I hate to say it, but I've seen worse. After the fact of coarse. I guy put 2 of 5 rounds into a Moose, a friggen Moose at less then 100 yards w/ a .30-06 7600. Did not hit any vitals. 6 hours later they found it 12 miles away, dyeing. The Moron put another bullet into its' head and began to celebrate. I'd rather see a total miss then a Mall ninja w/ a supressed rifle have a wounded runner.

Game animals are 100% tuned to their environment, they know what sounds should be there, and those that are foreign. A suppressor will not help at all.

BTW WA, I like Muff!
I shot 3 deer out of a herd of 8, with a 7mmRM at 80 yards. They just stood there and watched.

Deer are stupid

This reminds me of when I was hunting with my dad when I was about 11 or 12. We saw a large doe and a button buck. He told me to shoot the button buck. (We didn't know it was a button buck at the time it looked like a smaller doe). I dropped it instantly. He then took the gun from me and missed the big doe 4 times, while she stood there looking right at us. She finally turned and ran off. I was very mad and 8 years later I still give him hell about that

I don't believe supressors are sporting for hunting, but I see no reason why you should not be able to own one for shooting at the range and such.

I have a few suppressors, if you find an animal you want to shoot that is 700 yards away, just shoot a big rock behind the animal. It will hear the bullet hit the rock behind and run towards you. You can cohearse the animal closer to you with a suppressor. It is the best thing you will ever buy for yourself. It is so fun to put a 300 Win Mag suppressor on a .308 and then hear the bullet hit a coyote at 500 yds.

To my understanding silencers are illegal in Pa. I could be wrong but as far as i know they are. I would love to have one tho!

As best as I can tell, silencers are legal for private ownership in the following states: AL, AR, AK, AZ, CO, CT, FL, GA, ID, IN, KY, LA, ME, MD, MS, MT, NE, NV, NH, NM, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, WA, WV, WI, and WY.

You MUST go thru the process to register one with the BATFE, you must be 21, and you must pay a one time $200 transfer tax on it. Whether they are legal for hunting is up to the game laws for each state.

C3, is that tax a one time deal or is it for each unit? I'm curious.

You pay a $200 tax on each suppressor and it takes six months for the paperwork to go thru.

As the man said- it is a tax paid once on each transfer (except no tax on an inherited class III item) You actually are buying a $200 stamp to go on the document.
