Everything you heard about silencers is (probably) wrong (if you were like me). 

I ran into a machinist at the range today. He was fully legal and had his stamps, so he let me try out his range of silencers. This is my  Walther P22,  my factory bullets.  

His Springfield XDm, again, factory bullets. 

.22 subsonics. 

  
I had always thought the ‘silencer’ was a myth, that for $300-1100, plus a $200 stamp, you could have something that dropped the sound 20 decibels. As you can see from these videos … I think I need a silencer. Suppressor. Whatever you want to call it, I’m starting a gun fund.
