No, the proper term is "silencer". Feel free to rewrite all of the patents and laws that use the proper term whenever you get a chance.


...and while you're out being petty and pedantic change the names of silverfish, dragonflies, koala bears, pencil leads, and tin foil too.


It's a totally ridiculous premise that "silencer" is somehow a purely marketing ploy. As if someone is going to impulsively pick up a box of them at WALMART and choose a six-pack of ACME SILENCERS over a box of ACME SUPPRESSORS? Really?
