Silencers and suppressors have a number of incredibly practical benefits for gun owners. There are a lot of things big Blockbuster movies get wrong about firearms, ammunition, and accessories but especially silencers. Silencers have practical purposes in both home defense situations and hunting grounds. First of all, the way a silencer actually behaves has been totally misrepresented. In movies, silencers take the bang of a gun and make it sound like a kid is blowing the paper wrapper off the end of a straw. Thatäó»s not how it works. In real life, a silenced or suppressed gunshot is almost as loud as a standard one if you are standing nearby the rifle. The difference comes in how far the sound carries.
Silencers and Suppressors When Hunting
A suppressed or silenced gunshot does not travel as far as one at full volume. If you are hunting, that means that you will create less sound pollution when you use a silencer. This can be less bothersome to people who live in the vicinity of hunting areas. Many people who live in rural and remote areas love the peace and serenity of nature. Itäó»s fair to say the average hunter can relate to this. Thatäó»s why itäó»s considerate and worthwhile to cut down on the rapport of your gunshot while hunting. If you are hunting at night, you do not want to disorient yourself with a bright muzzle flash. A suppressor is safe for your eyes, and useful when shooting at night. The same principle applies when you are at the range with others.

Silencers and Suppressors in Home Defense Situations
It is incredibly important to gain control of a home defense situation as quickly as possible. There are just too many things that go wrong too quickly. You may not have had the presence of mind to grab protective gear for using your gun. You arenäó»t able to see well because you were woken from your sleep. A silencer and suppressor can eliminate certain factors that may be damaging to you or your environment. Silenced gunfire is less likely to blow out windows or shatter glass and ceramic obstacles with the sound. A suppressed flash is less likely to flair in your eyes and blind you while your assailants close in on you. It also may at least reduce the risk of damaging the ears and eyes of loved ones in your home who may not have had time to secure protective gear for their ears and eyes.
