    Awesome. I now have even more respect for my 10/22. I just re-finished it too, it's looking good.

    On another note, are those supressors civilian-legal?

    They are legal

    sort of. They must be registered with the ATF and the tax paid. It will definately cost you more than the 10/22 did, but what alot of fun.

    Hmmmmm. Mouseguns ARE lethal. Whoda thunk.

    Wonder what sort of testing was involved? Volunteers?

    Oh, yeah. That little 40 grainer will enter a cranial or thoracic cavity, but won't exit. Of course it will bounce around a little before it stops. :D

    Jeff Cooper recommended a scoped suppressed .22 rifle for stopping riots (shoot the lead rioter in the chest once, it'll certainly get his attention and stop him from leading). Although he said you'd need a very good shot to do it.

    If you get an internally supressed Ruger XX/22barrel it can be put in any Ruger 22, a 77/22 or 10/22 and I think a 96/22 the lever action.

    Hmm. I had never thought of that. If one desires to purchase a suppressor and pay the $200 tax, this seems to be about the best option.

    Then you could have a bolt action, semi-auto, as well as a lever action and only pay the transfer tax once. :)

    Or just get a removeable can... :D
