Just and addition to the conversation on suppressors.
I like hunting in New Zealand. They have very strict gun registration and permitting laws. Yet, a NZ resident can drive down to the local sporting goods store and select a suppressor from hundreds on display, pay his $100 NZ, and walk out the door.
I agree that suppressor's being an NFA item doesn't make much sense.
BTW, hunting possums at night with a suppressed 10/22 is great fun!
