Having never shot a gun with a silencer, do they do anything besides reduce noise? In other words, I know they can't help with accuracy per se, but the weight up front would help with muzzle flip, right? What about recoil? If recoil is reduced then accuracy could be improved, in theory I suppose.

Can't speak too much as I don't own a suppressor yet. I have been shooting a friends 22/45 light with a can and he tells me the gun is very accurate w/o the suppressor but with the suppressor the accuracy dips a bit due to the barrel "floating". W/O the can, the barrel nut secures the barrel but with the can, the can does not secure the barrel as well. Now I have shot some suppressed rifles and they are very accurate.

The Ruger's aren't as accurate, but I was taking shots at a bowling pin at 250 yards with an S&W 41 this past weekend thru the Liberty can pictured above, and hit it once. I've also shot sub 2" groups with .22lr at 100 yards through the Liberty out of a rifle (PWS T3).
