Is it as quiet as some are claiming?



I wouldn’t call it quiet, it did sound different, like it was a lower frequency report.
I tried to post a vid of me shooting it but the file was too big.

If you got a YouTube account, load it there and just post a link.

Generally speaking, longer barrels and smaller powder charges will produce lower, albeit not hearing safe, levels of noise.  In the case of 9mm and its limited space within case for powder, one will experience a lower report and very little muzzle flash/blast coming from a carbine like the Ruger.

In other words, firing .38+P from my 3” SP101 has a hint of fire and fury (the real thing, not the book).  However, the same .38+P fired from my Ruger 77/357’s 18” barrel is an absolute pleasure, like shooting some type of big .22lr.

I would not worry about the noise level at all.
