Re: 300 Whisper questions

Last I had and used sounded like a stapler being used, if fact that's what folks too to calling the gun, the "Staple gun". If used indoors on a hard surface floor the 22RF brass hitting the floor is often louder than the anything else.

There is considerable noise at the receiving end! The "whack", "crack" or "blooop" sounds we are familiar with become more pronounced and are quite loud by comparison to the firearm going off. (Or heaven forbid a round misses or is a pass-through, the "zingggggggg" is loud and lasts seemingly forever.)

Re: 300 Whisper questions

Jordan--you dont keed a "lisence" you just need to go to a lisenced class 3 dealer--loads of them in PA. The one i went to was down philly, because they had the best price, but there are more than you would think in the state.

you order and pay for what you want (223 can = $500+) (308 can = $800) then when the shop gets it they document the serial number and fill out their part of the required paper work.

then they send it to you to fill out:
-reason- i use "collector"
-signature from your county's sheriff
-passport type pics to glue to form (done @ AAA if you are a member)
-fingerprint cards to fill out (local PD)

then just other Biographical info.

then you send the form and fingerprint cards back to the dealer and they send it to the ATf and when you are approved (3-7 months) the dealer will call you and you go fill out a yellow form and pick it up there.


Whew!!--o yea when you send the completed forms back to the dealer you must include a $200 check to the ATF for the required stamp

BTW--you get the paper with your pictures glued on back when you pick up the device (silencer/sawed-off, auto) and you should make copies of it and must always keep a copy with you when using the device.

Re: 300 Whisper questions

hmm, sounds like an interesting future project. How accurate would that be at subsonic velocities, how far is your range on something like that?

Re: 300 Whisper questions

4800 [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] That like two and a half miles. I would not use this at long range, but would be fun none the less.

Re: 300 Whisper questions

Dave,
What do you mean is it done yet? Hell, I ain't got your 300 WSM done yet! Give me a ring at the shop Monday and we work out the details.
