osprey and tirant: understanding the value of a 45 suppressor
I have this Hk45C and have been thinking about how "neat" it might be to have a quality suppressor and maybe laser light combo and make it all tacticool looking.
I have spent the past 2 hours researching Osprey 45 vs. TiRant 45 cans. I like the fact you can safely shoot them dry because I think I would get annoyed carrying around some liquid to fill it up all the time to make it hearing safe. That just sounds like an inconvenience. I want to be able to hook it up and rock.
After those 2 hours of researching, I realized, I have never heard a .45 cal suppressor on a pistol. It would be stupid to want to buy something and never have heard it in person. I've seen youtube and that is all.
So...shooting one of these cans DRY, how awesome is it? Seems like a lot of trouble and cost if I end up disappointed. I see that you can get to ~134db with these cans. What is that equivalent to? I have no idea what the sound would be similar to. Would it be quieter than someone slamming a door, for instance?
Long winded...but I have been obsessed with suppressors today and just need to get this all straight...so i can put my O.C.D. to rest or buy one of these damn novelties.
