Yes it is loud. When I first got my rock in, I extracted my pistol from the rock and had them in a little plastic container. This container was sitting on the kitchen counter and the shrimp were way less than a inch long. My wife and I were startled how loud they popped in the container. You could hear them over the TV in the next room.
BTW, we did end up putting them in the tank.

I've got one double barreled pistol....both claws are the same size and huge! He's popped at me a few times while messing around in the tank.

I thought I had a mantis, because I kept hearing popping noises in my tank. I made a DIY mantis trap one night, and in the morning I found 3 pistols shrimps, in the trap. They were all a little less than a 1/2 inch. They didn't make any popping noises when I had them out in a container. I kept them, and I hear them every night, but I never see them.
