You don't need paperwork to go across state lines unless you have a SBR or machine-gun. Silencers don't need additional forms like SBR's,etc.

Suppressors are legal and I would hunt with one, just don't own one.

Not legal here in Wyoming and I hope it stays that way. When people are blazing away, especially some of the idiots around here, I like knowing where the shooting is coming from...

Re: Hunting with a suppressors (aka-silencer) question?

I am in the process of getting approval from BATF for my first suppressor. I plan on using it for biggame hunting in Texas, Co, NM and hopefully Wyoming. I am doing this for the sole purpose of salvaging what is left of my hearing. Between serving with the U.S. Army mechanized infantry and many years of hunting with shotgun and rifle my ears have taken a beating. I think I am at the point that if I cannot shoot with a suppressor (along with other ear protection) I will not hunt in that state.

My rifles are fitted with silencers, and I'm in the process of looking for silencers for my shotguns too.
One of my friends has a Hushpower fitted to his s/a Bennelli 12gauge, and it is a real pleasure to use.
