I got email about one I had on wish list in stock.  Two hours after email it was already out of stock.   I've seen several in stock.  Wanted to think about it and out next day.   So guess they sale faster than I though.

Its funny, I don't even have a trust yet but the thought of making one is enough to start thinking about a suppressor... realized that if I SBR the PS90 I'll have a threaded barrel, I'll be able to put a suppressor on it and swap it back and forth between the PS90 and the Tavor!
I have a few guns.

Interesting, particularly in that this averages out to 1 suppressor for every 600 Americans. 
I'm guessing some, like Michael Bloomberg,
may not be happy with that %.

Time to pressure the politicos to get suppressors off all the restriction and really make it mainstream and affordable

A lot of 5 month stamps lately.   At least what the NFA forums are showing.  I'm hoping for 8 1/2 or less to be here for my b day.
