Guys i have never had a supressed gun and ive noticed that alot of yall are hunting hogs and other varmits with em and im wondering if they are that quiet that u can get more rounds off at a group of hogs or just better for your hearing? Just wondering if there are any advantages worth the money for the permit and the supresser.

Both. I've taken up to 5 hogs at a time with a bolt gun. They hear the shots they just don't know where exactly they come from so they don't know which way to run.

There's no permit required for a suppressor, just a $200 tax stamp.

I run a Rem 700 AAC in 300 blk out, and my son runs a Tikka T3 Varmint in 223, both are suppressed. The main benefit I see is the much quieter report of the rifle. It does reduce the sound in the field, and does not scare off the deer, pigs, or other animals as bad. Plus, it does reduce the recoil. I would not say that the suppressor makes it any quicker for a follow up shot with a bolt gun.

A few years ago, from an elevated blind, I shot over 3 deer to take the furthest deer away when shooting suppressed. The deer heard the shot and impact of the bullet, were startled but went back to eating and were not alarmed. It will certainly reduce the report of the rifle. It will be hard for me not to hunt suppressed now. It is certainly worth it, IMO.

I thought you needed a federal permit signed by a local law enforcement chief. Is all that out the window now?

How loud is a 300 blackout subsonic suppressed at a little bit of a distance? 30 yards? 100 Yards? Can you hear it at 100 yards?

Wait a second, are you telling me you don't need an trust or anything set up and no permit from the govt to get a suppressor? I have read about people waiting for their permits to come through to get their "can"...I always assumed this was a suppressor but maybe I am wrong?

So I can go into any store that sells suppressors and get one by just paying a 200 tax in addition to the cost of the thing?

I think the problem here is your calling it a permit and he is calling it a tax stamp. From my understanding, no, you can not just go down pay your $200 and get a stamp.

There has never been a permit required to buy any NFA item. You still have to do the paperwork and apply for the stamp.

I don't call a postage stamp a letter permit but whatever.

ok, so that's where the rub is. I am looking at silencer shops website right now, and it still sounds like there is some sort of federal process, with fingerprints and all that...a process, not just laying down an extra 200 bucks as I stated.

Might have to look into this more. It would make things interesting.

You can walk down to the post office and buy a postage stamp in real time and use it also. The two are not similar. Your just being difficult.

It not difficult to get NFA items. I'd file for a NFA item than go to get my drivers license renewed.
