Who needs a centerfire pistol?

Post by greener » Sat May 30, 2015 10:45 am

All you need is a Ruger MKII with a silencer.

I just watched a Sylvester Stallone/Antonio Banderas 1995 movie, The Assassins. They used MKII's with silencers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassins_(film)

First time I'd seen it. I was really impressed with the power a silencer adds to the .22lr. :lol:

I could see why I don't remember seeing this 10-year-old movie, if I ever saw it. My only interest was trying to figure out which Rugers they were using and what they were doing with them.

I watched some of the Clint Eastwood movie "Magnum Force" yesterday. One of the bad motorcycle cops screws a silencer onto a revolver before he takes out a mob boss. It works, too!

Amazes me how the little short silencers in movies work so well, anyway. Just a quick low pitch whistle.

A silencer on a Smith and Wesson would not work so well.... if it was a Nagant, then it would work great. Seeing as they have the whole gas seal thin going.

It worked in the Clint Eastwood movie. So it must be so. :lol:

And if you are Stallone, you can put a silencer on a Ruger MKII and make kill shots through corner walls (two layers of sheetrock) and through the bad guy.

All I know about real guns is what I see in the movies.
