Default A quiet mouse

Pretty simple, I need a mouse that's either clickless, or at the very least, comparatively quiet.

Are there mice that are quiet(er)? I don't care about it being wireless or not, I would prefer a laser mouse over a ball, if ball mice even exist anymore.

It's for gaming, but I don't need anything fancy, a wheel and two buttons is good.

Looking for something affordable, anything below... I dunno, $60, is fine?

I've never bought a mouse for my computer before, all of them have either been free or second hand.

Somebody wants to play video games without their parents knowiiiing...
Also, this is a pretty easy fix. Yes, there are clickless mice, but really, you can do it yourself. The click is removable, they put it there intentionally because hearing the click improves productivity and accuracy (it's true!). Just look up how to.
If you aren't feeling particularly diy, yeah you can buy one. Why you would ask us is beyond me though, considering you can just type "noiseless mice" into google shop.

It's not really about them not-knowing, they're just annoyed by the sound and they put my PC in the living room, instead of my room.

If I can just fix it so my mouse is quieter, that would be fine, I figured the silence would be a niche option. I'll look up how I guess.

Thank you.

Yeah no problem. I only mentioned the parent stuff because I basically had the same problem.
It was an older mouse that I messed with, so I was okay with risking damaging it. I was actually really surprised it worked out when I finished, because I hadn't really done anything like that before.

Doesn't look my mouse can be modified in that way, so I'll have to buy one. Oh well, taking it apart was kinda fun.

I really don't think lubrication is the answer for this particular problem.

Like when your key starts to stick in the ignition of your car! I hate that.

http://www.amazon.com/Noiseless-Opti...s=silent+mouse

This seems fine, reviews are decent, price is right, and looks similar to the one I have.

Ok, those apparently wont ship to canada.

I checked Amazon (.ca and .com), NewEgg, Best Buy and Future Shop, and everything seems to either have a lot of poor reviews, or like the one I linked, won't ship to Canada.

I'll look on e-Bay in a bit, if they're got nothing, I'm a bit stumped where to look.

I know that feeling. I tend to get a little violent on my keyboard, myself.

Ok, I found someone selling the same mouse I linked earlier, on eBay, so I bought one.

They don't want him looking up dirty pictures on the internet.
