    Are Perazzi

    I have noticed this but never questioned it.. Today at the range 5 kids were on the line, 3 shooting XT's one 1100 and one P-gun.. it sounded like ka-boom.ka-boom.ka-boom. ka-boom. bang... the bang being the Perazzi.. when the shooting was over one of the coaches came up to me and asked how much shot I loaded..I told him 7/8.. he then said some of my shells were off sounding and none of them had much "kick" to them... I told him my kid was shooting the same shells as everyone else.. federal 1 1/8 that we buy through the sctp... he just kinda looked at me and said I thought she was shooting reloads.. I know it doesnt make sense but her gun is quieter than the others.. only 2 of them were ported..

    Barrel length maybe? Auto guns louder?

    I've always thought the Auto shotguns were louder because of the bolt cycling. I've also noticed this with my .22 rifles. My Ruger 10/22 semi-auto is louder than my Marlin 39A. I think you get some more noise from it escaping during the bolt cycling. I could be wrong though.

    I am sure that it may be due to several factors: 1. barrel length, 2. auto vs. break open, 3. Porting, 4. forcing cones, 5. choke tubes, 6. and yes, even the make of the gun. Many DT10's have a distinctive 'ping' when shot. Fred
