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 have also increased. Many states that have legalized suppressors still have CLEOs who refuse to sign for individuals to purchase them. An 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.

Not only is there a special application for the California Permit but one needs to establish good cause that they have a clear and convincing reason and there is a bona fide market or public necessity for the issuance of the permit. Kevin goes through the 8 valid reasons defined in 11 CCR 4128(b). All of the reasons that would apply to an individual require that you have a valid FFL except for (4) collectors of destructive devices.

Unless you are a police department, branch of the government, in the entertainment industry you will need to come up with a clear and convincing commercial need for the machine gun permit.


After a year off, AAC is holding the Silencer Shoot again in Crawfordsville Arkansas (just outside Memphis).

Gun Trust Lawyer® is helping to sponsor the event and raise money for this years charity. While the silencer shoot is not silent, it is a far cry from the noise at Knob Creek. We will be giving away trusts and look forward to meeting many of our new clients. For more information on the event check out AAC’s Silencer Shoot 2011 event page.

Remember that even though you do not need a 5320.20 to travel with your silencer across state lines, we recommend getting approval to avoid the unnecessary detention of yourself or firearms while uninformed officers determine that you are rightfully and legally in possession of a silencer.
