    Silencer/Suppressor- Guns & Ammo

    Guns & Ammo recently did a pretty sweet article on Silencers/Suppressors for Sigs. I got into basically just cause I just purchased my 1st Sig. I was wondering what folks think about Joe Schmo having that kind of equipment. I personally don't see a need or requirement to have one, but I wouldn't mind owning one. I guess just to have one. They seem pretty sweet and could make range time more exciting, be a great conversation started, etc.

    Anyone here own one? Anyone think its excessive and ridiculous short of being Mitch Rapp?

    If you do own one, what was your reasoning? Not that you owe anyone an excuse lol

    I've got that issue :) I plan on having a silenced 300 BLK when I move to a free state.

    My Sig doesn't have a threaded barrel, nor does my 9c. I wouldn't mind one on a pistol as well.

    What's the big deal? Like the article says...saves your own hearing. And reduces the noise of shooting neighbors.

    Personally I don't see needing a reason to own one. Whoever brings it up in a negative light is jealous IMO....

    Why don't we talk about the air soft operators with their top of the line equipment that people in the real world don't even have....lol. That's a good conversation.

    In Europe, it is considered rude to shoot a pistol without a suppressor...like farting in an elevator. Actually, the movie industry makes them more evil than they really are. Check out some youtube videos. There is still noise...just not ear bleeding loud.

    Wouldn't it be nice if anyone who wanted one could have one? Think of all the folks without hearing issues. I only began wearing ear protection maybe 10 years ago. Of course listening to RocknRoll for 50 years cranked probably didn't hep

    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    It's real simple - it protects one's hearing and there's no reason to restrict them. It was ignorance that classed them as NFA weapons to begin with. Anyone that would use them during a crime is going to commit the crime anyway and/or make their own.

    Since you brought it up, why would anyone think it's excessive or ridiculous? - except for the artificially exorbitant cost for a threaded tube.

    Well from the article. They are considered super expensive, "useless" I guess...and tacticool.

    Like a wannabe hitman I guess. I didn't read the whole article yet though so might be wrong.

    Just read that Sig is breaking into the market with reasonably priced silencers. Which is what they want to call them since its the legal name. Not a suppressor like Internet operators correct you with :) found that part hilarious lol.

    I'd like to have one for my 10/22, but have no real desire for any of my hand guns. Definitely not interested in the price tag or stamp.

    Same here, Tzadik. I have two Ruger 10/22's.

    The price of suppressors doesn't bother me as much as the stamp. That tends to scare the crap out of me.

    Yeah I could see myself spending a little extra if it wasn't for the stamp. I have the same fears.

    Casting gun owners in a bad light. Some gun owners think OC is a bad thing for 2A. Some gun owners might think owning a silencer is a bad thing for 2A. Kinda like being a wanna be assassin. Some kind of complex, etc.

    Yes, but in the long run we spend WAY more turning chemicals and base metals into things that go Bang!

    They are a lot of fun, always a conversation starter, and are a great training tool for starting new shooters out, especially in .22LR. The tax stamp was something like a month's pay for the average Joe in the 1930s, now its a couple of tanks of gas and a few restaurant meals dining out. Heck, before the war started there was even talk of trying to get them to transfer on a $5 AOW stamp... If you teach shooting or have another of many legit reasons you may even be able to write one off on your taxes.

    Look up Huntertown Arms, get something thats threaded and draw up a simple trust. You won't regret it.
    Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)
