Silencer Central CEO's Quiet Rise to the Top

Silencer Central CEO Brandon Maddox shares how he demystified suppressor-buying and created his not-so-secret process of hassle-free ownership.

posted on February 9, 2023

If you could buy a suppressor and take possession of it in a fraction of the time it usually takes, delivered your front door—yes, to your home address—with minimal hassle and inconvenience of the dreaded NFA process, would you go forward with it? The fact is, that’s how things happen when you purchase a silencer from Silencer Central, the United States’ fastest-growing suppressor manufacturer. The genius behind this stress-free buying process is CEO Brandon Maddox, who developed an innovative, legal method of shortening the historically lengthy silencer-buying process (as long as you live in one of the 42 states where they are legal to own). Basically, Silencer Central does most of the paperwork for you. It sounds almost too good to be true, but it’s 100 percent legitimate, and thousands of new suppressor owners can vouch for the process.

So who is Brandon Maddox and how did he demystify suppressor-buying while developing a method of getting one in your hands faster and easier than ever before? NRA’s America’s 1st Freedom Editor-in-Chief Frank Miniter sat down with Maddox at the 2023 SHOT Show to unlock the secrets of this process.
