after screwing around for to many years I finally pulled the trigger and went to Silencer Central in Sioux Falls SD and paid for a silencer, so now the wait begins and at least I don't have to wait for them to order it in as they had it in stock. Banish 30. but what I do not understand is why can I build a silencer and have a stamp in hand in less than 30 days but to buy one already built from a company it takes 7-9 months does not make sense.

Silencer Central is awesome to work with...my Varminter 4.0 (now called the Banish 30) is a fantastic suppressor. Hopefully your stamp will come back faster than mine did--51 weeks about a year and a half ago. I'm planning to buy a Banish 45 for my handguns and pistol caliber carbines. You'll love the Banish!

I did that. I had a pistol I bought just to put a suppressor on it and still waited 2 years to get the ball rolling. Meh, that's about my speed.

You'll be hard pressed to complain about having a .30 cal rifle suppressor as you can use it on that caliber and down (various cartridges may exceed the manufacturer's stated limits, check carefully).

The first one is the worst one. After you get that one it becomes less painful to wait. Recoil reduction (think: big brake) and noise reduction (not waking the whole county up when you shoot, especially at night) are noteworthy.

As for F4 vs F1...who knows? Maybe a different queue for F4 vs F1...I imagine far more F4 applications than F1 applications. Plus, I think F1 are still available online but F4 are still all paper...if my information is accurate to the current state of affairs.

SilencerShop (IIRC) has kiosks in quite a few stores. You can do fingerprints and pics right there and the stuff is saved for other applications. That helps to take some of the "sting" out of getting more suppressors. I started with 3 (.30 cal rifle, .45 cal pistol, .22LR) but have 7 or 8 now in total. With one in hand, as I mentioned, the wait is less painful so easier to buy the stuff, not dreading the wait.
