    If it's approved by CINCHOUSE and your state, YES. It makes shooting, IMO, much more enjoyable for you and anyone with you. Any accuracy benefits are just gravy.

    I enjoy shooting suppressed! Lower recoil and much lower blast!

    suppress everything and don't look back. You can always take it off if you go somewhere its not legal.

    First thing you need to do is find out if its even legal for you to own a suppressor where you live. If you live in the US and plan to hunt with the rifle, I do not know of any states that allow suppressors to be used for big game hunting. If its just a target rifle, no problem in many states but some states do not even allow suppressors to be used for varmint hunting so look into that before you invest in a suppressor.
