a: Gun muffler ~
b: automobile silencer
What: "The point is a gun muffler is like a automobile silencer. The gun muffler reduces muzzle blast noise and does nothing for action, bullet flight or impact noise just as a car silencer only reduces exhaust noise and does nothing for wind, engine, transmission or tire noise. I only use a silencer for reducing muzzle blast noise. If I want to reduce bullet flight noise then I will use subsonic ammo and a small bullet. Big bullets like 44 caliber and above make a very audible humming noise even when subsonic. If I want to reduce impact noise then i shoot a soft target like dirt and not steel."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
