My "work group" uses Innovative Arms’ suppressors for our "assignments". The Shepherd suppressor not only does a phenomenal job reducing the sound of 230gr .45acp & 147gr 9mm ammo, but it helps to mitigate muzzle rise/recoil on our H&K HK45's & USP's and Walther PPQ 45's. This can is dependable, user-serviceable, and performs flawlessly. We have experienced zero (0) issues with the Shepherd suppressors, and the Staff at Innovative Arms are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. BRAVO ZULU

This is my first pistol can and I couldn't be happier. I'm using it on .45 .300blk and 9mm. Liking the versatility and sound reduction.

The Shepherd .45 suppressor is not only of great value, but it far surpasses many of the other "big name" suppressors my friends have. It's a perfect balance to my .45 HK and I don't hit the range or dispatch a wild boar without it.

Easy on the ears and easy on the wallet. I've had mine for two years and use it on 9, 45 and 300 subsonic. Make sure you clean it well when you're done shooting and you'll be good to go.

I've had the Shepherd since 2015 and have put many rounds through it with no problems. Mine is used on a FNX 45 Tactical and is not only very quiet, but also reduces recoil and does not compromise accuracy. It stays attached to my pistol always because shooting without it is just not an option just makes shooting that much better!

I am very happy with my Shepherd and have no hesitation on recommend it. I have about every piston they make for it, and use this one suppressor on 9mm, 40, 45 and .300 blk. Something they don’t mention, which is a feature I like about the Shepherd is that the suppressor can be adjusted for point of impact on pistol by pulling the suppressor forward and turning it right about 90 degrees until you have it where you want it.  It’s a quiet, versatile suppressor that has a lifetime warranty and is at good price.
