    The 5th Annual KRRC Silencer Shoot is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, July 18th, 2015 from 2pm to 6pm. Location is the Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club at 4900 Seabeck Highway NW, Bremerton, WA 98312. It will be run the same as the 2014 shoot with the rifle line restricted to suppressed firearms and the pistol line open for any handguns or rim fire rifles. If we need the room we will use one or more of the action pistol bays. KRRC members and anyone bringing a suppressed firearm, SBR or other NFA firearm attends for free. All others pay the usual $15 to attend. It is the wide variety of privately owned firearms and the manufacturers who really make this event come alive.

    Last year’s shoot was attended by Silencerco and Thunderbeast Arms; they each brought about 12 suppressed firearms and ammo for use by the public. I also brought several suppressed firearms and ammo. I’m hoping to have both of them back this year along with Wynakos Machine from Monroe and AAC, both of whom expressed interest in attending last year. Firearms available for public use included those in 22lr, 223, 308, 338 mag, 510/338 Whisper and 300 Blackout. We can look forward to the same variety this year.
    Many people brought their own ammunition so we did not run out. I put some of my cans on hosts that people brought to the shoot including a Mosin Nagant rifle.
    We will have many metal targets to shoot including falling plates for pistol and rifles. No steel core ammo allowed on the plates though.

    Passage of I-594 and its amendment of RCW.9.41 will have little effect on the event. http://apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?cite=9.41.113
    The firearms made available to the public are kept on the range at all times for this event. Parents must supervise their children while at the range as is normally required.

    If anyone has any suggestions or is a manufacturer/dealer and wants to attend, please let me know. Thank you.

    Bowers Group an Oregon company that makes suppressors. Their 9mm suppressors for subguns are well regarded in the class 3 community.

    I had planned on holding a Silencer Shoot at the Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club on July 18th, but with the decision by Kitsap County Judge Roof to prohibit shooting at the club until they obtain a use permit I was unable to ensure we would be open by that time. I think it is unlikely that the County will issue a permit to KRRC, ever. The KRRC feels applying for a permit will negate their grandfathered status which was affirmed by the Appeals Court. The Poulsbo Sportsman Club is currently open while awaiting a use permit. I don't know for how long the County will allow them to operate without a permit or what kind of additional restrictions will be placed on them if a permit is issued in the future.

    Please remind the county Commissioners that they need to explain why they are the only jurisdiction that would sue a shooting club over noise complaints then tell the club that use of noise abatement is illegal.

    There are other Silencer Shoots going on in the state for those who are interested.
