TFB Behind the Gun #108: Chris with Yankee Hill Machine (YHM)

Suppressors are one of Pete’s favorite subjects and that’s why it’s an honor to finally present one of the best episodes recorded at SHOT Show 2024 featuring Chris with Yankee Hill Machine. Many of you know that ATF Form 4 times has taken a drastic dip in the time it takes them to be processed. A lot of speculation has been posed throughout the last couple of weeks on whether or not this pace can keep up, or if this is just a temporary boost spurred on by the government and or the pressure from the growing civilian suppressor market. Looking back at this episode recorded during the 2024 SHOT Show, it’s interesting to hear what Pete and Chris have to say about the current state of the suppressor market, and where they think it’s going this year.
