    I believe this to be our greatest weakness. The fact that some of our own believe in the idea that a person should have to show a need to own something. We are our own worst enemy. The other side is united in its one goal to ban all firearms. We are divided into groups willing to give up the firearms that those crazy folks like to shoot. For clarification the guns those crazy people shoot are any gun that I don't like to shoot. Take theirs but leave mine alone syndrome.

    I got into some pretty hot discussions on this forum because people had the nerve to post almost exactly what you are talkign about.

    There are lots of people in this world with limited mentalitys. This forum is no different.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    While I generally favor shotguns for home defense, a suppressed rifle has a lot going for it.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

Open the 2nd floor bedroom window to see a huge raccoon on duck pen roof, chewing away on the duck he just killed and dragged up there. The raccoon is not concerned at all about the swearing or bright light we're shining on him as he just sits there eating the duck.

    Time to slap a magazine into an AR...

    Now I can do one of the following:

    1) Twist a can onto the end of the barrel, light that raccoon up with the laser and hope he enjoyed his last meal. I then go back to bed with the understanding that I've got some clean-up work when the sun comes up.... or....

    2) Forget about the can, wake up some neighbors, deal with the police after they respond to half a dozen calls reporting a gun shot, get no more sleep... and STILL have to clean up the deceased critters.

    I'll take option #1 please.
    Option #1..... Lol

    Speaking of folks who disapprove of suppressors, why is it that as soon as we attach something as harmless as an acoustic devise, an ACOUSTIC DEVICE, to a firearm, it suddenly & immediately becomes a frightening tool of mayhem used only for the most devious felonies imaginable? What we need is a Chuckle Head vaccine!

    It is silly. 'Sort of like needing a tax stamp in order to use ear protection. Dang, I probably shouldn't have said that out-loud...

    In Europe the use of Suppressor when shooting is highly encouraged. In fact, they can buy them at hardware stores for about 1/10th what they cost here in the states. No paperwork hassles, no signoff,no tax stamps, you just walk in a plop down your money.

    Thats about the only thing that they have us beat on.

    Yeah, a foolish friend of mine bought a factory Walther suppressor for his P22 from Europe over the internet & had it air-shipped directly to his house. He also said the shiny flashed badges from the pair dark-suited BATF agents that soon showed-up at his door looked as big as chrome truck wheels! No jail time but it was a frightening & quite expensive ordeal. Well over $200 worth of ass cramp.

    I have a Sparrow for my P22.

    O.K.,
    so realistically, how quiet are those things?

    Of those that have them, let us know if they do the job.

    In my opinion, my Sparrow makes a .22 sound like a heavy air gun.
    My Osptey drops. 45acp, .40 & 9mm down close to a .22.
    It is NOT lile in the movies.

    Love the idea of a suppressor. Is a different stamp required for each suppressor? Are suppressors interchangeable across calibers (guessing not)?
