Is there a silencer for the guns. Shoot your replies please. I am dying to know. I have a .22 BSA Rifle & a 12 Bore Single barrel breach loading gun. The 12 Bore makes helluva noise. I dont want the other Boars to be scared by the first shot.:cool:

Not exactly electronics but........

a .22 can definately be silenced. A Good Bolt action, with a silencer and Subsonic ammo is very quiet indeed.
I have one for my Mauser, and it works very well, but the one I tried on my 10-22 ruger wasn't so effective. I found the noise from the semi-auto mech to be quite loud in itself, and I know that some semi's dont like using Sub-sonic ammo either.... not enough punch to re-cock the mech.
As for the 12 gauge, I have heard of them being silenced, but I have no experiance with that and no idea how effective it would be.
Good luck with Porky... (th th th th thats all folks)

Silencers on most bigger bore guns will not actually totally silence the shot, but reduce the noise.

From wikipedia:
"Motion pictures have produced the common misconception that sound suppressors ("silencers") completely silence the weapon's sound, or reduce it to a quiet whistling sound, which is in most cases very far from the truth."

Use a larger bore shotgun and drop more oinkers with one discharge. 37mm with canister should do it. The wildlife agent may get a bit bent, though...

How about a crossbow? Slow to reload, but pretty quiet.

Boars can get pretty nasty if ya just wound em. Had a friend who used to go Pig shooting with a crossbow, but he always had a shotgun by his side loaded with a solid slug as a safety measure.

It's only with some types of ammo that you ever get true silence out of them. A .22lr can be silenced if it's subsonic to the point of anemia. The best silenced weapon was on a .45acp carbine specially made during WWII for I think commandos. The Delisle carbine is said to be virtually silent.

The Russians developed a cartridge that is completely silent. It's a strange system having powder, a piston and a bullet. The powder pushes the piston which pushes on the bullet.
