Video games try to get you to believe some CRAZY things, especially when it comes to technology. Now what does that have to do with The Last of Us, a game set in a post apocalyptic wasteland with technology rivaling that of the early 2000s? Today, Austin is talking about their makeshift weapon upgrades. Specifically the bottle silencers. Would these things actually work or are you just making yourself bait for some Clickers? Let's find out!

Something I would like to point out water bottle suppressors are not the only type of homemade suppressor there are also suppressors made of oil filters which are actually known to be very good and even work on some medium caliber weapons Example 1 Example 2 suppressors are legal to build for average civilians you just have to get a form one from the bureau of alcohol tobacco and firearms (ATF) which costs $200 and going through The process without a tax stamp can result in prosecution under the national firearms act with a quarter million dollar fine and up to 10 years in prison

6:21 subsonic ammunition is not rare at all in fact it’s actually very common and you can find it in pretty much any caliber ranging all the way from 22 all the way up to Big hunting rifles (like the 7.62 x 54mm which is commonly used to hunt everything from very large deer to moose and some large African game)

3:00 although no firearm can be absolutely quiet (you’re using a literal explosion to propel a projectile) but many calibers and specific firearms can become near silence for example the Russian as Val or the American ar family of rifles wen chambered in 300 blackout or .22cal when using subsonic ammunition but that is the key you have to use subsonic ammunition (ammunition where the bullet goes slower than the speed of sound) because that’s where the majority of the noise comes from the rest comes from the expanding gases that the suppressor helps to muffle it does this is by giving extra room to expand through a baffle system TLDR: although no firearm is completely silent there are some that come very very close

While gun itself may make a lot of noise, there is a relatively simple fix for this on some handguns. Just lock the slide. It's that easy. That, along with using wipes in addition to a suppressor, reduces the sound immensely.

SIS was using handguns with similar silencers as shown at 7:30, but inside were few rubber barriers which slowed down the bullet and sealed the expanding gas. the barriers wore off after a few shots, but those silencers were really effective.

You could do this or you can just do what I did and go get a 22 pistol (in most people's opinion the quietest pistol) No it doesn't work at all actually I think it may have made it slightly louder

I love it when people call something out that was addressed in the video, thereby proving that they didn't watch. As Austin pointed out, "silencer" _is_ an entirely appropriate and technically correct term to use. "Suppressor" and "muffler" are also correct. This argument is _stupid_ and only _stupid_ people are _stupid_ enough to "correct" people on it when those _stupid_ people are the ones who are wrong. Stop correcting people when you're wrong. It's _stupid._

Technically gunpowder doesn't explode, but just burns really, really fast. For an explosion one needs a specific ratio of fuel and oxidiser, that enables the charge to detonate and gunpowder does not have that ratio, hence it only burns really fast

He wants to sound scientific but he never explained bullet trajectory/accuracy. If you’re going to look at the physics of an event, you need to look more in depth to give us a full look at your “theory”....

Some silencers DO reduce normal High Velocity ammo to subsonic speeds through porting. See the designs used in an MP5SD or some of the custom integral Ruger MK series pistols (like the Amphibian or Sicario)

Something of note. Their are 2 types of suppressors out there. You have suppressors with baffles like the ones show here, and you have suppressors with rubber wipes. While baffled suppressors are by far more common, baffled suppressors are much quieter. Their main downside is that they only last around 10 to 30 shots before needing to replace those rubber wipes. The welrod is a British bolt-action WWII pistol with an integrated wipe suppressor, is often described as being pretty close to that movie pfft sound. The same is true for the knights armament xm-9, an attachment for a beretta 92 with a slide lock and wipe suppressor.

Something I would like to contribute: subsonic ammunition does not reduce lethality. When a bullet hits you, it isn't going to have much trouble killing you whether it's subsonic or supersonic, what it will do is lessen the chance of overpenetration. That's when a bullet goes *through* you and potentially hits an unintended target. For personal defense, it really doesn't matter, as most of those engagements are close-range. You start having a problem with subsonic ammunition at +50m. One more thing I would like to add, you don't have to have some special kind of gun to run subsonic ammunition, it's the same round, just less powder packed into it. However, to run a commercial suppressor you may need a threaded barrel which is only present on some handguns without customization. Also, subsonic ammunition would reduce the noise emitted even without a suppressor.
