Well, the short answer is, it is just plain fun!
Adding a 22 silencer to your rimfire firearm, whether it be a 22 rifle or a rimfire pistol, makes the whole shooting experience more pleasurable. We have always recommended using something like the Regulator Ti for new shooters when they are just learning the fundamentals of accuracy. This silencer is so light that its doesnt weigh down the gun and it takes the loud bang out of the event so there is a lot less problems from flinching.
Also, when a 22 suppressor is added the sounds the the user hears instead come out since the firearms “bang” is eliminated, I have heard all sorts of things that were not possible till I started using a 22 silencer. Noises like the sound the bullet makes when it hits the target, the action of the firearm, or the bullet passing through the air is another odd sound that you normally don’t hear. It is actually kind of fascinating to know all those other sounds are there too…
So what is the best 22 silencer for the beginning shooter? I would reccomend one that is light weight and that is a proven design with high performance sound suppression as the main target item of the design. Our Regulator series is a perfect example of these kinds of 22 suppressor designs as you want the initial experience to be the best possible and absolute suppression will give this result.
Another thing to consider is the reduction in noise pollution that a quality 22 silencer can bring to the table, maybe you are at a gun range that only allows firing during certain hours , but suppressed, subsonic 22 suppressor use can happen anytime as it is almost silent. This is just another benefit to using rimfire silencers when shooting, the rules can get singed for you in these kinds of situations.
So until next time, keep your powder dry!
