American Suppressor Association Event
Saturday, August, 19th // 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Come and hear the silence! On Saturday, August 19, Carolina Sporting Arms will host the American Suppressor Association (ASA) here. The ASA is THE voice for promoting the advantages and benefits of suppressor ownership. The ASA also lobbies throughout the country attempting to make suppressor ownership legal and further easing restrictions. From their website;
‘The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is the unified voice of the suppressor industry. Our mission is to unite and advocate for the common interests of suppressor manufacturers, distributors, dealers, and consumers. To accomplish our mission, our principal initiatives focus on state lobbying, federal lobbying, public education, and industry research.
For four years, the ASA has worked in conjunction with like-minded organizations to ensure and expedite the passage of pro-suppressor laws and regulations. Since the ASA’s formation in 2011, thirty six pro-suppressor laws or regulations have been enacted. Eighteen states have legalized suppressor hunting, fifteen states have passed “Shall Sign” or “Shall Certify” legislation, and three states have legalized suppressor ownership.’
Along with the ASA will be the following manufacturers;
- Dead Air
- Yankee Hill Machine
- Daniel Defense
- Sig Sauer
- Freedom Armory
- Rugged Suppressors
These manufacturers will have reps on hand along with products for you to try and answers to your questions. A special treat between 12 noon and 2pm, we will be shooting suppressed weapons without hearing protection so you can truly experience the level of sound reduction a suppressor provides. This two hour block will be open to anyone wishing to participate or witness the event. Participants can shoot any weapon/suppressor combo present or bring their own but are asked to shoot factory new ammo available here to minimize potential damage from reloads.
The fun starts at 10:00 am and runs until 5:00 pm!
