Finally, A Gif To Teach You How A Gun Silencer Works

 

 

 

 

 

” The repetitive power of the gif makes it a perfect way to learn how simple machines work. We saw that with these awesome gifs that break down the mechanics of engines and handguns, and we see it again here with the silencer.

  SilencerCo posted this big infographic on its site, explaining not only how the piece suppresses the noise of gunfire but also just how many silencers there are around the country and the world.”

Integrally Suppressed 10/22

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Great Lakes Tactical makes integrally suppressed 10/22 rifles that are a beautiful thing to (not) hear.

  As I mentioned earlier in the week, I had the chance to do some shooting with the guys at Great Lakes Tactical in Ohio.  In addition to the full auto Glock, they brought along one of their integrally suppressed 10/22 rifles.  This was a nice piece of hardware.

  The 10/22 I shot used a Green Mountain barrel with a sleeve over it.  The barrel was cut and when combined with the sleeve acted as a very effective sound suppressor.  The sleeve comes off easily for cleaning, and gives the rifle a nice bull barrel look.”

Collapsible Stocks, Rails, Suppressors … Ergonomics Galore

 

 

 

 

 

” When I learned that I would be accompanying the rag-tag bunch of heroes here at Guns.com to SHOT Show 2014 I was as giddy as a child en route to Disney World. The excitement quickly died down when I learned my first editorial would be the industry trends article you’re now perusing.

  The SIG MPX gets around this by using a simple blowback mechanism, where the recoil assembly resides inside the receiver. LWRC and Troy Industries have a different approach. They utilize the North Eastern Arms Group’s Compact Carbine Stock System. NEAG released their CCS last year in Canada and while it impressed them, the Canadian gun market is a fraction the size of the U.S. one. Thankfully, several large U.S. arms makers have taken it upon themselves to bring this ultra compact stocks to the good ol’ US of A. Helping negate one of the least mentioned shortcomings of the AR platform: its fixed length.

  Shorter stocks, lighter more versatile accessory mounting options and sound suppressors are driving the market in a politically sensitive direction. While guns will be a political issue for the foreseeable future, all of these trends are pointing gun owners towards the end game of the ultimate home defense weapon. One that is lightweight, compact, fully customizable and hearing safe indoors. Rarely in any market has growth been so ergonomic driven. Although, in no other field are ergonomics federally regulated.”

The Semmerling LM-4 Pistol: Sleek, Strange, Secretive, Sought

 

 

 

” Sure, it looks like a smooth little semi-auto mouse gun but, as with many things in this crazy world, under it’s sleekness hides some strangeness. First, it’s not a pee-shooter, but rather a 5-shot .45 ACP hardballer. Second, its not semi-auto at all but rather more of a pump-action. It’s the Semmerling LM-4, and though it may look like a swan to some, at its heart it’s still one odd little duck.

Since the beginning of modern time, there have been rough handed individuals whose services are retained by certain quiet branches of the government to maintain a fragile system of covert operations. These

individuals are sent to exotic places, meet interesting people, and occasionally have to fight for their lives to make it back home.”

5 Ridiculous Gun Myths Everyone Believes (Thanks to Movies)

 

 

” Even in gun-crazy America, most of us aren’t shooting things as part of our day-to-day routine. So most Americans actually know very little about guns. Hollywood writers realized this a long time ago and, being writers, used it as an excuse to never do any fact-checking ever again. ”

 

#5.Silencers Turn Gunfire Into a Gentle Whisper

 

Where You’ve Seen It:

In The Line Of Fire, Die Hard 2, No Country For Old Men, Shooter, practically every James Bond movie.

The Myth:

Cautious spies and assassins know that if you’re going to take out a bad guy in an office or a library, be sure to use a silencer. It turns the concussive “bang” into a neutered “ptew.”


Above: Stealth.

Itty-bitty handguns aren’t the only things you can silence. Giant freaking shotguns can even be fitted with a special silencer that renders them inaudible in quiet suburban neighborhoods.

Also, while silencers look all slick and expensive and fancy, Hollywood says pretty much any long, hollow tube will do the job. Grab a two-liter, stuff it with socks or something, and you can be just as dangerous as Mark Wahlberg in Shooter.
