Reader Question: “What 308 ammo is safe to use in a suppressor?”

Reader Question: “What 308 ammo is safe to use in a suppressor?”

A Reader Asked me:

“What 308 ammo is safe to use in a suppressor?”

Using the TDI Law Enforcement Knife for Weapon Retention

Using the TDI Law Enforcement Knife for Weapon Retention

  • Comes in large models as well for open carriers.
  • It can be easily deployed from either hand and from multiple…
