Gee Whiz...Nursing SHOT Hangover...

Man, I can't seem to catch up on my sleep! Maybe by tomorrow, when Alf the Wonder Beagle has to go in to get a tooth pulled. Better her than me, I suppose...

I'm working on a SHOT round-up for this week's DOWN RANGE Radio podcast. I'm definitely calling the 2012 Show the "Year of the .22 LR." I think there are several reasons, but I want to highlight and discuss 4 for Wednesday:
• The Great Ammo Shortage of 2009/10 
• Gun Culture Ver. 2.0 discovering that guns are fun to shoot
 • Enhanced training opportunities with the .22
• The canny marketing of companies like Umarex and GSG
I also want to talk about the abrupt acceptance of the .300 AAC Blackout and the "suppress everything" movement, which is now in full swing.

I'm glad to hear the 300 AAC is catching on. Looking forward to finding out who will be offering what in that chambering.

while I appreciate Robert Silvers's ability to hype/market his caliber and AAC's suppressors especially on the interent, I hope that the more discriminating gun and suppressor purchasers realize that this is just a reincarnation of the J.D. Jones created .300 Whisper. Had the internet been around 15 to 20 years ago, everybody would have Whisper/.300-221 Fireball uppers and suppressors to match. They would be asking "Blackout what?" The .300 Blackout is nothing more than an AK round with AK round like performance with a .223 headstamp. Robert will be along shortly, I reckon.
