- Why do they have some sort of suppressor on two of the weapons?
- Suppressors brings the noise level down to safer levels, as well as reduces the spray of gas and concussion shockwave around the weapon when you fire it. The notion that it turns the weapon into some kind of stealthy assassin tool is made up by movies. In reality, most suppressors still land the weapon at 100+ dB. It also depends if you're using sub or supersonic ammunition. (Below or above the speed of sound) Supersonic breaks the soundbarrier, which means that the sonic boom will make a loud crack as well. Still, having suppressors is mainly to save people around the shooter from noise, gas spray and general discomfort. Good for when shooting around uninvolved people and civilians. Edit: Here you can hear the difference in noise. Like I said, this is a simplified explanation, because it also varies with what ammunition you're using and so on.
- I lost most my hearing in one ear when one of my earplugs fell out at the indoor range. It only took 1 rifle shot. Can confirm, guns are loud.
- I was in a room with no hearing protection when three handguns were discharged a total of 9 times. I now have tinnitus. Don't fack around with noise from firearms.
- The question then becomes: Why is guy in the middle to much of a douche to be as courteous as the other two guys are?
- Wonder if he had issues with the rifle not cycling consistently or something? Edit: Given the differences with their rifles, I wonder if they're personally owned? Or, with the sight on his rifle, if he just doesn't need or want it for his shooting purposes.
- Personal rifles. Suppressors payed with own money. Expensive glass, no suppressor.
- Personally owned rifles for an on-duty activity? That's a great way to lose a nice rifle for years. They shoot someone with one of those, especially if it's defending against a terrorist attack or something, it's entirely possible that they would be put into a federal evidence locker, never to be seen again as the case makes it's way through the courts.
- Well, lots of departments approve personally-owned rifles. It's preferable to not having a rifle at all. So long as it's not a federal case, you'll have it back in six months or so.
- Guns are loud and people panic easily. It's ideal to not make the 71,000 people in attendance panic in the event they need to discharge their rifles.
- There are also small rooms inside a stadium. These officers enjoy having hearing protection but not everybody does. Read more comments
