    I have a RWS 48B that does 1100fps which is faster than the speed of sound.

    Fucker cracks a good bang. Loud enough to have my neighbors call the cops.

    I live in Cali. so I like to know if the gun laws on silencers for pellet guns are the same as those for regular guns.

    Is there a law against shooting a pellet gun in your backyard?

    true that.
    since like 7 I grew up with a pellet and bb gun.

    I remember my friends and I playing BB gun wars, we would wear eye protection and only pump the guns once and run around shooting each other.

    Some hippies at college use to be "that sounds dangerious, why not like laser tag?"
    Because laser tag you don't hear the little bitch who left his leg exposed go "AAACCKKKK F*@#*#*%*#*)(* AS*(&#%*&#HOLE (*&#*(#SUCKING!"

    Sorry to go off topic.

    If the pellet is supersonic, a suppressor won't change the sound, since the noise you're hearing is the projectile breaking the sound barrier and hense the crack. Suppressors for regular guns only quiet down the noise of the bullet being fired, but dont make the gun silent, especially if its a supersonic bullet. And No suppressed gun sounds like they do in the movies........ Oddly enough, they sound like a BB gun (if subsonics are used)

    most local ordinances list air rifles/pistols as firearms when it comes to firing them in city limits. Even here in Nevada it's a felony to shoot an air rifle in city limits and you will be treated just as if you shot off a shotgun in your backyard.

    Just remember to check the laws. It would really suck having a felony like this on your record as a teen only to see it pop up later and cause a denial when you go to buy guns down the road.

    sell it and buy one that goes 1,000 fps. won't notice a difference and it won't break the sound barrier.
