TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #121: Ryan from Silencer Central

Silencers have been the talk of the NFA town for the last couple of months. This is largely due to the massive wait times we saw before seemingly disappearing overnight leaving most of us with much more manageable e-form 4 processing times of about a week or less. This has sent ripples through the suppressor and firearm world leading to a bum-rush on all sorts of muzzle devices and suppressor manufacturers desperately trying to keep up with the increased demand that this rare NFA win has given the gun community. We’ve brought on Silencer Central CEO Brandon Maddox in the past to talk shop with Pete, but this time we’re bringing on Ryan H with Sielcner Central to talk about what he’s seen behind the scenes when it comes to selling suppressors in this new era. Today we’ll talk about all things silencers, how easy it is now to complete the process, and also talk a bit about Silencer Central’s own line of suppressors in the Banish series.

TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #121: Buying a Silencer is Easier Than Ever w/ Ryan from Silencer Central

In this week’s episode of TFB’s Behind the Gun Podcast, we’ve brought on one of the core members of the Silencer Central team, Ryan H, to talk about what he’s recently seen in the suppressor industry. The ATF has recently decreased wait times for e-form 4’s to about a week or so and this has led many who previously would not buy suppressors to suddenly want one. This has led to virtually every suppressor manufacturer and muzzle device manufacturer running out of stock. Today we’ll talk about whether or not this is a good thing overall for both manufacturers and customers, and also what Ryan thinks the suppressor landscape is going to look like going forward as people start getting their first suppressors - is that where it ends for most people? Find out today in this episode of TFB’s Behind The Gun Podcast featuring Ryan H from Silencer Central!
