    Water & gel help to eliminate first round pop, where the suppressor still contains a lot of oxygen. Some folks like wire-pulling gel because it won't evaporate immediately if you don't use it right away. Otherwise water does the exact same thing. Both should be used sparingly, and they only last 5-10 shots in my experience. Great if you're James Bond, not super useful for anyone else

    Some decent wet suppressors out there, issue is obviously the "wet" part.

    But if you gata be really quite first few rounds its the way to go.

    I prefer water because the wire pulling gel seems like it would leave a mess behind in the can.

    I don't do it often because, in order to make cleaning easier, I put a light coat of a grease similar to anti-seize on the monocore (fouling wipes off with paper towels) and it makes a grimy mess when adding water. Like previously mentioned, when using it on a .22 it eliminates FRP but .22 is so quiet, I cant really tell a difference once the oxygen the can is displaced and I'm shooting.

    I feel it makes a bigger difference with pistol cans of a higher volume like 9mm/.45ACP even after FRP and does quiet things down a few extra dB.

    I have a small plastic bottle with a medicine dropper bulb I fill with water and take to the range. That, or a plastic syringe will work to add specific amounts (to verify water volume isn't exceeding suppressor volume)

    If it's DESIGNED to be ran wet or only offers decent suppression when wet, toss it in the garbage. You'll get SO tired of it. You want a suppressor like an octane nine that will perform well dry but allow you to put water in it if you are inclined to do so

    I don't normally shoot my pistol cans "wet." it's annoying to have to do it over and over after 10 rounds. Just not practical for me personally.
