I have dabbled with airguns, mostly cause here in US you can use non taxed silencers on them as they are not firearms,...its always fun to legally thumb one's nose at the gov't once and a while. One rifle has it built in and is pretty quiet. Many think "oh its an airgun..there's no noise" well if you shooting in your garage at 1100fps+, its pretty damn loud...in fact you need hearing protection. I've got an RWS/Diana 350 Magnum (fancy name, eh?) that is VERY zippy and one hole accurate at 10m. Have just enough room in the garage for that. Have a BUNCH of black powder stuff too but never seem to find the time to dig in and play around with those dirty old beasts.
