We don’t know about you, but we don’t really need any more reasons to own a suppressor. BUT! Since you can never really have too many reasons, here are a couple more courtesy of American Hunter:
5. You’ll spook less game.
Have you ever been hog hunting and saw three hogs, but only got one because the other two hogs ran off when you fired? With a suppressor there’s a greater chance you can knock all three of them down. If you want the ultimate in spook-less shooting, use sub-sonic ammo. Ifdeer are more your bag, being able to shoot does for management without making the bucks go as nocturnal as vampire bats is worth the $200, albeit ridiculous, tax stamp to me.
4. They can save your ears.
It’s like a muffler for your gun; hearing protection that you make your rifle wear at all times so you can forget yours. After all, if I lose my hearing now due to repeated gunfire, I won’t be able to hear them announce my winning numbers at the bingo hall later on in life. Silencer owners are winners. Remember that.
3. Happy neighbors make happy hunters.
Most of us just want to live and hunt in peace. If we never see a Bambi-hugging neighbor who rushes to the sound of our gunshots and attempts CPR on our dying venison, we’d be peachy. Reality is, most land owners and Americans aren’t anti-gun, they’re just anti-getting-rocked-off-the-rocking-chair-while-they-watch-Tom-Selleck-do-his-thing-in-Blue Bloods. Perhaps you can’t help it that your hard-earned five acres in the country butts up to Mrs. Wallace’s living room window, but if you choose to, you can help limit th noise produced from your 7mm shoulder cannon. It’s called a silencer. Check them out on the Internet.
