I read something recently that claimed an informal survey found that if you drive a Ford pick up, you are more likely to have a Remington deer rifle. If you drive a Chevy pick up, you are more likely to have a Winchester deer rifle.

I wonder if there is a correlation between Dodge ownership and Savage or Ruger? Toyota and Sako? Nissan and Howa? Honda and Weatherby?

Your a dam lucky bastard to be able to hunt with suppressors.

It amazes me that you can buy a suppressor easier in the UK than in the USA.

Thanks to Liberalwood movies Suppressors are only used by criminals and thugs.

There might be a lil truth to that, my daddy drives a ford and he owns a remington model 700, one of my uncle drives a dodge and he carries a ruger, got another uncle drives a honda ridline and he carries a weatherby 257, and i am a chevy man and i got a winchester model 70. lol, not even kidding, so you are close to something there

It isn't easy buying a sound moderator here in the UK as they treated as firearms. We have to prove it is required, scaring game and shooter hearing are justifiable reasons, then the permission to buy is added to our permit but only for the gun you specified.
Strangely if a sound mod is bought for a low powered air rifle (not on a firearms permit) it can be bought by anyone - even a young kid. Because of this stupid discrepency there is talk that section 1 Firearm moderators will come off "the ticket" in the near future.
I think you lot can thank James Cagney (Angels with dirty faces ?) for giving people the impression that "silencers" made your gun quieter that a gnat's fart and therefore only gangsters used them !!

suppressors trap the gas coming out of the barrel so it makes them a lot quieter. but it still doesn't make them completely silent. Its a huge advantage either way you look at it.

It is considered bad manners in European countries (and the UK. I know, the UK is not a part of Europe) to hunt w/o a suppressor. You don't want a bunny hugger a half mile away to have to hear a gun shot. It would remind them that Bambi just died. They would be crushed.

must be nice, if you get caught with one in the united states there is a good chance they will put you under the jail.

I'm not sure where that came from Robocop but it's the first I've heard of it. A good friend of mine who qualifies deer hunters uses a muzzle brake and boy is that loud. A fair old percentage just have the rifle as standard.

Although we are an island we are still technically classed as Europe personally I wish the continental drift would get a move on and shove us away from Europe and closer to your continent.

Gee wiz, Sigmund Freud himself couldn't figure this stuff out. I drive a Toyota truck, pull a trailer with a John Deere Gator on it, hunt with a lever action Marlin, and carry a Sig handgun. What does all that say about me??????????????? I like quality products that do what they are suppose to do? Can it really be that simple?
