Pay attention to the breach and muzzle
Orin Julie is not just a pretty face; she can shoot. Watch her muzzle control as she rings targets with a weapon platform on which she's obviously not had much experience. Also, watch the lack of muzzle flip and the almost non-existent gas from the breach. We designed the D9 suppressor for this platform but is becoming very popular on other 9mm carbines. Mating the D9 with the MP5 (Zenith Z5-RS in this video) comprises what is arguably one of the most easily controlled weapons for close-quarters professional applications and competition. Orin Julie is an Israel Defense Forces (Tzahal) combat veteran and founder of Alpha Gun Angels - AGA marketing agency.

MP5 Suppressor evaluation After Action Report
This one's a little longer than we like to publish, but there's a lot of info here. In this video series, we ask very experienced shooters to compare the Acadian Armament D9 suppressor to top-tier conventional suppressors recommended for use with the MP5. In this evaluation, a LE agency SWAT armorer and team members familiar and practiced with the MP5 put three suppressors through the wringer on the full and K versions of the MP5.

David ODonnell - Suppressor comparison
David O'Donnell shares his observations and opinions of the Dead Air Wolf 9SD, the Silencerco Omega 9K, and the D9 on the MP5 platforms. One remarkable moment is when David compares the sound attenuation abilities of the suppressors. We could discuss it further here, but you'll most likely get more out of the video. David is a good evaluator; he's a practiced and experienced shooter, he's managed a gun shop selling suppressors, he's a sales rep in the sporting goods industry, and he's a straight shooter (yes, it's a pun).
"I put all three bullets through the exact same hole!" Watch the muzzle action on this Tikka 6.5 Creedmoor with a Pantera on the end. Sometimes, you just don't have a spotter. On long shots in unfamiliar terrain, seeing the bullet impact allows immediate identification of POI to quickly adjust POA if a second shot is needed.
LE Agency Defender Evaluation 20181023a
This agency was frustrated with attempts to match a suppressor to their 7.5"AR pistol platform. Size, performance, cycling reliability and consistency, recoil and muzzle management, blow-back, accuracy, etc. were deal-killers for every option...then came Defender. The armorer, range master, operator and even the captain were all amazed with what that small and simple device could do. Take a look at their candid reactions.
