Welcome from Southern Pennsylvania. When shooting at the range, yes, it is loud. Be courteous and let others nearby know about the muzzle blast so you don't take them unawares. However, when shooting in self-defense against 2 or 4 legged predators, no. The louder the better.

I have a 2.25" SP-101 in 357 mag., and the muzzle blast is somewhat impressive with full-house loads - especially at night. So you can get an idea of what a full-house 44 mag. will do.
