Suppressor for SD in home?
I'm partially disabled, and am my Mother's caregiver. She's 89, a heart patient, deaf in one ear, nearly deaf in the other(and so uses a hearing aid), and is legally blind. I'm 60, have severe disk disease and cardiomyopathty, and am on the sliding(downward) scale of mobility, stamina, and strength.
Home invasions are becoming more prevalent in our state, as the economy worsens. During the war, I suffered some hearing damage, though nobody thought to get disability payments at the time, and no way to prove it now... When at the range, I have to use ear plugs, as well as ear muffs, even when shooting one of my .22LR Ruger 10/22 Chargers.
I keep Walker's Power Muffs on my bed post, and have my G30 with 14rds by my bed, Gemtech Blackside and M6X affixed. I can no longer move quickly, nor easily wield/field my ARs, shotgun, or bolt action rifles. I'm relegated to using my pistols for self defense. Frankly, I never considered becoming decrepit...
Would my current set-up be considered "too much," for self defense? I can no longer do hand-to-hand, nor could I even use any kind of blade- though I have true "working swords" and top level fighting knives and tomahawks.
I appreciate all you have done for the shooting fraternity, and your help to us, here at GT.
Thank-you, Mas. I look forward to your ideas...
