    There are a few of the Nagants floating around again now.

    There was also a Smith and Wesson revolver developed during Vietnam for use in tunnels; it used a cartridge that looked a lot like a .38 caliber shotgun shell. The slug was set inside a long, long cartridge which extended to the front of the cylinder. When it was fired, the cartridge expanded and the front edge pushed itself forward to seal the gap. It was supposedly very quiet.

    ...and the sickest is psychalogy for assuming we're merely using the fat man as a supressor to shoot somebody else.

    Most suppressed guns sound like a loud slap...like a BB/pellet gun. One gun that is very close to the Hollywood "whisper" would be the Ruger MKII with the built in suppressor.

    Suppressed vs. silenced

    I'm glad to see that some of the folks recognize the difference between silenced and suppressed. Most suppressed weapons have some residual sounds. The only truly silenced firearm was called the Delile Carbine Commando. It was produced during WWII and fired a .22 caliber cartridge.

    Here's an interesting tidbit;

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/q...&dopt=Abstract

    For you rebs out there, this is basically saying that you can look at a bullet and tell if a silencer has been used because it will be marked by the silencer. Also, the death remains might have bits of silencer inside it. Both of these are caused by bad alignment of the silencer to the barrel.

    .45 IIRC, neat gun too, and pretty darn quiet.
