I haven't been able to get excited about buying a suppressor. It isn't that I don't understand the benefits. I have a problem with the artificial expense involved with acquiring one. Paying a tax for the privilege of owning one - no thanks. As for the purchase price - it's a chunk of machined metal with average precision. There's no reason for one to cost more than $250. When I see $500 - 1000 units...I'm just not seeing the value.
