How do you figure that a silencer reduces range? The dart going through thin air or the dart going through a ported peice of pvc should get the same distance. It will only screw up if the dart touches the sides of the ported barrel. What do you guys think am I right or no and why?
It all basically comes down to turbulence. It's easier for a dart to push a 1/2" wide cylinder of air to either side than it is to push air out through little holes and suck it back in through other little holes.
