SILENCER SATURDAY #42: Secret Spy Tech And Rimfire Metering

Good afternoon shooters and welcome back to TFB’s Silencer Saturday, where all firearms are meant to be seen, not heard. Today we dive into the rimfire world with a look at some secret spy tech: a very unique, purpose built silencer from Tornado Technologies. And we’ll also take a look at a lesser known silencer company that deserves your attention: the United Armament Corporation and their Hollywood and Hollywood Lite rimfire silencers. Because suppressed rimfire shooting is some of the most fun you can have with your pants on (if you shoot pants-less, I’d rather not know), we will have additional episodes of Rimfire Metering before the end of the year.

Some of my favorite silencers and host setups are those that are built with a specific purpose in mind. The classic Welrod and its modern day equivalent the B&T VP9 come to mind. But as we try to “normalize” silencers and change the public’s perception from Hollywood assassin weapons to standard safety devices, discussing pseudo spy tech can be tricky.

In the end, unique silencers that are small, use wipes and ablative media or are built with a non-standard appearance are interesting additions to a collection.
