It will be OK to hunt with a silencer in GA. About time.

    Are you talking about fully suppressed firearms ......ie subsonic loads in suppressed rifles , or suppressed standard loads to cut down the noise.?
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Talking about a silencer. Which prior to July 1, has been illegal for hunting in GA, regardless of MV. I use subsonics in my rifles, but until the 1st, couldn't hunt with it except hogs. Not that I hunt, but it's good to be able to pop a squirrel without inserting ear plugs.

    Good deal....It's been legal in KS for a year as of the first. This year, as of the first "Must Certify" goes into effect in KS...no longer can the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in a municipality or County refuse to sign a Form 4 because of his or her personal beliefs...

    Oh, Mr. Game Warden. I hope you can help me. I've been told I could shoot wabbits and goats and pigeons and mongooses and dirty skunks and ducks. Could you tell me what season it weawwy is?

    My idea of a warning shot is when the 2nd bad guy watches his 1st buddy go down....

    Mine didn't take a year, about six months each IIRC, maybe less on the later ones. But now that it's legal to hunt with one in GA, the applications are going to rise as will the price of suppressors.

    Well, they're processing a lot of applications. I knew this when I applied so I wasn't at all disappointed. Plus it took a while to build the suppressors. All my suppressors were made in GA, but that was a while back. I don't know that they can process the paperwork until the suppressor as built and has a serial number, but I don't remember if that's so.

    Alabama just made it legal too. Not sure of the effective date.
