Are you shooting alloy pellets ? That is the only way a model 34 gets super sonic . They aren't good for the gun and will eventually damage it. Like shooting too light of an arrow from a compound bow
You are comparing an smoothbore Airgun driving a 5.1 grain steel bb less than 350 fps to a rifled airgun driving an 8 grain pellet above 900 fps I think if you have someone else shoot booth of them while you stand a few feet away you'll find there isn't as much difference between the sounds as you think
Lead pellets from Gamo, RWS, and a few others

From a long barrel 22 LR I have found this combination to be nearly as silent as many shorter barrel 22LR shooting suppressed sub-sonic ammo. There is still plenty of energy here to kill squirrels at modest distances. In my experience from a 27.5 inch Winchester Model 67 it will shoot through a pine 2x4 through the 1.75 thickness and I can distinctly hear the firing pin strike the cartridge over the muzzle report. Significantly quieter than my Gamo break barrel .177 pellet rifle.
The 3-9X scope that came with mine won't hold a zero though so plan for the expense of a better optic if you need a scope.
Yeah, they probably don’t have any problem with writing speeding tickets though. That and nailing you for an offense that locally might be the same as discharging an actual firearm would both be safer than going after “real” criminals. Quotes used for you, as far as the law is concerned the difference won’t mean anything until the sentencing phase, if then.
Hiring the pest control business in your area now would still be cheaper than the cheapest lawyer later.
Yeah, I don't know why they include such a garbage scope. Seems like a decent set of irons would be a cheaper, and better, investment/selling point. I put a 4X UTG scope on mine and have been impressed. I can (fairly) consistently hit a kickball in our pond that is stuck under some overhanging brush @ 130 yards out...
