What are these suppressors you are speaking of?

Short answer: You can have a suppressor. Just don't get caught with it.

When is Len gonna deputize us???

Make sure you get one that will work with your short-barreled shotgun, which is also totally legal here...

Don't forget to get one for each of your revolvers too! Hey I've seen them in the movies, they must work great!

I think you should post about this some more.

Aguila .22-SSS. I think the SSS stands for Shoot, Shovel, and Shut-up, but I'm not positive...

Just make sure you get one that is long enough, then all you have to do is pin it and you should be good to go!

You can get a "Metro Barrel" for you shotguns. The metro barrel is a 30" barrel made by Hastings that acts a 12ga suppressor. This is approved by the BATF and it is not a suppressor like one for a rifle or handgun. But it does quite the gun. Plus Federal makes 12 gauge Sub-Sonic ammo.

I have one for the Benelli.

Not a bad item if you want to hunt or shoot trap without pissing off your neighbors.

30"? I have an Ithaca witha 30 inch bbl, and it's not quiet. I thought those "metro" ones were more like 60 inches? anything over 20" is too long IMO

It is a barrel extention, screws into the choke and is 30" added onto however long your current barrel is. A guy here in MN came up with the idea, aleast that is what I read in Feild and Stream a while ago.

SO it basically turns your shotgun into a breach loading smoothbore with a 50" barrel?

Pretty much. I put the Metro Barrel on my 24" Benelli and it is FREAKING LONG. It does cut down the noise and has less kick.

It looks retarded on the gun, but you can shoot without hearing protection, and the neighbors don't complain as much.

I should bring it to a DE Shotgun class

Yes, I imagine it would be hard to go to position "Sul" with a 54" barrel!

Of course, even with Taylor's class you still have to fit the shotgun through the door, first!

It blows my mind that this is not considered a suppressor. Is it because it's designed for duck hunting, and therefore only deserving of a MN liberal's raised eyebrow and sighs of disapproval, instead of the usual screams of fear that scary looking guns produce? How is it that the Brits understand a valid use for suppressors while your average NPR listening, weekend antiquing, "November 2nd" bumper sticker flouting MN liberal jackass can't? How dumb do you have to be to actually believe that a typical gangbanging scrote will go through all the federal requirements and weapon-related research that is required to have a decent legal suppressor setup? These suppressors threads (no pun intended) are starting to depress me.
