    I'd love a .30 can. I've got load data for some .30-30 subsonics using 700-X pistol/shotgun powder that would probably be great fun with a suppressed 336.

    Imagine that. No good starving people attempting to feed themselves. Can't they be more like good liberals and compare us to other countries like Haiti where them feed their families dirt baked into cakes? They should just shoot people who's wallet has less than $100 at any given time and kill unwanted children who might possibly represent a grocery hardship. Oh, wait... got that one covered.

    There is not one person I would not take hunting......there are a few that would not make it back though.

    Yeah, and we're still waiting for the prices on things like .22LR and other types of ammo to go down after the recent past, "moments of anti-gun hysteria" perpetrated by the Obama/Clinton gun ban 'juggernaut', these last 8 years.

    I can't imagine suppressors and/or silencers will be available at "reasonable" prices. $800 for a 'can', plus a $200 tax stamp is way out of reach for too many average citizens, as it is.

    I don't see it happening, and why should they - if they can keep the prices high, there's always someone willing to pay it.

    We are slowly being priced out of our once classic American traditions of the hunting and shooting sports. Even reloading is becoming prohibitive, in certain circumstances - high cost of bulk powder and reloading components are way out of line.

    These shooting sports have become a "rich man's" game, these days.

    I've shot several of them and they're fun and easy on the ears but the stories of complying with and jumping through federal hoops, makes it unattractive.

    It's ironic that, is it Norway and/or Sweden?, where you can walk into a store, buy a suppressor, and walk out with one, same day; do rules, no background checks, no waiting periods, no hoops. And we are supposed to have Constitutional and 2A Rights and supposed to be a free and open country.

    What a farce.

    Yeah,I can walk into the Auto zone and purchase a muffler to quiet down my offending car,but cant purchase a suppressor to quiet my rifle to protect my hearing.
    Even if the HPA passes it wont matter in this commie state.
    I believe its New Zealand that one can walk into the hardware store and buy a suppressor no questions ask.

    Don't be such a pessimist. For the 1st time in 30 years we have a President and Congress who adhere to the same principles and beliefs as most responsible Americans. Give it some time for actions to take effect!

    I'll be happy to consider the stamp cost a donation if it would help the bill pass. Shooting suppressed just makes sense. Anyone that shoots should support suppressed. Hearing loss while shooting is avoidable and easily mitigated with the existing technology. I'll still use muffs/plugs but why not make it easier to include suppressors as an option?
