My question is WHY? The P3AT is designed for ease in concealment and personal defense. The addition of a silencer will only negate the concealment feature, and the noise from an unsilenced weapon can be to your advantage. So why would you want a silencer? It doesn't seem reasonable as to why someone who is legally licensed to carry concealed would want or need a silencer for legal personal defense actions.!9MiL said:I'm interested in suppressing my p3at one day and was looking for opinions. Has anyone had any experience with that sort of thing, is it a realistic idea, would the gun cycle right with the extra weight on the barrel, is there enough metal to get a good thread job? Also I have in mind to use a regular 9mm silencer. I would appreciate any answers or opinions or advice very much.also would you need an extended barrel?

Don’t tell me I need to do my homework. I am well aware of what it takes to purchase a NFA weapon like a silencer and what it takes to "make" an NFA weapon. How do I know? I've done both. Neither require a "license." Neither are all that complicated. Both can be done perfectly legally. And the cost is less than the cost of a P3AT.MTakas said:[quote author=Fat_Rat link=1297807200/0#8 date=1298332901] Silencers however are not legal without a license, and in that case your second amendment rights are not being violated. You legally can't have it in the first place so how do you consider your being denied your rights. You need to do your homework before stating that it is perfectly legal to have a silencer. Legal if you go through the federal permit process, but the process for obtaining and owning a silencer is far more expensive than the cost of a P3AT. If you are making one yourself then that is illegal, and it is actions like that which have helped erode the second amendment. Besides, show me in the second amendment where it states "the right to bear silencers". If you want to be a rersponsible gun owner, do it legally!
CJ, you are correct. It is pointless to continue a battle of wits with an unarmed person. I will respect your request. This was in no way intended to be annoying to any of the other members of this forum, and if it was my apologies.CJP32 said:If you two want to fight over the legal issues of owning a suppressor maybe you should start your own thread. The huge quotes of quotes of quotes are really getting annoying.
