For those of you that saw the .45 ACP carbine being fired briefly at Boomershoot and thought it was awesomely quiet, like a heavy-duty staple gun, please note the can was being fired dry. It’s a “wet” suppressor, and being fired with some water in it to evaporate and cool the expanding gasses it would be significantly quieter.
According to the website, on a 1911 the difference is 132.5 dB vs. 123 dB. Yo, doggies!
Always fun to see what sort of toys folks bring. Everyone should have at least one, I’m thinking.
