A .22LR pistol with a suppressor is as close as you'll get to movie-style quiet

A gunshot is on average 160 decimals. A suppressor and silencer removes 30 decimals. So a silencer equals 130 decimals. But an airplane engine is 140 decimals. Um no, a silencer takes off more than that!

They forgot about a major factor like recoil. Also yes a subsonic round with a suppressor is about as loud as a airsoft gun.

1 can of spray paint + 4oz of tannerite. Shoot the tannerite with a 22 and watch it go boom
Higher firing weapons such as a hk14 or a m16a4,a3,a2 etc they can go through water faster because of the higher muzzle velocity and the speed the bullet is traveling

4:17 This is why, when you're not an idiot, you use special ammunition that doesn't break the sound barrier. This makes a silencer much more effective.

Suppressors** there's no such thing as a silencer since; like you said, you can't silence a gun.

"It's called a suppressor not a silencer" that say silencer because it's less confusing calling it a suppressor where you have compensater so thay say silencer witch is what it does
Dave Goldspink (25 days ago)
The reason why a fuel tank won't explode when you shoot it is because the it's the fuel vapour which causes the explosion. One you missed was shooting out tyres on vehicles it doesn't matter the round bullets will ricochet. Some useful information for you with the right gun you can shoot through an engine block and at the beginning of Dirty Harry Clint Eastwood was using a single action .41 cal Smith & Wesson because the props department was having trouble finding a .44 you can see Clint hand cock it when the thug goes for the shotgun and Clint says "go ahead make my day"

Actually if you use sub sonic rounds on your gun with a silencer it will be very quiet, still not as quiet as in some movies but extremely quiet.

What about: "Bullets dont usually kill you outright". The most annoying myth is that getting hit by a bullet in the chest will kill you. Even if the heart gets completely destroyed you usually have about 30 seconds of oxygen left to do shit. If the lung is not too damage you can do a lot of screaming and yelling at that point. Normally, only a direct hit in a very special region of the brain will kill you outright.

The obsession with 5.56 ammunition and the M4 being so lethal! Ever see a real sniper using anything smaller than 7.62? Also let's not forget how awesome 9mm pistols and submachine guns are at hundreds of metres.

A car tire rim is super strong,most rifles can go through but after hitting the side and then the rim then the next rim it’s energetic level is decreased, still can kill but lessens the lethality rate.

Myth #1. People (usually bad guys) die right away when shot. Unless it’s at a few exact spots, death from a gun is much more visceral. Usually there’s lots of screaming, bleeding, crying: you get the picture.
Eric Talkington (1 month ago)
I hate that damn near all semi-autos (in movies) when they run out of bullets, somehow the slide magically doesn't lock back lol. If you have an auto and you hit the last round, MOST guns will lock back and there is no way you won't know you're out of bullets. Then they pull the trigger and click nothing happens. This is ridiculous. Make the character use a revolver. That I could believe if they don't count the few rounds, there is nothing like a slide locking back on a revolver and it could happened that they pull the trigger and nothing happens, but not with most autos. Also, when people rack the slide or a Shotgun when they are getting ready to leave and then do it again when they get where they are going or confront who they are after. Hollywood, we know they didn't take the bullet out of the chamber so they could do it again so please stick to just once.

Um....some of these “myths” are true. I would suggest looking at real science. For example, a silenced 22 caliber pistol is pretty quiet. Also, a car will explode if a gas tank is hit. This video should be viewed subjectively and the information in it should be taken on a case by case basis.

Craig owen Lindvall jr (1 month ago)
Well this is the most accurate list so far. Congratulations Mojo. I nitpick everything so it's a compliment coming from me. Across the river about a mile and a half we here people firing off firearms with suppressors. We can notice the difference but it is still noticed from a mile and a half. The AR15 sounds like a .22 instead of the .223. It might not wake us up at night like it usually does without the suppressors but if it was fired inside a building you'd definitely notice a gun was just fired instead of the movies where nobody even hears a thing 😂😂

Forgot the myth that bullets make you go flying back when shot :) . Great vid thanks
DavidFMayerPhD (1 month ago)
Obviously written by someone who has never heard a GOOD silencer on an auto pistol firing subsonic ammo. There is absolutely NO sound other than the action, the bullet whizzing through the air, & hitting the target. Been there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihbfJFhRZak Even a rifle firing supersonic ammo gets reasonably quiet with a modern silencer, but the crack of the mach wave cannot be silenced. Bullets can travel a short distance through water but are deflected by the impact and don't fly straight. Cars are not bullet proof, but the metal can often (not always) deflect a bullet. Locks, hinges, etc deflect rather well. Not a secure protection, but better than NOTHING.

SUPRESSOR not silencer... that's why xD
