    Interesting video discussing can's and how they fit in with the 1934 NFA and the modern push for gun control efforts.

    One thing that struck me while watching this video was that if the mass majority of suppressors are registered and they are designed for specific calibers, would it not make it easier for the .gov to come after those that are on that list?

    Moderators, if you feel this would be a better fit elsewhere, feel free to move it.

    Supposedly, the NFA restricted and regestered stuff is protected better then normal things! It wouldnt be a stretch for the antis to go after them, but it would be a bigger challenge!

    This being the remnants of the United States of America, where Liberty is touted in extremis, I don't tend to pay too much attention to what type of weapons I wish to manufacture for personal defense and consider it none of anybody else's business. The proletariat can pass any bs laws and regulations they wish, I really don't think it's worth bothering with.

    Maybe they should start by rounding up the unregistered NFA.

    They can't even keep track of what's on the registry now. I'm not saying there aren't old war trophies in
    dusty attics all across the country that missed the 1968 NFA amnesty, or stuff that's just been built. I'm saying that it's like finding a needle in one huge hay stack.

    I'll be keeping my eye out for big heavy stainless tube. That permanently attached muzzle loader suppressor looks like it might be fun.

    That .50 cal muzzleloader is fun and it's not a suppressor and it can be mailed to your front door with NO paperwork

    I guess if it's not a suppressor I can call it whatever I like. Sir Hiram Maxim called his design a "silencer." maxshush.
    Not a tough build, and using large diameter internals and having no other tube of similar diameter it'd be hard to prove constructive possession of unregistered suppressors.

    Just looking at the Silencerco site and I don't see the Maxim 50 anymore. Too bad.
