i doubt adding holes is going to do anything...
but I did find these pics in an online search... loudened point man in vietnam (to scare potential ambushers)
adding holes will just let sound escape in other directions, and you want it to be loud for the person your shooting it at right? not the shooter or the guy next to the shooter. It's already redirecting and amplifying your shot. Other than shorter barrel what can be done?

I wonder if a parabolic shaped loudener with the barrel tip at the focus point wouldn't work, at least to make the sound louder for your target.
Kind of the opposite of the blunderbuss/trumpet type loudener Drum posted.

The report is only going to get so loud. You can however change the pitch and what not. The loudest combo I could get was a short (4") barrel with a 3"L x 2"W loudener. The shorter the barrel the "louder" the sound. The larger diameter seemed to have a more hollow sounding crack to it...which reallly hurt my ears compared to the smaller/shorter ones I had made.
It got alot louder the shorter I cut the barrel though.
Something similiar to the barrel I made for my BZ pistol on Vector would be extremely obnoxious.
Someone around here (drum?) accidentally dry fired a loudened Vector directly into his ear.
