    I was just wondering what type of a permit you need to apply for? cost of permit? ect. i would be thinking about putting one most likely on a p22.

    contact a dealer who handles cans. he will give you a form 4. take the form 4 and fill it out, including: have your chief LEO sign it, get your fingerprints, and submit the form 4 to the ATF, along with a $200 check. it takes about a month to get the paperwork back. then take your new tax stamp to your dealer and pick up your new silencer. it's that simple.

    if your CLEO won't sign, you can create a LLC and skip that step. but that is much more complicated to explain and i am not knowledgeable enough to even try.

    EDITED to add, you must also include a passport photo of yourself along with the forms.
