    Try This For A Suppressoer

    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    Not much point in it here, really, when we can get normal functional suppressors for pretty cheap. Different story in the US where they're restricted and you have to pay for a $200 tax stamp, then pay for the suppressor on top of that.

    Don't think it'd be any good with open sights. Probably want high rings for the scope and a cheek pad too.

    I made a bloke in Tasmania a few adaptors from 1/2"unf to a female thread to screw coke bottles into...... it worked a treat, considering they aren't allowed suppressors, he's just gotta take a drink hunting with him......
