My Class III dealer neighbor and his two sons seem to really enjoy their toys and the two boys are safer than many adults I know, but their Dad has spent a lot of time with them and it shows both in their manners and gun handling.
What does BS stand for? Maybe its just the way I am reading it, but I though you mentioned language, strict, and you enjoying enforcement.

I started to delete this, but it says so much about your intelligence level I'm going to leave it, if you can't figure the difference in what I'm talking about then folks need to know.

I am running a Steel spacer that came on a .22 AR , seems to work fine and I didn't have to order anything.

I'm curentlly running a Huntertown Guardian on my 22's. They are a very good suppressor for those who are wanting to get there feet wet. they are $200 plus the $200 tax stamp. It is the First suppressor that I own, but not the first one that I have used.

Well, that's a rude thing to say to me.

My LGS got a Hunters Town sample in and they said it was pretty crummy.

I have high hopes for the TM ZXL. I got a good deal at 220, and it looks very well made. I really like the new mono baffle design. It is even quieter than the older model

I like that design as well, it would make cleaning a breeze. Good luck on your wait pyro, I'm on month 5 for my 9mm suppressor. Will you be using yours on any pistols or just the rifles?

Spacers and TM CHD

You can get some spacers at silencerstore.com. I bought a 3 pack after hearing folks had problems with the FVSR having AR length threads. I wonder if that was an issue with the early ones. My FVSR threads are no longer than the threads on my pistols.

BTW, I have the Thompson Machine CHD. It will make you giggle like a little girl... (Dang sight cheaper than most others at $240.00. Take apart monocore and scaled to look right on a .22 AR but on the FVSR looks like 70s era gun pron)

Be careful with whatever you buy. It's like eating potato chips. On my third stamp now and I am just a lighweight compared to others I know. Half way through my 7 month wait for my next can....

Crush Washer Warning

You do not want to use crush washers with a suppressor. A crush washer has potential to force a mis-alignment of the bore with the can which will cause baffle strikes. If you don't believe me, go take a look over at silencertalk.com or nfatalk.com. You may be one of the lucky ones that doesn't have problems but it's not worth the loss of a can and all the time and money. Properly made spacers are the way to go if you are using a .22 can on an AR length threaded barrel. Standard AR threads are .600 long where most .22 suppressors are designed for .400 so you will need a .200 spacer. A crush washer is only a fraction of that.

Sounds great. The guy who makes them was having a sale, I picked it up for $65 instead of the $150 retail (no tax stamp required either).
