So you spend your money and wait. If you only have one, chances are that you like it. If you have more than one, you will eventually buy one that you are less than impressed with. Then what ?

Well I have several cans now and I can say that not one of mine that I'm less than impressed with. Maybe I got lucky I don't know.

Then you're pretty much stuck with it. The used market is mostly nonexistent, because it still costs the new owner $200 for the tax stamp and you can't recoup the $200 you spent on the original tax stamp.

I've never been impressed with any suppressor on a pistol. I have one that I have been using on a rimfire rifle and a 300 blackout (and there is better options for both) because I thought it was worthless on the pistols. I'm going to give it another try once I get my hands on a Henry x- rifle, but until then I wish I had spent my money else where.

You will eventually buy one that you are less than impressed with, IF you shoot enough. How many is enough? Maybe just buying a few will tell you what you like and don't. It took me about the first 3 before I could tell what was good and what wasn't.

I'm very partial to a select few for what we do! I've got a very "in depth" podcast that goes over a lot of suppressor details!

I can see this being spendy. I used to go straight to reloading or firearms and now I visit the suppressor page first!

I own the AAC Ti-Rant 45m. I attended a bachelor party where we did some shooting, there was 6-7 different pistol cans there. Two that I took notice of were the Dead Air Ghost m and the Silencerco Osprey. My opinion is that they were all louder than I wanted. That's why I'm looking to try a pistol caliber carbine and see how that performs.

My current favorite can is the AAC Titan-ti. Yes it's heavy and yes it's big, but it does an amazing job at mitigating sound and recoil from 243 win. to 338 Lapua mag.

My most shot can is the Lane Scorpion 556 (full titanium). It seems like it's just the perfect combination of size, weight, and suppression, and works equally well on ar or bolt guns.

What suppressors do you have?

Thanks for the reply, right now I have an Elite iron .223 and also their rimfire can. Have a .30 cal in jail and two Rebel .223's in jail also. Before everyone hacks me to pieces over the rebels, I plan on a write up on them and bought them for a very specific purpose.

I also have an elite iron can in 308. The nice thing with those cans is if you can't kill what you're shooting at, you can just beat it to death with the suppressor. I had never heard of Rebel Silencers. I look forward to your review.

I almost tried a Rebel 223. I'm really curious to see your write up on them.
