 HELP! with .40 suppressor on Glock

Hey Everyone,
First off I got my very first Form 4 back just this past monday for a .22 suppressor for my Walther P22 and couldn't be happier with how if performed. Now I'm addicted and had a few questions. I currently have a Glock model 22 in .40 with extended mag, laser, night sights, etc and I want a suppressor for it now but after just a few minutes of research I have found that there are almost NO videos to listen in on to determine what kind of performance I could expect to see. That being said, there is an overwhelming amount of .45 suppressed pistols that sound great! So I'm torn because I have heard a lot of people kinda hinting that is is not worth it to suppress a .40 which bums me out because I love my Glock and it would be WAY cheaper for me to get a new barrel and suppressor than buying a whole other gun in either .45 or 9mm and suppressing that. So I was wondering if any of you guys have a suppressed .40 and if you do, whether or not it was worth the $, tax stamp, and wait (although my form 4 took only 5 weeks ) or just disappointed that you had the thing. I primarily shoot just plain FMJ 180Gr Remington UMC and the two suppressors I am considering are either the AAC Evo or the Gemtech Blackside. ALL Input and Comments are extremely appreciated, Thanks

This year it became worth it to suppress 40 and 45. Get either an Osprey or a Tirant.

The Osprey-40 will be the quietest available. The 45-Osprey will be slightly louder but will allow you to run the silencer on .40 and .45 hosts. Your call.

The Osprey 40 would be your best bet by far!

You could also get a 9mm can and buy a 9mm/40 conversion barrel for you Glock. Just an option to look at if you can not find a can that fits your need.

Osprey would be my choice; wish I would have waited, but the HTG is good.

I have an AAC Evo-40 that I am very pleased with on my G22.
The Evo-40 may be of "older" technology but I find it very quiet w/my sub sonic loads or even factory ball.

I'm happy with my SWR GS-40 on my Glock 22, but I would have ordered the Osprey instead had it been available at the time.
