Running a gun with out a can is like running a car with oiut a muffler. I dont sell suppressors but i own 3 and I can not believe how much more I enjoy shooting now that I own a few.
My 45-70 was a rifle I only shot sighting in and hunting. Now I shoot it several times a month (yes I reload)
For some people it may not make as much of a difference but for me it made my hobby much more fun.
All of my suppressors are higher end suppressors (cost wise) but to me the ability to shoot with out hearing protection (at least subsonics) is worth a lot. Having a conversation while shooting with out the headache afterwords is worth every penny to me.
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.
all 25 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple
