There's a lot of different ways to make your own suppressors, depending on what you need it for. It would probably be a lot less trouble and expense, and you get to do it to your own specifications. Try several different types of pipes, washers, etc and you'll get the idea.QUOTE]
Please do not put anything on the end of you weapon which could even remotly be considered a sound suppressor by the BATF, (even a plastic soda bottle is considered one by the ATF). Doing so and getting caught could mean an extended stay at ClubFed and the loss of a lot of cash. Depending on your state, (I haven't looked up Texas) it is legal to own and use a suppressor you just have to purchase it from a Class III dealer or a manufacturer such as myself in your home state, pay the required $200 tax to the Federal Gov, be approved by the ATF and your on your way. Contrary to movie and TV lore you can't suppress a revolver and unless you use a subsonic round you will still hear the sonic-boom of the round going down range. They are quite a lot of fun to use not only do they help keep your hearing intact, the folks who live around you if you shoot at home will thank you. If you go to a range to shoot folks are always wowed at the sight of one as most people don't realize you can legally own one. I have numerious suppressors for SMG's and handguns that I own, but the best time I can have is sitting out back with a brick of 22LR's and my suppressed Walther P-22 and just plinking. Here is a link to the BATF where you can get answers and download the NFA rules handbook. Hope this helps, Happy shooting!
