Silencer Central has made the 2022 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, according to an email sent out by Inc. Media's editor in chief. The company emerged in 2005 as one of the first re-sellers of suppressors in the country, and more than 15 years later, Silencer Central has quickly become one of the leading providers and producers of suppressors in the nation.

Part of the company's incredible growth over the last few years stems from its innovative buying process spearheaded by the company's CEO, Brandon Maddox. A former pharmacist, Maddox's journey began after his local gun shop tried to talk him out of buying a suppressor because of all the paperwork involved. He knew there had to be a better way.

Now, Silencer Central is licensed to sell suppressors in every state where they're legal, and the company's process is easy to use, making it simpler than ever to buy a suppressor. Company employees walk you through the process, as outlined in our feature article, "Silencer Central: Suppressor Buying Simplified." Once the suppressor selection, paperwork, fingerprinting and other necessary steps are completed, the company can then send suppressors directly to the doors of approved buyers, thanks to its 42 satellite locations, one in every state where suppressors are legal.

Given the growing interest in suppressor ownership and the streamlined process pioneered by Silencer Central, it's no wonder the company has made the list of the nation's 5,000 fastest-growing companies. For more details on how the company's process, visit
