I found out a couple years ago that you can use suppressors legally in PA. You just have to make sure you have your permit it for it on you if you get checked by the Game Commission.

Re: Wyoming passes the use of suppressors for hunting

Yea there's been a few game wardens in southern Pa that didn't get the memo that its legal to hunt with suppressors in pa., They had my dealer handcuffed an sitting in the back of his car till the state police showed up to tell the warden that its legal . What a fiascal that day...

I've heard they were looking at it, hadn't heard where the bill was at.
So now I have a couple of questions. Do suppressors affect accuracy and if not, where are some good places to buy them?
Do the Feds keep a list of who has them? Or why do you need a permit?

Re: Wyoming passes the use of suppressors for hunting

Supressors require a class 2 or 3 firearms permit. You have to pay a $200 "to the government so I can own something they want control over tax" for an FBI background check. Takes up to 6 months to get approved. As far as accuracy, the quality of the new cans and designs are great. If anything they improve the accuracy and manage recoil as good or better than some muzzle breaks. They can be a little expensive, but worth it. All said and done, your looking between $600-$1000 for a can and the permit. If and when I can ever afford one, I am definitely going that route.

Spend the extra money and go with an alloy can, might not seem like much weight difference, but when it's 2ft in front of you it makes a big difference.
