New Hampshire State NFA Rules and Allowable NFA Items

New Hampshire is very friendly toward NFA owners, based on the lack of laws regulating their possession and use. As long as an NFA item is registered with the federal government, a person may own and use it in New Hampshire. The only restriction is that you may not hunt with a suppressor in New Hampshire.

Hunting with a Suppressor:
Section 207:4 Silencing Devices. –

I. No person shall possess a rifle, pistol, or other firearm fitted or contrived with any silencer or device for deadening the sound of explosion, for the purpose of taking wildlife. Nothing in this section shall prohibit the use of a muzzle brake, polychoke, or compensator.
II. Nothing in this section shall prohibit a person who has obtained a depredation permit issued by the executive director of fish and game from taking wildlife under such permit using a lawfully obtained silencing device.
