Anyone else like compact suppressor setups?

The Smith & Wesson Shield 9mm with the Dead Air Odessa has been one of our favorite compact pistol combos to demo. We was impressed with the sound performance from such a thin suppressor. The adjustability it comes with just gives the end user so many options! If your looking from a pistol can go demo one!

I have a Dead Air Sandman-K for my rifle. I love a compact suppressor. I don’t need hearing safe, I just want all of the other benefits of a suppressor on my rifle.

I do want a 9mm suppressor, and I’m dying the configurable Dead Air Ghost-M. Long and short configuration.

Pretty excited about a suppressed PCC.

The ghost is a great can. Even better now that they have lowered the price!

Been wanting to get a suppressor for a while. Had a company that was going to give me one for review, I just needed to take care of the tax stamp. Didn’t have the cash then. Kicking myself for not getting it. I may have to look in to find something again, small for a Glock 26.

This is my personal daily carry. LWRC with AAC MINI 4
It is NOT hearing safe… but, in a situation where I need to use it, I will not be looking for hearing protection… and I need something short. This is on a 14.5 inch barrel. Good little suppressor for what it is.

I really prefer hearing safe in a suppressor with factory ammo. I dont think it’s too much to ask, most of the time.

Now, on a 3" can, it may be too much to ask. How many baffles are in the Odessa? Does it run a wipe.

FWIW, I run a 8" form 1 on my 10.5" sbr’ed 556 AR and its hearing safe with any ammo. Couldnt be happier.

The Odessa is 10 baffles and does a real good job with 147s - 158s. Unfortunately we did not have access to a meter at the time we was in possession of the Odessa so I do have any data to share.
We have metered a bunch of cans on 556 ar15s and with the action of the ar15 none are hearing safe until you add an adjustable gas block. Most meter 143-146 at the ear. We have ran multiple setups and configurations from 7.5, 10.5, 11.5, 14.5 and 16”. To me many sounded good and felt hearing safe but with the b&k 2209 and Pulse none dropped under 140 until we added an adjustable gas block. After we have gotten ear numbers down into the 135s with off the shelf 55grain 556.

Lots of dust on this. But OK, I’ll bring it back to life.

I have a Ghost-M and I must admit that I use it in the full length config’ all the time. But it mostly sees subsonic .22 even though it can do much more.

I also have an Amtac CQB which is NOT hearing safe. But it’s job is to get rid of the blast indoors where I hope I never need to use it. Indoors, blast from the cartridge bothers me much more than the sound. It adds only 4" to the firearm since it’s a reflex can and I designed a .300BLK handgun build around the can. I don’t know if you’d consider that a compact can, but it is a reflex. The 10" barrel plus can is only 14".

It wears a different sight today to save weight.

Due to the carbon handguards something must be in place on the muzzle to get the blast out beyond them. When the can isn’t on it a Hera linear comp is there.
