[show]Starting in the 2nd season the team starts using sub-machine guns and assault rifles during raids, specifically Hechler and Kock MPs and Colt M-4 assault rifles. Many times they attach sound suppressors but when they fire the weapon a gunshot is heard. This is not a goof or inaccuracy, there is no such thing as a silencer, as suppressors are commonly misconceived, and even the best suppressor can only muffle a gunshot to roughly 35-50 decibels which is about the sound level of a shout or hard loud clap. The show doesn't quite get the sound level exactly accurate but the effort is there. In order to make a show with this much action and violence 100 percent authentic would mean discounting a large number of "Hollywood Facts" or things the entertainment industry has done throughout time to tell stories in a more dramatic fashion which have now become common misconceptions in regards to weapons, police and military tactics, guns and gun violence. For instance when a firearm is discharged at a car for example there is no huge spark exploding off the vehicle. Car doors are made of materials that can easily be pierced all the way through to the other side and out the opposite with no more than a 9mm hand gun so an assault rifle or machine gun would not only penetrate the interior of the vehicle but exit and continue traveling possibly endangering civilians on the other side. (See 13 Hours directed by Michael Bay for the most realistic depiction of gun violence and war/combat violence I have seen in a motion picture or television show non-documentary ie (mild spoiler) a scene in which the contractors are taking cover by a stone or brick wall and a four door sedan. A 50 caliber machine gun fires at 3 men in the open area and tears their bodies apart due to the force and size of the 50 cal bullet and the reverse when a second machine gun fires on the contractors and 30-50 rounds hit the car causing the door to be shredded and pushed inwards into the car subsequently making the car nearly collapse in on itself.
