There is a process to follow to obtain a suppressor in Louisiana. First, you must apply to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. This application must be signed by a notary public, and it must include your name, address, contact information, and the specific make and model of the suppressor you wish to purchase.

You will also need to submit a $50 application fee, as well as fingerprints and photographs. The department will then conduct a background check. If you pass the background check, you will be issued a certificate of registration for your suppressor.

It is important to note that only certain types of suppressors are legal in Louisiana. For instance, silencers that are manufactured for use with airsoft guns or paintball guns are not allowed. Additionally, any silencer that is designed to muffle the report of a firearm by more than 50% is illegal.

First, you’ll need to purchase the suppressor from a licensed firearms dealer. You can also buy suppressors online from out-of-state dealers as long as the dealer ships the suppressor to a licensed firearms dealer in Louisiana.

You will also need to submit an application to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) and pay a $200 tax. The ATF form 4 is available online at the ATF website. Once you have submitted the form and paid the tax, you will need to wait for approval from the ATF before taking possession of the suppressor. This process can take several months, so plan accordingly.

Finally, keep in mind that while suppressors are legal in Louisiana, they are still regulated by federal law. This means that you can only use a suppressor while shooting on private property or while hunting. It is illegal to use a suppressor while shooting at a gun range or other public place.

If you have any questions about ammunition or firearms laws in Louisiana, please contact a local attorney.
