Why Suppressors? The Benefits are Surprising

The suppressor has a wide range of benefits, but the primary function of all suppressors is safety. The primary safety function is the sound level reduction. Shooting suppressed can mitigate serious hearing loss by reducing the audible decibel level of your firearm. Earplugs and other forms of hearing protection are effective, and every shooter should use protection at the range. Meanwhile, shooting in the field often happens without any hearing protection.

To understand the impact of shooting without hearing protection, consider that hearing damage that occurs at a decibel level of 140. Everything above this level increases the amount of damage that leads to hearing loss. Stand next to a fighter jet and you are likely to have hearing loss from the 150 decibel sound level. The average firearm has an incredible 160 decibels, and many shooters are experiencing this level repeatedly. In essence, shooting firearms without hearing protection is like working in an airfield of fighter jets without earplugs.

Shooting with a suppressor drops the decibel level significantly, moving it into the safe zone of 130 decibels or less. This equivocates with sounds like a jackhammer or chainsaw; still worthy of hearing protection for comfort, but safer than shooting unsuppressed.

Additionally, shooting suppressed reduces the audible sound heard by everyone, making it less disturbing for everyone in the area. Throw in the reduced recoil that helps increase accuracy while extending your physical abilities to shoot more in a single outing, and the benefits of suppressors become exceptionally desirable for everyone.
