In Oklahoma Hunting With Suppressors Legal Nov. 1 2012

On November 1 2012, a new law will go into effect granting hunters in the state of Oklahoma the right to use legally owned suppressors while hunting all game animals.

With the help of ASA lobbyists, Senate Bill 1743 was signed into law by Governor Mary Fallin on May 25.

The passage of the new law made Oklahoma the third state in 2012 to legalize suppressor use while hunting. Earlier in 2012, similar measures were also passed in Texas and Arizona.

    I love my guns, but I don’t like the use of SUPPRESORS! For hunting? This, I feel is a bad law. Jeez, everybody wants to become a sniper? I use my guns scrictly for target, and self defense, and I don’t feel that Suppresion is necessary. in any form for civilian use, unless you’re a wannabe JAMES BOND, or a military sniper.

      I can see it for shooting in certain areas where the noise might upset people and it would help as far as damaging your hearing. I agree that some people might think that they’re James Bond or somebody but I think that most people who would go through all the ritual to own a suppressor are probably going to be more responsible than that.
