    Do a video on ballastics tracking of hollow points vs round nose. Movies never show barrel striations matched to a hollow point. Is this possible?

    Placing a pillow over something like a hammerless revolver will muffle the report a great deal. As you demostrated shooting directly into the pillow definitely does not alter the report much at all. Enjoyed the vid.

    There was an episode on the show CSI that someone used a soda bottle and shot two rounds without much sound. Please try a soda bottle next and see how many shots you can get before it doesn’t suppress any more. Thanks for sharing.

    Another great video! I've seen another video on YouTube that's damn near impossible to smother someone with a pillow too. Apparently other really good for sleeping on.

    The folks in the comments below are correct when they suggest the true purpose of the pillow is containment. It's just a splatter shield. Of course natural filler such as down may decorate the shooter in fuzzy white feathers…so choose wisely.
