    I just was wondering why we do not see many .380 sound suppressors. I assume that it is because you can use a 9mm suppressor on a .380. It seems that the .380 would be ideal for suppression because most .380 ammo is subsonic. Do you know of any .380 specific suppressors?

    Identical to 9mm suppressor.

    I wonder how the AAC TiRANT 9S would perform on a .380 pistol like a PPK or Kahr P380? Have you ever heard of anyone suppressing a P380?

    It's going to be a little quieter than 9mm all things equal.

    Here is a picture from AAC of a .380 with the new TiRantS 9mm suppressor.
