Forgive my ignorance; within this context, what does "dry" mean?

Is that a reference to whether it is raining ?

Caliber ?

7.62 x 51mm NATO / .308 Winchester (commercial version of the military 7.62x51mm)

I am not an expert on this subject, but this is what I know to be true.
Suppressors (cans) come in two flavors, those that are made to be run wet with water inside the can.
The water cools the can and further reduces noise. Wet cans are not meant to be run dry.

My suppressor is meant to be run dry, but it is capable of being run wet if I want additional sound reduction.
I don't and never run my can wet because it's a PITA. It would also create additional back pressure and it can
cause accelerated barrel wear by pitting the barrel. IMHO, none of this is worth the slight reduction in noise.

When I want to shoot "Hollywood Movie Quiet" I shoot sub sonic ammo Cool

That 's what gun vaults r for. U put them down in your basement, and load them down with bricks on the bottom.

Another anti-burglary tip:
don 't be stingy with electricity.
Sometimes I go for a walk around 2 AM, to a local store.
I see that MY house is the only one on my block with interior lites on.
Some of my neighbors have complained of burglars.

Shud have said:

Sorry for spelling incorrectly.

When we were kids in Arizona, we had plenty of functional firearms,
but waterarms in the summer 's heat, were fun too.

Who was it that said: "there is a time and a place for everything" ??

I posted this thread in what I thought was a non-political section, but
some childish individuals decided to incorrectly tag it ... so here we are.

What is the gray object, with the Flag on it ?

@OmSigDAVID,
A Walter Mitty MK14 isn't much good at home defense.... especially if you keep it down in your basement under a pile of bricks.

This gun would certainly not be part of my home assault kit. I would also appreciate you leaving the lights on for me.

In my personal opinion,
the ideal anti-burglary gun is a .44 special revolver loaded with hollowpointed slugs
to optimize energy-dump into the target.

Tho I have a Ruger .44 Magnum Super Blackhawk,
I consider .44 magnum to be excessive overkill.
Even the .44 special is likely to overpenetrate at short range.
The hollowpointed slugs shud tend to put the brakes on it within the target.

If I were using my 7.5 inch .44 Super Blackhawk,
I 'd load it with .44 special, not magnum,
but my 2 inch .44 special Taurus Model 445 is a little more compact & manuverable.

You have made a wise choice in trusting the .44 Special and .44 Magnum.



I have a .357 Magnum wheel gun to pair up with my Winchester, but my defensive handguns are all Glock pistols.

Three are .45 ACP ... one G36 and two G21
I also have a 9mm G17.

All are loaded up with Gold Dot hollow points.
