Taking into account as well the fact that most shooters already have differing amounts of hearing loss the sound for each shooter and perception of sound will vary because of all of these variables.

*Responsible Full Auto: Operator uses the Torrent® suppressor on full auto one will cycle through rounds in a rapid salvo rate one round after another as long as the trigger is depressed. It is the operator responsibility to let the weapon cool between every 30 rounds spent in full auto. It would irresponsible of the operator to operate in full auto past 30 rounds without a cool-down as this would lead to weapons system failure and would put the operator and others at risk.
How to purchase a Torrent® Suppressor
First Suppressor vs. Silencer debate. Silencer is the name on the patent and is also a legal term as it is the name used in the National Firearms Act of 1934. Suppressor and silencer are the same, but suppressor is the proper term. The word Silencer is generally used by those who don’t know the basic terminology.
The first thing you need to do is determine if suppressor ownership is legal where you live. Currently, the following states allow private ownership of suppressors: AL, AR, AK, AZ, CO, CT, FL, GA, ID, IN, KS, KY, LA, ME, MD, MI, MO, MS, MT, ND, NE, NV, NH, NM, NC, OH, OK, OR, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, WA, WI, WV, and WY. Even if you live in one of these states, you should verify that owning a suppressor is legal in your area. Of the thirteen states that do not allow civilian ownership, CA, IA, MA, and MI allow specific Class 3 dealers and Class 2 manufacturers to possess suppressors.
Many people are under the mistaken impression that they need a “Class 3” license to own a suppressor. This is not true. If you live in a state where suppressor ownership is legal, and you can legally own a firearm, then you can buy a suppressor.
Suppressors, like machine-guns or Fully automatic firearms, are regulated under the National Firearms Act (NFA) of 1934, and are regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. The procedure for owning a Suppressor may seem daunting at first, but requires less paperwork than buying an automobile.
How Should You Register Your New Suppressor?
Once you’ve determined that you can legally own a suppressor, you should carefully consider what the best method will be for you to register a suppressor. There are three possible ways to register a suppressor, and each method has its own pros and cons:
Register The Torrent Suppressor In Your Own Name
- You Can Avoid Initial Work Required To Setup A Trust Or Corporation and it generally can be faster to release your suppressor from “suppressor Jail”
- Only You Can Be In Possession Of The Suppressor
- Requires Fingerprint Cards And Photos (all suppressors do)
- Your Forms Cannot Be Filed Electronically, Which Means They Will Generally Take Quite A Bit Longer To Be Approved
- People Who Don’t Plan To Buy A Lot Of NFA Items
- People Who Just Want To Get The Buying Process Started
- People Who Always Plan To Be Present When The Suppressor Is In Use
Register The Torrent Suppressor To A Trust
- Anyone Listed As A Trustee In The Trust Can Be In Possession Of The Suppressor
- A Revocable Trust Can Be Changed At Any Time Without Notifying The ATF
- No Signature Is Required From Chief Law-Enforcement Officer
- You Only Need To Create The Trust Once. The Same Trust Can Be Used For All Future Suppressors Or Other NFA Items (Such As Short Barreled Rifles)
- Some Initial Work And Cost Is Required To Setup Generally between $200.00 to $300.00 dollars more. Many People Create Their Trust Using Do-It-Yourself Software – The disadvantage to that is you cant ask yourself or software questions.
- Or You Can Also Talk To A Gun Trust Lawyer Who Will Set It Up For You and they will be available to answer questions as long as they are alive.
- In Some States, A Trust Needs To Be Registered With The State – Although That Is Not A Requirement In Most Cases.
- EVERYONE on the trust must be fingerprinted and have photos submitted with the Form 4.
- The wait for approval of Form 4 with a trust can be longer, likely based on the fact that all of the backgrounds need to be done on the trustees.
- People With Family Members Who Want To Share Possession Of The Suppressor
- People Who Want To Go Together With Friends On The Purchase Of A Suppressor
- People Who Want More Flexibility In The Long Run
- Anyone Planning On Making Multiple NFA Purchases.
Register The Suppressor To A Corporation
- Any Officer Of The Corporation Can Be In Possession Of The Suppressor
- If You Already Have A Corporation, This Can Be Easier Than A Trust Since You Will Avoid The Initial Trust Setup
- Cards Are Required for all officers of the corporation and this could cause a delay in approval of Form 4, likely based on the fact that all of the backgrounds need to be done on the officers of the corporation.
- You Need to Keep Your Corporation in Good Standing, Which Can Be More Work Than A Trust (Which Is Basically A “Create It And Forget About It” Process In Most Cases)
- Anyone Who Already Owns a Corporation, And Wants That Corporation to Act as The Owner of The Suppressor
- Anyone Planning on Making Multiple NFA Purchases
- People Who Want to Get Their Approval Faster Using the New Electronic Submissions
Now, you’re ready to buy your new Torrent® Suppressor!
Once you know you can legally own a suppressor, and you know how you’re going to register it, it’s time to go shopping!
The process of actually buying the suppressor online is similar to buying something from Amazon.com, or any other online retailer, with only three major differences:
1.We do not take payment over the web. Instead you will be called by a company representative who will give you the customer service you deserve.
2.We can’t ship a suppressor directly to your house (unless you live in Texas). For non-Texas buyers, you will need to provide information for an FFL holder in your state with a Class 2 or 3 SOT that can handle the transfer for you. We can even help you locate an FFL/SOT holder in your area if you don’t already know one.
3.You won’t be able to take possession of the suppressor until the transfer process has been completed by the ATF. This process can take several months – but most suppressor owners will agree that it’s well worth the wait!
