I received my long-awaited suppressor yesterday and had the pleasure of shooting my VP9 suppressed for the first time. It is amazingly fun. I did wear foam plugs (usually I wear muffs and plugs when shooting) and the sound was quieter than I ever imagined. Using my stock sights, I was able to hit what I aimed at. The pistol handled well and I had no blowback of debris. I have called Rugged a few times to ask questions, being a newbie. The folks are extremely helpful and patient. I purchased this item through a Silencer Shop kiosk at a local gun shop. The entire process, including forming a trust, was incredibly easy. Simply put, I love this suppressor. It was worth the wait!
