Up next: tactical socks.
Don't know about "Up next...." 5.11 has been selling them for years now.

I was going through prison security to interview a prisoner not long ago, and the guard there advised me that I was wearing a "Tactical shirt" and they'd appreciate it if I would not wear that type of shirt next time. Prison has its own unique brand of stupid.

Tactical, as I understand it, refers to short-term planning in executing an action that supports a strategic objective.

So if you're running that pistol against a squad of terrorist squirrels, then yeah, I think the moniker fits.

So a 22 suppressed taking out the outer perimeter quitely is tactical? Sure why not either way I just like having fun shooting targets without hearing protection.
Now if the ATF would just stop being so disrespectful with their wait times!

I can tell you it works extremely well on my 10/22 with the right ammo you only hear the action.


P.S. unless you have a serviceable can with steel or titanium baffles I don't sudjest you go shooting your 22 through it.
A trick I use is to coat the baffles with anti-seize then when I get home I just wipe the 22 crud off.
sweet,
that's the kind of info I was hoping for.

I mostly want a suppressor for my .45ACP Carbine
but if I pick one up, I'll likely put a threaded barrel on my 1911 as well.
and if it works well, I'd likely use it on my MARK IV LITE (if it ever comes in)

I like the idea of the Anti-Seize for the baffles, thanks

a lot of the 5.11 TACTICAL stuff is meant for concealed carry
as well as having well designed pockets for other gear (note pad, pen, ect...)

"Hidden Document Pockets provide quick access to concealed gear, pen pockets at the left sleeve offer quick convenience"

here's some of the concealed carry shirts

I put a Dead Air Mask on mine and it's silly quiet. Quieter than my Outback IID. Never tried shooting 22LR through my Osprey 45 or Octane 45... don't see the need since I've got 22LR suppressors. I degreased and baked my baffles before quenching them in silicone oil. I clean my stacks about every 1000 rounds in my tumbler with steel pins. Comes out squeaky clean.

I'm going to try the baked silicon trick when my 22 can is approved. I wouldn't shoot a 22 through a Osprey. One reason I got the Octane was because you can break it down completely so 22 is not a issue. I have heard mixed results from the silicon bake but if your cleaning in a tumbler your going to get good results as long as someone doesn't plan on putting aluminum baffels in. Duh! Anyway a light coat of antiseiz goes a long way but really has been the best method I have found. Regardless if you don't let your stuff set for weeks and you clean when you get home from shooting then you really shouldn't have to much of a problem getting most gunk off. Every Silencer is different.

It's Tactical if

I agree with everything being called "Tactical" these days. However, the pistol must have the word "tactical"written on it with a gold color permanent marker - to make it an official tactical pistol. Said he, tongue in cheek!

I'm waiting on a Axiom they are stainless steel and titanium baffels. I prefer k baffels to monos. If it were today I'd buy different but when you buy and when you receive is a long time! Lots of things change, Plenty of 22 cans hitting the market that are all exelent.

Ruger thinks a 22 can be Tactical. My recently purchased MKIV 22/45 has "Tactical" engraved on the side of the gun.

Here's mine wearing a Specter II with a Leupold Deltapoint Pro RDS

Or does Ruger (correctly) think that engraving "Tactical" on a gun and painting it black will make it sell better?

That's the current marketing trend.
