Re: Under NFA rules, is a garage considered a "silencer"?

And right here is the whole issue: But if you apply logic to the definition.... Thanks for the reference to the US code, that verbage is one of the things I had been reading---and re-reading----and re-re-reading. IMHO, all of us non-USgovt-lawyer-bureaucrat-types don't stand a chance of interpreting...

Re: Under NFA rules, is a garage considered a "silencer"?

Very good point Beware of firing in an enclosed environment. I have been in several indoor ranges, and I understand what you are talking about and agree completely.
