I'm not sure exactly what you're referring to here but any device which threads to the end of a gun and is designed to or actually does reduce it's sound levels is defined by the ATF as a silencer and requires specific paperwork to be legal.
There is no legal (or other) distinction between "silencers" and "suppressors". They are two names for identical devices.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
