Re: NFA stuff...

I've done the paper form, fingerprints, picture, LEO sign off in the past. I recently formed a trust and just efiled two Form 1's. One for another short barrel rifle and one to build a suppressor. Eforms are taking 30-35 days for approval compared to 6 months for paper forms.

Re: NFA stuff...

No, only trusts can efile right now and only form 1s which are filled out if you are "building" a rifle or suppressor. As you probably already know, building can be as simple as putting a short barreled upper on a registered lower. If you are buying an already built sbr/sbs or suppressor, you have to go the paper route. That is supposed to change but who knows when.

If you build/buy NFA items under a trust, the trust owns them and not an individual. The advantage is anyone listed as a trustee has access to the items and can use them at any time. If an item is done as an individual, you need to be with it at all times if it is out of your house. Your dad/friend/wife, etc could not use it unless you were with them. If they are listed as trustees, you do not need to be around. The trust route also helps once you die. If the items was bought/built as an individual, your wife, kids, whoever, would have to fill out a form 5 to transfer the item into their name.

My wife has no idea what I have and what would fall under NFA laws and technically could get into a lot of trouble if she possessed them after I die without completing the proper paperwork. The trust takes care of this.

Also, with a trust, you do not have to go through the hassle of getting fingerprinted, sending in a photo and having your county sheriff sign off on the forms. However, this may change in the future, requiring all trustees in a trust to have this done.
