I've got a Glock 21 and I would really like to suppress it. I know suppressors are legal in AZ, so I've got that covered. This is where I fall into the unknown. Correct me if these assumptions are incorrect.
1. I need to get an ATF tax stamp ($200 or so) and some various other paperwork. What paperwork do I need?
2. The suppressor. I want to get a Gemtech Blackside.
3. Extended threaded barrel. Will be had from LoneWolfDist. Says they're threaded especially for Gemtech suppressors.
4. Ammunition. I hear subsonic is the way to go, for obvious reasons. Do you have to use ball ammo or can hollow point be used?
There's another question I'm not 100% on. Do hollow points expand upon leaving the barrel or do they expand when they hit their target?
Anyway, all help would be appreciated. Thanks much.
It takes impact to expand a HP bullet. SImply traveling through the air won't make it expand,,to answer your question.
Ball ammo would be fine with sub ammo. Regardless or what caliber,,or type of handgun ammo you use. Shot placement IS the most important thing to remember.
Regarding your can of choice,,,,Gemtech is an excellent company. I have 1 Gemtech can and 2 SRT cans.
You will find yourself waiting much longer for your can to arrive at your Cl 3 than some other companies. But,,my last can was cleared 3 weeks ago. From the day I dropped my packet in the mail to a call from my Cl 3 saying my Form 4 was back was only 50 days.
That beats the hell out of 4-6 months IMO.
