Pilot2 on a factory threaded Ruger MkIII 22/45

The Ruger factory threaded MkIII 22/45 pistols are quickly becoming one of my personal favorite .22lr hosts.

Here is a picture from our Facebook page of this pistol set up with a Pilot2 silencer.

Great combination!!

AZ passes hunting with Silencers

In addition to Texas, Arizona passed hunting with Silencers yesterday as well.

From the NRA/ILA:

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer Signs Law Authorizing Use of Suppressors for All Hunting

Posted on March 29, 2012

Today, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed House Bill 2728 into law. This important hunting bill will allow hunters in Arizona to use lawfully-possessed suppressors (also referred to as silencers) on firearms for hunting. HB 2728 passed in the state House on February 28 by a 42 to 14 vote and in the state Senate on Tuesday by a 20 to 9 vote.

Enactment of HB 2728, introduced by state Representative David Gowan (R-30), will provide hunters the option to use legally-owned sound suppressors while hunting game. Currently, more than half of the states across the country allow hunters to use suppressors while hunting and two other states (Georgia and Oklahoma) are currently considering similar legislation to allow their use, such as Texas which just adopted a new rule. It’s time that hunters in Arizona are able to enjoy the same opportunities available to sportsmen in more than half of the country. For more information on firearms and suppressors, click here.

Noise complaints are being used more frequently as an excuse to close shooting ranges, informal shooting areas, and hunting lands throughout the country. Increased use of suppressors will help to eliminate many of these complaints and protect hunting and shooting areas well into the future.

In order to acquire a suppressor, a purchaser must submit the appropriate paperwork to the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives where long wait times for approval are unfortunately common (four to six months). Also, purchasers must undergo a background check by the FBI, find a licensed dealer authorized to conduct the transaction and pay a one-time $200 tax for each device. While suppressors do not eliminate the sound of a firearm, they do reduce the muzzle report in a manner similar to the way that a muffler reduces exhaust noise from a vehicle. The benefits associated with suppressor use include increased accuracy due to reduced recoil and muzzle blast, protection from hearing damage and reduced noise pollution.

Thank you to Governor Brewer for signing HB 2728 into law and to the legislators who voted for its passage. Thank you also to the NRA members who contacted their state Senators and Representatives. Please e-mail Governor Jan Brewer and thank her for signing HB 2728 into law.

Texas is good to go

Texas: Use of Lawfully-Owned Suppressors While Hunting Legalized in the Lone Star State

Thank You to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission and NRA Members!

Today, after hearing your support for this NRA-backed common sense hunting reform, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission voted unanimously to legalize suppressor use while hunting. The benefits associated with suppressor use include increased accuracy due to reduced recoil and muzzle blast, protection from hearing damage and reduced noise pollution.

Prior to the adoption of this rule, lawfully-possessed suppressors were permitted for all other shooting activities besides hunting game animals, including the taking of nuisance species. The adoption of this common sense proposal by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department helps in other states where the NRA is involved with similar pro-hunting measures. Legislatures in Oklahoma and Georgia are currently considering similar measures and Arizona has recently passed one which would enhance hunting opportunities because of the many benefits that suppressors provide.

The NRA strongly supported this regulation change to allow for the use of lawfully-owned suppressors for hunting in Texas. There is an incredible amount of misinformation on what suppressors do and how they may be acquired. Suppressors are not “silencers,” as depicted in typical Hollywood action films. While suppressors do not eliminate the sound of a firearm, they do reduce the muzzle report in a manner similar to the way that a muffler reduces exhaust noise from a vehicle.

Noise complaints are being used more frequently as an excuse to close shooting ranges, informal shooting areas, and hunting lands throughout the country. Increased use of suppressors will help to eliminate many of these complaints and protect hunting and shooting areas well into the future.

Thank you to the NRA/ILA for the update

Arizona Senate to Vote on Pro-Hunting Bill Today

Posted on March 27, 2012

An important pro-hunting bill will be on third reading this afternoon in the Arizona Senate. House Bill 2728, introduced by state Representative David Gowan (R-30), would allow hunters in Arizona to use lawfully-possessed suppressors (also referred to as silencers) on firearms for hunting. HB 2728 has already passed in the House by a 42 to 14 vote on February 28. Passage in the state Senate is the final legislative hurdle to be cleared before going to Governor Jan Brewer for her approval.

Enactment of HB 2728, would give hunters the option to use lawfully owned sound suppressors while hunting game. Currently, more than half of the states across the country allow hunters to use suppressors while hunting and three other states (Oklahoma, Georgia and Texas) are currently considering similar legislation or are changing their hunting regulations to allow their use. It’s time that hunters in Arizona are able to enjoy the same opportunities available to residents in more than half of the country. For more information on firearms and suppressors, click here.

Noise complaints are being used more frequently as an excuse to close shooting ranges, informal shooting areas, and hunting lands throughout the country. Increased use of suppressors will help to eliminate many of these complaints and protect hunting and shooting areas well into the future.

While suppressors do not eliminate the sound of a firearm, they do reduce the muzzle report in a manner similar to the way that a muffler reduces exhaust noise from a vehicle. The benefits associated with suppressor use include increased accuracy due to reduced recoil and muzzle blast, protection from hearing damage and reduced noise pollution.

Please contact your state Senator NOW and respectfully urge him or her to support HB 2728.

Georgia hunting update – need your help!

Georgia: NRA Backed Hunting Reform Bill
Needs Your Immediate Help

Last week, excellent testimony from industry professionals, individual citizens and elected officials was given in support of Senate Bill 301 in the Georgia House Game, Fish and Parks Committee. Unfortunately, SB 301 has not yet been scheduled for another committee hearing and time is running short in this legislative session. If SB 301 is not voted on soon, it cannot be considered on the House floor. SB 301 passed in the state Senate by an overwhelming 48 to 5 vote on January 31.

SB 301 would allow hunters in Georgia to use lawfully-possessed suppressors (also referred to as silencers) on firearms for hunting.

Your state Representative, Jon Burns (R-157), serves as Chairman of the House Game, Fish and Parks Committee. Please contact him TODAY and respectfully urge him to schedule a hearing for and support SB 301 before time runs out! All Georgians are counting on your immediate action. Contact information for Chairman Burns can be found below.
