I'm getting into suppressed shooting and got my first suppressor/silencer. I did some research and read articles and watched youtube videos. One of the biggest annoyances/pet peeves I found is when someone is attempting to show the quietness of the suppressor all while shooting at a loud target, most likely a gong. It's just idiotic. I don't need to know that you can hit your target at 50 yards with the rifle. Just shoot it, I'm assuming that you and the rifle can hit the target at that range and if you wanted to make a video on the weapons accuracy you'd do that. Shooting at a loud target while attempting to display the quietness of a suppressor just seems to be defeating the purpose of showing how quiet the suppressor is in my humble opinion. I just want to know how quiet the suppressor is. So, if you are making a video on a suppressors quietness, please just stick to that and not accuracy proving. The 2 videos below illustrate this. The first one is perfect, quiet, not shooting at any noisy targets such as a metal gong or loud hissing waterbottles. The second is from a video maker I like a lot and have watched a lot of his videos but he almost always has the annoying habit of shoots gongs or other loud targets. I just want to shake him and go, "Dude, I know you can hit the gongs at 20-70 yards away or so, most people can, just display the suppressor's quietness individually please!" One video maker even made an awesome video where he had 2 cameras, one close to him so that you could hear the suppressor and one downrange near the target so you could hear what the shot coming downrange is like. There was a muted thud which is similar to shooting a gong, meaning you are shooting a target which will give create a sound, but since it's a soft-fleshed animal it's much quieter and the cool video from downrange somewhat makes up for it. Perfect Video: No loud gong Imperfect Video: Loud gong Video from shooter and downrange: So, if you're going to make a suppressed weapon video, please just display the suppressor's quietness and don't shoot at loud targets!
