Now legal to hunt with suppressors in Texas

Post by blueorison » 29 Mar 2012, 09:12

Just announced by SilencerCo.

This is great for a few reasons, among them; communications between hunters, less tunnel vision without muffs (if you use muffs), game can't tell where the shot came from, you can hear footsteps more clearly, etc. etc.
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.

Sweet, wish other states would follow suit. Maybe they will if this proves to be good idea?
Contrary to popular belief, you CAN fix stupid - it's just illegal.

Don't suppressors have more in common with NFA stuff than FiveseveNs? :)

AZ should follow shortly (Assuming the Governor signs the bill on her desk).

Along similar lines, the bill removing magazine capacity limit while hunting was recently signed. :)

Update:
HB 2728, which would allow the use of sound suppressors when hunting, was signed by Governor Brewer on March 29th.

HB 2640 was signed by the Governor on March 21st. This new law prohibits the Game and Fish Commission from limiting magazine capacity on any authorized firearm regulated by the Commission.

HB 2457, was signed by the Governor on April 10th and will allow possession of an otherwise “prohibited” weapon (i.e., for self-defense) while hunting. This legislation will go into effect 90 days after the legislature adjourns.

That's AWESOME!!!!! Thanks for the great news and I now can't wait to go hunting and the guy owning the property I lease not freaking out because one of my silencers on his property during deer season. He was afraid the warden would take his property if I got 'caught' on his property with a silencer. He is a very old and very nice man.

Change Illinois to Massachusetts and I'm right there with you.
