One man's Osprey collection at the "Silencers are Legal" event.
Stupid lame california. thanks for not caring about my hearing loss but more worried about endangered
common rats in san fransisco
I just bought a gun with a threaded barrel. Then I looked at what it would cost to get a suppressor. I can't believe it costs you $200 just to check if you're allowed to have one. Then you have to pay anywhere from $300 and up for the suppressor itself. I didn't think it was going to be such an expense.
The $200 is a tax. All NFA items require the stamp, suppressors, SBRs, etc...
Yeah, I'm aware of that. Just saying it was more of an expense than I was expecting. The suppressor is going to cast almost twice what the gun cost.
That Tax hasn't been adjusted for inflation. If it was, it would be into the 4-digit range. We should all be so lucky that the ATF hasn't change that fee.
BTW, way cool collection
I'll post more of his collection if you want :)
my heart just skipped a beat
@pidong, yes please...more
And that is a $200 tax stamp for EACH suppressor? So if I want multiple suppressors I would need to apply for each one, each time at $200 a pop isn't it??
@1ibddd you are correct. $200 per NFA item. it's quicker to apply for it if you have a trust instead of applying as an individual, that way you skip some other tedious paperwork. Hopefully they will do away with this tax soon for the silencers at least.
These people are called "stamp collectors"
@arbytoo, that's the first time i've heard it put that way. LOL!
@1ibddd, the good thing is the registered item is the suppressor, so it can go onto any host gun. And it's not registered to any gun.
when this was enacted, $200 was 3 months salary for the average man. I need to get around to setting up a trust.
@quack, if you're anywhere in houston, tx, there's a place called "tactical firearms". they've got the lowest prices on silencers and they take care of the paperwork for free, including setting up the trust.
