Interesting silencer side effect.

Something not everyone knows about silencer use is gas blowback. It’s never seen in movies or tv. When you shoot a silenced firearm, there is the possibility of gas being blown back through the barrel and action and at the shooter. It can be anything from mild and barely noticeable to uncomfortable (sometimes called “gasface”). It can also cause junk and powder residue to blow back. Here’s a picture of my shirt after the last time I shot with a can. Some guns are worse than others. AR-15s are known to leak gas between the upper and lower.
