A silencer can be a useful tool for hunting and home defense. It cuts down on your sound pollution when you are out in nature, and it can cut back on some of the disorienting effects of firing a gun during the adrenaline of a home defense situation. After all, in a worst case scenario where you have been woken up from a deep sleep, and are unsure what is going on, the fewer discombobulating factors the better. It is also good to cut back on sounds that might be damaging to the ears of your loved ones and neighbors since it may be unrealistic to expect them to secure ear and eye protection during an emergency.
DE Guns can help you obtain a high quality silencer, even though this process is not quite as simple as going to a local gun shop and picking one up. We will walk you through some important information, followed by a few suggestions about silencers we and our customers both love using.

How to Figure Out What Silencer You Want
As experienced silencer buyers and users will know, thereäó»s a lot more to this than grabbing a can, plugging it onto your gun, and enjoying a quieter shot. In fact, you should start by being realistic about your expectations of a silenceräó»s performance. Portrayal of this tool in movies has created misconceptions about just how suppressed the sound of a silencer really is. The average person has been lead to believe that a gun with a silencer will deliver a little äóìpewäó sound, making it a go-to for international secret agents in the crowded streets of a cosmopolitan metropolis. The reality is that firearm performance with a silencer doesnäó»t sound like that at all, and they are very common and practical tools for average, everyday firearm operators.
- Attaching a Silencer to a Gun
Itäó»s tough to think of anything more useless than spending money on a silencer you canäó»t use. You should make sure that the silencer you intend to purchase is is rated for the caliber you intend to shoot with it. You also should double check that that the firearm you plan on using with a silencer will be able to attach to one. Typically this will mean the gun needs to have a threaded barrel. Other silencers can attach to guns using a specially designed device like a muzzle break to accomplish this.
- Begin the Process with DE Guns As Your Dealer
