7. Don't argue with her - she's seen some of those Bruce Willis/Clint Eastwood movies
You can't fool her. She knows how "silencers" make any gun just go "phfft" and people start dropping like flies.

She obviously doesn't know that they are required in many European countries as a safety device at indoor and some outdoor ranges and are sold over the counter with no government permission required.
