    I opt to not use ear plugs or muffs as there's too much involved in using them when seconds count. Range, where I have all day to shoot, yes. When someone is already in the house, no.

    There's also a japanese made revo that can be silenced, but neither the one you mentioned nor the Jap one I know of are very popular with ccw'ers in the US. Thus yours as well as the jap revo mentions aren't going to help where discussion of silencing a revo for home defense is concerned.

    If I have someone break into my home I don't think it will be a time to worry about hearing protection. just my 2 cents. I think the rush will take over and you will not notice the noise.

    I don't know the science of it, but a Norma 158gr JHP out of a 2 1/2" snub M19 in a car with one window half down deafened me for 3 days. I had to lay my ear on the old Motorola speaker to hear radio calls...and it rang nonstop both ears for both of us. I had enough damage from shooting a .41 Mag already that I almost didn't pass the hearing tests for Corps and PD...but my auditory din't exclude NUTTIN'!!!

    I don't train to fight some street urchin, I train to fight the evil version of myself, and that person scares me, because I know the time I put into my training on how to beat him.

    Yeah, but the Russian design was specific to being used with a suppressor, the TR version wasn't very effective from what I've read, and was basically using what was avail.

    Well thanks for setting me straight, Captain Obvious! I just thought people might be interested in what is possible. Here are some examples of revolvers people might use for home defense that have been suppressed, and anyone could suppress with some gunsmithing:

    QSP revolver: Basically a Smith Model 10 with the barrel threaded, with a light mounted on top. This gun served well in Vietnam with both the US and Australian forces. It could easily be done today with any number of brands of wheelguns.

    Anything can be suppressed, with varying degrees of success. When we are talking about a weapon discharge in a closed space, any degree of success in lowering the decibels is going to be beneficial. Not too practical for a carry gun, but certainly a great option for home defense.

    @gasmitty already answered this one with the facts.

    I think that is the number one reason why the person defending their home winds up being shot.
    Opinions aside, the number one reason people defending their home get shot is that someone who invaded their home had a gun.

    I can see the value in having a revolver with a silencer on it for home defense.
    Uhhh....no, not exactly. Try it sometime and see how well it works.

    I don't think that there is any way to reduce the sound of an automatic pistol like the LCP is there?
    Have you ever heard of a HushPuppy? (U.S. Navy Mk 22) I've never heard one either...and I've stood right next to one, without any ear protection, being fired on a range. It was extremely effective in Vietnam. Semis, unlike revolvers, can be silenced very effectively. Take the MP-5SD for example.

    If you wear hearing protection in the first place then you might not hear where the home invader is at. Maybe the answer would be to have hearing protection that can be removed to listen but used when shooting?
    That is exactly why many of us have started using the electronic amplified hearing protectors. Put them on and forget about them. I wouldn't ever try taking hearing protection on and off when I have an intruder in my home to deal with.

    If I'm going to go to the trouble to obtain a suppressor, I'm going to get one that works, for sure, and that lets out commonly available revolvers on the market. Interesting stories, though, of what the inventors/military have tried. Only suppressor I've ever used on a revolver that worked was an old feather pillow wrapped around the whole thing...fired into a can of sand in my bedroom closet...in 1967. Had to fan like crazy to get the smell out before Mama got home.
