Why are over the barrel suppressors not very popular? I hardly see anyone talking about them or using them. Seem like a good option to keep the overall rifle length down.
Because I would like to know if there is a big reason I shouldn't have one as one of my next suppressors. I am currently running a elite iron 338 suppressor that doesn't seem to be too popular, but only reason I could find was due to the weight.Why worry if it's popular or not, if it serves your purpose, needs, or wants, I say go for it and have fun with it.
The only reason I don't own any cans is 1) money, 2) money, 3) money, and 4) cost of threading all of my rifles.
Had I anticipated the HPA being popular, and POSSIBLY passing congress (which it has yet to do thanks to the left and the gov't perpetuating all these horrendous false flag shootings) I would have had them threaded when I had them built. Which means i would have been WAY ahead of the game (for most of my rifles) for when it DOES pass (I see this in the distant future). But unfortunately, my clairvoyance at the time did not show me this.
2 years? i filed in february of 13 (right after sandy hook during the panic) and it only took a year to get my can
Same here. Clean background, held my CCW since i was 21 (FBI background check, same as for NFA items)... Why in the hell do I need to wait nearly a year for something I ALREADY know that I can own?haha, gotcha.
i've heard the argument that you shouldnt wait on the HPA. b/c once it passes, there's going to be a rush on suppressors and you wont be able to find them. then the price will likely go up once you dont have to pay for the stamp. it's absurd that you cannot walk into a gun store and buy one. i have never been arrested, no criminal record, i should be able to buy what i **** well please

Another stupid law is the SBR law... A 10.5" AR-15 is still HUGE, and nearly impossible to conceal. But yet, you can go buy a handgun, walk out the door, stuff it in your pants concealed, and take it home immediately... I'm not saying that they should restrict handguns, just saying that when you compare that 85% of shootings and crimes happen with handguns, versus less than 10% with rifles, it's just a stupid law to restrict barrel length on any weapon. Hell, even a 7" AR15 pistol is huge comparatively.
