I'm Not buying a Silencer? Here's why....
....because I can't afford even the $300.00 Federal Tax Stamp. That has to be added to each and every Silencer you buy. Good Silencers here in Indianapolis run anywhere from 500 to over a 1000 US Dollars.
If I need to shoot, I'll shoot. I'll worry about my hearing afterwards. I'm sure as heck not going to be concerned about the Thug/Punk's hearing that caused me to shoot.
