I've been reading that now in MI (where I live) it is legal to own a silencer / suppressor. Hearing protection is a major consideration for me, and so, my interest has inceased. I have a question on the cost involved.
I believe there is a $200 transfer tax, are there any other permits, fees, taxes, etc?
I assume a threaded barrel would be required ($120 to $150).
Then the purchase of a suppressor. I don't have a solid understanding of brands or shops to consider. Is the $750 to $1000 range correct? Anyone share some ideas on what to buy.
Then lastly, would anyone consider a suppressor for home SD. I think if used in SD, it might be like having a barrel with smile and wait for flash printed on the end of your barrel. It would save ob hearing, as you would be shooting indoors, however in a SD situation, added length would be a disadvantage, and more urgent considerations than hearing. Suppressor use comes down to hearing protection when practicing.
Will do a search on the site, but would not mind reading some current opinions. Thank you in advance.
