You use a silencer with regular bullets and you still get a lot of noise, the supersonic bullet makes a nice bang as it flies through the air, it's just some of the bang from the gun that gets quieter.
Thanks for reading, wait you didn't.
There isn't much readily available subsonic ammo, the most common being the .22
Again, don't say "silencer" it makes you look uneducated. Suppressor is preferred despite what is used in games etc.
If you want that iconic 1911 that sounds like a laser gun, get a .22 rimfire conversion kit for it and bang- you have sexy laser sounds. (YES the .22 is pretty close to that sound when suppressed... I can speak from first hand experience)
