Gunsmith Cats Used straight in the anime, as a rare exception to otherwise showing their work with recordings of the exact weapons shown. Rather excusable, as the gun in question was the extremely rare Welrodnot something the range they used could have rented them.
And the Welrod is one of quietest firearms ever made. Subverted in Gunsmith Cats: Burst when Misty customizes a Python revolver to accept a suppressor, only to be chewed out by Rally because, with the weapon being a revolver, the suppressor has no effect.
Averted in Noirwhich took actual audio from the guns used and doesn't completely diminish the sound when a silencer is fitted.

Played completely straight when a silencer and a scarf covering the muzzle flash lets Pisco fire a gun in a crowded room to bring down a chandelier on his victim without drawing any attention to himself.
In one case, the murderer covered up the sound of gunfire by firing the silenced gun at the same time as party poppers were being set off for a party. Considering someone a floor away from the party but literally an arm's length away from the gun completely failed to notice it, it would still have to be pretty damn quiet.
Averted in Highschool of the Dead. Hirano hands Saya an MP5, warning her that even with a suppressor, any shots will still be audible enough to be heard by them. In Black Lagoon during a flashback to Revy's childhood she's shown killing a man eventually revealed to be her own father using a pillow to suppress the sound.

Film Averted by The Bourne Identity where the Treadstone operative that kills Conklin uses a silenced pistol that sounds rather accurate. Although this is all the more confusing due to the fact that all the other silenced pistols in the movie had used the traditional Coconut sound effect.

The Way of the SamuraiGhost Dog has a plethora of silenced guns which fire with the traditional fwip.
The suppressed rifles and silenced pistols make a fairly loud bang, but the main character's unsilenced pistol makes a really loud bang. When tested, it explodes, amplifying the sound considerably and partially deafening Downey Jr.
The sniper in the movie Shooter uses a bottle as a makeshift silencer for his rifle. Also, the rifle in question is firing. It's still a Hollywood Silencer, because the sound would be muffled, but not complete silenced, and especially if the bottle was filled with something to aid in suppressing it, that would affect its range as well.
The otherwise brilliant movie The Sting features the silenced revolver mistake. The Boondock Saints have silencers that make a small "fwip" sound, though they are mainly used to keep others from discovering their activities, not for the element of surprise.
The barkeeper in Desperado has a silencer on his revolver that is obviously not even compatible with the weapon. Subverted in that it doesn't actually work.
