know why a pistol is better than a woman?

7 posts in this topic

You can spend all kinds of money on a beautiful woman in a dinner date, & still you won't be doing any banging later at night.

Which is a 50/50 chance.

Spend the same amount of money on ammo, you'll be banging a lot more with a smile on your face.

Especially if it is a .22 with a silencer. My preference is a M21 Beretta with my own design of oval, 3.5" of can in front of the 1/2" longer, externaly threaded after market barrel, for a 9" OAL.  14 ozs and will reliably, standing with both hands, no support, hit 2" disks at 50 ft. Given that most critters dont flee when the shot is quiet, that's enough accuracy for a lot of fun. 


Sig has a 1/2" longer threaded barrel for their .22lr conversion on their P938 pocket 9mm, which fits on the Kimber Micro9 just fine. The end result is a gun that's 6.5" long, so the OAL is 10", but it's still just 16 oz. it's easier to arrange than the "canned" M21, (by quite a bit)  and if you dont mind disabling your 9mm, the kit is a bit lighter than the M21. Also, the .22 conversions, of any type, are not considered to be guns. They can be shipped in the mail to anyone. My preference for hikes is to have both the 14 oz canned M21 and the 15 oz Micro9 9mm. The total weight is less than a 4" .38, and no more than a glock 17's empty weight. For most any shot on the trail, the .22 is what you want, but when the .22's not enough, I like to get field experience with my ccw gun and load.


When on the deer stand, it's nice to be able to silence that bluejay thats yelling:" danger here, danger!".  :-) or pop starlings/grackles for entertainment, or take any rabbit/squirrel that comes along, all without running off any deer that's headed my way.

I'll say it onetime, ( ITS NOT A SILENCER ) it's a suppressor.

If you have a can on your firearm, it only suppresses the sound.

The end user of any firearm that uses a can knows, it's not completely silent. LOL.

If your using a can & this is a big if, you can hear a pin drop when using the can, then I would call it silent.

It's not so silent, if you can't hear a pin drop when using your firearm.

    • I've found that selecting a large baker type potato, for "sock use", makes an excellent dog deterrent, or for conking someone that needs an attitude adjustment. You can either bake the evidence and eat it, or, if feeling charitable, give it away to someone who will gladly dispose of the evidence for you. I wielded one many times when I had two paper routes as a young boy, even smacked a hippie once who tried to jack my bicycle. I hit him so hard with a giant Baker that it knocked him down. Not too bad for a 12 year old....

    • Here is my guesstimating, thinking the Rockefellers, Bill Gates, etc are paying for this.They have billion$ of dollar$, a few millions of dollar$ is just a drop in the bucket for them. Not to mention these Alexa devices are eves dropping/ listening in your conversation all the time at your dwelling. Imagin talking to family member/s, friend/s, business partner/s about some idea, then you find out it was stolen from you, right under you noses. Inventions are stolen from people all the time, it’s the registered patten that counts the most, even then you better register the patten in almost every country, if you want to protect your ideas. Even iPhones & ipads are listening devices , someone is listening if not recording every word your saying.  Freedom, what freedom, their is non, we are tied to an invincible rope if you think your not your highly mistaken. IMHO !
    • The thing I like to ask the people who are so enthralled with this tech....So this technology is so very useful, powerful, and can basically run your life for you, it was designed and developed is maintained, expanded and improved constantly....but...the "service" is free and only requires a purchase of under $50 or is simply part of the free phone your cellphone provider handed you. Who paid for this and continues to? How does something like this become a billion dollar industry by charging nothing?
