It's not to show off at the shooting range. It's not because I saw it in a movie. It's not because it will impress you people with your rather tedious and inane discussions ad nauseum about Kel Tec vs Kahr, or Glock vs Sig (wink).

It's because if someone tries to break into my abode, with the intention of robbing and/or killing me (as what happened last week with a family in Houston), they will face the business end of a .45 with a suppressor. I don't want to damage my hearing or flinch from shooting a .45 indoors.

Also, it'd be fun to shoot at the range.

Did I miss a debate / arguement / conversation somewhere?

My first thought was that you hit 'new thread' instead of 'reply'...I do that all the time :D

Reads more like a testimonial than the beginning of a thread...

Congrats...I guess :scrutiny:

Like 10-ring said, it sounds like you got your testimonial figured out for the investigation afterwards, though! Keep practicing, make sure it at least sounds sincere. ;)

If an incident occurs and I have to use my suppressed USP, the police won't think I'm a "professional" will they?

As proactive as you want to be against home invasion robberies, I'd recommend NOT setting up a perimeter of Claymores. The suppressed USP should work fine, once you get it back from police impound. :rolleyes:

That's kinda funny, if my budget can swing it, I think I'll collect guns that Skunkabilly can't get, either. But I'll stay away from tactical plastic for now. :neener:

This USP Tactical model I'm talking about is going to cost me $1000! Not including the $600 + $200 NFA tax + misc fees for the suppressor! Ouch!

Damn, somebody better invade my residence! (J/K)

:banghead:

Do you all think the Tac is worth $1000?

The hearing loss from shooting a .45 in a room is only temporary. I have first hand experience. :o

Maybe so, but hearing loss is cumulative over time.

Schuey2002 - ooops, wrong choice of smilies. All in good fun, right? (I edited out the smilie from previous post)

How many times do you think you'll need to defend your life in an enclosed space?

No worries, 10-ring! ;)

It's all good.:neener:

You don't have a spare sense of hearing. Sure, you'll get it back, but that ringing you hear for awhile - that's your ear mechanisms being damaged. Other loud noises over 140 dB WILL cause more damage to your hearing, and it doesn't have to be from shooting guns. Why expose yourself to sources of damaging noise if you can avoid it?

Just a couple questions. Are you planning to carry this in a holster, or are you planning to have it stored somewhere? Do they make holsters for guns w/suppressors attached? IMO, I'd rather have the gun on my hip, and have it available right now, than have it be somewhere else in the house where it's not quite as accessible.

No, I won't be carrying the USP at all. It's too big for CC. I have other guns for that. But at home, the it would the designated self defense weapon (with suppressor).

Advanced Armament Corp does supply you with a fake First Aid Kit (it has a medical cross on the outside) to go with the silencer. You can store your USP and silencer, and two spare mags in that small canvas bag. People will think that's your First Aid kit if they see it. But if they unzip that bag...:what:

Hahaha...now that's cool.

After re-reading your thread, I understand now what you're asking. No, I don't wear my gun around the house. That's a good point you make though. I do have various guns planted at strategic locations around the place. No, I do not have kids living with me.

Amen. If suppressors were OTC items, we wouldn't give a second thought to having one on a home defense gun. It would be a no-brainer.

We're just brainwashed by a life under inane federal legislation.
