The form 3 for my TiRant 9 was approved last week, and has just gotten to my dealer, so I'm going to go play with it after work today.

I'm going to fill out my Form 4 and then take it out on the range.

Anything I should know as a first time user? I'm going to have to swap out the piston before I shoot, but that's the only thing I know I have to do.

Hit me with some knowledge arfcom.

Chew some gum on the way there. That way, your face muscles will be warmed up, making the ear to ear grin a little less painful.

I'm super pumped about it. Taking the camera and plenty of ammo. Maybe now I can contribute to the suppressed pistols picture thread.

You are going to love it! I got my first two suppressors in a few weeks ago and I have been shooting them more in that time than I did in the past six months. Just make sure it stays tight on the end of the barrel; sometimes they will shoot loose. Bring a towel and check it after every magazine or two. My 5.56 suppressors stayed tight for well over 100 rounds, but I checked it every 20-30 rounds just to makes sure. Enjoy!

Anything I should know about changing the TiRant piston? It seems pretty straightforward... but...

I guess I'm just anxious at this point.

Pretty easy. Great can.

Make sure you have the spacer so you can shoot in on your 9mm AR.

Going to be using my USPc 9mm exclusively. That is... until I can convince my wife I need to thread additional guns.

I'd like to thread my 10/22 carbine and get the adapter for my P22 Walther.

BTW - how does .22lr suppress in the TiRant 9? It's going to be a while before I can get a dedicated .22lr silencer, but I figured since the TiRant is user serviceable, I could put some .22lr through it.

Better get a dedicated 22lr can.......they get dirty.

I wish you had a box of Fiocchi 158g 9MM. Those are quiet. Haven't seen any in stock in a long time.

^^^^ Yeah - what he said!
158gr Fiocchi is the quietest 9mm round I've found. 147gr is nice and quiet, but 158gr is better.

For your first range day with a new can, listen for the "slap" of the bullets bouncing off the backstop. (assuming and indoor range) That sound is usually lost to the supersonic "crack" of the round passing ~1,100 fps.
As the shooter most of the noise you'll hear will be the action noise - that doesn't change suppressed or not.
