ASA Suppressor Shoot

The American Suppressor Association sponsored their 3rd Annual Range Day at Knob Creek Range in Westpoint, Kentucky yesterday.

Members of the ASA that were there included Sig, Dead Air, Gemtech, AAC, SilencerCo, Yankee Hill, Daniel Defense, the Silencer Shop, and Liberty Suppressors.

Knox Williams of the ASA gave out a number of awards to members. As I remember it, Vender of the Year went to the Silencer Shop, Comeback Award went to Gemtech, and Person of the Year went to Josh Waldron of SilencerCo.

We (the Complementary Spouse and I) got to shoot a number of the suppressor. Below is a video of her shooting a Ruger 10/22 with a integrally suppressed barrel from Yankee Hill Machine.

HuffPo: Rand Paul at Knob Creek

The Huffington Post reports the Republican Senate candidate Dr. Rand Paul appeared at Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot this past weekend. Interesting enough for HuffPo, they played it straight and didn’t editorialize. The comments on the other hand – well, what can you expect. The disdain shown by some is so thick that you could cut it with a stream of fire from the .50 cals in the video below.

Paul was at the event to rally support from Kentucky gun owners. He addressed supporters saying:

“I don’t have to apologize for supporting the second amendment. I support it and will continue to support it no matter what the liberals say,” the Tea Party-backed Republican told a crowd of Second Amendment devotees, according to a report from The Daily Caller.

“The president says that you’re out here in the middle of the country clinging to your guns and ammunition. What I tell the President is, ‘We’re clinging to our guns, our religions and our ammunition,'” Paul continued.
