Thus saith experts like Hillarity and other tyrants about "silencers." After going through a few of the Bond videos after viewing the shoulder holster EDC thread video I came across this one with a HUGE "silencer" on a Walther P99/ Starting at 13 minutes, it's MUCH louder than in the movies. Too loud for an indoor range and no hearing protection. Not bad for an outdoor range. With a subsonic round, it would be much quieter, but still more than audible. Sorry Dumbocrats, its not silent.
