    None that I know of....Just as long as you have proper documents and pay the extra money for it. ie: Machine guns, full auto, silenciers and short barreled shotguns/rifles.

    This is the land of plenty when it comes to firearms.

    Illegal guns.

    No such animal.

    Cash and carry. If you have the cash and can pick it up and carry it, it's yours.

    Oh, and we don't need big brother's permission to carry concealed either.
    Now what ?

    All guns are welcomed...however I'm starting to see Europe and New Zealand using silencers on their hunting rifles, wonder if we'll see them here.

    Silencing a round travelling at 4x the speed of sound would be a trick.

    Why would they do that, anyway? To avoid disturbing the non-shooters in the area?

    Moderators as they are known, are used to protect the shooters hearing in Europe and have been for decades. Parker Hale was one of the largest manufacturers. Silencers are really incorrect terminology. I would not be surprised if the use of the word "silencer" was a left over from the inventor Sir HIRAM MAXIUM. He was the inventor of the steam silencer used on steam locomotives. Among many of his inventions.

    May I ask what firearm you are considering and for what purpose? It might clarify the answers better.

    Four times the sped of sound hmmmm who hunts with such a caliber? The 220 Swift won't even do that.
    Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?

    The correct terminology is suppressor as in sound suppressor. They reduce the gas venting boom but do nothing for the super sonic crack of the bullet travel. Some states do not allow the possession of sound suppressors, some do not allow the possession of full auto gun, and some states permit ownership per federal requirements, but do not allow the use of full auto or suppressed guns. (class III)

    I think silencers came from the movies. I always like the "sniper" with the super powerful long range rifle with the "silencer" on the muzzle and his rifle barely makes a pffft sound, and has no recoil at all.

    20mm cannons
    Mini guns
    Howizters

    Most Naval guns.. 16" guns from the USS Iowa for Example (these are difficult to carry into the bush anyway...)

    Whoops:

    .....In dry air with a temperature of 21 C (70 F) the speed of sound is 344 m/s (1230 km/h, or 770 mph, or 1130 ft/s).....
    You caught me. I was thinking 770 (mph instead of fps), and multiplied by 4.

    Would 3x the speed of sound "sound" better?

    Movie firearms truly are special.

    They never run out of ammo, either.

    You're not moving to the peoples rebublik of Krapafornia where even being in the military (at least in Berkley) is becoming illegal. Bring them all and have fun!! I had the choice of orders to Germany or AK. I love the beer in Germany and studying WW II but I could not bring my guns there so here I am happy as ever!!

    In order for the report to be just a wisper or "pffft sound", the bullet needs to be traveling subsonic or less than the speed of sound. Supersonic bullets make a cracking sound as they speed by over the speed of sound. Or at least that is what my Marine Corps buddies tell me.

    I have heard it at various ranges walking down one range while a parrallel one is still in session. I believe Birchwood is one.
