Arrow .22

Long rifle cartridge dimensions in inches..
The .22 LR has also seen limited usage by police and military snipers.. Its main advantage in this role is its low noise, but it is usually limited to urban operations because of its short range..The Israeli military used a suppressed .22 LR rifle for riot control and to "eliminate disturbing dogs prior to operations", though it is now used less often as it has been shown to be more lethal than previously suspected.. Some other examples include the use of suppressed High Standard HDM pistols by the American OSS, which was the predecessor organization of the CIA.. Francis Gary Powers was issued a suppressed High Standard for the flight in which he was shot down.. Suppressed Ruger MK II pistols were used by the US Navy SEALs in the 90's..Note: actual velocities are dependent on many factors, such as barrel length of a given firearm and manufacturer of a given batch of ammunition..See also 5 mm caliber.. of the things you love might not seem so special anymore.. Like your Jack-in-a-Box.. Maybe you'll realize it's just a piece of tin and a stuffed animal.. And the older you get, the fewer things you really love.. And by the time you get to my age, maybe it's only one or two things..You the guy in the flaming car, Sergeant James?..
