“When writing about guns and ammo, find an expert to take you to a gun range. Actually fire the guns you want to write about.”
“A handgun shot to the torso has an 80-95% survival rate in the USA. A rifle shot, same circumstances, 20% survival rate.”
“Any gun using compressed gas, will still be at least 110 decibels with a suppressor.” For comparison, a motorcycle is about 100 decibels, a power saw 110, and a rock concert about 115. A Girandoni air gun is actually almost entire silent. Can fire about 20 shot/minute as well.
