when I was on the run, making cans for a living

I had a .22 can on which my gas welding was imperfect. The can is a pressure-vessel for an instant. The hot, pressurized gases will find any means of venting to the outside. So any crack or pinhole in the weld joint between the rear adapter plug and the can's tube, will render the can quite loud.

I showed a guy this, in small room and he said "it's just as loud as without the silencer". I said, "you think so?" :-) the only .22 I had for testing was an old pos autorifle, which I'd cut back to 3" of barrel for handiness. stock was broken, feed spring missing, etc. I removed the can and fired one .22 rd. He yelled, grabbed his ears, bent over. :-) room was about 8 x10, in a garage in S Cal. his only experience with .22lr had been with a RIFLE, outdoors. I ran the torch around the weld and the can was then BB gun quiet.

I had experienced this before. testfiring 50 Jennings .22 pistols, each with its own silencer, to be traded for coke in Belize, in Spld, ill, 1984, I was in an attic, big old 3 story house. 3 of the damned things had pinholes in the welds. I was firing down into a box of gravel. MAN, what a potential for cops being called! but none were.

GK is a relic, a very curious one at that.
