So you have been having congigal visits with it at your FFL?

Yes, I have and they have been much needed over this 18 month wait time!   I’d post a video here but clueless how to do that.  My favorite is shooting my Mac m10 and the m16 at the same time for a mag dump 😁

😀 It's Christmas time in March! Called BATF Jan 26th. Said it was approved on the 25th with stamp to go out to FFL soon. Check cashed March 25, 2018. Eleven months total. Add two months for FFL to get the suppressor. Two weeks for mailing forms to ATF and check cashed, a couple of weeks for tax stamp to make it to the FFL brings total wait time to approx. 14 months. I'm stoked to get to the range. Never shot a suppressed gun before.

Thankfully, it was approved about 2 weeks after I made this post.  I have been finger banging her every night.

Opps, typed wrong date in previous post. Called ATF on Feb 26th. Anyway correct on time frame of 11 months for approval after check cashed. Still waiting on tax stamp to get to dealer. Could have knocked some wait time off if I purchased an in-stock supressor. Don't think my FFL keeps many suppressors in stock and certainly did not have an Rugged Obsidian 9.

F3 shouldn't have taken that long.

      Well, got another one!  Took my dad out shooting, after shooting the mac m10 and the colt M16, he is hooked.  We shot Saturday, and by monday night I had found and purchased him a like new mac m10.  He decided on the M10, because he can just use all of my accessories and uppers that I have accumulated for mine over the years.  I also have a new upper in the works for this thing.  As basic as the macs are, they have become a transferable sear pack. At 1/3 the price of a trany m16, they have really become a hot item.   There is just something about that full auto experience and I love letting people shoot them.

      Some company in Idaho recently started appearing in my googleads.... I've got to admit, for 60 bucks, I'm tempted to try one. Perhaps it will improve the ahhh, fuel economy? Anyone here ever try one out?

      I recently picked up a 10.5” 5.56 to use as a truck/critter gun and possibly for home duties. I live out in the sticks with no neighbors so it’s nice to have a small rifle ready to go for anything that may come up. Now to the question:
      I currently have an AAC 7.62 SD on  .308 and am considering getting a QD flash hider for the 5.56 for double duty. From what I see I’m not sure the suppressor will have much perceived benefit on reducing the possible hearing damage. I’ll use ear pro outside of any bump in the night situations where I don’t have time to put on the muffs. 
       
      Second part:  I don’t want to mess with an adjustable gas block. I currently have an F marked block installed with a larger gas port similar to the MK18. I like the fixed sight so I’m also wondering if the gas will be intolerable by suppressing an already over gassed rifle. 
       
      My goal is to reduce any permanent hearing damage. If it’s way too much expense, added weight, and overall trouble trying to obtain a minimal result then I’ll hold off. I love the way this thing is balanced without a suppressor.
