Yea, maybe you don't get it.
When an object rips through the air like a bullet, it carries with it the wave pattern that it came from, because the sound wave of the explosion
inside the gun is slower than the sound wave of the bullet. The displacement of the air from the bullet is like a huge sheer of the sound wave itself
from the gun. Different atmospheric density affects the carry speed of the sound, and especially when the thing doing the displacement is going the
speed of a bullet.
This is why, for example in my own life, while walking up a steep hill and hearing a shot from an unknown weapon above, I heard the explosion from the
gun in the wake of the bullet cutting through tree leaves before I heard the explosion of the gun from its actual source.
First came the woosh of leaves snapping, the light hint of an explosion in its wake (the displaced soundwave from the bullet's origin), then the
actual explosion from the chamber. This creates a double "pa PA" sort of sound.
I don't honestly care what you think of my sign out. it does not make me right or wrong, and calling attention to it is merely you unable to counter
what I say.
Thus, either go to the place and see for yourself, or Toodles.
