Just put a muffler from a diesel semi truck on the end of your pistol.
You might need some bushings in between. Then attach it with a heavy
duty muffler clamp. Use a chromed muffler to make it look supa-cool.
After all, you want to impress the local gang bangers, when you kill the
dude with the kilo of heroin.
I used to hang with some avid gun enthusiasts years ago and had the
opportunity to fire both revolver (.357) and automatic (.22 long
rifle) with silencers. Both of these guys have a pretty pronounced
report. I don't think the silencer did much at all for the revolver
and this is true from behind the gun or watching it being fired by
someone else. The .22 was a different story. The normally loud
report was softened significantly but it was still a loud "pop". I
doubt if the sound has the long-distance carry of the open muzzle.
This might be why the Ruger '22 auto, or similar sized silencer
equipped .22 is the weapon of choice for some professional hit men.
Not that I'm a pro. :o)
Up close and personal, a .357 will blow in one side of the head and out the
other. A .22 will make a nice neat hole in one side and rattle around inside
making pureed brain. A lot less mess and a sure kill.
