      I have 3. But it's been rarer until relatively recently and ultra painful until very recently, so a lot of people just plain don't know. You don't really understand until you have it and there are tons and tons of absolutely fricktarded nocans takes like fpwp floating around the community. Also:
      - It's still a $200 stamp, and still a minimum $300-400 for a can, and still a certain amount of first time effort. People are lazy and cheap. It'd be a different story if it was unregulated and $100 otc.

      - The awesome, fantastic boost in speed of approvals has in the short term resulted in massive out of stock issues. That'll go away eventually but "I literally cannot find what I want to buy in stock right now" is a valid excuse.

      Hopefully an explosion in suppressor usage and familiarity getting rid of hollywood meme shit will ultimately build enough political pressure to deregulate them completely. But if it happens it won't be for many years.

        You’re probably right. Most people aren’t aware of how easy it is nowadays. Once you use a silencer shop kiosk, buying a suppressor is stupid simple, and now you can get suppressors approved in less than 2 weeks with eforms

          Again though I think you (like me) are somewhat biased in your thinking anon.
          >how easy it is nowadays
          That's only RELATIVELY speaking. It's still more cost and work then any other gun accessory. I can just cruise on over to Brownells or whatever and order any other muzzle device, or scope or ammo or whatever the frick else beyond the firearm itself and have it shipped to my door with nothing else. And for guns I still just go in, fill out the 4473, give them my license, and a few minutes later that's it.

          Compared to before NFA is now definitely much easier. You get together an EFT and/or find a place with a kiosk for SS (though I don't think limiting yourself to SS is good anymore), you can use your phone for a selfie photo rather then having to go to a pharmacy or something, the forms are electronic. But it's still more setup work. And they're much cheapER and fastER but not cheap and fast per se.

          Also again, temporary issue but

            My first can I had to submit with paper forms and it took over a year to get approved. I’m not saying you need to buy through silencershop, but their kiosk system is amazing. Most of my suppressors were bought elsewhere and transferred to my LGS where I went through their “kiosk” (literally just the guy at the shop on his laptop for a couple minutes) and then it’s done.

            I agree that it’s more complicated than other firearm accessories though. Hopefully with this new proliferation of cans, it will become commonplace

            I did my best 25 yard group ever with a suppressor

            [...]
            they're not that bad, they're mostly empty inside

            It definitely helps that it’s a non-tilting barrel. My first suppressor was my octane 45 and I used it for my Glock 19. While it was fun and cool to shoot subsonics, it really was way too front heavy and annoying to have it flop up and down. It’s perfect on my vector though

              >My first can I had to submit with paper forms and it took over a year to get approved.
              Yes, that's why you and I are biased. We came to the decision it was worth it and went through it, repeatedly, under a far more pain in the ass situation. So the current one feels like miraculous sunshine. Plus we've already done the grunt work of electronic prints which is only one time, and set up trusts and all that potentially, again one-time. So now getting a new can is no mystery and each time is easier. But for somebody who has never gotten anything NFA it's definitely still more of a hump.

              >I’m not saying you need to buy through silencershop, but their kiosk system is amazing.
              Less so now, and honestly I've seen LGS handle it under the new system faster. SS was game changing but I think their area is going to shrink somewhat, particularly since fast approvals now means the Form 3 and shipping is suddenly an actual issue. When Form 4 was 8-14 months that it took a few weeks to get from SS to the LGS was basically a blip. Now that could be most of the wait.

              Anyway, just saying if you only go through SS you'll be missing out on some options imo, not that I haven't still bought stuff through them. Plus in a lot of areas there may not be an SS shop close by, let alone one with a kiosk. Driving an hour was more worth it before eforms.

            Some dealers I trust, not those SilencerShop idiots, have said that things have already slowed down a bit. Capitol Armory has had some stuff sit in stock for weeks that a month ago would sell out instantly.
            I think people are starting to realize that approval times are going to stay in the few days range for good, so the euphoria buying has slowed.

          I am OP. Like the other anon said, you don’t understand how much better suppressed is until you try it.

          You can't get them at all in Canada (yet) but they look like they'd really frick with the gun's balance. There are certain rifles I have that I already don't like having a Streamlight HLX out front because it makes the gun noticeably nose-heavy. I would definitely thread one on my bolt gun for deer hunting though

          The only one that’s actually front heavy is the shotgun suppressor, but it’s not *that* bad since it’s only a 14” barrel. You can also shorten the salvo 12 can more than I have it

                Stamp taxes are minor and go to the general fund anyway. Firearms/ammo revenue goes directly to the WRF under the Pittman-Robertson Act of 1937.

                So your taxes are directly funding them anyway anon, except you get less out of it then we do. If it makes you feel good to pretend though your call.

                Yes they are? What part of congressional appropriations from the general fund do you not understand? Almost everything with any tax at all feeds into the general fund, but even stuff that technically goes into other funds specifically (like federal gasoline tax for your motorcycle which goes to the highway fund) still just offsets money that otherwise would have come from the general fund. Money is fungible, so saying "all of this piece only goes to this one area" is just a political sales and accounting gimmick.

                You have a literal child's understanding if you think you can pick and what parts of the federal government you help pay for.

There are also taxes that go for all sorts of things from telephone to electricity. But more importantly, the businesses you buy from are all paying taxes.

                OK, well then you own a truck. The money you spent on it feeds back to the federal government, even if you bought it used. It's one economy. You also buy consumables like oil and other supplies. Some of all of that money goes to the feds. Even though you're committing illegal tax evasion using ag fuel on the public roads, you're still contributing and doing nothing but jerking yourself off while still using public gibs. And the fuel isn't sold to you at a loss. It's sold for profit, the profit of megacorporations, who have their income taxed at the federal level. Avoiding the extra road maintenance tax doesn't avoid funding the federal government my dear child.

                And leave it at that. Although unless every single cash transaction you make is to a person or business who are also committing tax fraud then some of your money still funnels back to the government, granted at maybe a lower rate.

                So you’re committing tax fraud.

        Yeah but when you aren't a perpetually single dude in a crummy apartment in your early 20s that's the difference between 1000s of rounds of ammo vs a muzzle device that does nothing without ammo to shoot. $750 is your yearly ammo budget when you have people depending on you like family, lifelong friends, your local Church, etc. I'd rather take the ammo than the LARPressors

            Probably but only because a home invasion will probably never come up in reality either. Most of us are never going to need our guns in self defense. They're for black swan events, hunting, and for fun. But if you do need to use your gun to shoot someone, for once it actually is probably going to get checked out.

            This comes up every suppressor thread and ultimately it's your call. But it costs exactly zero extra dollars to file under a trust. And there is minimum and shrinking penalty, I've seen trust approvals below 40 days too in the past few weeks. Personally I'd rather have the flexibility of legally letting family or good friends use my funs for training and defense if I want when it costs me nothing extra except maybe a few more weeks of waiting one time only. It seems moronic to manufacture any extra stress for $0. But everyone can make that call for themselves.

                AFAIK it's never been CONVICTED once (and upheld on appeal), nobody has ever gone to prison for the gun they used in self defense. But liberal prosecutors have definitely tried to prosecute people for political reasons, and there have been lots of examples of dead letter law getting resurrected, even from the 1800s, to threaten people.

                However you try to spin it the objective fact is that if your wife uses your individual NFA gun to defend herself while you aren't there she has in fact committed a federal felony. If she/you lie about it now you've committed more felonies and more likely to be prosecuted ones too. If you don't you're at the mercy of the prosecutor. That's not a place I see any reason to be in for a good shoot, when again it costs literally nothing extra. Why WOULDN'T I use a trust is more my question. Because I might have to wait a few extra weeks? I waited half a year or more in the past, repeatedly.

                No, it literally isn't you fricking moron. Because that's literally not illegal. What are you not grasping here? Prosecutors overreaching and trying to cast shade with something that's not in the law is part of why we have a process, defense lawyers, and judges. But that's not at all the same thing as an actual felony that you personally just don't like.

                People absolutely do get prosecuted and go to prison for chickenshit felonies that were never intended to be so broadly used. Section 1001 is a great example. It was meant to be for serious obstruction, but it's long since gotten tossed in as a free gimme felony to manufacture crimes out of nothing or add pressure to plea bargain.

                But it still sucked for him in the meantime. It sucked more then paying $0 and waiting a few extra weeks. And he was indeed innocent. Here we are talking about an unambiguous actual felony, even if one that doesn't currently come up much. There's nothing illegal at all about having a WML or optic on your legally owned HD gun. There is something illegal about NOT legally owning or having the right to use said gun.

                This is like advocating to have your wife's HD gun be a gun that's stolen. It may be unlikely anyone will ever know but if it's used in defense odds are higher they'll check it and if they find out you're now at their mercy.

                Yeah this shit reasoning comes up every thread. There are a hundred ways for this to legally frick you if they have any reason to ask about it or there is anything that points to it.

                Again bottom line: you are trying to come up with all these justifications for something that isn't actually extra cost or work. If trusts cost $10000 and a $1000 stamp and took an extra year for approval I'd totally understand 99% of people running the risk. But they don't, so I don't.

Here we are talking about an unambiguous actual felony, even if one that doesn't currently come up much. There's nothing illegal at all about having a WML or optic on your legally owned HD gun. There is something illegal about NOT legally owning or having the right to use said gun.

                This is like advocating to have your wife's HD gun be a gun that's stolen. It may be unlikely anyone will ever know but if it's used in defense odds are higher they'll check it and if they find out you're now at their mercy.

You've also made abundantly clear that you're incapable of self-consistency, but it probably won't ever matter.

                I think you need to increase your meds and look up a little something called necessity defense. Your own logic would mean you'd be a felon if you disarmed an attacker of his illegal NFA weapon/gun with NFA accessory and used it on him.

                >necessity defense
                1. This doesn't apply when you yourself created the situation. There is no necessity in registering as an individual or as a trust, nor any time imminence. You had all the months/years between the time you decided to get it and whenever the HD happened. So good luck.
                2. Affirmative defenses are very good to have available to us and key parts of liberty. But as a practical matter they're a lot shittier then absolute defenses and not having something be an issue in the first place.

        fwiw:
        1. people have made full shroud suppressors for revolvers that cover the gap too. Of course those are bigger, heavier and clunkier so you could argue less than ideal but can be done.

        2. Most of the noise is still muzzle blast. "Not going to work very well" is kinda relative, if a regular semi handgun goes from 165 to 135 dB and the revolver goes from 165 to 145 dB, yeah that's "much worse" but it's still a huge noise reduction and still means you can get away with lighter more comfy earpro for much longer sessions.

        Not saying revolverbros all need to rush out and get cans or anything just that I think the sentiment of "no point" gets overdone a lot.

        I entertained that notion very briefly, and much like the AKS-74U any desire to get it vanished as soon as I actually shot one. It's absolutely ludicrous how fricking filthy the SD gets, and since I'm not limited to 124gr. I'd much rather just get 95% of the appearance and 100% of the experience without the headaches.

      Honestly because unless you are a machinist you aren’t making better cans at home. No, drilled baffles in a tube isn’t better. I’ve heard those and a real one back to back and there’s a difference. Especially once you go the “form 1 wink wink” route at home, you’re still spending a lot on titanium parts or you end up with a super heavy all steel can. The government already knows you have guns. You’re already on a watch list or you’re a giant b***h. The last impediment was the wait time and now that’s pretty much gone.

        Which isn't even cheaper, it's still $200 and still is the same submission and reqs. It's just that in the old days it used to be ~30 days instead of 240-400 days for Form 4s, that was the primary attraction of form 1 cans for non-learners.

        Although if someone here DOES want to do one as a cool project to learn some real machining or the like don't let it dissuade you, making your own stuff to get a feel for the process and play with it even if the result is less then professional is based.

        This is bullshit. Suppressors are really pretty simple, and even most modern suppressors uses the same geometry and tech as old ones. 99% of cans on the market that arent flow through designs just use K baffles in a tube, the only differences are material choice, size and spacing. You can do all of this easily with basic tools if you’re willing to compromise on weight and material choice

                Yeah that’s totally fair. I’m hoping to eventually put together a guide for expedient homemade suppressors that hold up well enough for serious use. The nice thing about homemade cans is they’re usually made of heavier duty stock than production ones, since weight is less of a concern. I can beat someone over the head with the heavier can I made and it would no worse for wear. I plan on using those Amazon funnels for baffles for my next form 1, if they work well it will be a huge step up in simplifying the process while keeping things discreet. My current cans use baffles i formed out of flat bar with a custom punch tool, but that’s way above and beyond budget/effort for most people and it’s really limited in how much depth you can get before the baffles crack at the middle from forming

                First I would love to see that. Second, check out the FTN3 and FTN4 (soon) on Odysee. They’re 3d printed and you can do a carbon fiber or aluminum tube shell over it. They handle pistol rounds very well and some get hundreds of rounds of 5.56 through them. Others have busted after like 10 rounds of 5.56. It’s plastic at the end of the day so durable and longevity isn’t there, but the barrier to entry is extremely low. Printers are $200-250, it’s less than $5 in filament, $20-50 for a tube, and some epoxy for rifle rated can.

                Kinda changing topic but I think everyone should get a 3d printer just for .22 suppressors. They work very very well and cost next to nothing. Even if you’re worried about legality and storing them it takes a day to print and costs like $3 so just throw it away after you’re done using it.

                Only issue with current polymer 3D printed cans is they’re disposable by default. Cheap and easy to make, but you wouldn’t want on as a real part of your kit for a proper fighting rifle. Homemade stainless steel cans are extremely effective and not a lot of work if you have access to some basic welding equipment
                I think you could get away with doing the whole can with just a spot welder, but some tig welding can make things a lot more serious

                Yes, as mentioned in the thread already that could genuinely be pretty revolutionary over the next ten years or so, and we're definitely going to see ever better, easier and more advanced 3D laser sintering systems. It doesn't even have to get to the individual purchase level, like say one got "merely" down to $50k all costs included. That's way more then anyone but ultra richgays would spend, but an LGS or gun club or whatever could definitely potentially swing it and then rent it out. Only 1000 uses amortize down to $50 a pop, and that's no big ask in most areas. Maybe another $30-80 for running costs (appropriate metal feedstocks, power, maintenance, building upkeep etc), open source community plans or your own, absolutely top tier performance cans customized exactly how you want for $80-130 (in today's money).

                That'd be damn cool.

    Can someone tell me why gate lok and other A2 direct attach methods are bad? I haven't found any argument other than "nah dude don't use and A2 get this cool suppressor compatible muzzle brake" or "It's outdated"

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      >Can someone tell me why gate lok and other A2 direct attach methods are bad?
      I'm about to direct attach in my new build, but there are a few caveats. First obviously compared to a good QD or other system it's less trivial to swap cans between guns. Back when every can was a pain there was more advantage to not dedicating cans per gun and really leaning into flexibility. In practice particularly now I think this a little overdone but it's a consideration. For me this can is going to live on this gun so I don't care about that.

      Second, for some cans and some barrels it's hard to get a really good connection, or the barrel end isn't thick enough. An adapter of some kind (whether it only does that or can do double duty as a muzzle brake or whatever) can get around that. In the build I'm doing I'm having the barrel custom done to a taper that mates with the can's direct attach so again won't be a problem, but for generic advice it makes sense.

      Finally some muzzle devices are potentially useful anyway for other stuff or enable other useful features, like the hux cans screw on backwards so that the action of the gas going clockwise helps them stay tight. Tying in to both above, also means can loctite the adapter, still have easy in moving around the can or removing it for cleaning but really positive assurance nothing will come loose in usage. HUB standardizing a lot of stuff for cans also may be useful going forward.

      Again though I don't think any of this makes direct attach bad if that's what you want and works well with how you'll use it. Anything else does add an extra part and a bit of extra weight.

      As in barrel aren't threaded, or as in no adjustable gas so they don't handle bp well? Either totally valid and understandable good reasons, but if it's the latter just know there are increasing numbers of designs that provide solid suppression but extremely low back pressure and will run on anything without any adjustment. The tech is evolving pretty quick right now.

      Granted, you might take that as another good reason NOT to buy right now, precisely because new stuff is moving quick so another few years for it to settle down and all the low hanging fruit to get picked could make a real difference.

      >plus you still need to wear earpro
      - You don't need to wear as much though and it's still much safer if you do more shooting then like, single digit times per year out hunting and that's it. Earpro can only give you a theoretical max of 40dB reduction and in practice more like 33, and that's if you do it right. In any sort of practice with lots of rounds, particularly if there are any hard surfaces around to increase exposure, it's not ideal. Cans double up perfectly though, so can+earpro can easily hit 45-70 dB reduction in total. Significant difference.
      - It's there when you don't have earpro on. Or a bit of safety factor if your fit was a bit off.
      - It helps others around you, like your neighbors or hunting dog. Obviously this varies a lot in importance, if you only shoot at urban ranges, or conversely if you only shoot on BLM land or whatever middle of nowhere, then this doesn't matter at all. But some of us are in rural-ish areas, as-in, there's nobody for a 1/2 mile but not nobody for 5 miles, and we still shoot on our own land a lot. Suppressor is polite and can ease neighborhood relations in that case, you can shoot at times of day you might otherwise really bother people, shoot more volume same.

      Not gonna claim they're for everyone but I think more people would use them if they were off the shelf for $50-100 and no bullshit, exact same as a muzzle brake. They can do stuff earpro alone doesn't is all.

          Ah, yeah I've heard of that and blows my mind. IIRC in the US suppressors are legal in 42 states and banned in 8, but in one of the legal states (can't remember which) they don't allow them for hunting. Which in principle should be one of the best use cases, since a lot of people like to hunt without earpro for not just comfort but safety and situational awareness, plus people have dogs and friends.

          I assume it's some sort of leftover anti-poaching fear mongering, as if
          a) that's even still some big concern vs the opposite of "there aren't enough hunters deer pops are exploding"
          b) a poacher would give a shit, or wouldn't just use a large bore airgun or something totally unregulated

      >Is it worth it to suppress 5.56?
      Yes. Don't let perfect be the enemy of good mainly. 5.56 is definitely not the best round to suppress, but a good can will still take noise down to like 145 dB even out of a 10" SBR barrel (out a 16" it'll go below 140 barely). That's definitely not even remotely "no earpro" territory but it's a massive improvement over like 170 dB that it'd be unsuppressed. So if you wear just simple 25dB NRR ear buds along with it you're down into the 120 range which is going to be fine all day. That's not insignificant at all. Plus there's

      , might not apply to you but if you do go innawoods with neighbors around or buddies everyone being suppressed is pretty nice.

      If you care heavily about flash like for having fun with nods probably want to get steel or inconel imo, I've got titanium cans and while sparks go down big time after 100 rounds or so there's some once in awhile. Pure Ti always has some spark risk with center fire rounds. You can also go for suppressors that can take extra flash hiding, or pick something that weights less towards max sound and more towards other factors. But I do think it's worth it.

          (honestly I figured out what you meant but couldn't resist razzing you a bit that was a funny typo)
          Anyway it'd be helpful if you clarified exactly what you're after. All the super nice options are $1k+ but that's clearly gucci territory and I don't think remotely as worth it now that wait times aren't so bad. That said a few ideas:
          - Aero Precision Lahar-30. Punches about its weight, surprisingly solid 5.56 performance for something that can also run 30cal, is <6" long, and you can get for <$650. That's probably one of the better bang for the buck 5.56 options. Not the lightest since it's steel+inconel baffles but tough.

          - Polonium-30. Been recommended for awhile, even cheaper at <$550. Pure stainless, so a few oz lighter then Lahar, also goes to 30, also compact. Maybe not quite as tough but if you're not doing full auto whatever. It's a proven solid value can though.

          I think those two are pretty decent in the $/value curve. You can pay double to triple for mildly better suppression and significant weight savings but there's massively diminishing gains.

            I'm mainly interested in suppressing to reduce concussion and muzzle flash. I'm not looking to take out a line of credit for a gucci tier suppressor. I was looking at some YHM cans which seem to be around the prices you had mentioned. The other concern I have is the NFA waiting period and stamp. Are the prices listed on website including stamp price or are they pulling the "its $650 without the stamp."

              >YHM cans
              Perfectly solid from what I've heard and sounded close at the range, I don't think their older one performed quite as well as what I suggested but even cheaper and the difference is splitting hairs. Main thing is one of the guys said it was pretty gassy which a lot of older cans were, agb a must. But dunno how their newest ones do. But they've been around a bit and seem to do fine budget stuff.
              >Are the prices listed on website including stamp price
              No, never. The stamp is a separate thing not part of the purchase, depending on how you file they'll have nothing to do with it at all, you buy the can have it go to your LGS and you pay the ATF directly. In the old days we'd literally mail the ATF a check. Some of the online sales places like SS will take care of that themselves with a separate purchase if you want but nobody lists can prices with it. Remember certain buyers are also just plain exempt.

              In the past sometimes there have been sales and deals shops would run to help cover stamp, but usually only on fancier cans, and also given the rush dunno if there will be sales like that again for awhile.

                Yes, wait times going from 200+ days to a week or even like literally 2 days has unleashed a flood of demand. Manufacturing will ramp up slowly and the big flood will die down as the biggest first rush recedes. Keep an eye on LGS and such vs online perhaps. SS isn't as important anymore.

                There are services to do an EFT for you by mail, and also ones like National Gun Trusts that can do it digitally via certain UPS stores. Once you have your .EFT file you're set, you can then use that with whomever going forward.

        That's probably the big thing really. Suppressors are simultaneously a big deal but don't necessarily seem that way to a lot of people because hollywood and video games have fricked expectations so much, people think you stick it on and now you can mag dump and it's a can of compressed air. Which is probably also part of why there isn't much pressure to deregulate them, people think it'll suddenly be this explosion of criminals gunning people down and nobody notices is because the guns are SILENCED.

        Only way to even approach hollywood quiet is a full package, very good can, gun designed for it with quiet action too, a well suppressable cartridge with complete burn, and subsonic velocity.

                Agreed. I thought the absolute best chance was 2017 and GOP blew it, and it would indeed have been nice to have done sooner. But I'm a little more optimistic now that slow and steady will win the day in the end. The simple raw growth of can ownership and usage will itself naturally dispel a lot of the bullshit myths and fuddlore around them, and make them more and more of a political force. I think the dam will come down eventually. Even the pressure to speed things up has paid dividends.

They had confused it with SBRs and MGs, for suppressor and AOWs no form filing is necessary. So letting them know that is what a community should do.

                Again, nothing wrong with
                >I just don't feel like even the small amount of extra effort, time, or money is worth it to me. If that went away I'd think about it.
                What's weird is when people decide that's not good enough and then start to come up with "objective" justifications which aren't actually correct vs just owning it, and then get mad when other people take their stated reason serious vs somehow mind reading and understand it's a lie and really it's just the above.

                I’m still not buying one yet. You can deconstruct my reasoning in a text wall if you want but I’m just not buying a suppressor until the NFA is amended.

      Honestly because unless you are a machinist you aren’t making better cans at home. No, drilled baffles in a tube isn’t better. I’ve heard those and a real one back to back and there’s a difference. Especially once you go the “form 1 wink wink” route at home, you’re still spending a lot on titanium parts or you end up with a super heavy all steel can. The government already knows you have guns. You’re already on a watch list or you’re a giant b***h. The last impediment was the wait time and now that’s pretty much gone.

      Those ones work but they are worse if you’ve ever shot them side by side. It’s very apparent. Also having one kind doesnt preclude you from having the other.

      Thin symmetric would have to be very long to do well. Shorter and fatter is preferred by most. Thin/short asymmetric can work, but it's more complicated to design and manufacture and has more potential to not work with some stuff people have wanted to do like wrap cans with handguards.

      This is another way the NFA has fricked things from multiple angles, particularly the wait up until recently. It has pushed the market towards extremely generic designs, geared towards maximum flexibility vs better addressing niches. Maybe that will change.

                Suppressors basically act as a faux barrel, allowing gasses to expand more which gives the bullet a little bit more velocity. It’s not extreme, but it certainly doesn’t slow down the round

      >The price point is just too high for what it is
      I don't agree personally, $600-700 (including stamp) one time for decades is acceptable in the context of guns for something like this imo. That said though:
      >but is there a chance we'll get better prices for them in the future?
      Yes, for two reasons. First the collapse in wait times has greatly boosted demand, which will ultimately result in more mass manufacturing. That alone will drive down prices as it always. Making cans much easier to replace also removes one extra price driver.

      Second is that the stamp does create a hard floor price. If you have to pay $200 anyway, then most of the market probably won't want to get a $50 cheapshit thing with that, they want whatever it is to last and perform well enough. But the stamp is fixed in the original almost 90 year old law, which means it's value is eroded by inflation every year. When the NFA was passed the stamp would be like $4800 in today's money, it was meant to be exclusively for the rich. Even a few decades ago, stamp would have been like $370 in today's money, and in most of those years inflation was 2% or less. With it and wage growth running hot right now might effectively drop by another 50-75% in the next decade. That'll keep lowering the floor.
