Keep your eyes open for sales.
Sometimes Gemtech and/or AAC will run a sale in which they will cover the tax stamp on some of their higher end models.
My local suppressor dealer will fill out all the paperwork for you, all you have to do is get the local sheriff to sign off on it.
My dealer doesn't charge anything other than purchase price to transfer the suppressor.
Suppressors are the only Class III item that are worth the price in my opinion.
Especially .22 suppressor on pistols. It sounds like a pellet rifle going off.
I hope one day they will be legal for purchase without a tax stamp. It makes shooting much more pleasant for both the shooters and those nearby.
