If suppressor usage is an irrational want, then why is their use mandated by law in several European countries that regulate firearms more strictly? Because they want to encourage assassination and poaching?
Short of stereos, I am not aware of any commercial product where the end user wants it to be louder than it has to be. Personally, I shoot my suppressed rifle with earplugs as well. You are still talking 110-100 decibels at the muzzle.
I think you've been watching too many Hollywood movies Kochman.
Yeah, well, those using suppressors in Europe are so heavily restricted they can't even use their guns for self defense in their own homes... not a great example.
Think what you want, that's up to you.
Assuming knowledge of someone without having any basis for it is generally a poor technique in life...
