general suppressor questions
I know next to nothing about suppressors.
My primary interest in them is in home defense.
If you had to fire your weapon indoors it would be deafening.
I understand the laws regarding suppressors.
Can they be used on different weapons or is a suppressor on a 9mm only going to work on a 9mm?
How about from a rifle to a pistol caliber? Can they be used on different weapons?
Can an auto-pistol just have the barrel swapped out for a threaded barrel?
How about a rifle?
Sorry for the naiive Q's but I'm just thinking out loud here.
Saving your life by using a weapon indoors if it's the only option is no doubt the best decision if you value your life. However, you may then be left with a life time of hearing loss or ringing ears. So if I end up looking into this more, I'd want to buy one that would serve multiple purposes if possible.
If I'm over estimating the hearing loss from a home defense shooting, let me know that as well.
No brass. No ammo.
