Not yet, I need to get the stingers, SA-6s, and maybe a Mi-22 before I consider invading anyone.

I've been trying to get an FFL-3 (dealer's license), so that I can buy a silencer from these local guys (the one for me is the top level, right hand side): http://dalphon.com/silencers.html I love my H&K USP. Very accurate, good feel, nice groupings. My girlfriend likes it too, says it fits her hand well. She also really likes the mossberg 590 that I gave her. That mossberg saved my life when I was living in San Diego. Some drunk Marine jerkoff got into a fight with my roomate in front of our apartment, and then his buddies decided to all come over after my friend literally KO'd the guy. One of them had a pistol and kicked in my front door. I was standing by the entrance hallway with my Mossberg pointed at the doorway (and him standing there). He waved his gun around a bit, pointed it at me, he was yelling at me to get my friend so they could go outside and all this crap, and then for some reason he just kind of staggered out, and I called the police. It was bizarre and pretty frightening overall. What was funny though about the whole situation is that the idiot bragged to the cops about how he had kicked in my door and barged in, gun and everything. The cop came over and asked if the guy was telling the truth, he didn't believe anyone would be stupid enough to do such a thing first of all, and then brag about it to the cops when they showed up. At one point, the cop told me the guy would probably be charged with at least 2-3 felonies. I don't understand idiots like that.

why the fuck would any civillian want or need a silencer?

Oh, before the gunfight breaks out over arms control I scanned the wallet some asked about, it's made by Mulholland Brothers - this is it after 6 years or so of continuous use

For hearing protection, maybe? They are REQUIRED in some areas, in Finland for example. They are not just for assassinations, you know. Besides, they are cool.

You are in WA, so you don't need a license to buy a suppressor (silencer). You can get one with the usual ATFE rigamarole. However, it is illegal to use one in the state of Washington. You can't get around that law. Carlo, very nice holster, er.. wallet.

LOL - In Texas folks have handguns and open beverage containers in their car. Why that seems incomprehensible elsewhere you can pretty much count on Dallas drivers being polite and not honking :-)

J - Hey, I like your clever posts, btw. What part of Seattle are you in? I'm currently living/working downtown, moving to apartment on Capital Hill this weekend. What area are you in? Are you sure about the surpressor and only need standard ATF papers for it? I thought you were required to have an FFL-3, or whatever it's called. I only want the surpressor so when we go plinking, my girlfriend will not have to wear the ear protection. Also, I think surpressors are just plain cool, and it would be great fun to go plinking with one while wearing my bowler and a 3-piece suit. Heh heh heh.

well, I think that we went through this before - but it seems a pretty poor reason to have a weapon around, because it is cool. on the other hand, if you really want to play, you can always sign up, spend a few years getting trained on uncle sam's dime, and maybe get a chance to use a silencer, and get paid to do it.

LP: I live on Sand Point, which is just northeast of the UW. I am pretty sure about the suppressor. Talk to someone at Wade's gun shop in Bellevue - they have a few in stock and can tell you about how to get one. It's a $200 tax and a background check, and a waiting period of months. But you still won't be able to legally use it in WA. GT: A suppressor, regardless of how the US tax agencies look at it, is not a weapon. And killing people is not the only reason to have one, either. Uncle Sam doesn't let you stick to targets.

Ah, Sand Point, my girlfriend has an art studio there. Cool place. We do all our range shooting at Wade's, so I'll ask next time I'm there. I love the way they let you rent guns, for one price you can use any gun you want. That is a lot of fun. It was hilarious watching my girlfriend shoot that 9mm AR15 they've got.
post #42 of 61
I thought AR-15s were 5.56mm? My latest gun purchase, HK MP5 with Raptor-40 suppressor. This thing is ultra quiet. One thing you have to realize about suppressors is that you don't want to shoot regularly with them because they aren't designed to last too long... at $300/pop they're not a great investment for daily shooting, just use ear protectors

ar-15's come in a variety of calibers, although I am not positive that they are called ar-15's in other calibers, the basic model of a short m-16 has a bunch of different names. I've fired them in 9mm and 45 caliber.

sorry, J, I hate to argue with a man on his website, but that is like saying that condoms aren't jsut for sex, you can make water baloons with them or use them to waterproof things. true, silencers are not just for killing people - but the only real utility they have is to kill people without attracting attention. there are only a handful of lawful applications for that, and if you are not drawing a government paycheck then you are not involved in one. everything else is a stretch - using them for hunting, using them for plinking. enough said, we have had this conversation before.

drizz - they've got one of those converted models, I'm not sure it could be called an AR-15, but I think it's a Bushmaster. They might have it listed on their site or something. I think they converted it to 9mm so that it is safer to use on a pistol range. Obviously, you would not want someone rapidly firing off rounds from a .223 or .308 AR-15 in a concrete indoor shooting range. Next door to the normal range is a restricted area where law enforcement brings their weapons. Last time we went shooting, they were over there blasting away with a bunch of full-autos. I was very impressed with the heavy sound of the MP-5. It actually felt like it was rumbling the floor a bit. Quite a bit different than what you see on television, and a very worthwhile argument to anyone who might consider a standoff with the police. Heh heh heh. Personally, I've always wanted a "chopper" - one of those Thompson .45 machine guns from the 20's. Not to shoot it, it'd just be fun to have an authentic one hanging above the mantel. Heh heh.
