Suppressors, or silencers, are commonplace, sometimes mandatory, when hunting in Europe and other parts of the world. But in the United States, they’re most often the tools of bad guys in gangster and spy movies.

Suppressors are now legal for hunting in Alabama, and their use may be coming to your state. For the pros and cons, check out this conversational video between a game official and a current suppressor user.
