Hi, I'm thinking of purchasing a Ruger 22/45 LITE...Below.

http://www.ruger.com/products/2245Lite/models.html

The question I have is I would like to put a Suppressor on it, The store is saying they are not illegal
Suppressors are absolutely legal to own as long as they are not restricted in your state. I live in PA. For most of America, there aren't any restrictions at all.

Suppressors are ALOT of fun! I have a SS Sparrow (.22lr) they are a hoot! This would probably be better served in the NFA section as there are specific steps needed to get a Class III item. I would contact a Class III dealer in your area for the specifics. I just purchased another can a few days ago.
Dont let the times deter you, the wait goes by pretty fast especially the older you get! :D

I'm going to move this to the NFA forum...

The store is both right and wrong. Supressors are perfectly legal if you do the proper paperwork and wait for ATF approval.

Form 4:

Certificate of Compliance:

Finger Print Cards:

You also need to find a Class 3 dealer to do the transfer, I'd guess that they probably have all these forms.

Thats absolutely CORRECT. They are not Illegal. If the store is telling you that they ARE Illegal, find another store that knows what they are talking about.

What is your question? You stated a desire.

They are lots of fun. I have 3 of them and I love all 3!

What you need to know is that there is a 6 month - 9 month wait after you buy the suppressor. There is also a $200.00 tax on them on top of the price.

You are making a good decision starting with a 22 suppressor. They can be very quiet. If you want others that is cool but I highly recommend starting on a 22lr.

You say you want to put a suppressor on a Ruger, say you have a question, don't ask a question, say that suppressors are legal, then re-state that suppressors are legal.

There's no need to get all snarky. Let it go.
