Re: Anyone using a suppressor for self defense or SHTF?

Yes, I am talking more for society is completly gone (as has happened in other countries), and I am forced to take an offensive. I never prepared by after talking with Katrina survivors I now think its a good idea. I want every advantage I can get. So the Sig 556 will run 3x or more as long as a sup...

Anyone have actual DB's of suppressed weapons?

How do you wet a suppressor to make it work better?

Anyone have DB's of various cans on a M4, Sig 556, AK47, FAL, and M1A?

Just curious the differences between them.

What DB is considered hearing safe?

Re: Anyone using a suppressor for self defense or SHTF?

The m4 will start to fail fast than an ak if things get really bad. I doubt anything will happen but it wont hurt to be prepared for a long term diaster. Katrina relief or lack of made me worried. People around me never preparedd and now it seems everyone is. At what distance does it throw the wave ...

Re: Anyone using a suppressor for self defense or SHTF?

I'd go as far as to say that's true by definition. I really can't imagine a situation where I was defending myself from people so far away that they did not realize that I was the one shooting . My bug out location is in an area that noone would go to unless they were there to loot it. I would like...

Suppressing a Glock .45, 40, or 9mm? Which caliber works bes

How do well do Glock suppress when compared to other pistols? Looking at suppressing a Glock .9mm, .40, or .45 with an AAC hearing safe can. What would the DB's be like on the 9mm, 40, and .45? I prefer a .45 but its useless to suppress it if its the same as an unsuppressed 9mm. I dont own any 9mm a...

You can't stick a can on your revolver..Everything else is just a matter of getting it threaded by a good gunsmith..All the other choices you mentioned are great hosts..Some guns come threaded already so it may make sense to do some trading on those..Just depends on how much you like them..

Re: Suppressing my .22 mag, Sig 522, and other .22's? Henry

What makes the ELEMENT better than the PILOT, AVIATOR, or PRODIGY?

How often would you clean the Element? Could I go with a cheaper can? Would the cheaper can be as durable? Can you not clean the other models? What do you do with them since you cant clean them?
