    Thanks. I don't know why a .22 with a silencer sounds so appealing, really, just sounds like fun. Then I can shoot at my parent's house without the neighbors whining :lol3

    Just out of curiosity, will your parents be in their house when you shoot at it? If so, why would you want to shoot at your parents? :D

    Then buy a P22 as it is the cheapest way to get inot a suppressed 22. Oh, and BTW, it is suppressed, not silenced...a supressor only supresses the sound, there isn't a such thing as a silencer, that is a term coined by hollywood back in the day since they know nothing about firearms...-:rofl

    A compensator usually is refered to as such because it compensates for somtething, usually muzzle rise. A muzzle brake is to allow gasses to escape for recoil usually. A bore evacuator is entirely different and usually found in the middle of the barrel on very large artillery peices.

    Um...shooting on their property I mean, away from the house!

    They live on 12 acres in the mountains, there are a few houses around but their property borders a 450 acre retreat/open space ranch. We were shooting muskrats in the pond, with a very large wooded hill as a backdrop. No houses up there. Also, the hill is their property, and the ranch was not an open space at the time, but a private YMCA ranch.

    So, the neighbor yells at us to stop shooting. We're shooting a Marling bolt-action .22 rifle with CB SHORTS! He says he will call the sheriff if we don't stop. So, my brother and I call the cops first, stating what we're doing, and that the neighbor may call in.

    The sheriff says as long as we're being safe, not shooting over people or houses, the neighbor can kiss it! :lol3

    Thanks Sniper! I will keep looking. The P22 is nice, but costs quite a bit more than the Mark III Rugers.

    I just picked up a Beretta Tomcat .32. I recently renewed my CCW permit and the Instructor had one he showed me. I love the compactness of it.
    I also added the Crimson Trace grips.

    Treu, but a supressor for it costs less and is very effective. You can get into a P22 with supressor for about $900.00 after all the tax stamp, payola to the local LEO, FBI check, and costs of the gun and supressor are covered.

    Make sure you put that red dot on the center of someones neck to be able to put them down with a .32.....if you ever have to. And don't eve try to shoot thru a thick leather jacket and put a guy down especially if he is on drugs.

    I talked to the shop where I placed the order, Glock magazines aren't expected in for at least another two months, even longer for the Kel-Tec since there's a bunch of orders in front of me.

    So I cancelled the order, and 1/2 an hour later I bought the Kel-Tec and magazines off of gunbroker.:clap



    I now have everything I've wanted off my the basic need-this-gun list, now I'm moving on to the dream list, starting with suppressed .22lr.:deal

    I hear the ATF wait for suppressor tax stamps is running 2-3 months.:cry










    AmmoWatch2009 update: The shortage is getting worse, not better, prices keep rising.

    Northern Utah: Shotgun shells in hunting sizes are now plentiful, along with high end rifle hunting ammo, but everything else is scarce, particularly bulk and self-defense rounds in any caliber.

    Well....I am going for strictly ocular shots. If they have to close their eye because there is a red beam in it........ I shoot. It's a soft entry.

    Recently bought this Ruger Mk III target model as well and really enjoy shooting it.

    Think I paid $230 out the door for it new. Put a set of grips and an ultra dot on it. It is becoming one of my favorite guns.

    I just installed a Crimson Trace Grip on my Glock 27 and another on my Mom's Glock 26. Pretty nifty little devices these CTC's are.
