Well, I've had a bug in a my bonnet for quite some time to get into the world of silencers (suppressors). They are legal in most states, including mine, but are tightly regulated at the federal level. For those unfamiliar with the process, it requires one to fill out a Form 4 in duplicate, finger print cards in duplicate, get your chief law enforcement officer (CLEO) to sign off on the application, submit a $200 tax, and then wait between 6-12 months for the ATF to review the application. Once approved, you can then pickup said silencers, after the customary form 4473. Annoying? Yup. Anyway, to avoid some of that (fingerprints, CLEO sign off are biggies), one can form a trust that holds the items. So, that's what I did. The forms came back from my lawyer to me on Tuesday, I had them notarized, and I'm ready to roll. If things are quiet at the office tomorrow, I plan on visiting the local Class III dealer and pick out a couple cans. Anyway, its been a long process and I've got a way to go, but we're on to the fun part of selecting the silencers. Well, that and the not so fun waiting for a approval. If anyone is interested, I'll post how it goes. P.S. If anyone is interested in NFA items (silencers, short-barrel shotguns/rifles, AOWs, etc.), the Trust route, at least for now, is a nice option to cut down on the redtape. It cost me very little to setup in this state and I'd reckon it wouldn't be too bad elsewhere.
