Neomorphy I love that joke! I've heard of a similar variation of that joke below and cracks me up every time. I've never seen my father cry my whole life until I told him this joke.

An old lady goes to the doctor and says, "I have this problem with frequent gas. Fortunately, the farts never smell and are always silent. As a matter of fact, I've farted at least 10 times since I've been here, and I bet you didn't even notice!" The doctor says, "I see. Take these pills and come back next week." The next week the old lady returns. "Doctor," she says, "I don't know what the hell you gave me, but now my silent farts stink like the dickens." The doctor says, "Good! Now that we've cleared up your sinuses, let's work on your hearing."

dFresh, have you chronied your shots? Only way I can see it being louder than a suppressed AR15 is if you're using a light lead free pellet and breaking the sound barrier. The Ronin only comes in .25 and .30 so the bore hole should be fine. Even with clipping, it shouldn't be loud. Because the Impact allows so many variables to be adjusted (regulator, hammer spring tension HST) we would need more info on your settings to help solve the issue. Many people shoot the Impact with JSB 25.4 gr at full power and it is backyard friendly. As Michael mentioned though, if you set your Impact up correctly and maximize air efficiency your gun should not be loud at all.
