Make no mistake - this is why I'm looking to get a USP Tac with suppressor

    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.

    Sounds like you didn't need to tell us...

    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?

    Who can tell?

    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. :eek:

    Maybe so, but hearing loss is cumulative over time.

    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?
