    This is why it is as popular as it is.
    A great little small game rd and a great harassment SHTF round.

    I saw that video last week, really makes you think twice about the 10-22 as a bug-out rifle

    Read the OP title and .22LR was the first thing I thought. The CIA uses the .22LR for close-up "wet work"... at least they used to.

    the USAF still has several suppressed hi standards in inventory, I doubt that they are actively used but they are still in inventory.

    Great. More fodder for the .22 hoarders.

    I need to make some videos on how crappy the .22 round is. :cool:

    It is an amazing little cartridge.
    The perfect 2nd for everyone's lineup.

    The array of firearms and testing done on it is amazing also.
    I don't remember the name of it, but there were tests done for the military about 20 yrs ago on a firearm that would fire so fast that the bullets almost stacked on each other coming out and they tested on a rock about the size of a medicine ball and it turned it to powder in seconds.

    Back in the day the HS/HD-Military was a fav, as was the Woodsman but the tech was crude back then, really, really crude, sub Maxium crude.
    So, no props fer WW2 'pressors'
    Today the US suppressor industry (unlike the rest of the world which is 30 years in front of us)'Embraces a brave new world.,less encumbered by Soviet Style Red Tape (Sarc)

    I think back about my granddads Huntsman and Woodsman. A home made can and target shooting in the basement of the house every night.
