Suppressors are probably the best addition to a firearm collection a person can buy. They are absolutely legal in 41 states as of 2016, are extremely practical and make shooting a lot more fun. I can assure you, once you’ve fired your weapon with a suppressor, you won’t want to shoot it again without!
Don’t believe what you might have been told or read in the past. There is nothing illegal or difficult about owning a suppressor. It is a simple process of paperwork and what is called an SOT. That is a Special Occupational Tax that is paid directly to the government for your approval to own an item that falls under the National Firearms Act, that is, the NFA. These are items such as suppressors, short barrel rifles and short barrel shotguns.
Wait times for Form 4 approvals are taking a little over 6 months as of August 2016. I can only expect wait times to increase given the popularity of suppressors in 2015, the highest sales year on record.
