Thread: Suppressors - Where to Start

  1. #21
    My question to OP: What are you going to shoot most?

    Buy something to support that caliber/type of shooting.

    For example, I shoot my 5.56 carbine standing, moving, close ranges etc. I don't want a long quiet can or something heavy, I want short and light. I'm wearing plugs and muffs always.

    My first can was a 9.25" ti 30cal. It turns my SBR into a musket. I have not used it in years. 300BLK subs were cool. But too expensive to shoot a lot.

    45ACP can, literally shot a few times on a handgun. Lame. Lives on a MP5, which is awesome.

    22 can was used a lot when I had a range at home. Moved. Haven't shot it in long time.

    Edit: Having land and not annoying neighbors was my reason to get suppressors. Now that I have moved, they are not used as much. There is value in a HD role, but you just need to be able to access it. Like a specific handgun+suppressors bedside safe. It's hard to have long guns laying around with kids.

    I will say that shooting 22s at night with lights was a lot of fun. It not something most folks can do all the time. I do miss the 22 pistol suppressed.

    I should sell my 30cal and get what I want, something cheap/light like the YHM K can. This 30cal would be a great suppressor for hunting... which I don't do.

    Frankly, 95%+ of my shooting is defensive pistol driven, so mostly from the holster. 5.56 is next. Weíve got a few acres and I can shoot pistol and shotgun with no problem, but rifle is limited to about 50 yards. We, as a family, havenít shot a lot of .22 in several years, but at this point Iím leaning toward making that the first because they are lower cost and gives me a way to get my feet wet.
