A silenced airgun isn't an oxymoron at all; you can purchase or make your own silencers for paintball guns (they can be surprisingly loud). Could that be another possible application for paintball guns, though? What if the .68 calliber balls were filled with a skin-contact sedative? Or even an airborne irritant like mace? Could be a very effective non-lethal weapon with relatively pin-point accuracy (certainly moreso than lobbing a grenade cannister into a crowd). It could be useful in hostage situations, etc.
