Notes: UK English is used in this story. Due to incorrect claims about the .22 short subsonic rounds not being able to work a pistol I’ve changed the weapon to a .25 ACP which is is readily available as a commercial pistol in many countries today and the past. It’s also a subsonic round that’s slower and quieter than the .22 short.
