    I noticed that ad just above by Silencer Co (or something). Anyway, great joy. I was just wondering though, who here would not "rack" with great vengeance and glee that pump gun.. thereby nullifying the "silent" deal? come on

    Some shotguns you don't have to "rack"...

    I understand. You know for a fact though that said dillweed would have to rack the hell out of his silenced shotgun before going all.. silent. lol

    While that is an amazing noise reduction it is still a looong way from "silent." Not much problem for an opponent to locate the sounds of you fireing. Nice toy though. Man, those vids were beautifully shot!

    BTW, shooting clays with a combat shotgun, what a gas! Back in the olden times we used to stand in the bed of a PU, holding the roll bar, and roar up to known ground squirrel concentrations and open up on them with riot guns. It was a massacre! Hard too! Only rules were don't encroach on your buddy's field of fire, don't shoot the driver and empty chamber until the truck stopped completely. Ah youth!

    Yeah, the physics of suppressors implies that the bigger the bore, the less effective the sound attenuation. But it'd still be nice to have a hearing-safe scattergun.

    I spoke with a SilencerCo rep recently. 140 DB, so still pretty loud - a lot louder than racking the gun. Around $850 or so IIRC, supposed to be just as reliable as their other silencers. Several of my friends are very happy with their products.

    Here's one, although not much difference of sound on video, but no ear protection with gizmo on.....

    I can imagine the average mall ninja racking loud and proud and then going into stealth mode. It really does defeat the purpose of silence with the average "bad a%$".

    Have to admit, like most everyone else on this forum I'm sure I wanted one when I saw No Country....

    I don't know, if I had to fire one inside for self-defense and didn't have a chance to get some ears on first, that noise reduction might be a real welcome benefit - even at 140db.

    Although I have to admit looking at the creepy dude from no country the silencer is pretty damn scary to see pointed at you on a shotgun.
