In Hollywood there are a lot of gun myths.
What is the deal with the pillow silencer anyway?
Jerry Miculek tests this movie idea born on the silver screen.
Jerry Miculek fires a 9mm Hornady 115 Grain Critical Defense Hollowpoint bullet into a pillow and the targeted 2 liter plastic bottle.
The target is destroyed, and the polyester pillow actually did work as a noise suppressor. The sonic crack and high speed gases were absorbed and muted by the pillow.
So does this mean Hollywood myth actually work? I’d say yes. This is one Hollywood gun myth that is a reality.
