And why or why not?
Talking to a friend who doesn't think it's worth it.
Is this our Jeremy?
Everyone I've ever heard who plays heavily in the suppressor games says that 22lr is the BEST thing to suppress. Lot's of available hosts, lots of available subsonic ammo, and a suppressed 22 is about as quiet as it gets.
I vote yes. It's a fun caliber to shoot, and if you suppress subsonic .22 it's so quiet.
yes and no, not the one youre thinking of
I would assume it will sound like a pellet gun. plus it's a lot cheaper to shoot and suppress than anything else
This pretty much sums it up.
I'm toying with the idea of getting a can after I get around to buying a 22 upper for my AR.
Any bets on who the first vote for no is gonna be?
I want to be able to target practice in my back yard.
Hoss. He has CA jealousy.
.22 is the best to suppress. It's cheap to shoot, TONS of different hosts, and it's as quiet as they come. .223/556 cans are fun and will get you operator points but they are still loud and not hearing safe.
My dad has a suppressed 10/22, it's so much fun to shoot and so damn quiet He has a creek about about 75 yards behind his house, and neighbors live about 50 yards on either side of him. He took down a beaver on the bank of the creek when the neighbors were outside doing yardwork without them even looking up The bullet hitting the target is typically louder than the shot itself. I don't have any experience with larger caliber suppressed guns, but I think I'd prefer a 10/22 like his to plink with than anything bigger/louder.
Yes because I can shoot it in my backyard.
I could shoot one of the neighbors cats who he lets roam freely and gets in fights with coons (not the ones you guys are going to assume, the animal)
Don't point that shit at me I voted yes.
Actually, I thought MG was talking about Phrozen
Silly of me to think I'm the only Jeremy. Lulz
Has anyone in this thread ever fired subsonic .22 out of a moderately long barrel? It sounds like nothing as it is.
I have, and I can tell you that suppressed .22 is still way quieter.
I'm sure it is, I'm just saying, spend the money on something else. You should be able to drop zombies without anyone noticing as it is.
if you bought a can for lets say a 10/22, but had a 22/45 with a threaded barrel would it be "lawful" to use the same suppressor for both guns with only one tax stamp?
