Kiwi, tell us about your suppressor. I bet you can hardly hear that little MK2 go off.
Hey Tom ,the suppressor is a locally made Hushpro brand ,all suppressed .22s have a significantly reduced sound signature and i use the suppressor in a triple role on my 10/22 , a bolt action Voere, and also on my H&R 17HMR ...i have four suppressors with the Hushpro having the biggest diameter it seems the more volume the more suppression....very quiet especially with CCI subsonic or std velocity....great fun to use suppressed firearms on bunnies they know not where its coming from;):)

Hi Kiwi, I'm hanging in there. ;)
YUP, There's something about antler grips alright. :)
I once had a Blackhawk in .45 colt, but I foolishly sold it. It was one of my favorite guns.
As an aside, do you remember those western movies where they used to say; Don't move, I've got the drop on you? Well, a fellow explained to me that this was correct. Back then with those large caliber Black Powder .44/.45's you had to calculate the drop at the distance of your target. :eek:
I remember estimating the drop at roughly one hundred yards once, and coming scary close to hitting the target, and actually hitting it sometimes. It seemed more like lobbing the shots in. It was fun. :D

My son is a dab hand at the art of "lobbing" .22 subsonicS with our 10/22 taking out magpies and rabbits at over a 100yds regularly hes used it with subs that much hes got the "Drop" thing down to a fine art...cheers Bruce KIWI
