    So I am working on getting my Trust together to get the ball rolling.

    My first item will be a .22 can followed by SBRing an AR lower, then a suppressor for that at some point.

    Now I have read alot on different cans and while everyone has a different opinion, everyone seem to like the Sparrow, Specter II, Element 2 followed by others...I've also read that the Tacsol Axiom and Dead Air Mask are very good...SO , does anyone around Salem happen to have one of these that would be willing to talk to me, show me, and ideally let me shoot though it.

    Right now my host will be a mk3 22/45 and eventually get my 10/22 threaded to join it.

    I'd be happy to supply the ammo, could meet up at a range, BLM land or suppressed at my place outside Dallas.

    If your willing to help me out, Please let me know. I really dont want to just wing it an pick one without actually trying something out.

    Chris

    I have an Axiom I'd be happy to take the range and let you shoot/check out. I typically shoot at ARPC, just not sure when I can make it with house projects going on. Feel free to shoot me a PM and we can try and make something work.

    I have an omega if you would like to hear what it sounds like on a 308 bolt or 223 bolt or 223 ar sounds like, I have not nor do i have any mounts for shooting a 22 through it, and because of how dirty .22 is, you will want a dedicated 22 suppressor. I shoot at arpc also, I do have a number of friends in the polk county area, but if you want let me know I can always be convinced to go to the range :)

    I'll let you shoot my SS Sparrow and my Spectre II. I also shoot at ARPC, but I haven't been in a while mostly due to weather. If we only shoot .22 LR, we could shoot indoors there. If you want to also shoot some 9mm full auto suppressed, then we'll have to be outside.

    I was thinking of going out either Saturday or Sunday possibly, not sure if @wayoutwest would be available, but we could get a few suppressors together, that would be pretty sweet.

    Just a heads up man, you can rent suppressors at Threat Dynamics in Tualatin for 10 dollars. All calibers etc. I believe.

    Hey that's great info! I wasn't aware of that at all. Do they have their inventory posted? Or do you know which cans they have?

    I don't know, to be honest. I know they had several, last time I was in. I tried two different ones for one of my 45's. Give em a call tomorrow and ask, they are really good guys, they will help you out!
