    After almost seven months I picked it up today:banana:

    Actually, he said my stamp came back on Nov. 24th but they have been so busy that they forgot to call me.....which I understand.

    Anyway, here she is, home at last!

    If you guys have any tips, tricks, advice or questions, please feel free to share them....THANKS!

    Here is the breakdown of how long it took from date of check clearing my bank to stamping the approval date on my Form 4:

    169 DAYS
    24.1428 WEEKS
    5.5757 MONTHS


    Not too bad, I was told it would be longer.

    Question....

    Is it safe to test fire it into a bucket of sand or water? I want to try it but can't get to the range until next weekend. Thoughts?


    Thanks,

    Is that a pp22 ? If so would you compare it silenced to CCI cb unsilenced?

    Congrats!

    Well worth the wait, wasn't it? I wish I owned a dozen .22 suppressors so I wouldn't have to keep switching them out. :)

    My paperwork has been at the ATF since September. Guess I'll wait another 3-4 months.

    Congrats. I waded in with an AAC Pilot in .22 for mine.

    Congrats, man! Enjoy shooting it...I am in the fence about getting some NFA gear. I'll be waiting to see what happens in the next few months, then I'll be adding some goodies to the collection if they aren't outlawed...

    For my education and probably others, is that suppressor restricted to a certain class of guns i.e., in your case rimfires or could it be attached to a .223 for example and if so would its life expectancy be affected? Thanks, Don

    Congrats! My SDN-6 should be out on good behavior here in the next month. My 9" .300 Blackout and my Remington 700 have been waiting anxiously for a while. Like others have said... those stamps tend to multiply.
