I won another contest! And once again, I couldn't have done it without my Facebook friends. Really! I needed to get the most 'likes' on my entry and I somehow convinced enough people to help me in a silencer.

Oh yeah, have you ever heard of someone winning a silencer? Now you have!

SilencerCo held a contest to give away their new Stainless Steel 22Sparrow. All you had to do was make a video showing why, then they pick the four finalists for all of Facebook to vote on. 

Here's my entry:

When voting started, I thought I had this one in the bag, but that wasn't the case. I led the polls for just a little bit in the beginning but was quickly in second place until the very end. A really close call!

Ok, I won a silencer so now what? I have to fill out some forms and pay the government tax stamp, then I wait. Waiting for your paperwork to go through can sometimes take a while, or so I'm told.  That's ok though because my current .22 doesn't have a threaded barrel so I'm looking to replace it with one that does. I have a few ideas but I'm going to ask SilencerCo what they recommend for the 22Sparrow.

This is my first suppressor and I'm super excited about it! A lot of people have been asking me 'why' and I have a simple 4 bullet point answer:

- Increased accuracy
- Hearing protection
- Home protection
- It's my right and I choose to exercise my right.
