My bad. Suppressors... Here in TX there is a shop that sells the threaded barrels and "Suppressors" I'm so used to the secret agent stuff lol.SHOOTER13 said:Actually...they are suppressors !
Sell them where...?
In the US, taxes and strict regulations affect the manufacture and sale of suppressors under the Ntional Firearms Act (NFA). They are legal for individuals to possess and use for lawful purposes in thirty nine of the fifty states. However, a prospective user must go through an application process administered by the BATFE, which requires a Federal tax payment of $200.00 and a thorough NICS. The tax stamp is the legal document allowing possession of a suppressor. The following states have explicitly banned any civilian from possessing a suppressor: California, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island.
THIS. Each state has different requirements. Here in Oklahoma it's pretty easy, considering. Since my FIL and I have a trust setup we just pay for said Class III item, fill out the paperwork with our trust's information, send it to the BATFE, and wait 6 months for a small little stamp to arrive at our FFL.Any local Class three dealer would be happy to walk you through the steps needed. Look one up and walk in to ask questions in person, it may turn out more helpful.
Yes, BATFE actually does called them silencers...a misnomer on their part.Actually, the BATFE refers to them as silencers. Everyone else calls them suppressors because they "suppress" sounds and not silence the gun and because many people still believe silencers are illegal (which they aren't).
thanks, I believe there is one about an hour from where I live.blackwolffcf said:Any local Class three dealer would be happy to walk you through the steps needed. Look one up and walk in to ask questions in person, it may turn out more helpful.
