We all know that flash hiders make the shooter invisible so, if a surpressor makes the shooter invisible, it could be considered a flash hider.
While I think I follow your logic about integral surpressors, how would you clssify a permanently attached flash hider? Would it be just part of the barrel and no longer considered a "flash hider" or, would it be a barrel with an integral flash hider?
