Wrong Answer by Robert Farago | May 31, 2012 | 14 comments facebook twitter linkedin email [HTML1] comments Matt in FL says: May 31, 2012 at 14:03 About the hearing protection? Isn’t that kind of the whole point of suppression? Reply outdoorrat says: May 31, 2012 at 14:23 I’d be more worried about the vehicle and house behind that piss poor backstop that this jerks ears…. Reply outdoorrat says: May 31, 2012 at 14:24 *than* Reply Ben Eli says: May 31, 2012 at 14:35 That was really loud for something silenced. Was that a fake can or just the noise from the plates down range? Reply Buuurr says: May 31, 2012 at 15:21 Agreed. Sounded like a chainsaw used after 20 years of no oil on the chain.

Reply PT says: May 31, 2012 at 15:42 I think the noise was from the metal plates. Suppressed 147 gr 9mm is hearing safe with most quality suppressors. Reply Daniel says: May 31, 2012 at 16:20 Consumer camera microphones tend to turn down the volume when they detect that the sound entering the mic is too loud and will cause the recording to clip. Thus, so long as the mic itself is not overloaded, you will be hard pressed to tell a difference between a suppressed and unsuppressed firearm on video. And yes. His backstop sucks. Jackasses. That’s how people get hurt. Or in the case of a full-auto, more likely killed. Reply Mikeinid says: May 31, 2012 at 16:22 Love the backstop and downrange awareness. I was looking for a little muzzle rise. I wonder what half a mag through the back of that chevy would have sounded like? Idiots. Reply Jason says: May 31, 2012 at 18:27 The guy kept it under control, had eye protection, and the suppressor to render it hearing safe. I wouldn’t want my truck that close, but there’s a big difference between stuff and people. For all I know, they were going to shoot it up later anyway. Party on, dudes. Reply Tom says: May 31, 2012 at 21:34 I agree, this guy is a moron. Truck and house are way too close for comfort with this kid.
