Suppressors in Georgia

Waiting for P-07 DUTY with threaded barrel. 

Georgia: Pro-Hunting Bill Passes Unanimously in Senate Committee!

Yesterday, NRA-backed Senate Bill 301 passed unanimously in the state Senate Natural Resources & the Environment Committee!  This bill now goes to the Senate floor.

SB 301, introduced by state Senator John Bulloch (R-11), would allow Georgians to use lawfully-possessed suppressors (also referred to as silencers) on firearms for hunting.  Currently, Georgia law permits the use of suppressors for all shooting activities except for the taking of game.  Enactment of SB 301 would ensure that hunting is treated the same way as other shooting activities with respect to the use of suppressors, and would allow hunters to reap the many benefits suppressor use provides.

While suppressors/silencers do not eliminate the sound of a firearm, they do reduce the muzzle report of a firearm much in the same way that a muffler reduces exhaust noise from a car or truck.  There are many benefits associated with suppressor/silencer use: (1) increase accuracy, (2) makes shooting more enjoyable by lessening felt recoil and reducing muzzle blast, (3) protects shooters’ hearing and (4) helps reduce noise pollution.

Noise complaints are being used more frequently as an excuse to close shooting ranges, informal shooting areas, and hunting lands throughout the country.  Increased use of suppressors will help to eliminate many of these complaints and protect hunting and shooting areas well into the future.  For more information on firearms and suppressors, click here.

Still waiting >:(

However, a Model 455 with a YHM Phantom and a Model 550 in 308 Win with an AAC Cyclone would cover just about all your mammal hunting in the state.

Yes, AZ has the same bill introduced, along with one to remove the magazine limit from hunting. Would be nice to use my vz-58 for pig, but there are no 5 round magazines in the US, not one. if both pass, I'd get threaded for a suppressor, (AZ has a lot of good suppressor builders), and go hunting with that full 20 round mag an a 'can. :)
Good luck to you in GA!
