Finally shot my suppressor

Bought a Q Trash panda last October. Got it end of July and was finally able to take it to the range today.
Ruger American Ranch in .300 blk topped with a Burris FF3. Shot Winchester 150gr Deer Season XP and Discreet Ballistics 188gr subs out to 50 yds. Very fun morning at the camp.

Damn, that is what I call self control. Unless I lived in a high rise in New York City I probably would have went outside and shot it into the dirt just out of curiosity.

It was hard, but between work, kids, Ida, and an archery trip to Oklahoma, I finally had a camp day.

Awesome that’s a good one. I’ve got a Thunder Chicken. As far as subsonic rounds go, Discreet Ballistics is as good as it gets.

re: Finally shot my suppressor
Those 150's are still loud through a can unless it is HUGE and slows the bullet down a TON. The subs are probably fine in the backyard though.

Not saying my dirt is full of lead and copper or anything.

They were super quiet to me, but again, first time shooting a suppressor. The subs sounded like I was shooting a crossbow honestly.

Unless there is a wipe in the silencer, a silencer will not slow down a bullet.

But the crack is still pretty loud.

re: Finally shot my suppressor
That is awesome. That was a pretty quick turnaround on the suppressor. Mine took 12 months.

Enjoy it!

Shot my 6.5 Grendel AR with the Banish 30 and it was like a loud air rifle or a pretty soft .22 but definitely hearing safe. Going to shoot some subsonic 300blk this weekend and see how those do.

If I really want “movie silencer quiet” I just shoot my Target Master with CB .22 shorts.

Should get quieter and quieter as you shoot it more and the carbon builds up. Good decision on the TP.

Can I ask where you got the Trash Panda? I was looking for one for awhile but it seemed like they were all more expensive than they should have been or just not in stock.

Planning on using it on multiple rifles yes. I have bought 3 cherry bombs so far. Two 6.5 grendels and my 300blk so far.

I ordered it from silencer shop last October through Bowie outfitters.

re: Finally shot my suppressor
Ok I been thinking about this for a long time but have not acted and don't really even know if it's possible. Am I able to buy a 40cal suppressor and put a qd mount on everything from 5.45, 5.56, 9mm, 40, 300, 7.62x39, 308, 300win etc and use same suppressor obviously not ideal but do the adapters thread in that wide of a barrel range?

Thinking of a 30cal or 40 cal suppressor and the absolute best or quietest 22LR I can find. But only really want one if I can potentially use it on everything I own or plan on owning.

What kind of sound do you get with the V-Max? I use them for deer with my 300BLK and they are a fast round.

re: Finally shot my suppressor
Im not sure how to describe it but the bullet impact is clearly audible over the gun sound.

Me and my hog buddies all shoot suppressed and we stand in a line and shoot rounds all night.

No one needs hearing protection and we can communicate while shooting. supersonic rounds still have a little pop but its not even close to unsuppressed but it's not movie quiet.

Obviously subsonic rounds will be even more quiet but we don't use them

Here are a bunch of my videos through my scope. that's about the best I can describe it Hog hunting - suppressed

Yea from just shooting the other day, supers sounded like a 22 and subs sounded like a crossbow.
