Is it legal to own a silencer?

Can I hunt with a silencer?

It is legal to hunt “non-game” animals and most states have now made it legal to hunt “game” animals with a silencer.

Do I have to get a special license to buy a silencer?

NO!  There are no “special licenses” required to buy/own a silencer.  There is a $200 tax stamp required with each purchase paid directly to the BATFE, and as long as you can check yes to all three boxes under the “legal to own” category….you are Good To Go!
