if it's not a silencer why do you want one?
unless you have stock in the item, I can't see the benefit going by your description.

You must have missed my earlier post in this thread.
Silencers don't make a gun silent.

Sorry, Salty. I never said I want one. In fact I've said the opposite. I have no idea where that off the wall comment concerning stock comes from. I own stock in lots of things. Suppressors probably not.

My question is why suppressors are regulated at all. I can't them to be of much value to criminals.

Some people just push other people out of windows, or stab them, or drive cars into them, or club them to death, or poison them, or bore them to death with how great Hilary is, et cetera, DUH!


One thing I will never do is pay serious attention to any antigun snowflake's blather.
