I think I'd use the 10/22 or the 22/45. Makes no sense using high priced ammo on worthless zombies.

I think a G19 is probably the most utilitarian sidearm one could own.

A suppressor can be very effective on .22 LR. as in the loudest thing you hear is the sound action clacking back and forth. You need to use subsonic ammo to get that level of suppression. For a 5.7 suppressor to really be useful would require subsonic ammo in which case why not just a .22 LR?

My 9mm suppressor makes my Glock hearing safe (I don't need to wear hearing protection to shoot it), but it most definitely is not Hollywood quiet. It sounds about like somebody slamming a door hard.

The quietest thing of all is an integrally suppressed .22 LR rifle. You can get integral suppressed barrels for Ruger 10/22 rifles that include bleed-off holes to keep normal ammo subsonic. These look just like a normal bull barrel on your rifle (no longer than normal). Several vendors make them.

I bought a G17 specifically as a suppressor host.

It make look a bit silly but my G26 works great with the suppressor also.

My G22, but I'm not sure if I would take 9mm or stick with the .40; I have barrels for both calibers, the 9mm is a KKM drop-in barrel. I'd probably go 9mm.

EDIT: I forgot to add my 4" Ruger GP100 in a crossdraw holster, and for back up, probably a tactical tomahawk from CRKT or something.

My long arm would be my Romanian AK-47 and 6 mags, one of them a Bulgarian 40-rounder.

Oh yeah....and IBTL!

My Glock 26. It's my favorite out of all my Glocks. It's also what I shoot best.

That's a joke, right?
Please don't tell me you really have a knife mounted on your CZ.
That is soooooooo lame.

True. Around here it's about the same as 9mm.

Most of our smaller shops don't even stock it and bigger shops tend to only have a few bricks on hand for varminters.

Show me store bought hollow point 50 round boxes for 8-9$ a box and I'll be more inclined to agree with you.

Even if you find sale prices close to these 22mag prices you can carry almost three to one in ammo and only have power a step behind the 9mm. All with less recoil and generally better accuracy from the 22Mag

These are excellent points!

I Immeadiately chose a handgun but a short barreled suppressed 10/22 might just be a better primary backed up with the pistol. Big mags available, even better accuracy that's easier yo teach accuracy to inexperienced. Carry even more and cheaper ammo all while being even more readily available.

My 22m choice would not suppress so well. Maybe with those Dyna points. It that they are plated if ok for the suppressor.
