How would you attach a suppressor to a C9? I know of no aftermarket extended barrel or threaded barrel makers.

I'm also wondering if there would be a lot of noise from the ejection port with the C9 being a blowback design.

Buy a C-9 Comp, toss the comp in the parts box and thread the barrel.

:welcome:gyrobob!!!
I doubt the noise would be much more, the suppressor acts like a muffler
to absorb the great volume of gasses expelled, releasing them slower and
somewhat quieter than before, and if properly sized, the same amount of blowback is achieved. If you have a can that is too small, you could insert a heavier recoil spring and overcome some or all of this. I believe "blowback sound" would be reduced as well. If needed at all... :confused:

The tax stamp is more than the c9

not to mention the increased cleaning regiment that would have to be practiced to keep it up and running.

The cleaning regimen is not an issue. We won't be using the suppressed C9 a lot,.. just trips to the range every other month or so to maintain a bit of proficiency,....Probably a couple hundred rounds per year or so.

I plan to have a suppressed C9 serve home defense duty when I am not there. The wife hates guns, hates shooting, and is terrified of the recoil and noise. If someone broke into the house while I was not there, though, she would be able to defend herself okay for one shot with the current weapons in place, but after she experienced (with no hearing protection) the report of an unsuppressed 9 or 357 in a room, she'd be in shock,... not to mention the permanent loss of hearing.

She can handle the recoil of a C9. They are heavy and not too scary if her ears are protected.

I just need a weapon that a non-gun person could pick up in an emergency and not be too afraid of pulling the trigger, should that unfortunate situation arise.

the c9 comp is the c9 compensated which has a longer pistol barrel with a compensator on the end. The barrel would stick out beyond the end of the slide far enough to be threaded for a can.

The weight of the supressor tends to compensate for recoil in other firearms making them easier to handle.

I believe that and I like it.

Now,.. where can I buy a couple of C9 Comps?

Where does one find a C9 Comp? A quick trip through common sources on the internet showed nothing.
I wonder if a C9 Comp barrel can be purchased from Hi-Point.
IDK if anyone has had any luck with "MOM" as it is out of production...
Whole Guns, maybe GunBroker or ArmsList auctions. Parts kits, I'm not
sure but these guys get them on fleaBay, maybe? That is a rare and
wonderful find, most likely. :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

Why not have a pair of hearing protectors next to the gun?
The active noise suppression ones amplify ambient noise so you can hear range commands from 5 lanes away.

I bought mine for like $15 on sale.
And legal...and cheap..

That is what I do right now, but the gun-deficient wife would never do that.

Within arm's reach, I have the weapon, a very bright flashlight, amplified hearing protectors, and athlete's eyeglasses (I'm slightly myopic).

The best I could ever hope for on her part would be she would know where the gun is, pick it up, and go bang bang bang in the general direction of the threat before she went to pieces. If she is terrified of the gun, she wouldn't even do that. I'm hoping I can get her past the being terrified of the gun if it is not so shockingly loud when she shoots it.

With your ears not protected, have you ever heard a 9mm or .357 go off in a small room? It is astoundingly loud.

It is loud. But if its your life on the line. Which is better hearing loss or possible death. She either gets it or not. Some are just not every going to be a gun person. If you can change her mind that's great. If not you need to respect that to.
