How does hunting hogs sound to you? Sound good?

Now add in silencers, night vision, thermals, and a beltfed and you'll get the idea of what Gemtech recently got into.


They headed down to Texas, because while hogs exist in 40 states (including Gemtech's native Idaho) and four Canadian provinces–nearly half of the population is rooting around down in Texas. This non-native invasive species wreaks havoc on local ecosystems and causes millions of dollars in property damage every year. Long story short: There are a lot of pigs playing in the longhorn state.

Here's the video, which is definitely worth the quick watch.

For the uninitiated, here's what Gemtech is about, in their own words:

GEMTECH began in 1993, as a supergroup of already-leading suppressor designers with roots in the silencer business going back to 1976. Mixing this old-school experience with modern CNC and robotic construction methods, honest business ethics, and a customer-first attitude, GEMTECH has grown year after year, proving itself over time while other companies with their “lifetime guarantees” came and went. You will rarely hear anything other than the highest praise for our customer service and general lack of internet drama — We do our job quietly and do it well: Designing, testing, manufacturing, servicing, and selling the best quality silencers and accessories at absolutely fair prices.

GEMTECH is in duty use around the world with many Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines of the United States military, Intelligence Community, Federal Law Enforcement, state and local peace officers, wildlife and agricultural agencies, friendly foreign military and police, and providing excellent service with tens of thousands of civilian sport shooters. We serve each part of our diverse client base to the best of our ability, and every day we come to work to help out people just like you.
