Are you doing a lot of rapid fire shots to get these or are you doing a count down with the shooter to get in sequense with the trigger pull?

BTW, in that first shot, does that guy have a 35mm around his neck? It kind of looks like my Canon Rebel XS.

Sometimes I'll let off a blast of frames if they're doing a full auto "mag dump" or something. Sometimes I just try to get their rhythm and shoot when they do. If you see the flash, you missed it. I'd say its about 50/50 as far as results go. Mostly, I shoot guys that are shooting a butt ton of ammo. I also find that if I slow the shutter down to 1/100th or so, I get more flashes, but I don't like the way they look. I like the way the look at 1/1500 or more, but I get less of 'em.

Of course there is.

Shoot shooters, a lot. It's all about luck.

Also, a rifle with a short barrel and no flash hider is a big help. The bigger the blast, the better the chance of catching it.

Nice shots! no pun intended. I figure it would be easier with a non flash hider barreled rifle. It seems to be considerably harder with a pistol lol.

can = silencer, suppressor. as for a technical explication regarding acoustics/ballistics/n​oise reduction, i dunno (wiki?). Name implies what it does, makes the gun quieter when you shoot.

I'm wondering, if I had one of these on a gun could I shoot it in my garage and disturb people? Are they like on TV or in the movies, where there is almost no noise? What's a good brand? A store in town here sells Gemtech, I looked at them the other day and was surprised they're not that expensive.

No, its not like hollyweird portrays. Since when is hollywood accurate at portraying gun owners, or -reality- in general? This is no different.

With a .22LR and subsonic ammo, yeah you could shoot in your garage. Should you? No. Theres a lot of lead vapor released, even with subsonic ammo and you will do yourself harm in an enclosed environment without proper vents that an indoor range would have.

I have 5 gemtech can's. They make great products.

I've taken opposums out in my back yard with my SWR Warlock screwed onto my Browning Buckmark (.22lr) pistol. It sounds like a staple gun. The round hitting the target makes more noise than the gun shot.

Yeah .22 cans are spooky quiet for sure. I've had mine for just about 11 years.
