Don't expect it to shoot any different from any steel ruger MKIII . Just a lighter version thats suppressor ready. If you have not shot a ruger MK II or III 22 pistol then rent any ole 22/45. Even compaired to a older model the mild difference will be in grip proflie. I have a couple rugers . Standard 6" MKIII with a 2lb trigger and a 22/45 for my wife that has a red dot on it.

My current roommate owns a mk 2 which made me look in to gettin one and I'm not worried about price and I shoot by myself out in the country and want to just go with many rounds and no ear muffs figure it's the cheapest route?

From what I've been told .22 is more damaging to your hearing than most calibers.

With a suppressor Idk, I think it would depend on how well it was suppressed.

i run a ruger mk3 threaded model with a silencerco sparrow ss. the bolt slamming forward on a empty chamber is louder than the gunshot

I don't believe the lite is suppressor ready, if I'm not mistaken the front ring is a tension ring to keep the sleeve and barrel locked together. They sure feel nice though...
