch, and he has won six of his last nine fights. Mendes most recently founded Finz and Featherz, a hunting and guide service.

CrossFit Games Director and Navy SEAL Veteran Dave Castro from California Joins The Suppressed

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah – July 14, 2016 – SilencerCo LLC, the industry leader in silencers, is proud to consider Dave Castro as the newest member of The Suppressed. The team joined the Navy SEAL veteran and CrossFit Games Director in the gym to get his take on the bizarre gun restrictions found out west.

“A lot of people are not into shooting because of the noise issue. Suppressors help take that away. It’s insane [that we can’t have suppressed firearms] in places like California… I know people who refuse to live [here] because of the gun laws.”

Dave also shares his story of growing up around guns and how they helped define his life and contributed to his passion for elite competitive fitness.
