Note the sound compensator on the 222 Rem.  This device does not dampen the crack of the bullet's shock wave (since it travels at supersonic speed) but it allows the muzzle gas to escape more gradually, causing the bang at the source to be much less audible.  Not only is this practice less disturbing to nervous live stock and neighbors, but it comes in handy when taking jackal in pairs, since they can't tell where the bullets come from. 

Note also lamp switch under left thumb, quick-fitted with Velcro on the rifle stock.  The lamp slides into a bracket that is permanently bolted to the 3-9x40 scope.  It takes less than 2 seconds from switching the light on until pulling off the shot, since by this time you already know roughly where the target is.
