    Does that mean Texas is the... silent majority?

    For some reason... this made me chuckle.

    I own 5. I got to thinking the other day.... why the hell I need 5? Then I thought about the money invested.. guess because I can;)

    Maybe I need one. Not sure what I would put it on, or how that all works. I’d have to get a threaded barrel, also, right?
    Total silencer noob here.
    Can the same silencer fit on different firearms?

    It can. It's not always optimum, but you can (as an example), use a silencer designed for a .45ACP on a 9mm pistol, assuming you can adapt the suppressor to the thread pitch of the barrel. Manufacturers make this pretty easy. You can also use a suppressor for a .30cal rifle on a 6.8SPC, 6.5CM, .270, 5.56, etc.

    Probably the greatest fun with a suppressor comes from shooting .22LR suppressed. Just silly stupid quiet and really useful for pest eradication on a low-key basis.

    I think I'm up over fifteen suppressors now . . . or at least I would be but for that lousy marine accident . . .

    So. You kind of buy a suppressor for a specific caliber of firearm,
    not for a specific make/ model of a particular firearm, right?

    So I could buy a 9 mm suppressor, and that could theoretically fit all my 9mm firearms, just provided I obtain a threaded barrel for that firearm I want to attach it to? Do I seem to have it understood correctly? (I need a suppressor 101 class.)
