    Just remember, there will ALWAYS be another gun, another deal.
    I know, but I'm trying to buy an import one and it literally always out of stock and appears once per 6 months on websites like this

    Thank you for your response, I think I confused suppressor with a silencer, I Just looked up and seems like there is a long process for a SILENCER, not a suppressor
    A suppressor is a silencer.
    We don't use "silencer" because they really don't "silence" the weapon. Except in the movies.
    A suppressor/silencer will lower the noise ABOUT 30dB.

    Something like 160 dB to 130 dB.

    Ask questions like you are doing.

    There's always the Politics section. But if you go there, have a thick skin.
    Some people let comments there get under their skin, they blow up, and then get banned.

    Wait, now I think I don't understand something, is silencer/ suppressor same thing or different? And no matter if it is a "silencer" or suppressor, both need to be "legally" obtained?

    I see now, I thought Silencer makes it more quiet, and the suppressor helps with recoil, Yeah seems like I played COD with PUBG too much
    You’re probably thinking of a compensator which reduces barrel rise after a shot by sending some of the combustion gasses out of the top of barrel to “ Compensate “ for the end of the barrel to rise.

    Edit: act beat me to it

    I don't know which surprises me more: the fact this thread wasn't sexual...or that it's still not after two pages.

    I mean, those first 3 sentences had potential...
