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!

There's also an adapter for attaching oil filters onto gun barrels and those things can get pretty big. They also do a decent job in reducing noise a noticeable amount.

The way that silencers work is that they catch some of the gas escaping slowing down the bullet so it doesn't go past the sound barrier

9:44 - Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's 10dB for every doubling of perceived volume (loudness), ~6dB for every doubling of sound pressure (doubling of voltage in an amp) and ~3dB for every doubling of sound intensity (acoustic power), not ~3dB for volume, therefore 180dB is just 4x louder (perceived volume-wise) than 160dB and ~100x more acoustic power (actual number is 3.0102999566dB), 100x less noise (if it were true) would make it more believable how people in movies don't hear it, imagine 0.01 (1%) of the noise a gun makes unsilenced. Just in case, here's the calculation I used for 3dB since it doesn't fit perfectly into 20 which is the difference between 180dB and 160dB: 180 - 160 = 20dB difference 20dB / 3 = 6.67 doublings of acoustic power (which is not volume) 2^6.67 = 101.59 times (since it's more accurately 3.0102999566dB, it turns out to be ~x100)

As a gun person, I like your description of how firearms and suppressors work, however, your stated decibel numbers are hilariously wrong. The loudest sound ever was Krakatoa, at 180dB, and could be heard 3000 miles away. Most firearms will be approximately 150-160 dB unsuppressed. Depending on the firearm, ammunition used, and silencer, this number can be reduced to 140 dB for large rifles, 125 for handguns, and even as low as 110 for subsonic 22 firearms. Note, the 110 dB is about as loud as dropping the slide on a handgun.

Really Austin? Silencer? Its suppresor. Everyone knows that. Well, everyone who knows anything about guns. I'm going to go ahead and guess that you don't know much about them. Because if you did, you wouldn't have called it a -silencer-. That makes it seem like it nagates all sound coming out of it. They don't! Mainly because they can't! Have you ever fired a gun before? If you did, you would know that the sound comes out of more then one place! I mean, you can't keep the barrel from making sound, or the breach! Because, I mean, when a casing comes out of a simi-auto, its going to make sound from the opening there. Theres just no way that it wouldn't! I mean... have you ever been to a firing range? The amount of sound coming off of some of the "Smaller" caliber guns is IMMENSE! Thats why they make you wear hearing protection! A six (generally around that length) inch long pieces of carefully crafted engeneering ment to -change- the report of the gun, isn't going to be able to keep ALL SOUND from coming out! You can't just go off of what movies show you! Or Television! They always get it wrong! I... I am willing to accept that you may have been told wrong but you are some one that we expect has put in the -propper- research into the subject! So how could you have failed me, no ALL of us with this bummble? You have a responsablity to make sure that people know the right of it! It is just unbelieveable that

There is another form of supresser that work exactly the same way that they make the home made ones. There known to be a bit quiter but suffer the same problem as the home made. How these supressers work is that they put rubber disks with some o-rings. What this dose is that the bullet shoots through the disks and the disk being made of rubber re fills the gap. Round 1 will be the most effective but round 14 is when the novelty runs off as you basically burn a whole into the disks. Nothing agenst him but they do have slide locks too that are made from one peace of sheet metal to stop the slide opening as well.

You’re wrong. They do make them quieter. You put steel wool or shreds of newspaper in the bottle and drill a small hole in the base for the bullet to escape through. The thicker the bottle the better, and the lower the caliber, the quieter

Actually, Austin there are real, existing weapons which are so quiet that saying "Pew" whilst shooting them is actually louder than the actual sound of the firearm. A good example would be the High Standard HDM pistol, The Welrod or the B&T VP7

Froggie Måned siden
To be fair, if I were to use a suppressor/silencer to take out an enemy in a stealthy way. Wouldn’t I just make sure the barrel is approximately close to my target where then I can use the target’s body to muffle out the noise on top with the suppressor/ silencer. What I mean is for me to directly put the barrel close to either the guy’s head or body where the bullet won’t be able to create a sonic boom. I believe Low Penetration rounds will help do the job. Wouldn’t that play into factor for being able to conceal the sound of my gun?

An increase of three decibels doubles the _energy_ of the sound wave, not the perceived volume. Humans don't really perceive anything as increasing linearly, whether that's light, sound, or heat. To double the _percieved_ volume requires a decibel increase of about 10.

There is a reason why the crack of a bullet passing is what alerts soldiers to a sniper. They don't hear the gun go off, but they hear the round go by.
