Advantages of Suppressors

Gun suppressors have their distinct disadvantages. They make guns heavier and longer, making them harder to carry, especially on long periods of time. But many gun owners and enthusiasts see these disadvantages as minor setbacks, because they see the tremendous advantages of suppressors.

In fact, there is even a gun suppressor system out there that effectively combines rifles and suppressors into one device, so the rifles can have the inherent advantages of suppressors and minimize their disadvantages.

Avoid Ear Problems

A gun is not exactly ear-friendly, because of how loud it can be when shot. This is particularly true if you don’t use ear plugs and if you are indoors, because the closed space make the soundwaves go back at you. Constantly abusing your ears with gunshot noises can result into hearing issues.

Avoid Noise Complaints

The thing about noise is you are not the only one that hears it. The peacefulness of entire neighborhoods can be compromised if you don’t use suppressors, and when you think about it, that makes you look like a selfish person, for creating noise and not thinking about your neighbors.

Improve Awareness and Concentration

Suppressors may be effective enough to make it safe not to use ear plugs and other sound barriers. This means that you will be more connected to your surroundings. This means that you will be more aware of the environment and more focused, which can improve your hunting and shooting.

Improve Communication

Communication is an important aspect in almost everything, and that includes hunting with a group. If you are not wearing any sound suppressor like an ear plug, you will be able to talk and communicate more effectively with the rest of the group. This, of course, translate to better hunting.

Improve Accuracy

Suppressors are not just about reducing noise, as they can also reduce recoil. Recoil can greatly affect your aim, so reducing it is an automatic increase in accuracy. This is particularly notable to beginning shooters.
