    Only change I'd make is to the second paragraph.

    A simlar muffler for a rifle
    is subject to a $200 tax and
    a 6 month background check
    and isn't even legal at all in some states.

    Finland has considered making civilian ownershop of
    silencers obligatory:

    I like it.

    (Of course, umm ... showed it to one of my kids, who glanced at it and said, "What about 'Loud pipes save lives'?")

    Good poster.

    Nice one Oleg.

    It would be great if you could work in the bit about some states not even allowing cans, but I"m afraid it'd get way to wordy before you were done.

    I like it as is.

    I will make a whole series of posters on this topic. While at it, let me recommend another excellent forum: Silencer Tests

    I'm not going to say anything offensive to Art's grandmother about Helvetica.

    Good choice. Helvetica wasn't used anywhere in this poster.

    That said, I have almost no fonts for PC. Can Mac fonts be converted somehow?

    Easily by someone on a Mac with a program like Macromedia's Fontographer.

    Harder to do on the PC because of the old Mac 2-forks file system.

    EDIT
    This might shed some light on it though

    Yeah, but it's a Helvetica copy, imitation, or knock-off.

    Umm, ok, I guess.

    Myself, I'm more of a "Loud Pipes Save Lives" kinda guy, straight pipes on my Shovelhead FXR and all...

    Of all the posters you've recently put up, this is one of my favorites. It has long been a desire of mine to suppress my guns, and I finally completed enough of the collection that I'm willing to pay for it. With any luck, by this time next year every time I shoot a .22 or .45 or .308 it will be a happy quiet kind of shooting.
