I pitched the ball out to ten yards and took a bit more time lining up my shots. It was a bit more challenging. Tennis balls are extremely resilient; you can shoot one hundreds of time with a round nose lead bullet before is falls apart.
While I am definitely a fan of suppressed .22 rifles and pistols for pest control and quiet work, the fact remains that they aren’t cheap and some administrators still won’t approve them. A solid bolt-action .22 rifle and a couple of boxes of CCI Quiet-22 ammunition should be had for less than $200. If you buy a second hand gun it costs even less. The new Quiet-22 ammunition might not solve all your pest control problems, but it should reduce the citizen complaints and do the job if you put your shots in the right place.
