AUSTIN, TX – The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is pleased to announce that Silencer Shop is the newest Tier One Sponsor of the ASA. With their contribution, Silencer Shop joins the ranks of SilencerCo and AcuSport as one of ASA’s three Tier One Sponsors for 2015.

In January, Dave Matheny, owner of Silencer Shop, was elected as a new member to the ASA Board of Directors. Matheny has over 20 years of experience as a software engineer. After two failed attempts to purchase a suppressor, he formed Silencer Shop with the primary goal of simplifying the buying process for consumers. Silencer Shop has since become the largest suppressor dealer in the country by maintaining a steady focus on providing excellent customer service and great prices, as well as constant improvements to internal efficiencies and processes.

“Since joining the American Suppressor Association, Silencer Shop has already become a major player in suppressor advocacy,” said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of ASA. “Their technological background makes them a unique ally in our fight to advance suppressor rights across the country. Utilizing their expertise, our association will become much more streamlined and effective in our efforts. We look forward to working with Dave and his team, as we continue to push pro-suppressor legislation on both the State and Federal levels.”

Based in Austin, Texas, Silencer Shop is a nationwide dealer of firearm suppressors. To learn more about Silencer Shop, visit them online at


The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is the unified voice of the suppressor industry. Our mission is to unite and advocate for the common interests of suppressor manufacturers, distribu­tors, dealers, and consumers. To accomplish our mission, our principal initiatives focus on state lobbying, federal lobbying, public education, and industry research.

The ability of the American Suppressor Association to operate and advocate for pro-suppressor reform is tied directly to our ability to fundraise.
