the 22 pistol has to be the loudest thing on the planet. Tomorrow I'm helping a buddy around his FIL place in the woods.

He told me today he came across a few rattle bugs int he love making business.

It would be nice to have a pistol with rat shot vs a 20 Ga shotgun tomorrow.

Only i find the 22 pistol one loud hearing reducing firearm.

Not even close.

I would expect, as Judd said, shot will strike the baffles.

You can do it ONCE.

Pistols are loud, if you have a suppressed 22 pistol just shoot regular ammo.

I don't think 22LR rat shot is very loud. Try one without the can and see what you think.

Ratshot out of a 22 is pretty quiet actually, unless your in a small garage.
