    At Silencer shop kiosks you use to be able to do the fingerprints right there but I haven’t done it in a few years so you could try and find a shop with one and see

    Yes, cards use ink on your finger the old fashioned leo way. Livescan is an electronic capture of your prints. Used to be you needed ink for some things, some will allow livescan.

    I know that Engage Armaments and Atlantic in Rockville have Silencer Co kiosks. Maryland Elite Firearms in Finksburg also has one. Fingerprints can be entered directly into the system at a kiosk. No need to go to a third party place to get them done electronically.

    I have used the fingerprint service on the kiosk at Engage and although it took 10 min or so to get them into the system because I did not get a good fingerprint on the first attempt each time I tried, it was pretty painless.

    If you go on Silencer Shop web site you can find the closest kiosk. I think they charge $20 to $40. You can take and update your picture with your phone. I have all my NFA customers set up a SS account.

    Ah very nice, wasn’t sure if I’d have to pay EVERYTIME i use a kiosk or if they get my prints once and it’s good for life

    This should save me a great deal of money!

    You will have to renew your photo every year, they’ll notify you to do so. You take it right on your phone and upload directly to their app.

    I have used Silencer Shop service for three cans. No problems with any of them. I used Gun Metal in Millersville and those guys have it all down pat.

    Cindy's in Pasadena is affiliated with Silencer Shop and has the kiosk. I used them for my current order. I had initially selected Gun Metal as the dealer, but when I made an appointment back in October and went in to do the prints I was informed their kiosk had been damaged in a flood. So, switched to Cindy's.

    Won’t you receive a card or paper with your picture on it after approval? Does that pic have to be updated or just the app one

    Zero paper, just an app photo. You drag and drop the pic you take into the frame in the app, re-size and crop it and submit.

    You have to make an account on Silencershop.com and then pic out the can you want. When you pay, you will enter the stamp in your shopping cart and pay for it and the can together.
