Weird, I know. But if, God forbid, I have to shoot someone, I expect making noise doing it will be the very least of my worries.

The title "Much Ado About Nothing" comes to mind when I read threads like this.
I agree with you. They are big and ugly. Make the gun rather unwieldy. Ear plugs are pretty cheap to purchase.

The point that we have been not to vague on, is that a suppressor is nothing more exotic than a small engine muffler, is in no way a weapon dangerous or otherwise, even if someone one were to beat you with it would not do as much damage as hands and feet!!! Yet they regulate it, $200. fee it, even if it is the glorified pipe fitting!!!!

A suppressor is not for CC, way too bulky, difficult to holster, to draw, or to attach in a pinch, AKA awkward, they are for the fun factor

It is a huge giggle to go out in the backyard, and run a mag unencumbered by any sweaty hearing protection, with the only sound you hear is the action operating and the clank the round makes as it hits the steel target, way cool is all I have to say

On a side note in the EU it is considered bad form and out right rude to shoot a unsuppressed gun, is required to own (in the areas that still allow guns that is) and can be bought cheaply, with no government regulation...
All that from a government this regulation insane...

They regulate it for the purpose of generating some form of registration for weapons. "Let's see, Joe Blow here has a suppressor for an AR-15. That sounds like reasonable cause to search his place for the (someday in the future) illegal weapon. Let's go confiscate some more guns..."

I never said there was any real world use for this, just a fun fact to know, and to play around with. The only reason I want one is so I can shoot with my 2 year old son outside with me cuz he wont keep ears on for nothing. Also for those pesky armadillos at midnight when I don't want to wake up the entire neighborhood.

Cheaper and easier idea...
Bought a .22 lr conversion bolt for my M-4 style Bushmaster,adjustable stock, inexpensive to shoot and buy, it installs in seconds, almost 0 recoil, and it is almost as quiet as a silenced gun.
I was shooting at snapping turtles in my fish pond, and the plunk the bullet made as it entered the water was louder than the guns discharge, and yes the action cycle is louder than the bang..

whether it's a glorified pipe fitting or not is irrelevent in the eyes of the BATF. anything you attach to a firearm that suppresses the sound any bit, and you don't have the proper paperwork and tax stamp is illegal. that's a simple fact.

and properly made suppressor is way more exotic than a muffler.

now you can do whatever floats your boat in regards to putting a homemade suppressor on one of your firearms and that's your business. but here on this forum, they do frown upon people promoting or talking about doing thins illegally. just something to think about.

no one has said anything about doing anything illegal here. No one has said they was going to make their own and screw the ATF. I've talked about how easy it would be to do that but I've also said that it would be illegal and shouldn't be done. This is just a thread about something that is legal with the right paperwork and kinda neat in its own little way. Now if someone was to post how they just made their own and went out and blasted away with it then people should be concerned about it being on the forum, until then I don't see how anything that's been said on here is illegal.

Statistics show that a black gun is 5x more dangerous than a wood stock gun. it also allows the use of baby seeking bullets and 25% more satanic rituals than a normal gun. JK

along the same lines as this.... a couple years ago a local PD ran a promotion, "get free gun locks to keep your gun safe, as many as you want, just give us your name & address." what they actually did was put all these names in a database so if a 911 call comes from one of these addresses, they know how many firearms may be on the property.

I personally don't get why a suppressor needs all the regulations they have, with that said, i'm not willing to risk a possible felony & ruined life to take a shortcut around the laws.

I talked to a guy at the range last summer that suppressed his Savage 10 in .223, said he used it for prairie dog hunting. he could pop them easily past 100 yards without them hearing the shot that got 'em.
