    Ukraine: Man Detained With Gun and Cabbage Silencer

    Man Detained With Gun and Cabbage Silencer

    10/20/2003

    The Associated Press

    KIEV, Ukraine (AP) -- Police said Monday that they had detained a man caught with a gun and a head of cabbage he intended to use as a silencer.

    Police in the Black Sea resort of Yalta stopped the 48-year-old man who exhibited "suspicious behavior" and arrested him after finding a loaded handgun in his bag with a cabbage he said was "to be used as a silencer," said Iryna Halynska of the city's security service.

    The man's motives were not immediately known.

    "Our officers just shrugged their shoulders, smiling, as they've never seen cabbage used as a silencer before," the spokeswoman said. She claimed the thick vegetable could effectively muffle the sound of a gunshot.

    Would someone please do research on which veggies make the best silencers. This has great potential !

    "In other news, the BATF&E arrested a CCW holder for purchasing a pre-prepared bag of salad. A spokesperson with the agency said it was 'clear constructive possession of an illegal silencer.'"

    I wonder ...
    Anyone ever try registering a non-traditional sound suppressor?
    If you could afford the $200 for a laugh, a serial-numbered and registered cabbage, potato, wool blanket, pillow, etc would be amusing. Shades of the Canadian bloke who registered his glue gun and heat gun when told to register his firearms ...

    Hollywood will pick this up and start showing people using Desert Eagles that make little "pft" "pft" sounds when shot. Then pan to a close-up of a tiny Brussels Sprout attached the muzzle...

    Haha, that's good stuff. I wouldn't have used cabbage though, it smells bad. Lettuce would be ok I'd think. You don't wanna use anything acidic, it might hurt the finish on the gun :uhoh:

    The dolt! It only silences potato guns....

    First Godfather movie....The murder using the pillow as a silencer. 'Course it helped that there were all these noisy celebrations going in the street. Then he busted the pistol! And threw it away.

    Awhile back someone tried making an adapter that would allow you to affix a plastic coke bottle onto the muzzle of a firearm. The adapter didn't silence anything, the coke bottle did, so theoretically the adapter was just a non-regulated piece of metal. But the ATF decided that was a no-go and said the adapter was the silencer.

    IMO, eggplants, or rutabagas would be more efficient at suppressing sound. Maybe a turnip for smaller calibers.

    This obviously calls for Zero-Tolerance on the possession of unregistered cabbages for the safety of America's children!

    Damn ... hope I don't have to do a back ground check next time I go to the grocery.

    Has me wondering how long will it be before they close the "farmer's market loophole?" :neener: :what:
