    A well organised and sponsored petition was forwarded to the gov last year and got thrown out immediately

    The canadian gov is anally retentive about poaching and criminal access to sound mods

    A court case is the only way now
    Crowd source?

    Given that I hear them in person every weekend at the range, I'm quite sure that I'm not...

    Also, numbers a meter left/right of the muzzle are utterly useless. The numbers at the ear are what matters when you're the shooter. Watch the Military Arms Channel sound tests down range with different suppressors and unsuppressed. Makes no difference down range.

    143.8 at the ear (above hearing safe!)

    143.6 at the ear (above hearing safe!)

    134.0 at the ear with the 22 cal endcap (the anchor brake re-directs a lot of noise back to the shooter - like any brake)

    In person it's a VERY noticeable difference.

    Electing Andrew Scheer will ensure these remain illegal

    Best quote of this whole thread and 100% true unfortunately.

    So frustrating.
    Was hunting in Sweden in November. IPSC shooter showed me the can on his AR with a thirty round mag; at the hunt. All perfectly legal. He did not hunt with it, just wanted to share. Told him, in Canada we would both be charged and arrested. Looked at me like I had two heads. Number of firearms posessed by an individual are limited by the law however. Limits vary; ie. professional hunter versus sport shooter. Just a little perspective.
    Stupidity is its own punishment.
