AUSTIN, TX – The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is pleased to announce that Silencer Shop, the largest suppressor distributor in the United States, has renewed their sponsorship of the American Suppressor Association to ASA’s Tier 1 level for 2020. Their renewal makes Silencer Shop the Association’s top sponsor.

"Silencer Shop is excited to build upon our relationship with the ASA. It is more important than ever that we take action to keep our rights intact. We are proud supporters of the ASA,”

— Dave Matheny, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Silencer Shop.

The idea to create Silencer Shop came to Dave Matheny after two failed attempts to purchase a suppressor. With over 20 years of experience as a software engineer, Matheny formed his company with one goal in mind: utilizing technology to simplify the buying process for consumers. Silencer Shop has since become one of the largest suppressor distributors 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 in 2015, Silencer Shop has consistently served as one of the premier advocates for pro-suppressor reform,” said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of ASA. “Silencer Shop’s support is not limited to financial investment; we have spent countless hours with Dave working the halls of Congress and state legislatures. Through his leadership, Silencer Shop has become one of the most active organizations in the pro-suppressor arena. We look forward to working with Dave and his team, as we continue our push to protect and expand suppressor rights nationwide.”


About The American Suppressor Association

The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is the unified voice of the suppressor community. We exist for one reason and one reason only: to fight for pro-suppressor reform nationwide.

The ability of the American Suppressor Association to fight for pro-suppressor reform is tied directly to our ability to fundraise. Since the ASA’s formation in 2011, 3 states have legalized suppressor ownership and 18 states have legalized suppressor hunting. Much of this would not have happened without your support.
