How do you order firearm suppressors online?

Firearms suppressors, often referred to as "silencers" can be transferred over state lines through specific dealers.  Feel free to email us with questions.  Dealers submitting license information need to email it to info@cansandammo.com and you will need to include the order or customer name with the email.
