I just bought my first camera. A Pentax k1000. I really want to eliminate my shutter sound or just the sound of the mirror slapping. What do you suggest

There is no option to silence the Pentax K1000 mirror. The K1000 does not have an option for mirror lock-up. You would want to look at a SLR that has mirror lock-up as an option or for a camera that does not have a mirror.
