    Awesome they got caught but got furious reading the article this morning.

    OMG??!! They had suppressors???!!! And WTF is a silent round and where do I buy them??? Oh and I must be just as EVIL because I too have a brass catcher.

    So called 'journalists'

    Hopefully they give them a good fine and some jail time.

    300 blackout or whatever it is called?

    You'd better hand yourself in for having an evil brass catcher to save your brass. I'll meet you there as I have evil suppressors to save my ears.

    Yeah that would be my guess. Even subsonic rounds make noise though. Reporters need to pull their heads in a bit. I know it will never happen, but still.

    I better go drag myself off to the things you hate thread for a whinge.

    Poachers caught!

    Friggin locals? Ha, hope they get screwed. Shooting pet deer and being found out will do more damage to their reputations here on the coast than any fine or jail term.
    Can't wait till they are named and shamed.

    Yep, agree that it's awesome they got caught but the article makes me want to punch the media in the face. (So no different from any other day, really.)

    I'd say most hunters have over 1,000 rounds at home? And I pick up my brass. Does that make me a baddy too?

    Ye gods, I have several supressors AND subsonic ammo in at least 3 different calibers

    Should I just go hand myself in ? At least there are no E-meow guns here, so safe on that score

    I'll be in the queue behind you and raise you 15k in primers and about 8k .45 bullets (give or take a few),

    To be fair they are probably just repeating what they were told by the police
