That might be the best option. Around here guys are always looking for an opportunity to shoot hogs. If you have to wait 9 months you may not have a farm left.

I have a Thunder Beast .22 suppressor that took about 7 months for approval. I am now into month 9 waiting for a SilencerCo Omega 9mm suppressor.


I have had an FFL almost 40 years out of my home, no storefront. I am often asked if that helps get a suppressor; sadly, no, it doesn't.


I've been told by several that there is a Bill in Congress to make a suppressor just like a firearm...pass the background check and take it home. I assume the latest mass shootings caused the GOP to back off on pushing such a Bill; now the Democratic House likely would not pass it anyway....although it might get a few Democrat votes from those in vulnerable districts.

Aint that the truty. Now I'm seeing nigh vision drones so that you can find them in the dark.....sneak up on em. This isn't going to end money wise. At least drones and scopes I can purchase any old day, no wait. 300 blackout is good for what specifically? 1917

Dropping a 220gr bullet into a target at 400 yards with the accuracy of a rifle and energy that exceeds a .45ACP from the muzzle, silently, if you have the suppressor to go with it.
