...I was thinking about a suppressed LCP too. However, after another look at my modified Bobcat I decided that silence isn't always golden...darn thing prints pretty bad as well:

I don't think they make that type of barrel or suppressor.

AKS, no offense but you're kidding right? Why on earth would you want a threaded barrel on a Ruger LCP? ???

Wouldn't work ~ couldn't work.

When fired, Miss Elsie's barrel moves backward, then cants down in the back to receive the next shell. A suppressor would totally mess up functioning and most likely tear her up. The only barrels you can attach a suppressor to is one that is unmovable (rigid) in the weapon.

At first glance, good idea, but Elsie is much too little anyway.

+1. It goes to say that the sheer added weight and the physics in play would render the gun inoperable, Probably destroy it as well in the process. 'Nuff said. Just when you thought you heard everything. Wow. :)

I almost spit my coffee when I seen that picture. I love it! Good luck fitting that in your pocket.

That was going to be my question. Well, other than the fact that suppressors really don't suppress all that much.
That cute little quiet "phut" that silencers make on tv is just some tv producer's imagination going wild again.
I can't see a reason for one on any gun. What you end up with is a noisy two foot long club with a gun on one end.

...mn...it probably would be quiet if I had one for the Bobcat...just a little fun...from the sublime to the ridiculous in this case...

...gasbag, you will find some interesting dialog about suppressors in this thread:

http://elsiepeaforum.com/forum/index.php?topic=15469.0

...also, you'll get the general idea of what it can do or not do with this vid...my P22 is fitted with the Outback II, so this is quite relevant:


...do what you have to do...I can shoot it all day long in my back yard (very carefully with safety in mind) and the neighbors think some squirrels had some really bad farts... ;)

Very impressive. Better than many of the movie sounds.

I'm still jealous...we can't have them in MN. My soon to be delivered S&W M&P 15-22 has the threaded barrel.... :(
