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.

Re: Suppress or not to Suppress

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.
