    For me, it has to be my Bushmaster AR with an AK-style compensator up front. M193 touched off indoors with that thing is quite the kaboom. My roommate in college had a Mosin M44, however, which was definitely louder.

    By far, my Mosin-Nagant M44. I have heard few things short of a .50BMG that are louder at the range.

    Next one behind that would be either my PTR-91 with flash hider, or my 18" Remington 870 Express Magnum Security model, when using 3" magnum loads. The shotgun, when firing mag loads, has a muzzle flash about the diameter of a basketball. REALLY cool when shooting at dusk.

    For me I think it is my AK-47 Pistol. I can feel the blast wave when shooting that thing.

    M44 Carbine or Ruger .30 Carbine revolver. I think the Ruger wins...

    I think my M1a bush rifle with the muzzle brake may be louder than my .300 mag.

    Also a Ruger .30 Carbine revolver. People at the range look at me funny when I shoot it. :D

    I know it's strange, but nothing I've ever shot is louder than an excam 22lr sa revolver I used to own. Not much in the way of concussion, but man it was a pop!:what:

    7mm Rem out a 24 inch barrel.

    Some people claim 3" Mag shotshells are louder but I dont buy it. The crack of a rifle hurts my ears more than the boom of a shotgun.

    My Mosin 91/30 is a boomer.
    Romanian TTC is definitely an attention getter, one guy at the range thought I was shooting .44mag!
    While not comparatively loud, my Baby Browning is a rambunctious little sucker, I call it the "Noisy Cricket", kicks pretty good for a tiny gun too.

    6" .357 model 66.

    I made the mistake of shooting a deer out of a wooden ground blind with it w/o hearing protection. That was 2 years ago and I still have constant ringing, and significant hearing loss from that one incident. *please wear hearing protection, it doesn't make you less manly*

    .358 Norma Mag pushing a Speer 250 gr bullet at 2750 fps.

    Every time I take it to the range, people ask me, "WTH is that thing"?
