    Default Marines Getting Silencers

    Marine Corps begins fielding rifle suppressors to infantry units
    By Mike Glenn - The Washington Times - Wednesday, December 30, 2020

    The Marine Corps has begun equipping its mainline infantry units with the same type of small arms suppressors used by elite commando units such as the Navy SEALS and Delta Force.

    Suppressors are designed to reduce a weapon*s noise, flash and recoil, allowing combat units to avoid detection while firing on enemy positions. This month, Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC) began sending out thousands of them to infantry Marines in addition to troops assigned to special operations and reconnaissance units

    Using suppressors on a battlefield may also benefit the long-term health of a Marine, MCSC officials said.

    "In the big picture, the VA pays out a lot in hearing loss claims," Maj. Brisker said. "We*d like Marines to be able to continue to hear for many years even after they leave the service."

    The Marine Corps Has Started Fielding 30,000 Rifle Suppressors to Combat Units
    By Matthew Cox - Military.com - 29 Dec 2020

    After years of planning, infantry Marines are finally getting their hands on small arms suppressors aimed at helping combat units avoid detection while firing on enemy positions.

    Marine Corps Systems Command began fielding the first 13,700 Knight's Armament Company suppressors designed for M4 and M4A1 carbines and M27 infantry automatic rifles to Marines at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. The command hopes to field approximately 30,000 of the devices by fiscal year 2023.

    What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms!

    Hmmmm....this could go either way. Suppressors save hearing finally gets approval for civilians, or, Biden, Schumer and ilk will say this proves suppressors are implements of war.
    There are only two kinds of guns. Those I have and those I want.

    FP 2: Yes it is windy.
    FP 3: I thought it was Thursday.

    My first thought as well. 'Civilians' don't need these...
