    Zak's been busy. His suppressor company has grown to around 40 employees so he's not moderating all that much any more, but I'm happy for him. (He also teaches a solid long-range shooting school that's now teaching in New Mexico, rather than in Wyoming where it was when I went.)

    Anyway, ThunderBeast makes no-compromise suppressors designed for precision applications. It was nice to catch up.

    The big news this year: TBAC has enough capacity to fill orders immediately. Most exciting to me was last years' news that there's now a 6.5mm can available, the Ultra.

    Centerfire suppressors are available in 5, 7, and 9 inch lengths. The longer the can, the better the performance and the higher the weight. Max length for the .223 is 7 inches, and the full auto can is what it is (and has always been) because dealing with heat from full-auto SBRs has its own sets of demands.

    If you've got older models like the 30P-1 then you should know the newer models are a few decibels quieter, and flash suppressor adapters as shown in these photos are now available.

    Been waiting on approval for mine since July.


    As Tom Petty says, waiting is the hardest part.
