Few things in life can match the unbridled joy of a 10/22, a brick of shells, and nothing to do. In fact, there is very little you can do to improve upon that situation. On that short list though, is add a suppressor. And Ruger has now made that easier and better than ever.
Suppressors don’t make every gun more fun. They make pistols heavier and less reliable. They make centerfire guns mostly tolerable, and dirtier. But a 22 rifle? Be serious. It is all the fun of a plinker with none of the noise, and especially in summer, no need for hearing protection. As a former soldier, I have spent more than my fair share of days with sweat pooling in the ear cups of my Peltors.
Or the alternative, an equally sweaty earplug, and shouting “ What?” every other sentence at your shooting partner. As the summer sun comes around, I go out of my way to avoid shooting past the morning hours. Unless I have something like the setup I used today.
