What the law allows is that IF you have a federal-registered silencer, THEN you may use it on your hunting rifle. You still have to jump through the hoops to get BATF approval for possession.
Thanks for the clarification!
There are some hoops to navigate,and you have to really want one. There is also a tax stamp for $200 or more now.
I’ve looked into this an am going to get one, but I still haven’t found the fine print that gives the ATF the right to ‘inspect’ your home and gun holdings.....I’m reasonably certain it is there.
