    HI,

    I'm new to the forum and this is my first thread.

    I would like to know if there are any silenced tranquilizer guns that the army and government agencies use and what are they?

    Thanks for your input, I apologize if this has been asked before.

    I know of veternarian-type use, for all sizes of animals. They apparently use compressed air as the propellant, and don't make a lot of noise.

    I haven't read of any governmental use, whether by civilian or military personnel.

    I imagine a good machinist could modify most anything to shoot darts.

    Google is probably your best friend on a deal like this...

    Thanks for the reply Art, I googgled it, but no luck, seems to be rare.

    What about the veterinary ones that your talking of? any places you know of on the net where I could get one?

    Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

    Thanks guys for all the help, much appreciated.

    I live in the UK, so to hold a tranquilizer I have to get a licence first.
    After that I might try this Pneu dart system.

    Thanks Again,
