    Improvized Silencer

    By the way, I saw this movie, where someone took a 0.33 or .5 l plastic cool drink bottle, which had a hole in the bottom, and put it, mouthpiece first, over the muzzle of his handgun. Then he enwrapped muzzle and part of the bottle with some cloth, and killed his chosen and unsuspecting victim silently.

    I can't imagine that this works? :think

    It actually does work surprisingly well, although not as well as a real silencer and of course not as well as shown in movies. I know people who have experimented with it for fun.

    I doubt it works very well but I suppose the logistics of it are relatively the same as a real silencer.

    It varies from state to state. One always needs a Class III license for fully automatic weapons or silencers. Some states authorize these; the more liberal ones (such as mine ) do not.
