    Picks of your suppressed Firearms....

    Ok I'll start it off. Currently this is my one and only NFA class weapon, a wealther P22 with suppresser, scope mount, and red dot. My next will be either a 9mm suppresser or a SBR AR-15. So post your suppressed firearms.



    Ops! Title should say Pics...

They add length/size & weight to any gun making true total concealed carry more difficult and take a few seconds to screw/pop one on even with practice. Some (older) models I've seen used actually slow or change the trajectory (spin) of the round as it exits the gun. Miss! The S. Korean ones are prone to explode, saw that mess @ a range outside of Camp Page during Team Spirit '84, blew the ROK's eye to bits! Granted these R not those kim-chee abominations. For hunting I can see U not wanting 2 spook other game, but for CQC I just see them as a way 2 slow me down. Not blasting the concept so please don't flame me too badly, I just don't understand what edge one gives me running into a BG, and I can think of several legal ones it screws me with BAD here in WA if I use one or get caught with one in my carry-gear/reach.

    (The 2 states of WA deal again I guess but per a chat with a Sr. Spokane cop I had over this: "Major probs if U use one here, or much less if U don't inside this city!) Granted these R NOT RCW's or laws (yet) but they R the training media and official guidance given to our P & S B 4 they hit the beat so if they see one they will probably pounce.
    I think they are cool and have a bona-fide use, but most of those seem to fade to black-ops.
    Enlighten me please,

    I agree that for me it is not practical to carry a suppressed weapon, let alone my suppressed .22, but it is a great way to avoid having to wear ear plugs or muffs. I bought mine mainly as an investment and a way to shoot without having to wear hearing protection. And of course they are just a blast to shoot.

    Even though that appears in a police training bulletin, that is factually inaccurate.

    Washington law states that use of a suppressor is a misdemeanor offense - see the above link.

    It is lawful to possess a suppressor (assuming you've jumped through all the federal hoops).

    It is lawful to carry a suppressor around.

    It is lawful to attach a suppressor to your firearm.

    It is not lawful to propel bullets through a suppressor.

    There are many good legit applications that a suppressor is good for. Here are a few:

    1. An investment just like many other firearms. You think the value will go up is Obama gets in office??
    2. I've taken new shooters to the range and they loved shooting the 22. because it wasn't noisy or kicked hard. Since then they have come back several times. So it help new people get into the sport.
    3. Say you have a basement. Whats stopping you from making your own little indoor range? Noise? not an issue.
    4. Say you want to shoot in your back yard but its either to early or to late for all that noise. Problem solved.
    5. Say you have a garden or just some rodents you need to get off your property or out of your garden. Now you can without bugging anyone around.
    6. I personally love shooting mine something about hearing the bullet hit the target/back stop is just fun.
    7. Well, they just look cool
    8. I can sooooo why not?

    Just a few reasons.

    Should neighbors and other citizens wear ear plugs because you have a weapon and may fire it ?

    Suppressors are used to reduce noise

    same way a muffler is on a car, truck or bike

    How about your neighbors or bike riders cut off their mufflers and drive by your property all hours of the day ?

    Personally I like the ones that you used to see in the movies and t.v. You know those revolvers with a silencer on them.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

    Pardon me if my question sounds dumb, because I have never shot a suppressed gun. I'm wondering if suppressors can also reduce felt recoil.
