    Hoping to take possession of my new silencer sometime this summer.
    Any special rules I need to be aware of when transporting these items in my automobile or on my motorcycle when going shooting?

    Not really any that I'm aware of. You don't even need to complete a 5320.20 to transport interstate. Just don't take it to a state where they are not legal. :)

    Make sure you carry a copy of your tax stamp for your can.

    Just this ^^^
    I made copies of mine to keep with it when I head to the range. I keep the originals in the safe.

    I made quarter sized copies of my forms and had them laminated, nice and convenient!

    So if I have a can in Oklahoma and will be moving to North Dakota for a short time job, I can take it there with no problem?

    Since suppressors are legal to own in North Dakota, yes. Here is a link that will show you what states allow suppressor ownership for future reference.

    If you are moving (even if it is short time or temporary), it would be best to fill out a 5320.20 form letting the ATF know you will be moving and taking your suppressor with you. When you move back to wherever the job takes you, fill out another 5320.20 form for that address. Not sure what the ATF constitutes as vacation/travel and permanent change of address/moving. You can call them and ask if you know how long you are staying or just take the safe route and file the form. It will come back approved so you have a copy for yourself.

    If you are going to get a ND drivers license I would do the form. If not, then I wouldn't.

    Thanks, I was mainly worried about any possible regulations that would prevent me from carrying the weapon and the can if I ride my bike to the range. I had a person tell me that they can not be carried in the same container like a saddlebag.
