Those are good reasons. Especially the home defense example.

I really want one for my P22. It would be awesome for getting rid of the possums and coons that find their way under my deck and into my garbage.

Never thought about registering it to a trust though. I may look into that. Still a hefty price tag once you factor in the demand and tax stamp.

Do they have a life expectancy?

I have a P22 and a Sparrow. Sparrows are not as efficient on pistols so if you primarily want it on a pistol, get a Spectre II. My local dealer had them for $350 and then add the $200 tax stamp. Submitting E-forms can speed up the process. I used a trust that I drafted myself. If I get another NFA item and if the BATFE wants prints and pictures of all names on the trust, I will go the individual route. I have a new sheriff and he is a Democrat so I don't know if he will sign. I can't print 8 people, especially a minor who is a beneficiary.

Most will last longer than you will. Baffle strikes are one way to seriously damage a suppressor.

Most 22 long rifle cans will come apart for cleaning.

Cheap cans are cheap. $200 will get an aluminum 22 can that won't disassemble. Don't buy cheap cans! $350 will get a stainless steel take apart rimfire can that will last a lifetime.

Was spot on with his comment that a larger caliber suppressor works on a smaller caliber rifle. For example in testing suppressors last year we found that the 308 suppressor on the 223/5.56 AR Rifles was quieter than the 223/5.56 Suppressor for the rifle. So if an when, I get one it will be for the 308!

The thread pitch is different. But you can find an adapter.

yes but i doubt you will ever buy the hundred thousand or so rounds to wear one out. you will go through several guns before the suppressor dies.

depends. i use qd suppressors for centerfire. screw on ones are far too limiting in what you can use em on. if your going to go through the hassle of nfa just get a damn good adaptable to many guns suppressors. my surefire fa762k goes from the wife's 308 savage 10fcpsr to my scar17 and also mine and her bcm carbines... all have different thread pitches.

if you have a screw on type you cant use it on a 308 ar10 if you bought it to fit your m1a... no adapters to do that

I'm waiting on the ATF for a Gemtech 22 supressor. Everything paid for and in the mail about three months ago. My threaded 4.5" Ruger MK3 22/45 is anxiously awaiting it.

Next up will be a 7.62 can...to be used for 308, 300blk, 5.56. Looks like that'll be a pretty spendy process, and may require an additional tax stamp (300blk SBR) as well.
