    I'd venture to say most people who post in this particular forum would be vehemently opposed to Canadian-style gun control laws, which I fully support. Anyone here like to see a full ban on automatic weapons, no carry allowed except for LEOs and extremely stringent requirements on transport and use of handguns?

    So yeah, if my views are not polar opposite they are certainly contrary to most here.

    They use them here in the UK on rifles for vermin control.

    Because if you are shooting loud rifles at a private firing range in America. (My family has one) the neighbors hate the noise of gunshoots. A suppressor will knock down the decible level making the shooting much less intrusive. It's noise abatement.

    Not to mention easier on the ol' timpanic membranes of the end user.

    Just another perfectly decent ergonomic safety feature (like heat shields and forward pistol grips) demonized because someone got scared by a movie (or television) depiction.

    Thing is. It's not like the movies where a suppressor makes you a totally silent "death machine". Some people have seen one too many movies where "silenced" weapons just go "pffft...pfft!". It's the same thing with states that outlaw "flash suppressors"...ignorant masses pressuring ignorant politicians who pass ignorant law.

    I've heard a "hush puppy"...(suppressed Ruger semi auto .22, subsonic ammo) fired. The action clacking was about as loud as the shot. I was told that it was possible to suppress action noise as well, but reliability was not as good, however, it would still make noise. A specialty weapon for sure...

    IIRC the Navy Seals developed 9mm Sig pistol modified with a "lockable" action so the slide would not move upon firing. That and a suppressor made it so the only report was from gas exiting the barrel which was further mitigated by subsonic ammo loads.

    Laymans terms; a "straight pull" single action pistol that was about as silent as these things could be made.

    Not terribly suitable for home defense but an interesting bit of firearms trivia. A similarly silent gun would be a Nagant pistol with a suppressor. But those things suck (obsolescent even in it's own time).

    I've shot CB caps in my Ruger 10/22 for back-yard squirrel suppression. Damn near silent, not any louder than a .22 cal air rifle, really, or less so depending on how powerful the air rifle is set. The action of the 10/22 wouldn't move at all with the CB caps.

    Great for those small, aggressive, invasive species dropping Hackberry "berries" all over your deck and hot tub. Bastards...

    A .22 or even a handgun are one thing...a rifle is another. I shoot a suppressed AR quite frequently. It's not like folks are not gonna know someone is shooting at them. Your hearing just wont get fucked up like it would without it.

    A little gun porn of my militarized ass:



    Just to show off a little. :)

    The first time I fired 5.56 nato from a pistol was a bit of a surprise. Made my ears ring even with plugs. Fricknig thing was a winning argument for full cover ear protection!
