Pennsylvania recently passed a law permitting the use of medical marijuana for certain serious medical conditions and illnesses. A problem arises because the possession and use of marijuana is illegal under Federal Law. It is a controlled substance under Federal Law.  A user of a controlled substance is prohibited by Federal Law from purchasing, acquiring or possessing a firearm. When purchasing a firearm, you must complete forms required by ATF. One of the questions asks if you use a controlled substance prohibited by Federal Law.  You must answer the question truthfully. If you answer “Yes”, you will not be approved for the purchase or transfer of a firearm. If you do not answer the question truthfully, you will be subject to criminal sanctions, which may include perjury and illegal possession of a firearm.

The federal law may also affect an individual’s ability to obtain or renew a license to carry a firearm. It may even make it unlawful to keep or possess a firearm that one owned or possessed prior to using medical marijuana or obtaining a Medical Marijuana Card.

Laws differ from State to State and time to time. This article applies to Pennsylvania under current law.

Suppressors FAQ

DISCLAIMER:  The information provided below is based upon the information that we have available to us, Target World, Inc for PA residents.  It is not meant to replace or be a substitute for that of any Law Enforcement (Federal or Local), or Legal Advice.

If you can pass the background check to purchase a firearm over the counter then you will pass the check to own an NFA device.

NFA devices are a series of firearms and devices commonly referred to as Class III but actually fit under title II of the NFA. Items such as suppressors, SBRs, SBSs, DDs, and AOWs are all NFA devices. Firearms you buy over the counter (normal pistols, Shotguns with a barrel length over 18”, Rifles with a barrel length over 16”, etc.) are classified under title I of the NFA.

There are 2 ways to purchase a suppressor; individual and trust.

The process to purchase a suppressor over the counter is quite different than purchasing a firearm. If you apply for a suppressor as an individual you must fill out an ATF Form 4 in triplicate, get fingerprinted on 2 sets of FD-258 fingerprint cards which then need to be completely filled out, get 2 passport-sized photos of yourself, and include a $200 check made out to the ATF with most of the mentioned items above. You will send the $200 check, 2 copies of the ATF Form 4 (with the passport photos attached to it), and the 2 sets of fingerprint cards to the ATF.

To file as a trust you must have a trust made out with you and everyone else you want to have access to the NFA items as trustees. You will fill out all of the above but you also need to include 2 copies of an ATF responsible person questionnaire for all of the trustees in your trust. Each trustee will also have to get fingerprinted on 2 sets of FD-258 fingerprint cards and get 2 passport-sized photos taken. You will include all these forms in the envelope you send to the ATF.

Trust allows you to give multiple people access to trust property (suppressors, SBRs, SBSs, machine guns, DDs). If you file for an NFA item as an individual that approved individual and only that individual can possess that item or any NFA trust property. If you file as a trust, NFA items will still have to remain at the premises for which the stamp was applied for however and trustees can remove those items from the premises for use. Items in either situation need to be returned to the premises after use.

Trusts also provide you with a place to put all of your NFA items and normal firearms so that they’re legally secured in the event that the owner dies.

Wait times vary depending on a lot of factors including politics, volume of applicants, and how many employees the ATF has working on applications. Average wait times are usually 8-9 months for a Form 4 but times are not set and fluctuate regularly.

Yes, limited use – if you purchased the suppressor from us or through Silencer Shop, the limitation is that you will be able to shoot using the suppressor down on the range, however, you are not permitted to take the suppressor off-premises until final ATF review and approval.

NOTE: This is a Target World, Inc. policy.

There is a $200 tax which is paid directly to the ATF. You also may have to have passport photos taken of yourself. The only other cost is the cost of mailing the packet into the ATF, and a $25 Silencer Shop use fee if used.

No, they still need a warrant. They can’t just randomly come by and inspect your premises.

The first step to purchasing a suppressor is to come into the store and make a selection based on the type of firearm you’re trying to suppress (rifle, pistol, shotgun), the purpose you want the suppressor for (home defense, target shooting, hunting, etc.), and recommendations from the research you’ve done or with our staff.

Once you’ve decided which suppressor(s) you’d like to purchase, there is a 50% non-refundable deposit due. If suppressors need to be ordered, we will order them for you.

If the item is in stock, or when it arrives, we will direct you to our Silencer Shop kiosk for fingerprinting and paperwork.
