For personal use, yes. When I was a Deputy Sheriff we had Ruger AC556 carbines, that's the select fire version of the Mini 14, the Sheriff decided he wanted to get one for his personal use, he went through the same process than any civilian would go through to get one. The AC556 is the only full auto carbine that I have personally fired, we had a Thompson Sub Machine Gun in our weapons locker, but I don't think it was ever fired in the years I was there.robotizing said:I'm a fan of supressed weapons, don't own one myself since I'm 20 and a student, heh...
I was wondering if you are a LEO, do you have to pay taxes and have to wait for the supressor?

I stopped in at a class III dealer and asked if he had any in stock and he did - 2 minutes of looking later I purchased it and he had the paperwork ready for me in about 5 more. Then a trip to a passport photo place for two quick photos, trip to police station for fingerprints and dropping off for the chief to sign. 3 days later that was done and then I sent the papers to the dealer +money order, he submitted to ATF for me. About 39 days later it was back! Used to be about 6 months I hear, no such wait nowdays, and this was my first class III purchase and it was easy and pretty quick.
Cheap and quiet to shoot. Under $400 total including the $200 to the ATF was not bad to me! I have the TAC-65.
