I saw one at the toy store and I want, but the only reason I want to buy a TiRant is that from what I understand the TiRant and the Osprey are the only .45 cans that are hearing safe when dry. If the short version is louder, it wouldn't be worth it for me. On the other hand, the standard one ought to come down in price a lot, too, right?

The 45-S was originally built for a military customer who specified that they wanted the can shorter, regardless of dB level. The S models are kind of like the Mini rifle models- they take the pop out of the round but are not hearing safe unless they are shot wet.

Or think of it this way- If the Ti-Rant 45-S model was just as quiet as the longer model, then why would AAC continue to produce the Tirant-45?

The standard Ti-Rant 45 is hearing safe shot dry.

I tried both at my local dealer. The S was much louder. The smaller size was nice but I bought the standard.

This is what I was thinking. but it wouldn't be the first time a company improved a design and then discontinued the older product. The salesman was telling me that he couldn't tell a difference when AAC demoed the new can but, well, it was the salesman. Thanks for the quick replies.

He probably forgot to tell you he has hearing problems. }:)
