With all of the scuttlebutt regarding whether or not a suppressor makes a rifle more dangerous, Jon Turner and Chuck Porter,  Hosts of Salute to Service, which airs every Saturday from 2-4pm on 106.3 WORD, decided to measure just how much a suppressor actually cuts down on the sound.  You may be surprised by the results.  Watch.

They used 5.56 MM supersonic rounds. The test was done with a dB meter standing 1.5 meters away from the tester per industry standards. 

The environment also impacts the sound. This test was done between two metal buildings. 

*Jon and Chuck are highly trained, fire arms specialists and decided to do the test without wearing the proper safety equipment.
