South Korea Army issues rifle suppressor for training

    Because of noise complaints from their civilian neighbors, the South Korean army has begun issuing 5.56mm rifle suppressors. A Korean reader told me that unlike during the military rule which ended in the 80s, the ROK army is very concerned about public relations and they have had problems utilizing land for training because of noise pollution.
