    The clays video was oddly soothing.

    That`s one of the neatest thing I`ve seen in quite some time.

    That`s pretty cool... but my Poly Choke makes the end of my barrel feel heavy enough. That seems like it would make for a heavy barrel feel.

    drawman -
    It must be sad being you. Even a picture of an inanimate object is enough to trigger your irrational fears.

    Flash suppressor. Not Silencer.

    Is there such a thing as a *silencer*? It seems impossible to me, except for a very low-power gun or one which uses some other form of propulsion, e.g. an airgun.

    The basic principle of an ordinary gun is using an explosion to throw a projectile along a tube. That`s not going to be easily silenced. Noise reduction, sure. But *silencing*? Looks like film and TV magic to me.

    I`ve always thought the whole point of a tactical shotgun was to cause total f***ing chaos, so if you shoot one guy and spatter his brains all over the wall, the other guys will $#!+ themselves and give up. The noise just adds to that.

    Suppressor`s work with a shotgun because the "shot" is subsonic.
    Where pistols and rifles need loads to keep the bullet below the speed of sound,
    or you get a loud crack as the bullet brakes the sound barrier.

    This is not the first. They made one on Sons of Guns a few years ago.

    OldOllie, that may be true, but what I see is me blowing up an intruder without tipping off other potential intruders outside. I like a shotgun not just because it`s intimidating, but because it`s hard to miss your target. Actually, I guess that`s part of the reason it`s intimidating. So if I can get the effectiveness without attracting my targets buddies (say they were armed too and decided not to haul tail outta there), then I can just hang out and pick them off without having to be a perfect shot. I guess I`d kinda feel like the spider rather than the fly. I`ve never been in a gunfight, but your`e right, in a perfect world you fire off a round or two like Joe Biden said (Lol) and hope they run away.

    @ak2nc1 They`re not that silent. Besides, if he has buddies outside, I`d I think they`d be more likely to run away. Remember, these would be common thieves, not professional assassins, and I doubt very seriously they would knowingly and willingly enter a house where they know they would be facing a shotgun being wielded by someone who knows all the good hiding places.

    However, I hope for both of us we`re never faced with that.

    Big deal. Nothing about a standard shotgun shell is supersonic.... basically all it is is a muffler. A pillow would work just as well.
    It`s NOT going to work with 12 gauge sabot rounds, as those *do* exceed the speed barrier.
    Silencers only work on subsonic projectiles since The greatest amount of noise is caused by the bullet creating a sonic boom.

    "not just because it`s intimidating, but because it`s hard to miss your target."

    I saw this video sometime ago that had a nice comparison between shotgun and AR15.

    I agree, that video did not seem real. Silenced guns sound louder than that. and a shotgun is a LOUD gun to start with

    If you listen, you can hear the mic in the camera peaking, even though, immediately after, you can hear from the guy`s voice fading in that the gain controller had it turned way down.

    The video kinda makes it seem quiet, but I guarantee you that thing`s still pretty damn loud (as are suppressors in general).

    Shotguns scatter the shot...this had a small,
    compact bean-bag looking pellet.... not a shot gun
