But loud enough to signal zombies that it's chow time? And it would depend on how close the zombies were. Any suppression of noise would be an advantage.
Ok, please watch this 9 second video of a small pistol being fired with a supressor, the gun in the video is basically similar to the gun Shane carries alongside his shotgun.
Do you still feel comfortable firing in earshot of walkers? The sound is muffled, and in a large open space it will certainly help, but searching for an attachment which basically makes your gun sound like a very slightly smaller gun is probably not a priority.
I can see why someone would think this was a good idea based on movies and TV shows, but the device you commonly see is frankly about as realistic as walkers.
