silencer laws in california??

The second gun in my collection that im going to purchase (the first was a xd-40) is a walther p22, just for plinking around. Now, for those of you that dont know, the great state of california has rather strict gun laws, and i have heard conflicting stories from different people that buying a surpressor is legal but you just have to jump through alot of hoops, and other people say that it is ILLEGAL. The only info from the internet i could get was about silencers on rifles and assult weapons.

Does anybody know if I can indeed buy a silencer in cali for my p22????

Packing.org is a good place for info.

If you truly go the supressed way I recommend the Pilot from Advanced Armament. Thats whom I got mine from. Very quiet wet or dry....

California doesn't even allow the threaded tip for the p22, so the silencer seems out of the question altogether.

You may want to check the Ca DOJ website or call CA DOJ
for more specific information on the ownership of suppressors.
From http://www.ccfa.com/NFAOwnership_IFRAME.htm

A Note about NFA Weapons and California

As a general rule the definitions of NFA weapons, as regulated in
California, track exactly the federal definitions, and categories.

Cal. Penal Code Sec. 12020(a) prohibits the possession of, among other
things, AOW's (Any other Weapons) and short shotguns and short rifles.
Subsection (b) lists exemptions to the application of (a).

Subsection (b)(7) of section 12020 exempts any "firearm or ammunition"
lawfully possessed under federal law and on the C&R list.
Subsection (b)( exempts ALL AOW's except pen guns.
Subsection b(2) is the exemption for the movie permit for short shotguns
and short rifles with the procedure for its issuance found at section 12095.

Californians can legally possess any AOW, except a pen gun, as long
as it is possessed in compliance with federal law. Likewise they
can possess any C&R listed short rifle or short shotgun.

Short shotguns and short rifles are defined at (c)(1)
and (c)(2) respectively; the definitions are essentially the same as
federal law. HOWEVER, unlike the feds, California courts have
ruled that the length of a rifle with a folding stock is
measured with the stock folded, not extended, as the feds do. So a
gun that is not a short rifle under federal law may be one under California
law. See People v. Rooney, 17 Cal.App.4th 1207 (1 Dist. 1993).

Any firearm whose possession is otherwise prohibited
by subsection (a) is ok, under b(7), if the gun is a C&R one
and lawfully possessed under federal law. This would not provide an
exemption to the requirement for a state permit for a machine gun,
as 12020(a) does not regulate mg's. That is section 12220 (ban)
and 12230 et seq. (permits). Rules for DD's are at section 12301 et seq.
Silencers are regulated at section 12500 et seq. The state Department
of Justice has totally discretionary authority to issue permits
to possess DD's or machine guns.Civilians are totally prohibited from owning silencers.
