Oh. I just thought that the non-military nut goes for paintball. I'm surprised when people talk from the encyclopedic knowledge of military guns and equipment, then all of a sudden say "silencer". It kind of throws me off.

In fact the only time I've heard anyone talk about a suppressor, they've used the term "silencer". I began to wonder why it seems no-one uses the proper term (at least I haven't heard it). Mind you, I'm very new to the sport of airsoft so I'm not making an absolute statement, just a curious casual observation thus far.

I'm not trying to be pedantic, but I used to be involved in military sim computer game development (as the lead sound effects engineer), and the military nuts were always very pedantic about using "suppressor". I naturally thought the same applied here.
