Gun Silencer Sales Are Booming

Sales of gun silencers are booming.

Nearly a half million cylindrical devices used to muffle gunfire were sold in 2013.

Silencers are so popular there is a nine month wait to have a registration approved by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Sound suppressors are popular with hunters because they can get off several shots without frightening the game.
