That's a good point too. IIRC, even the MP5SD (real one) still has a report somewhere in the 50 decibal range with a supressor. The purpose of one isn't to make the gun silent -it's to change the sound so it doesn't a) sound like a firearm, and b) make it difficult to tell where the report is coming from. Airsoft supressors are actually quite good at accomplishing those.
