It does belong in the NFA section. That way no one wastes a post telling us that we need a license to own a silencer.
We lucked out though. We could have had someone like Harry Bonar telling us;
No legitamate sporting weapon or sportsman ever needs a silencer. .....And, I agree it is improper and immature to post such on a public forum.
When I see a silencer on a rifle I think that it is going to be used for an illegal purpose - and - that the individual using one isn't using it for hearing protection but for some stupid illegal purpose. The ONLY reason I personally can see for a silencer is poaching or some other erroneouus activity.
There is room to grow on this forum. People need to learn to read a llittle bit about the law instead of just making stuff up. I am always happy to help.
