Advanced Armament Corp (AAC) sighted in Minnesota

Yesterday I and a few others members of my unit got the chance to pre-shoot Outbreak Omega. The zombie-themed 3-gun shoot is hosted by Ahlman's in Morristown and sponsored by a number of big industry names, including Advanced Armament Corp out of Georgia. John Hollister was there demoing a number of AAC products, both loud and quiet.

As far as I an aware, this was the first public demonstration of silencers (AAC's preferred name for the device) in Minnesota.

The sound level on the suppressed pistols was little more than the action moving, while the suppressed rifles with supersonic rounds were much louder but not enough to require hearing protection. Everyone who fired a suppressed gun for the first time came away with a big grin, which is why we're winning.
