    Justifying the tax stamp on the suppressor for an AR15-22?

    I know you said they're in the yard. If they set up house inside, spread Bounce fabric softener sheets around. Works for a few weeks then you have to replace them.

    Nope, not inside. Besides ruining my lawn, I want them gone for fear that they will eventually move inside.

    I can verify that... I was more than just a little surprised. About all we heard was the spring loaded firing pin strike on a bolt action .22

    I was also pretty impressed shooting suppressed MP-5 with sub sonic 9mm rounds during my tactical medic class. Compliments of the FBI in KC who brought 3 MP-5's and case of sub sonic ammo for the course.

    I'm in the same situation Sixto....my mice problem seems to come and go about every 3 to 4 months
    It got so bad that I had to wage war last summer:
    -poison blocks in the attic, behind storage shelves in the garage, and under shed in backyard
    -glue pads in the house behind or under all the furniture/appliances
    -set snap traps with peanut butter at desired locations
    -set snap traps with cheese at desired locations (different tastes in food LOL)
    -bought one of the sonic wave thingamajigs that is supposed to run 'em off

    I can't say the sonic thingamajig was worth it since it came in near the end of the war I guess, I had 19 enemy combatants confirmed dead the first week, 2 the 2nd week and the problem went away.
    Now that the weather is warming up, I'm expecting the insurgents to begin striking again. We'll see how well the sonic thing repels.

    Aguila Super Colibri out of a rifle it sounds like someone dropped a pebble. It won't have enough power to take down anything bigger then a squirrel but it is just another option for pest control.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    I gave one of my 10/22's a little work out last week, I haven't seen another mouse since... but the weather has been bad and I've been working a lot.

    Moles are also another sign of grubs.

    As a kid I hid in the garge, put out cheese and peanut butter and waited with a scoped air rifle using darts. whacked many a rat that way. My Mom stopped asking me to get rid of rats after I chased one down his hole (which I had blocked all his exits) poured some gasoline down and sprayed some hairspray for good measure. the resulting "wump" and 10' of flame was very satisfying. My Mom ran out on hear the noise to see smoke raising from her garden and me smiling and saying "I got rid of that rat for you" Sadly most of her plants died a few days later.
