It is no secret that I am a gun junkie. It’s also no secret that I am in the gun business as a manufacturer and a dealer. Pictured above is an FN Patrol Bolt in .308 that has been integrally suppressed by John’s Guns, a Dark Horse Arms company. It is designed to use sub-sonic ammunition for the perfect combination of power and stealth. Sounds about like taking an air wrench off a compressor when fired. There are many uses for a suppressed (silenced) weapon: hearing protection of yourself and others, not disturbing the neighbors, not startling adjacent wildlife. Varmint control, especially wild hogs, is top of the list with something like this.
