1. Silencer makes a shot silent
It is often in the movie can be seen as a silencer on the weapon makes it virtually silent shots. In fact it is not. On average, a shot from a gun makes a sound volume of 140-160 decibels. Most mufflers would cut this figure to 120-130 decibels. It is not very large and noticeable difference, especially when shooting indoors. Shot becomes muted and will not damage your hearing, but no more. Much more important is that the silencers hide the flame and improve the accuracy of fire. At the same time, they change the balance of weapons and create a lot of smoke.
2. Turn infinity
The cartridges in the movies usually end only when the scene should take place "fervent massacre" between the protagonist and the villain. Against this background, a very funny look long queues of firearms. The fact that modern automatic weapons, "spits" bullets very quickly. Roy death on average up to 700 shots per minute. So, M4 in the normal store 30 cartridges, which are shot in the automatic mode in about 4 seconds. With AK-74 a similar story.

3. The body armor protects me
In the movie Kevlar "armor" makes a person hardly immune to firearms. In fact it is not, or not quite true. Firstly, a lot depends on the class of used body armor and bullets that what it gets. Also, the distance between the shooter and target. Most types of armor can hardly protect against a shot from an assault rifle. On getting into the abutment and can not speak.
Also do not forget that the body armor "catches" a bullet in Kevlar, but it actually does not extinguish its energy. In other words, getting a bullet in the body armor, even a pistol - it is very painful. Often the "serious" gauges do not try leaving bruises and even break bones. However, better than a hole in the meat and hlyschuschaya blood.
4. cocked allows you to shoot
