Silencer for Ruger Super Redhawk?
 
Hi all. First post here.

I have a Ruger Super Redhawk 44 mag, 9" barrel, with a Nikon scope which I use to deer hunt. However, I am bothered by the fact that my gun is soo loud, my ears ring if I shoot without hearing protection (which I do only when hunting). Does anyone have any experience with putting a silencer on a big revolver such as this?

I would appreciate your thoughts or links to where I could get more information about this.

Silencers are pretty useless on revolvers since you have a gap between the cylinder and barrel. Not worth the hassle.

I did think about this, and this issue is one of my questions regarding the whole idea. I assume a silencer would decrease the noise at least?

It is useless, illegal in most States and should not even be discussed in this forum..We don't even know who this guy is....

I realize you don't know who I am yet. This is my first post, so it kinda goes without saying...

I did a google search, and it seems that you can fill out a little paperwork, and be legal with a suppressor. If I suppressor/silencer is not out of my budget, I probably wouldn't mind filling out a little paperwork. I certainly don't have anything to hide (deer antlers?)...

Hi Fish

As posted by others here in the forum, the silencer is useless on a revolver, try a pair of electronic amplified ear muffs, something like these:
Radians HE4B00CS Hunters Ear Muff w/Independent Volume Control Receiver & Amplifier, NRR 85 dB, Moss

directional hearing?

My Dad and brother had some like this, though with less microphones. Would this kind with 4 mics allow for directional hearing? I'd be surprised if you could tell the difference in a sound 40 yards away, and one 2 yards away, as you usually can while hunting.
