    Then I'd wager you have never fired an AR or M4 styled rifle, a shotgun, or even a handgun indoors without proper hearing protection... an AR will concuss plaster off a ceiling, imagine what that does to your ears.

    Outside, in a short SD situation, your hearing will probably recover. In a HD situation (inside) you'll probably suffer some permanant hearing loss.

    The can helps to mitigate some of that.

    Yankee Hill Machine has some decently priced offerings that apparently work very well. Have you looked at YHM cans?

    Nope, and haven't heard of them. They'll have to go on the list to review.

    My goal, eventually, is to have a HD gun with a suppressor, ready to go. Considering how loud these guns are outside, inside they're much, much worse. If I had a defensive gun use, which I hope I never do, I'd like to have the benefit of maybe not losing my hearing during the event. Plus, shooting rifles, under cover outside, is still darn loud, even with hearing protecting. Reducing the db's down makes for a much more enjoyable experience. Those 2 reasons alone are enough for me to 'need' a suppressor - IMO.

    "It ain't called the bill of neeeeeds...."
    :D
    Just kidding, but for the rest of you, I'm totally down for quiet shooting in my own back yard. But seeing as i can typically get 100% reliable 9mm reloads locally for about $0.20/rnd, I'm worried about finding subsonic ammo for equally good prices. Anyone find a distributor that has a reasonable pricepoint on ammo?

    I would pass. I picked up a gemtek trek gen 1 for $250 a year ago as a used police trade in. $500 new. Still pretty basic and clunky compared to higher end, but decent. I saw one for $300 gen 2 a few months ago. I would just wait for those or something similar.

    For another 200...

    At 400 the YHM Turbo is a good option.

    I’ll let you know how good, some day. :oops:

    Regardless of price....I'd just really like to have the 2 I've already paid for :( I know it's still going to be a long wait.
