  1. It never ceases to amaze me how many people who should know better tell people that if they use a suppressor on their rifle, they can shoot it without hearing protection.

    Yes, you can.

    But should you? NO!

    They forgot the level of riding in a Jeep?

    The pitch change of the shot is also something that many people neglect in a suppressor purchase. Classic example for me is comparing the old Knight’s 5.56 can to the SureFire can that replaced it… sure the SureFire is quieter by a dB or two when tested – the Knight’s can was infinitely more comfortable for me to shoot, however!

    It’s too bad in-person side-by-side comparisons aren’t exactly the easiest thing to come by, in real life =/

    What about combined use with subsonic rounds? Would they then be ear-safe?

    What is “average” gunshot though? What caliber are we talking?
