AAC now has a division specifically for hunters. This was swiped from their website but I think they make good points as to why suppressors for hunting is beneficial. I think these points should be brought to lawmakers and pushed. Always Use Protection By reducing the overall sound signature, silencers help protect the shooter, and those around, from tinnitus, or irreversible hearing loss. Tinnitus can result from single shot exposure. Firearm Control Silencers improve accuracy by minimizing recoil and muzzle blast, allowing shooters to focus on the fundamentals of shooting. Better Accuracy AAC's silencers also improve accuracy by promoting the harmonic stabilization of the barrel and reducing gas-induced instability when the projectile exits the muzzle. Camouflage Silencers disguise the location of the shooter by reducing muzzle flash and minimizing environmental disturbances. Youth Shooters By mitigating the concussive effects of firearms, silencers allow young shooters to safely and quickly learn how to shoot. Command and Control Silencers help users maintain command and control by enabling shooters to communicate both at the range and in the field. Night Vision While predator hunting, AAC's silencers prevent "blooming" of night vision equipment and help preserve unaided night vision by eliminating muzzle flash.
