I've just come back from New Zealand and many of their rifles are suppressed. Even the kids on smallbore ranges have suppressed means they dont have hearing damage and can hear range commands clearly. Safety First!
We in Western Australia have politicians with..... (I cant say it here) for brains and owning a suppressor will result in the loss of all your firearms and possibly a gaol sentence.
Because "silencers are only for gangsters".
Load of twaddle!
If a gang member is going to shoot a rival he does't go down to the nearest gunstore and buy a suppressor and have it fitted leaving a papertrail, he goes to the laundry cupboard and finds a detergent bottle that fits and with (I shant explain here for legal reasons) a couple of mods uses that then takes it off and puts it in the fire.
