11 New Hunting Suppressors for 2015

11 New Hunting Suppressors for 2015

For decades, suppressors have been called silencers and labeled assassin and poacher tools, despite a lack of evidence outside of the world of movies. Besides, there is no way to "silence" a firearm — suppressors simply reduce the amount of noise, like a car muffler.

Suppressors are excellent tools for reducing noise pollution and protecting the hearing of shooters and hunters.


However, choosing a suppressor is no easy task. There are numerous factors to consider, such as caliber, or calibers, to be suppressed, materials, weight, dry or wet, and direct thread or quick detach.



I've always felt that a suppressor should be lightweight, fairly easy to use and maintain, and reduce enough noise to completely eliminate earplugs or muffs when shooting.

Here are a few I think you should consider when filling out that NFA paperwork.
