ASA’s Silencer Stache Competition (Week 6)

LIP RUG, d.B. – Over the past five weeks, the ASA Silencer Stache Competition has produced some amazing feats of facial hair. With the Sultan of Silence and Muffled Mustache Rounds in the books, we are one week away from finding out who will reign supreme as the coolest (and quietest) mustachio in the industry!

In the Maxim Winner’s Bracket, Zak Keehn of Rugged Suppressors was neck and neck with Jim Hood of Elevated Silence throughout the Sultan of Silence Round. In the final day, Jim Hood took the lead, securing the victory and winning the title of the Sultan of Silence.

Although Zak lost the matchup, he’s going home as the winner of the Hiram Percy Maxim Bronze Mustache Award! With a stache like Zak’s, HPM would certainly be proud!

The Roosevelt Consolation Bracket hosted an exciting round as well! In the end, Reptilia Ringer Taylor Welden ran away with the competition, besting Sig Sauer icon John Hollister, rumored to be a direct descendant of Hiram Maxim, ASA’s Chief Mustache Officer Knox Williams, and CSF Mustachio Brad Franklin. With the victory, Taylor won the title of the Muffled Mustache, securing his spot in the Final Stachedown!

The ASA Silencer Stache Competition will conclude at 11:59 PM EDT on Thursday, June 12th. Votes will be tallied, and the winner will be announced!
