New Member that just stepped up from the "lurker" ranks. You guys even mentioned BRD and I couldn't stop myself from posting. It is incessant and tied with a healthy portion of OCD it's worse than cancer. I find myself "coming to" while driving home and there's another upper or something laying on the seat next to me! My left hand is now conspiring against me, if the eyes spy something blackish, it starts moving towards my wallet without my blessing or permission.
Woodnut, NFA usually refers to the National Firearms Act and the governance of Class III weapons, meaning you have to have a BATF approved form 4 before the dealer can let you leave with your new toy!
Now for a really bad mutation of BRD, get a can.....Canned BRD with no hearing protection. It's brilliant and again, can get expensive. My first one was M4 type for my good lady to whack coyotes at the house when I'm away at work. It got a Halo from Gem-tech. She didn't like my old prairie dog special 22-250, something about too noisy, but I really couldn't hear her.
Well that gun (M4) was too heavy with the Halo on it.....amazingly a BM Carbon-15 arrived on the scene at a whopping 3.8 lbs. She's now happy and I got the M4, which led to a 7.62x39 canned upper and a 24" fluted upper which led to DPMS LR-308, which is leading to a 450 BM upper (On sale at Cabelas for $550 complete, I just can't pass a price like that up!)
Now, the 7.62x39 barrel is being swapped for a 300 whisper. The old barrel won't stabilize the EBR 220 sub sonic ammo; so it's got to go. I have to admit the old russian ammo is cheap and great on hogs in tight. Dang it, I've just talked myself into a 300 whisper upper.
This disease is terrible
I also have a Gem-tech Outback II that splits time on my walter P22 and Her 10/22. The rim fire cans are much smaller/lighter because they don't have the volume of gas to trap as the centerfire rounds.
If you go for a centerfire can, that's alot of weight on the end of the barrel. It makes a handy rifle into a right b$#ch to hold on target, especially if you're waiting for something to clear brush for a good shot.
If you're serious about going suppressed, I really like SRT Arms gear. My last one was the integral suppressed camp 45 in the attached pic, I wish it had been my first one! Great gear, this camp 45 sounds like a brad air nailer when you send that 230grn hollowpoint downrange.
Anywho, I'm typing and I can't quit. Too much coffee again, sorry.
