I can see how this would reduce the amount of noise to be heard by neighbors. It would be something like firing from inside the building.

While it may make shooting quieter, it does not make it safer. These contraptions have the potential to reduce visibility for the shooter and to conceal from observers the behavior of the shooter.

Couple that reduced visibility with the less formal safety regulations one may see at private ranges, and you have a recipe for tragedy.
