Have you ever played the ‘quiet game’? In Canada, suppressors are prohibited devices and only allowed under strict license to military and police, and a few lucky others involved in the Industry. To this writer, shooting a firearm without a suppressor is like driving your car without a muffler.  It’s plain rude, and I think would  eliminate noise complaints from the people fortunate enough to live next door to a shooting range.

What else would you like to see under the X-Ray?  It would very interesting to watch a grenade or a claymore explode.
