Are Suppressors Worth the Hassle?

    What doesn’t get a lot of press is that particularly on centerfire rifles, a suppressor just makes the shooting experience more … comfortable.

    Supressors cut recoil by about half of what a good muzzle brake would, but without subjecting your neighbor on the firing line to your redirected muzzle blast.

    And they completely eliminate the impact of the muzzle blast on the shooter himself.

    Shooters train to ignore those two factors but that doesn’t mean they don’t still wear on you, because they do. And those factors become more important the higher the power of your rifle, the more rounds you intend firing, and the higher a premium you’ll be placing on your firing precision. Because a suppressor lets you remain at peak concentration over more rounds fired than unsuppressed.

    Not really something that gets a lot of press but a suppressor simply lets you get a higher return on the time you spend behind the trigger.

    None of that makes any sense.

    Q U E S T I O N.

    Here’s the ‘right’ one.

    Are your ay-whole neighbors who needed a job (yer “gov’t”)(and the root of the problem) worth keeping around.

    2 Paragraph of the Declaration of Independence might not support an affirmative answer on that.

    Your ay-whole neighbors who needed a job (your government) should be compelled, by law, but also joint and severally liable Under Penalty of Death [U.P.O.D.] to publicly declare (maybe as part of their swearing-in ceremony???) THAT THEY CANNOT PROTECT YOU ON AN INDIVIDUAL LEVEL. They cannot even guarantee protection for themselves.

    AND, if they can’t do that, then they get to #NaCl, and all of their bullsh*t regulations that they pretend make them your protectors, when their circle-jerk of an honor-system that is their infringement on our self-regulation (as no one can regulate the non-self-regulated [do your own research]) is a putrid detritus to Societal Agreement
