To those of you who own a suppressor, or even considering the purchase of a suppressor. What are/were your reasons for obtaining one? My reasons? To use on two handguns that I use for the purpose of Home Defense (Not a Carry gun) and to protect the hearing of those in the household if either of these handguns need to be use for Self Defense in the home. In a situation of justified home defense, no one will have the time to put on and use any form of hearing protection. Using a suppressor only increases our protection in a home defense situation. Suppressors also have other benefits like lower recoil as well. For those interested in knowing. The two handguns in the home are a Baretta 92FS Inox with. Dead Air Odessa-9 and a S&W M&P 2.0 45 acp with a Dead Air Ghost-M I didn’t purchase them for range shooting as we have to wear earring protection at the range anyways so it’s a moot point. Although at my cabin and my outdoor range, the suppressors will come in handy for shooting at that property. Target or problem animals.
