No, because of the ringing in my ears.

I did just order a Mask and an Optimus though.

Swore I would never pay the $200 extortion fee but got tired of waiting. Should have mine by July.

I'm very interested in your thoughts on the Optimus when you get it. Did you go trust or individual?

I have a Silencerco Hybrid and it's a good can, but if I could do it all over again I'm not sure I would buy another. The anchor brake is amazing for recoil reduction, much better than I had hoped. However, the sound isn't the greatest (louder and higher pitched) when compared to some of the other options I have heard in person.

The Oculus rimfire can will likely be my next, but I could see a dedicated 30cal suppressor in my future.

The Optimus is lower in tone and quieter with the .223 and .308 stuff than the Hybrid.

IMO, the Hybrid is a 45/70, 45 can.

I'll let you know when I get it.

I'm not holding my breath on the HPA or the other one that supposedly incorporated similar language. However, I do have my fingers crossed. It could happen.

My next can will be a .30cal, and that probably won't wait for any action by congress. My tinnitus has gotten worse the last couple of years and it's amazing how stupid I feel for not making more of an effort to protect my hearing.
