In this episode of TFBTV, James addresses another myth that has spread in popularity lately due to a number of highly publicized political stories: Is the silencer truly silent? Or does it just suppress noise? Does it really make that “pew pew” sound like in the movies? This video specifically addresses use in a higher-powered centerfire rifle – in this video, the AR15, which is similar to the M4 or M16 rifle used by the US military. James breaks out the decibel meter and compares a silenced rifle to a truck horn: Which is quieter?
