So you work for one of the few government bodies that are allowed suppressors in Australia? Because regular citizens can't own them

regardless of how your grandfather was in possession of it, how can you legally own something that's illegal for a citizen to own?

granted i don't know about gun laws specifically in Australia, but here in the US being in possession of an illegal firearm or NFA item is a felony. i can't see it being much different in Australia given the strict gun laws.
