The third gun store in Newington is also on the Berlin Turnpike, up the road a ways from Hoffman’s. If you miss the self-propelled howitzer guarding the entrance to the parking lot, the big signs should still catch your eye:
Suppressors/silencers have been around a long time. There are many reasons to lower the noise signature of a gun, some tactical, some practical. And there are some disadvantages to it as well.

I’ve been debating as to whether I/we should post on this, as it really isn’t what we’ve focused our blog upon, and came to the conclusion that there were things that I want to say.
First, and most importantly, my heartfelt condolences go out the the family, friends, and co-workers of the victims of this terrible crime.
