If you watch the vids on this page - there are a lot of tests with silenced and unsilenced weapons in their sound testing room.

An additional data source.

either round will deafen the daylights out of you in your home without hearing protection....but if you are fighting for your family or your life....it won't matter at the moment. Having fired a shotgun and rifle round twice in my life in my home years ago....it won't matter. The object is to eliminate the threat without getting eliminated. No margin for failure....

I had an ND in my house several years ago at 0200, I was in the Den and it didn't wake up my wife, Or my daughter, in their bedrooms.
It was a 230 gr HydraShok out of a 5" colt, and while VERY surprising it did not seem esp loud.
Now when I shot the Cape Buffalo with my muzzle braked .458 Win Mag I heard the ringing in my ears shift pitch for each of the 3 shots, and could barely hear the PH
yelling at my to "Hit it again"

Shooting suppressed handguns in a house

Dont think i could spend the money on a suppressor if that is all it does,wow that smoke would sure give away your presence also i would think
