    Super new to suppressors and purchased one. I wanted a backpack gun so have a vertx gamut and a 7.5” barrel .223/.556 ARP. Shot the suppressor and the noise hardly changed. So in my head I’m thinking I have 2 options switch to 300 black out and run subsonic rounds on a 7.5” or move up to a 10.5” barrel. Remember it’s a backpack gun intended for a maximum of 10-15 yards not 150yards. In your opinion what’s a better option. 10.5” I won’t be able to dedicate suppressor in my book bag

    5-8″ if your going subs .300
    I really like something along the lines of a sig rattler, especially because of the folding stock. You could always pair a law folder with your favorite 300 Black AR of choice

    If it’s strictly a back pack gun, I’d run a 300.

    For that range, I’d do a 9mm pistol/carbine thing.. like a APC9 Pro, Stribog, etc…

    What’s the purpose of the gun? Just having fun in the woods? If so I’d consider getting another caliber (.22s are super fun suppressed and cheap to shoot). For self defense, a gun in a backpack isn’t gonna do you much good unless the bad guys are kind enough to announce their intentions and give you a minute to get the gun out of your bag and assembled.

    .300 blackout is great in short barrels and suppressed, but like you said, it’s expensive especially for subs. If you’re wanting a hunting gun though that can pack down small, it’s the way to go.

    If you want a rifle caliber for just blasting and having a good time in the woods, 556 would be my vote. Although it’s definitely not hearing safe even with a can, foamies are cheap and easy to carry with you, and a can takes off a lot of the bark so if you’re on public land you’re not gonna be letting everyone within a mile radius know you’re having fun in the woods. Although I’ve got a 300 blackout that’s pretty sweet, it’s tough to enjoy shooting subs when you know each magazine is costing you $45 bucks in ammo.

    How well does the gun (currently) fit in the Gamut? I’ve been looking at that same bag for the same purpose. And are you running a folding stock?

    Which suppressor did you purchase?
