And for close in shots nothing can beat the home-canned (wet pack method) Jennings .22, right?

THAT is why God invented Idaho bakers... for those .22 rifle shots you want to keep secret along with Aguila 60gr.

u actually BELIEVE that bs? the bullet blows apart the potato, raw or baked, it can do almost nothng to suppress the sound of the shot, dude. the hot gases have to be CONTAINED and cooled off, before being released into the air. if they are not, they will still be VERY loud.

NO, BUT it makes for great lore and campfire talk and every now and then someone will actually try it.
