AAC’s newest 7.62 fast-attach suppressor not only goes on in as little as three seconds, it’s rated for .300 AAC Blackout, 6.8 SPC and 5.56 NATO. The 90 Tooth Ratchet Taper minimizes point-of-impact shift. It comes with a Blackout flash hider mount and a fully welded baffle core to reduce backpressure. It weighs 19.6 ounces and is 7.6 inches long. The SR7 is coated with Cerakote and has a sound range of 25 to 39dB. ($949; Advanced-Armament.com)

This year manufacturers brought out a number of excellent new suppressors that are sure to excite a lot of shooters looking to quiet things down.

Did you hear that? Of course you didn’t. That was the sound of a gun equipped with a suppressor. Whether used for hunting, for plinking or simply for protecting your own ears, suppressors are rapidly gaining in popularity where legal. Try one, and you’ll see why. They not only reduce noise, they can also reduce recoil, making them a great tool for beginning shooters.

Thankfully, they are legal in 42 states. Most allow them for shooting and hunting, while a few restrict their use to the target range. Buying one is simple. It requires a few more steps than buying a gun, but if you can legally own a firearm, you can legally own a suppressor. Even better, there are more models available than ever.
