    Do I. Don't I?

    Looking at the Toby shoot later this year and thinking it could be good to get TR behind something with longer legs. Yes, I know that will probably mean she thrashes me by even more. Now she is pretty slight so wondering if I do get something bigger for her should I go to one of those nasty noise sharing brakes or stick with a suppressor?

    @kiwi39 @Kiwi Greg @Gibo, though I know Gibo will find this anyway.

    Not being a supporter of noise reducers, I think a loudner is the way to go.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    No matter what the cartridge a decent brake will reduce much more recoil than any suppressor if you are recoil sensitive.

    As previously mentioned you will need muffs anyway

    Yeah. That's what I'm thinking. I don't think a quietener will knock back enough of the recoil for her if I go ahead with my evil plan.

    Maybe could get two brakes? Just to level the playing field a little.

    Would only be fair....seeing as you are fairly slight yourself.

    Took me a while and about three reads to work out what the hell you were on about. Must be a southerner thing! The problem with the cans is they run out of internal volume for more spent gasses whereas the break keeps deflecting and reducing recoil. One of the questions is will the increased muzzle blast and extra noise make the operator shoot worse, I know I shoot better with more recoil and less noise. My .338LM is a bitch of a thing for that, you feel it rather than hear it - the muzzle blast is unreal in a covered firing point.

    Being an old deaf bastard like Rushy, it lets him know when he's pulled the trigger, suppressors all the way!
