A silencer's purpose is to muffle the gunshot to the point where it won't be recognized as a gun firing by anyone who DOES happen to hear it.With a well-silenced 9mm,all you would hear is the pistol's operational noises (i.e. slide,going back and fourth,bullet casing hitting the floor),AND a muffled 'POP',or maybe 'CLACK'.It's hard to describe the noise they make.And in the case of a silencer being 'Loose',as the original author put it,the silencer would most likely bust if the operator fired with the suppressor not fully screwed on,because the barrel wouldn't be in-line with the can,and the bullet would come in contact with the baffles and permenatly damage the silencer.Hope this helped all of you on this suject!

First of all he doesn't use a Walther PPK at the end of the movie he uses a Walther P99 which is a 9mm and has more firing power. Second the silencer is only used to muffle the sound of a gunshot not eliminate it completely. Since the gun is of higher velocity it sounds like a gunshot but its not.
