    I used to shoot an old wrist rocket sling shot. I could kill gray squirrils at 30-40 yards with marbles as ammo

    And I thought I was the only one shooting a slingshot

    Ha! I ate a hoary marmot once and it too was good. Meaty little hinds on that thing!

    Another alternative is to get a little recurve bow and some blunts or judo tips. It's pretty sporty, not to mention effective and silent, to shoot birds and other small game with a bow. I once shot a ground squirrel with my compound bow, and that was pretty impressive. Delicious too, by the way. Tastes like pork. -Gr

    Naw….the CB caps where just real light 22s. Still pretty lethal on rabbits and such....

    Never heard the term "gallery shorts" before but we used to call those super low velocity/noise 22s "CB caps" back in the 70s. I wonder if we are referring to the same thing? Things weren't much louder than a pellet gun going off but hit a bit harder than one.....at least back in them days.

    They are super quiet, enjoyable to shoot and, at close range, deadly for small game.
    I never bought them until the last big ammo scare, and they were all that was left over after the panickers and speculators moved through like locusts. Now I seek these .22 rounds out because they are covert, and my neighbors never even know I am shooting up into the trees (we have had a scourge of magpies this year!).
    The old Remington Sub Sonics work pretty well too.

    +1 for the CCI Quites.
    You need to target practice with them first since they shoot a little lower than your typical rounds.

    Now that it's Monday morning I called ADF&G here in Anchorage to ask them. They said it's perfectly legal to shoot Grouse with a silenced/suppressed .22.

    Be interested in seeing a pic of the rig once you set it up

I got them to hold their fire long enough for us to get into the woods. A few hundred yards in I jumped a bedded bull. Whacked him. Had to get the platoon to hold off on the firing again so we could pack it out.
    Yup....I remember watching a 40" bull with a couple cows while we were sighting in our guns at snowshoe. He didn't seem to mind at all. And yes op, a pellet gun or CB caps for the 22 will do the job....if you're that concerned about noise.
