    Just a short clip of my friends Martini Henry .22 calibre/caliber rifle. This is firing high velocity ammo, not subsonic. Full length internal sound moderator.
    It's the last part of the video..4.14 (time). I will try to get some more video/pics of this gun at the next shoot.

    That's quiet... I like it! :)

    I'd really like to have a Walther P22 with a suppressor but it would be close to $850 by the time I paid the BATFE tax. :( That's just not worth it...

    With sub-sonic ammo, all you hear is the firing pin striking........spooky.

    I bought some Aguila Colibri ammo. It's 20 grains and fires only off of the primer. It only goes 375 FPS, so it's really just a novelty. With it you only hear the hammer as well. If your buddy's gun is that quiet with subsonic ammo that's just cool! :D
