Nice you won't be disappointed.

I just got mine for an 8.2" 300blk SBR. Shot it the other week for the first time with subsonics and it sounded like a strong pellet gun. Freakin' awesome!

I will also use on on a 10" 5.56 but have not tried that yet.

It's something I have always wanted since I was 8.
When I saw my first 007 movie at the theater, Goldfinger was just released.
So when Michigan leagalized the ownership of these I was quick to buy one.

The most important reason is because of the last four letters in AmerICAN.

The "coolness" factor and apparently I have more money than sense.

A couple of reasons. Mainly to protect my hearing and that of those around me, mainly my kids, when shooting and especially (God forbid it ever happens) if I ever need to fire the gun in my home for self defense. I'd still like to be able to hear when it's done.

I wanted to be able to use it also for a HD gun, so night practice seemed practical to me. My .22's were for pure fun at first but are so practical for hunting and possibly a stealthy SHTF gun. I decided I wanted something a little harder hitting for a SHTF gun so I have one on my Ruger Gunsite Scout rifle and is it ever quiet with subsonics. The list goes on, and the thrill never stops.
