Silencerco Salvo 12While rifle and pistol silencers have largely gone mainstream in many places, shotgun suppressors have largely lived in the realms of unicorns and Hollywood. With the launch of SilencercCo's Salvo 12 this week, that era ends. Now hunters, their dogs, competitive shooters and defenders of homes everywhere can pull triggers on 12 gauges without compromising their hearing. 

A shotgun silencer not possible? Our first post on a major forum got that response. But, I'm writing this from Utah having spent two days shooting through the Salvo 12 with a select group of industry pros. NRA types, retailers and wholesalers are here along with writers, competitive shooters and shotgun manufactures. Everyone I've talked to is using words like "game changer." No blowing smoke here.

HK MR762 A1 ReviewLet’s summarize most Hecker and Koch MR762 A1 reviews so we can move on – this is a really expensive gun that’s a literal dream to shoot, has crazy sex appeal and if you can afford it you should buy it. Okay, but what can you DO with it? I’ve read something like “Woohoo, we took it to range and it’s sweet” plenty. So yeah, I took it to range at Tac Pro Shooting Center and shot 400 yards with an Aimpoint T-1. I also took it hunting. Helicopter hog hunting that is. That might just be a first.

UTS-15 LoadedAt SHWAT™ we are frequently asked “What is the best gun for hog hunting?”  The answer is always “It depends.”  If you are on a budget and need something that will do a wide variety of tasks that a firearm can be called on to do, many will tell you to go with a shotgun.  What shotgun can do almost anything from room clearing to hog hunting?  There are many, but the UTS-15 from UTAS may be one of the most versatile and well suited guns on the market.  Then again it might not be.  I’ll do my best to settle this debate for you here.
