Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

Hunting with a supressed firearm doesn't seem very sporting to me but, if it's legal where you live go for it.

Last year during muzzelloader season I got a 6 point with a second shot. I missed the first time and the wind carried the smoke over to him. The deer actually stopped to smell the smoke while I was reloading! My second shot nailed him in the heart and dropped him after an 85 yard run.

My state does not allow supressors. I wish they did, as one would make a great range toy...

Supressors are fairly common among hunters in Finland. They are used to protect the shooter's hearing, not to get more rounds at the animal without it noticing...Also when hunting in low light situations, the supressor eliminates the muzzle flash so it's easier to follow your target through the scope. I think a supressor is a very useful thing to have on a hunting rifle but it does add some weigth to the gun.
