Hey, welcome to the forum. Up here, aren't that many people to hear a gun when it goes off, so little need for silencers. We do keep a Mossberg 500 Police in the bedroom closet loaded with rubber slugs to discourage grouchy bears from breaking in the house, though.

they save your hearing, eliminate muzzle flash that can ruin your night adapted vision for several minutes, and keep the shot from scaring off other game, when you use subsonic .22's. On a shotgun, you'd see little effect, for a variety of reasons. The barrel walls are to thin to support a "can" of adequate size to get the job done. The large diameter needed to make the can effective would block the sights and ruin the fast handling qualities of a shotgun. Shotshells are loaded to over the speed of sound, so you'd still have "sonic crack". A 12 ga, at least, requires such a large hole thru the baffles that there would be little noise reduction. There's a possibility of the wad's becoming caught in the baffles, and then the next shot would be a danger to the shooter and people around him. Reflex and others make 12 ga silencers, but they dont reduce the blast much at all.
