I received this email a few minutes ago;

Dear MSSA Friends,

MSSA's bill, HB 174, to repeal an archaic, Prohibition-era law making
it illegal to possess a firearm suppressor "in the field or forest"
will soon be before the Senate Judiciary committee.

When I visited with Committee member Senator Jim Shockley about this,
he found it unimportant because he believes hardly anyone in Montana
owns suppressors. I told Jim that I know many people who own
suppressors, but he didn't believe me.

So, I need your help. If you own a suppressor, or if you know one or
more people who own and use suppressors, please send Senator Shockley
an email an tell him so. You don't need to give the names of your
friends who own suppressors. Just tell Jim that you have X number of
friends who legally own and use Y number of suppressors.

Send to Jim at: "Jim Shockley" <gooseno4@yahoo.com> Please copy me
on your emails to Jim <mssa@mtssa.org>.

Thanks loads for your help.

Gary Marbut, president
Montana Shooting Sports Association

I guess he's never heard of Elite Iron?

It's discomforting that "we" have government representatives that don't even know who "we" are!

hmm I don't own one but I suppose it wouldn't hurt if I drop a line saying i'm interested in getting a surpressor or 2 and would love to have the option to use them in field if i do make a purchase.

I'm a little late to the party, but I just sent an email asking Senator Shockley for his support. Hopefully the hearings that are scheduled for tomorrow go well. Thanks for the heads up!
