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.

@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.
