Default RE: Hunt with silencer/suppressor

Don't get me wrong, I'm not against using suppressors for hunting/shooting if they are legal - I'm just saying that you have to jump through some hoops and pay some $$$ to use them, and being a very practical person, I don't see that the advantages outweight the costs in most situations.

On the other hand, if money is not an object, using a suppressor (especially on a centerfire pistol, which has a very loud muzzle blast) might not be a bad idea, especially if you're looking at preventing hearing damage and making the gun easier to shoot. But any supersonic bullet is not going to be "silenced", only made quieter....
