Hey TFB readers- the internet connection here is sparse so I’m going with a live blog approach. Dinner has started and so the announcement is happening at 7PM ET. I’m going to live blog here so come back soon and refresh this page for updates.

I’ll include pictures and other media as fast as I can put it up!

Original post for reference:

(reverse chronological order)

9/16/15 update: Post on the new Maxim 9 integrally suppressed pistol.

[7:30PM ET] – So while I can’t post any pictures or videos, I will give you a high level teaser. Our of the four products announced, two are nice and interesting but the other two are the ones noteworthy. I can’t give out any more details than that but one fits within the SilencerCo family of products and the other is outside their core competency but is pretty darn awesome.

[7:15PM ET] – No pictures and I can’t go into details, but we just started going into the SWR (SilencerCo Weapons Research) video that you’ve seen in my earlier TFB post.

[7:04PM ET] – Really sad news, they are putting a media embargo on everything until 9AM ET Wednesday. I just found this out at this moment, so I’ll be taking pictures and videos and such but you won’t be able to see them until Wed. My apologies for the delay, I was really hoping to share things with you tonight but you’re going to have to wait until Wed. We’ll be shooting these products out in international waters on a boat tomorrow, so I’ll be sure to get some great footage.

CEO Josh Waldron addressing the group.

[7:00PM ET] – Things are starting! They are announcing four new products, some available in October. They are talking about background on the history of SilencerCo and such.

[6:49PM ET] – Pictures from the Waldorf Astoria in Key West, Florida at the launch event. There are four pedestals with sheets over them. Should be the new products!

    ... One is a HUD... Built into shooting goggles and or glasses...
    as far as thermal goes, I'd almost bet on it making an appearance since the imager everyone is putting in low cost products actually gives you a level of added display functionality that even 3 years ago would have cost 5 digits just for the hardware and another 5 for slothware that would've provided 15% of the functionality at 100+ times the power consumption and overheating issues!
    now you get all that for what just barely breaks into the 3 figure dollar mark even buying singles ... Oh and as an added bonus you get a freakishly small, wattage sipping, shockingly capable uncooled thermal imaging sensor!!!

      most thermal imaging sensors require cooling.....
      I was referring specifically to extremely high end defense grade sensors on things like seeker heads hunter killer sights etc....
      The way I've always understood it I you get finer resolution on smaller temperature gradients and something about lower noise floor....
      however when it comes to the whole HMD, augmented reality, and wearables deal whether milspec or not I've been watching and waiting for the day I could get my Ingram smart gun since junior high
