    Can I ask...
    What is your motivation or expectations for the suppressor?

    Ie
    Do you want movie quiet performance?
    If yes, you won’t get with 9mm.
    Go for 22lr.

    Are you trying to preserve hearing?
    9mm cans are still loud-ish.
    But reduce decibels quit a bit.

    It’s an expensive adventure. But worth the wait.
    Here is my most quiet set up...

    I want one for noise protection inside my home in a self defense situation. Plus I think they're pretty cool. Guess I'll stick with 147gr. for subsonic.

    Personally,
    I wouldn’t use a suppressor in home defense. Your thought is correct in the value of a suppressor and shooting indoors.

    However, after the shoot begins the legal battle.
    While a firearm and suppressor are legal. A civil suit brought by family will bring everything into question.

    The suppressor may appear (by some) to paint you in a different light. -blood thirsty, eager to shoot, etc.

    Any subsonic 9mm is movie quiet through a decent can,

    .22 cans are the most fun though, also the dirtiest. Get a decent one that doesn't have first round pop,
    I have 4 of them, in terms of quiet - Mask HD, Spectre II, Warlock II, Sparrow II in that order.

    If you are looking at 9mm cans I would get one of the new modular ones that you can add/remove baffels - the rugged suppressors / Griffin revolution, these are both fantastic , I have the griffin and its movie quiet with 147/150/165gr slugs

    Sucks because IMO suppressor makes all the sense for home defense, but it just gives an attorney/investigator something else to hypothesize on

    Scottsdale Gun Club has the kiosk machine. Go to talk with them, they are pretty knowledgeable on that stuff.

    Already went to the Silencer Shop in Mesa. We did the kiosk there. Now the long wait.

    Exactly!
    And there are VERY few judges that support 2A. Suppressor or not.

    The old expression goes, “better to be judged by twelve than carried by six.”

    The new adage should be, “better to be alive and bankrupt, than _____.”

    I’m an SOT dealer, take a look at the Silencerco Hybrid. It’s modular for pistol and rifle. One suppressor for multiple platforms

    And a good lawyer could do the same with a gun modified with sights and a trigger job, as it shows you are wanting to be more accurate/deadly with your gun. And maybe just itching for a fight. :rolleyes:

    So buy a stock gun and DON'T MODIFY IT you monster you... ;) /s
