    And why or why not?

    Talking to a friend who doesn't think it's worth it.

    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.
     
  4. I vote yes. It's a fun caliber to shoot, and if you suppress subsonic .22 it's so quiet.

    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.

    .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 :bowdown: 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 :eek3: 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.

    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)

    Has anyone in this thread ever fired subsonic .22 out of a moderately long barrel? It sounds like nothing as it is.
     
  23. 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?
