Re: Starter pistol loudness?

For the most part the 209 is louder than a 20g or 12g pointed away from you and the dog. The 209 is only surpassed in loudness by the 32 blank. You don't want to muzzle blast over or close to dog in training till they have had lots of gunfire with birds killed for them. You know how much the muzzle ...
