      My old gf used to have something looked like that in her nightstand but it had a few more attachments.
      I read an article on the TX22, and it's supposed to be a pretty nice pistol. There was a lady shooting one at the gun range the other day but she wouldn't let me try it out. As for the silencer I always just used a pillow over the face, seems to keep things a lot cleaner.

        I suppose for the same reason someone that owns an SUV decides to purchase a Harley.

        Because I wanted it.

          They are truly swamped... combine that with their absolutely archaic manual, paper only system of doing things, and this is what we get. Hell, even Dept of State just rolled out a new website/portal (and I was convinced it would be a total cockup!) for doing all my defense related import/export licensing and it is truly fukkin amazing, easy, fast, responsive, direct payment online... it stunned me. But in my heart, I know that whoever is responsible for that success will be punished for his or her efficiency!

                I'm pretty sure that 857,246 is a low estimate.

                  Not necessary if you put in the tea time, it just isn't, and I do, most don't, especially Americans. We tend to "visit" for 15 minutes, put in minimal effort and candor and true investment in the relationship, then expect miracle results... Applies at the national level too. Funny how that works.

                  But in that vein, facilitating payments, when applied correctly, are not illegal under FCPA.

                    Pro-tip on passports: ALWAYS pay for the expedited... ALWAYS.
                    Super Pro-tip: have "a guy" in DC that can walk it (or visas) through same day... mine is actually an Afghan who's family came to the US when he was a kid to escape during Soviet times. He's married to a smokin hot South African girl who came as an immigrant kid as well.

                      The pillow is an underrated weapon.

                        This one has a end caps that unscrew and allow the baffles to be removed for cleaning. The baffles are cleaned by soaking in a solvent to dissolve the carbon build up.

                        I will take it apart and post some pictures later.
