    You DO suck!!!

    ...got me all interested now.

    Well here come some more q's....

    1. Are we talking slide racking, air gun, or unsuppressed .22lr in regard to noise level?

    2. Can they all be taken apart for cleaning by the user?

    3. Is there anyone online that is known to be the cheapest for them?

    Thanks

    Unsurpressed .22 LR is approx 160 db...

    9mm Osprey approx 125 db dry with 147 gr JHP

    Outback II approx 121 dry

    So... the Osprey is a little over twice as loud as your really quiet Outback II..

    ..but if the Osprey was wet...probably very close to same spl as the Outback II.

    Both the Osprey & Ti-Rant SPL are impressive wet or dry...IMO

    To answer your question...

    Dry... similar to an air powered nailgun...IMO

    Wet... similar to slide racking..



    IIRC, The piston can be removed from the Osprey to assist with cleaning..

    ..but a centerfire can fed copper jacketed JHP & FMJ simply does not cake up with lead/lube residue..

    ..& need frequent cleaning like a rimfire can does.

    If it ever does needs cleaning, just send it back to Silencerco!



    Major Malfunction would be my 1st choice...if I were you!

    Made some upgrades to my vehicle preps (made a thread about it).

    Rotated the gas in two of my Scepter MFCs.

    Prepaid my upcoming Arkansas CHL Class.

    Met several new like-minded friends in North Arkansas!

    Assisted a former coworker in getting his uncle prepared.

    Paid the tax stamps on my Silencerco 40Osprey & SS Sparrow....told to expect a 6 month wait! :sad:

    After deliberation, ordered the now discontinued AAC 762-SD before they are no longer available! :banana:

    Considering an Beretta 21A in Inox with threaded barrel & Genesis Micro suppressor...also with a Crimson Trace Lasergrip.

    It would be an close companion to the Beretta 21A with threaded barrel, AWC Titan II (or III?) & Crimson Trace Lasergrip shown here..

    Whatever you do make sure you keep it a secret. I attended a DHS class in 09 and the topic was emergency supply procurement. It involves local LEO’s and other emergency responders locating private stock piles of “supplies”for "re-distribution".

    I have no preparations. None. Nada. Zip. Not a bit.


    No guns either. Nothing but sticks and rocks. I just hang out in this forum, because I'm lonely. And everybody here is friendly.

    What was the name of the class? I've taken tons of them and never heard of such a thing.

    I have never attempted to hide my identity online because it is impossible to hide from a pro, especially if he has server access. However I include that in my plans and I can tell you that nobody will benifit from my resources without my consent and I think that we all should, if it be poison pill or multiple locations or whatever you can think of.

    As a pro with government resources, yes I can hunt people down, but I tell everyone to have an internet alias. It limits your exposure to the crazies.

    Yes, I do have story. No I will not tell it.

    I have been walking more. I walked 3 miles in my work (dress cloths) one day this week. After three miles, my feet hurt and I had a very sore wear spot on my balls. I will be working on the shoes, but I have no idea what to do about the wear spot on my balls.

    The other item I have been working on is money... I opened a Roth IRA account at TD Ameritrade. It looks like I can put 5K in for 2011 until April 15th 2012.

    I walked Sea World for 8 hours today and the body never gave me a bit of trouble. I was very pleased... hours of practice paid off!

    No, just a longer harder walk than normal.
