It would be cool if it also threaded on to your shifter

Like a shifter handle on the shifter? That would be MINT. A shifter handle that you unscrew and then screw onto the barrel of your .22 or whatever gun you have. Obviously, there would be a thread adapter on the shifter itself, so the threaded adapter would have the same threads as your gun barrel. The supressor could even say MiataTurbo.net, compliments of ME. What's it worth? I'm thinkin $500 paypal as a gift, for the supressor and the adapter and you provide the thread pitch / caliber, and length you want. Shipping included.

Or a custom tactical flashlight that just so happens to thread onto the barrel...

If you've ever heard multiple 7.62x51 rounds firing next to your ear WITHOUT EAR PLUGS, you'll understand why several people (including me) appreciate the supressor.

My FFL says you no longer need plugs but it is NOT "quiet". I've only heard them in an indoor range and I had my hearing protection on so I have no idea what it really sounds like.

After running 600 rounds out of a Ruger yesterday... even through ear stuff... I can't imagine myself rationalizing the expense.

It's like the guy next to men yesterday... had a pile of guns. Modded stuff, shotgun, ar15 with tons of crap on it, LOUD .357, crapload of other stuff, etc.... was such a bad shot it made me chuckle/sad/cringe. Bought lots of stuff... no real reason.

Unless you need to work some covert ops for the government... or MUST kill varmits in the backyard...

I have several guns over here. Other than my concealed pistol, none are really needed. They are toys and the sound suppressor would just be another toy. Actually, I would probably start shooting my gun in my back yard from time to time (I live in a neighborhood) if it was not so loud.

Unless you have a few acres and a healthy hill/mountain backstop... why in the backyard?

Then again, I think I look at it like track time. There is a time and a place for everything... car fun > track, gun fun > range.

I think it's hilarious that you posted in the Christmas presents thread about how it was all a waste of money, and a bunch of **** about frugal this frugal that. Yet here we are looking at a $600 silencer with pretty much zero purpose.

Practice what you preach...

I am DEFINITELY practicing what I preach. If you don't waste money for decades on stupid crap you can later have money for things that you want. That $25 I saved in 1995 by not going to see Toy Story in the theater has turned into $600. Are you saying that I can NEVER buy something I want for the rest of my life? I think you are missing the point of becoming a millionaire. Like Dave Ramsey says "Live like no one else so later you can live like no one else". You aren't going to be able to buy a silencer because you just had to buy your aunt that dancing Santa toy years ago. THAT is was a waste of money.
