    A while back I was at a gun shop in Shawnee and the owner said that it was pointless to purchase a silencer because it's almost impossible to get "permission" from the sheriff's office. Anybody in tulsa co have any experience with this?

    It's called a Trust and it works beautifully!

    I have friends that live in the Shawnee area that have silencers and didn't have a problem and they didn't do a trust. Can you have the police chief sign off? I went the trust route just because I thought it would be easier. Which gun shop was it?

    IIRC, any CLEO in the jurisdiction in which you reside can sign. It could be a Sheriff, Chief of Police if you live in an incorporated town, District Attorney, or a District Court Judge. But with any of these you usually have to pay for fingerprints and photos.

    My Trust was free and my credit union notarized it for free. So I see no value in going the CLEO route, unless you just have to have your name on it rather than the name of your Trust. JMO

    I've heard that too. There were some posts on here about two years ago talking about it.

    From what I read in the post and the profile, the OP lives in Sand Springs, which I'm guessing is in Tulsa County. He was making inquires about buying a can from a dealer in Shawnee and the dealer told him that the Sheriff would not sign where he lives.

    Yeah, I was in shawnee for work and went in to look around. The owner had been in the Army, I believe. Can't remember the name of the place, but he had several pistols (mainly ruger .22 Mk III) with silencers. We talked about them and when I said I was from tulsa he mentioned that the sheriff's office had to sign off on it and that they rarely did. I'll have to look into a trust. Thanks for the info!
