I think the whole NFA process is garbage and indicative of typical government ineptitude. But, this is also my fault (-ish). I bought this suppressor two years ago. But I dragged my feet on the paperwork because I was counting on hearing protection act to come through. With that failure, one year ago in June, I did the paperwork for a Form 4 Trust, did the fingerprints, etc. and waited 11 months. I just got notified today that it was done. How in this day and age of computers does reviewing a form take 12 months? Background checks take _minutes_, and if there's an issue when buying a firearm, you still get to pick it up after three days. The fact that very few people get questions asked about their trust means it's really a rubber-stamp after the background check. It's just an intentional- or ineptitude-based delay. And the final rant- the patent for the automobile muffler was granted in 1897, the same technology was used for the patent for the suppressor, granted in 1909. The fact that I'm required to have a car muffler, and prevented from having a firearm 'muffler' is ridiculous. The same stupid reasoning of 'prevent the to prevent crime' is BS- should we require cars to have open tailpipes to help catch bad guys driving away from a bank heist? No, the societal impacts of noise pollution are too great for this minor case for its use. I am upset that when I hunt with my son, he's going to have to use a firearm, that if he takes a shot at a deer, would have an OHSA violation because the sound level is damaging to hearing. For fun: here's the not-the-same as the monocore or bafflestack diagram from 1909 that this new suppressor is. It is a far different design.
