There are a few(hundred) dogs running around here as I live out in the country. Some get in the garbage, some just run around the yard at night and bark at you. Now, I would never shoot a dog unless it was aggressive to me or my family or trying to hurt my livestock/chickens. But I do occasionally fire a few rounds into the ground if I catch them doing something they don't need to be doing. Normally, I use my G19 to shoo them off. Well, just a few minutes ago, the neighbors dog was asleep under the porch and my wife walked outside and startled it, so naturally it started barking at her. This time, I grabbed the G22. With my G19 my ears are ringing after a couple of shots, but I just noticed that with the G22, I can't even tell I fired a round off. I know I should always use ear pro but I don't always have time. Has anyone else noticed that their 9mm is louder?
