      It's easier to pay $250 than $400-1000. Due to the tax stamp, more advanced suppressors will probably always be more popular, but there will also still be a place for the low-end market.

      The $50 mono-core aluminum suppressor might be good enough for certain applications. Some people pay $75 plus tax stamp for a threaded adapter to put automotive oil filters on the end of their gun.

        Does that work, practically speaking? I thought if you did the the filter would be considered a suppressor part and you couldn’t replace it without doing another Form.
        If I can shoot out the filter and then just buy another at autozone, with only the adapter being serialized, I might actually consider doing this.

        I think if NFA items weren't behind a $200 additional tax that people would complain a lot less about having to wait.
        I suggest a two-tiered system of NFA taxes and wait times:

        >tier 1: Poverty tier
        Free tax stamp, standard wait time.
        >tier 2: Gucci NATO deathsquad tier
        $200 tax stamp, 90 days at the most guaranteed

        What the hell are they doing that doesn’t happen with a 4473 check that takes ~20 minutes? I’ve never understood why this takes so long.

          please understand, the goal was to make the overhead and expense so great that it would effectively be a ban. they are just trying to enforce the spirit of the law.

          no you can't.

          That right there is the mentality behind companies who overprice their suppressors.

          yes, because that's what reality is. if I could buy a can for 100 bucks on a instantaneous 4473, I would. my 4473s take like, 35 seconds. but I can't, so you bet your ass I'm going to make sure that something that took ~1% of my fricking life to get isn't gonna be a piece of shit like he recommended making. the money is cheaper to me than my time.

          >It's easier to pay $250 than $400-1000.
          to be totally honest, my purely disposable income with respect to 8-9 months of waiting makes the difference between 250 and 1000 dollars totally irrelevant. that's what the wait does. I suspect most people that can get a luxury recreational good like a suppressor can find 150 bucks when balanced against nearly an entire year's budget.

                then make a rational argument against any of my points you sniveling assmad homosexual.
                the wait, not the stamp cost causes the shift towards higher end suppressors in the United States. that's the reality of the situation. if transfers were rapid there would be a place in the market for used cans, which are obscenely rare now. so people treat suppressor purchases as things more permanent than a fricking home or car. in 10 years I probably won't be driving the same car I am today. I have absolutely no intention of changing my possession of any of the cans I own thus far.

            You are correct. For me it was never about the extra money, it’s about paying a good amount of money, getting fingerprinted like a criminal, and waiting 8-12 months for something being artificially held up. I hated the game so I didn’t want to play it.

        A $1000 suppressor and a $200 tax stamp is between $100-150 per month if you spread that over the wait period of 8-12 months. That’s not very much for a hobby or entertainment for most people with jobs making $70k+ or over the age of 30.

        That suppressor will also last your entire life. No one would bat an eye at spending $1200 on a laptop that might last 5 years.

      $200 is how much a cheap gun costs, if the barrier was only a $200 tax then i would have a surpressor. the fact that you have to go through a six month background check where you have to jump through hoops, tell them where you live, tell them where you're keeping the supressor, and are legally required by law to tell them where you're keeping it and tell them when you move it across state lines, is only something a moron would do

      it's not about $200, it's never been about $200. i impulse purchase $200 all the time. i'd purchase a $200 tax stamp if it wasn't an elaborate scheme to make you justify doing something against your own value system because an authority is dangling something over your head that makes you feel like you're financially responsible if you buy it.

          The point of the NFA and BFAT isn't to make sense or make anyone's life easier, it's to make gun ownership as much of an embuggerance as possible. They wanted to ban everything except a shotgun or bolt action hunting rifle and they've been seething about not being able to for nearly a hundred years.

    This is why cheap cans don't really take off. A $100 can is also a pipe dream. $2-300 for intermediate cartridges is more likely based in aero's pricing for theirs. That puts you up to $5-600 when you could just get the real thing for 9-1100.

        No you can't. Decent cans are upwards of $500, actually good ones are around $1k.
        You don't actually own one.
