Where can I hunt with Suppressors (Silencers): Updated List:

Thumbnail image for 50calsilencer.jpgWhile in some states, it is illegal to hunt with a Silencer, in the following states it is legal to hunt with a suppressor (often referred to as a "silencer").

In states where hunting with suppressors have been legalized, we have seen substantial increases in the sales of suppressors and the wait times for approval from the ATF has also increased. Many states that have legalized suppressors still have CLEOs who refuse to sign for individuals to purchase them. A NFA Gun Trust or a more flexible Gun trust can not only avoid the CLEO signature requirement in most states but can also provide many benefits to firearms owners and their families. To learn about the benefits please fill out the contact us form at the top of this page and request information on what a gun trust is and how they may benefit you.

Remember these laws change frequently, so please verify this with your state prior to hunting with a suppressor.

South Carolina law relating to Title II firearms, Class 3 tax stamps, and the NFA

Under the South Carolina Code Section 16-23-220, it is unlawful to possess most Title II weapons.  These weapons are listed in South Carolina Code Section 16-23-210, and include machine guns, sawed off shotguns, and sawed off rifles.  However, a person may possess these Title II weapons if he or she falls under an exemption listed under Section 16-23-250 or Section 23-31-330.  Most South Carolina gun owners will fall under Section 16-23-250 which permits persons to own such Title II weapons if they are authorized to do so by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF).  Therefore, if a person is approved by the AFT to own the Title II weapon, he or she may possess the weapon in accordance with South Carolina law.
