suppressed 10/22 .22LR Israeli sniper riflegreenspun.com : LUSENET : MILDOT : One Thread

I think the use of small caliber suppressed weapons against the Palestinians is excellent!
The Pals are regular people who have been talked into terrorism by radicals who were exiled years ago and recently allowed back.
While these radical insurgent trouble makers are heavily armed the average rioting Palestinian is not so heavily armed.They use Rocks and Firebombs(even the children) that are lethal but hardly the level of lethality of assault rifles and tanks.
The Israelis could issue the 10/22 to more and more troopers and allow them to use it more and more.Producing painful wounds but not gauranteed lethality like the assault rifles they currently use now.
I think that the Israelis are handling the Palestinian problem foolishly and should shoot more but kill less and the Ruger 10/22 suppressed would be ideal for that purpose.

Are you for or against the use of the .22LR as a sniper rifle? It says it was used to take out peoples knees, dogs, and it accidentaly killed a few Palestinians.... so now it is barely used as even a non- lethal weapon.
