    Default homemade suppressor

    someone in the nfa community told me that you can apply for a suppressor and when you get the paper work back you can begin to make it yourself

    is there any truth in this

    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....

    This is an easy one. Stick a potato on the end of a revolver and shoot. The first shot will be quiet!

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