As the saying goes..."Just because you don't need hearing protection, doesn't mean you shouldn't use it anyway." Especially for varmints where your shooting a LOT.

IMO, varmint hunting benefits from using a suppressor way more than big game or predator hunting actually does.
I would strongly encourage you to reconsider and give it a whirl. Once you do, you'll never shoot without one. (unless of course the law prohibits it)


We hunt and shoot EVERYTHING suppressed and have been for about 5 years now. This was the family at one time. It's now much larger.
