    Default latest NRA magazine

    Got me thinking of buying a suppressor for my hunting rifle, how many of you use the suppressors and which one? Im leaning toward the saker in 7.62. Now what mount? better yet which suppressor mount combo is more accurate?

    Slight hijack (sorry, I can't resist): I see Ruger is dipping a toe in the suppressor market with a .22. Will be interesting to see if they expand upon that in time.

    Don't have any suppressed long guns myself either, but would like to.

    I see SIG is delving into the supressor market as well. I too am thinking about a 7.62 suppressor for the .300 WM. Would like some more info myself.

    silencer shop steered me towards the saker in 7.62, now I need to have my barrels threaded to 5/8x24? I wanted a Titan ti in .338 to use on my .340 Weatherby and down to my .270, .223, and tac .20, Paul suggested the saker as the big bore would not muffle the smaller calibers as well as the 7.62, so I ordered the saker! I seldom use my 340 Weatherby anyway. Now the wait..

    I got a .22 can for Ptarmigan awhile ago, and dammit now I have a can for my .338WM and 12ga as well! (not to mention a couple others...)
    Once you go out shooting something suppressed, it's no longer any fun to shoot UNsuppressed.

    Me too. Want one for a .22 rifle and hand gun, a Glock 9mm, AR 5.56 and .308 bolt gun. I think they are a splendid idea.

    Don't know if it is still that way, but when I was in Belgium in the late 70s they sold suppressors over the counter - no licensing required. Europe is so crowded noise is always a problem. I didn't buy one, but as I recall they weren't expensive.

    well, now maybe the Hearing Protection Act can or will pass, and we'll be able to buy them straight over the counter too. No wait, no stamp... and I won't even be upset over all the stamps I've collected prior to this. Hell, I'll celebrate by getting another can!

    You wont, went out in the wind and rain and chambering a round was louder than firing. One of these days I will send rounds down range to paper.
