What are the laws for the suppressor in NC and what is it mounted on?

I saw a vid on Youtube where a guy was firing a two identical semi-autos, one suppressed and one not...boom, click-thump, boom, click-thump. It was really cool to watch and probably a hellava lot more fun to shoot.

nc has some funny suppressor laws but a good class three dealer can get you around most of them that is a SWR specter it is on a ruger 22 with a pac-lite upper on it i also have a matching ruger 10-22 rifle with the same flutted barrel. as for sound... its all in how much you want to spend i bought the best money could buy. it has the highest noise reduction of any .22 suppressor out there. but your right the bullet hitting the target makes more noise then the gun firing.

Deer, ducks and hogs. Jeeps down right now, but hope to get it together quick. Told the boy it was gonna be the primary huntin vehicle.
Love to hog hunt. I hunt'em from the deer stand at night. Got lights that shine on the feeder and I pick the one I want out of the group. Use the 7mm-08 with 140 Nosler ballistic tip. Working up a load with different powders now.
Duck huntin would be next, but we are 50 inches below the rainfall we had last year at this time. Ducks love water. No water, no ducks.
Deer hunting is OK. put the .270 w/130 ballistic tips to them. My Savage is UGLY but very, very accurate. Best group at 100 was less than a 1/4 inch. Love the caliber and gun.
Coyotes are FUN FUN!. 22-250 with 45 grain winchester white box and I can roll one on out there. Thrilling to hunt something that can hunt you.

I only really hunt paper. I have hunted before, but not on a regular basis. For killing paper my favorites are; my XD 9mm SC (also my CCW), my Yugo underfolder AK, or my plane-Jane AR.

Loved hunting until I moved to Colorado compared to Texas it is a real PITA. Texas was Whitetail, Turkey and year round hogs. Up here elk, speed goats, mulies and someday I might have enough points for Moose.

.260, .270, 7 rem mag
.50 & .54 ball shooters

I hunt, whitetail, duck, canadian geese, turkey, pheasant, rabbit, and occasionally dove. I've got a Remington 30-06 for deer, a 12 gauge duck, geese, turkey, and pheasant, a .22 for the rabbit, and i use a 16 guage for dove(i think) the only gun that is technically mine is the 30-06, passed down from my grandpa.

Jody, was that 7MM in a 7X57?

I am pretty much into target shooting. I belong to a rifle club and shoot in some CMP matches. I have a couple of M1 Garands that I use. I'm negotiating to buy a M1917 that I could use as well.

I hunt mostly whitetail, but I spend alot of time riding the back roads hunting partridge, too. All with the help of my trusty Jeeps (though I perfer to use my CJ). I use a Ruger M77 in .260 for deer hunting, and a Ruger O/U Red Label 20 GA. for partidge hunting and competetive skeet shooting. I reload all my shotgun shells, but I perfer to buy new rounds for my rifle.

Love to hunt, was a whitetail, rabbit and dove guy, but now have no where to hunt since I moved away from the farm, have no where to shoot except the local indoor range, which is a decent 100y indoor, but not a fan of indoor ranges. My man room is now a nursery and all reloading equip is in Rubbermaid totes.......
so most play money goes to the jeep now.

My favorites have to be a competition grade AR I built from the ground up, a Swiss k31, my Ruger Blackhawk and my .40XD, among others

Also had a fishing addiction thrown in there, still get that itch from time to time

M1917 as in the bolt gun? love the placement of the safety on them, actually have one i had made into a 338-06(was already sporterized when i got it, no collectors value)....love the gun but it is darn heavy compared to my Kimber, thinking bout turning it into a 375 or 416 Ruger to make use of some of that weight.....as is though a 6 year old can shoot my hunting loads in a t-shirt comfortably its the top gun

I used to hunt but sence going into gunsmithing 15 years ago with simmons my hunting seasons have become working seasons getting everybody else's firearms repaired so they can go out and enjoy what we all love.
This is my favorite time of year because of this, all the birds around here don't come close enough to me anymore and i am old,fat and slow.
I really love to hear my customers hunting stories when they come back in, it's like i was still out there so it is fun for me.
20 years i competed in handgun competitions with my now well used glock in stock class and that moved into 1911 stock single stack with some good times.
Good hunting guys, have fun and be safe. Paul.

Here in PA I hunt Whitetail, Squirrels, Black Bear, and when I can find the time, Turkey. Maybe some day I'll go out west and go for a moose or elk, but I'm content for now. I use my grandfathers .308 but also have a real nice Winchester Model 70 30-06 that I'm gonna shoot some. We're just getting started into reloading. I competed all through high school (this is my first year not competing) and I miss it already.

I think the 54 is predecessor to the 70, correct?
look at goats in Wyoming, they have more of them than everyone else combined.....as much as i like Montana i have to concede defeat there know quite a few guys from back east that have done DIY public land goat hunts in Wyoming and been very successful..


and yes the 54 is the predecessor to the 70
