Using suppressor-equipped rifles, pistols and shotguns is now legal for all hunting in Florida. Map from American Suppressor Association. Using gun mufflers, sometimes referred to as...

    Today, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission voted unanimously to repeal the 57 year old prohibition on the use of firearm suppressors for taking deer, gray squirrels, rabbits, wild turkeys, quail, and crows. Following the passage of the new regulation, the Commission then voted unanimously to authorize an Executive Order to allow the measure to take effect immediately. Minutes later, Executive Order # EO 14-32 was signed, making hunting with suppressors for all animals in the state legal, effective immediately. The new regulation amends 68A-12.002 General Methods of Taking Game; Prohibitions by striking “silencer equipped” from the language.
  • Silencers (Suppressors)? How many FReepers are Stamp Collectors?

    Well, FRiends.. Last Wednesday, Springfield Armory shipped my XDm .45 with FedEx to my home, and it should be here this Monday. They had it because each XDm barrel is custom fit for each gun, and to install a threaded, extended barrel for suppressor use, they required the entire pistol be shipped to their shop. Note to future stamp collectors: Get ALL of your extracurricular armory work done while waiting for your tax stamp. Hopefully, by Monday evening, I will be getting a knock on my door and my 4.5 inch baby will be delivered. I need to check their...

    Daniel Defense is supporting efforts to repeal the ban on suppressors for hunting in the state of Georgia. To this end, they have developed a pre-composed email that will be sent to your local Representative and Senator as well as members of the Game, Fish, and Parks Committee. Georgia is currently the number two state in the number of suppressors registered under the National Firearms Act. If Senate Bill 93 is passed, Georgia will become the 32nd that allows suppressors for hunting. The link to the email is here.

    Senior Navy civilians investigated in alleged scheme to defraud military for $1.6 million Federal authorities are investigating three senior Navy intelligence officials as part of a probe into an alleged contracting scheme that charged the military $1.6 million for homemade firearm silencers that cost only $8,000 to manufacture, court records show. The three civilian officials, who oversee highly classified programs, arranged for a hot-rod auto mechanic in California to build a specially ordered batch of unmarked and untraceable rifle silencers and sell them to the Navy at more than 200 times what they cost to manufacture, according to court...
  • Guns, smoking, texting among hot issues revived for another look by Oklahoma legislature

    OKLAHOMA CITY - Guns, smoking and texting while driving are among issues that lawmakers are expected to revisit when they return to the state Capitol on Feb. 6. Thursday is the deadline in both chambers for lawmakers to file bills for consideration in the upcoming session. Sen. Steve Russell, R-Oklahoma City, has filed Senate Bill 1092, which would allow those who meet certain requirements to openly carry a weapon. Russell also has a measure that would allow hunters to use suppressors to reduce the sound of their weapons. The measure has yet to be assigned a bill number, according to...

    St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 27 May, 2009 | Kurt Hofmann
    Yesterday's article was about the strict federal regulation of a safety device (improved ergonomics lead to better stability and control, and the better a firearm is controlled, the safer it is). In a comment, a reader pointed out another firearm safety device that is even more strictly regulated by the federal government (with, in many states, additional regulation by the state--to the point of outright bans). I refer, of course, to suppressors. As with vertical fore grips, the BATFE enthusiastically enforces their interpretation of laws regulating suppressors, to the extent that they have prosecuted (persecuted?) people because they possessed rubber...

    Enemies of RKBA & NFA in Nevada identified! Every time a good bill on our RKBA comes up, particularly bills to expand our CCW permits, it is the Nevada Sheriff's & Chief's Association that opposes it. It seems they are dominated by the liberal Clark County (Vegas) clique. I need sincere ideas on ways to diminish their influence with the state legislature. I am sick of attending hearings and watching the committee members pay scant attention to the public, then come to attention when the NSCA lobbyist takes his turn! Right now there is a bill making it's way through...
