I'd buy one for .22 and 223
Seriously? You think the rifle chainsaw is useless??
Cooliest thing I've seen all day.
Disagree. Schwacking prarie dogs is much easier when the prarie dog town doesn't drop back down their holes after the first one gets schwacked.
Not often I see an old-timer here subscribe to the NFA drivel. Suppressors are legitimately useful and were prohibited only as a bone thrown to folks motivated by blind fear that the Chicago typewriter was coming to a theater near them. Those folks were manipulated and the beat goes on.
As has already been noted, suppressors are very useful for hunting, target shooting and generally making the shooting experience more comfortable for all involved. Guns should come with shrouded barrels. "Recoil Junkies" could remove them easily enough.
They should never have been NFA controlled. They should be readily available over the counter.
But IMHO, they're still useless.
A better way to state that might be "I have no use for them."
Several of us have pointed out legitimate uses for them, and I'll add in the obvious one: They are very handy for military operations.
I have a laser bore sighter I bought from Cabelas many years ago and have used it to get me on target every time I mount a scope now. I even use it to adjust the sights on my open sighted rifles. The 30-30 I used to kill a deer with this year was sighted with my laser to adjust the Williams 5D receiver sight I mounted on it. When tested it was shooting dead center. I never touched the sights after using the bore sighter. I put a bullet right behind the foreleg on my deer at around 65-70 yards. So learn to use them and they work.
Is your humble opinion based on any experience with silencers?
Do you think a firearm is MORE USEFULL when it is louder?
While not really an accessory, more of a part. I never understood the appeal of thumbhole stocks; looks hideous and uncomfortable. IMO.
McFadden 22lr speed loader, some one on another forum said they were the best thing since sliced bread. Used it one time. Garbage in my oppinion.
Seconding the see through scope mounts at least I can still use the iron sights with them but the scope is functionally useless to me up that high.
They're pretty handy on a pistol. On a rifle, not so much.
They are ugly. But if they fit, I love them.
Are you active duty military?
I find them useful for dry fire trigger control training. That’s it.
They are just another potential point of failure in a bad situation.
Just my opinion though.
No, but I was at one time. Again, you are framing this strictly through your own experiences (or lack thereof) with them. Some of us in this whole wide world who are not you have different experiences and opinions of supressors; some, like mine, based on actual experience. And before you ask the next question, yes, I did use them in the military.
Some jelly-head said suppressors?! Hahahaa!
And we can only have earned an opinion on them if we are in the Navy?!
And nothing on the chain saw?
Nothing like a good trolling to get the blood up...
Oh, oh, I've got one! Scopes! Totally worthless. Makes humans think they are snipers, no one should be shooting more than a hundred if they can't see it! Only the military needs to shoot that far/quietly/fast/large/much...
Seriously now, senility is not a joke. Stop poking the troll. We all know suppressors are fun and useful.
However, butt stock mono-pods, now those are complete junk. If you can't hold it, give it to someone who can...
Warning labels stamped/etched into the gun.
Useless firearm accessory: home video of a bulls eye target for .357 magnum ..... .....
Absolutely agree! For giggles I'd use it to cut a steak or something around a campfire.
Loud pipes save lives! open drag pipes on my Harley make me much more noticeable to the average idio.... er.... driver. Oh, wait, this isn't about that kind of road? Never mind.
Can’t post the gif I guess...
No use? Really?
Being less than ear bleeding loud isn’t beneficial? C’mon man.....
Internal locks on handguns or the locks that come in the case.
I think these were more of a gun manufacturers insurance company mandate.
