If your NRA Family is looking for something fun to do this weekend, why not check out Smith & Wesson's historic Grand Opening event? The storied company departed its former Massachusetts headquarters for more gun-friendly climes in Tennessee, and its new headquarters will be open to the public on October 7, 2023 in Maryville, Tennessee.

Set to be an exceptional gathering of firearms enthusiasts, this event features celebrity appearances by Smith & Wesson ambassadors Jerry Miculek and Julie Golob, as well as "Duck Dynasty" star Uncle Si. (Tickets are $25 for people 12 and older--find out more here!)

Attendees will also have a chance to experience Silencer Central's top-notch products and an unparalleled purchasing experience. The company will be present at the Gemtech Suppressor booth, where attendees can experience a simplified and efficient process to fulfill their silencer orders, mirroring the convenience that Silencer Central offers at over 150 events nationwide. 

Silencer Central’s team of experts will be on hand to assist customers with any questions and guide them through the purchasing process. This includes helping with ATF paperwork, fingerprinting and passport photos, streamlining the often complex procedure of acquiring a suppressor.

"Silencer Central is honored to be part of the Smith & Wesson Grand Opening event," said Brandon Maddox, CEO of Silencer Central. "We are excited to bring our expertise and user-friendly process to the Gemtech Suppressor booth, ensuring attendees can easily and legally acquire the suppressors they desire."
