Im pretty sure that would be illegal.... why the hell do u need a silencer anyway???? who dont you want to hear you? and what do you plan on doing?
Typical uneducated attitude towards firearms related questions.
"Silencers" DO NOT silence guns, and are not deadly wicked tools of super ninjas and assassins the world over, in spite of what Hollywood tells you.
A "Silencer", or more accurately, a suppressor only muffles the blast of the explosion, but does not cancel out the noise of the action or the
bullet's sonic crack. You will still hear a very distinct sound as the gun is fired, and anyone within radius will know a gun was fired, but it will
do significantly less damage to the hearing of those who are nearby.
The EPA states that anything louder than 85 db is "unsafe" or "hazardous", and that 115 db is considered "a serious health hazard". The EPA
also states that you are obligated to take immediate action to try and reduce the noise emission and/or provide hearing protection to those exposed.
However, a rifle (156 db) can not have its noise reduced by Federal Law.
Anyone who is still under the impression that silencers are as portrayed in movies should contact their local class3 dealer and ask for a
demonstration of a silencer on both a handgun and a rifle. It is incredible how unrealistic the common image of a sound suppressor is in this
If anyone REALLY wants to know, U2U me and I'll dig out some literature on suppressors and their construction. I'm not sure about other countries,
but here in the USA information alone in not illegal yet, so I will only send this info to my American brothers and sisters.
