Okay, negative rep for everyone in this thread... Talk about 'bait & switch'!

When I read "Homemade Suppressor", I thought I'd finally get advice on silencing the nagging (while still getting fed)....

Talk to ya later guys, I gotta go fix the disposal....

There is nothing wrong with making your own suppressor (provided you have the tools/knowhow)
AFTER receiving an approval on a ATF Form 1
