Exactly what are the laws concerning suppressors in Pennsylvania? Thanks in advance all...

They are legal to have, you can hunt with them,

You can hunt with a suppressor? I heard it was illegal.

You heard wrong.

I keep a copy of a letter from the PGC in my hunting license holder stating that there is nothing saying you can't use a suppressor while hunting in PA.

ETA: I've been hunting squirrels suppressed for years, and hope to be hunting deer suppressed this coming season.
Gotta enjoy the little things.

I've got a letter written by the game commission saying that it is in fact legal to hunt with them in Pa. If you write them, they will tell you the same. I'll see if I can find it, I used to have it saved but I moved jobs, not sure I still have it on my laptop.

I have a friend that works for the game commission. I will have him give me something to keep with me in case something ever happens.

If you find it please post it up. I wouldn't mind getting a letter.

Good news.

I asked because I just wanted to know the legality of suppresors in our fine state (and that's the answer I was hoping for).

Thanks HTF!!
