    How loud is a 9mm

    Is it about the same as a .22lr or a bit louder?

    Depends if it's from a rifle or pistol, and subsonic or supersonic.


    Definitely much louder than .22lr though.

    Would the pistols be louder due to a short barrel?

    That fires shot out of a 9mm case?
    Or a shotgun styled rifle?

    Shotgun with a insert that goes in the barrel to take 9mm. might get a .357 one at some stage too. should be good for a laugh.
