Default Curious about Class 3 in two states

So, I'm contemplating getting a suppressor and I have a question maybe one of you guys can answer.
My "home of record" is SC but I live in GA, on an Army post. I know that I can apply and purchase a suppressor in SC but how do I go about transferring it's "location", for lack of better terms, to GA?
Am I on the right track or is there a better way?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Active duty military may have more than one "place of residence".

You will want to talk with the BATFE about transferring the location of a suppressor from one state to another- and you DO need to notify them when taking a Class III to another state.

Example of multiple "Place of Residence"-

Home of record- and a registered voter in- Virginia.
Residing in- Phenix City AL
Assigned to- and daily performing duties at- Ft Benning GA

For firearms, I actually had 3 legal "places of residence".

Thanks for the quick reply!
We lived in Phenix City for a little while when I was at Benning too.

I'll do some googling tomorrow and find some contact info for the BATFE so I can call them on Monday.

Got a phone book? Not being cute- many of us no longer have the paper version around- but open it to the first page, and the ATF has a phone number there.

I am sure that a permanent move will require the ATF's knowledge, but temporary transport to another state... I don't think so. At least it is not mentioned in the ATF site.

Q: Does the registered owner of a destructive device, machine gun, short-barreled shotgun, or short-barreled rifle need authorization to lawfully transport such items interstate? No mention of silencers

Yes, unless the owner is a qualified dealer, manufacturer or importer, or a licensed collector transporting only curios or relics. Prior approval must be obtained, even if the move is temporary. Approval is requested by either submitting a letter containing all necessary information, or by submitting ATF Form 5320.20 to the Bureau of ATF, NFA Branch. Possession of the firearms also must comply with all State and local laws.

[18 U.S.C. 922(a) (4), 27 CFR 478.28]

This is one of the situations that I begin this rant.

why the **** would you be willing to place your freedom and legal standing on the line depending on information solicited from a 3rd party?
Especially when you get " I don't think so". That's great legal advice!


Call the ATF. PERIOD

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

Then I would ask that no more questions of this nature be asked, just call the ATF. My reply was an answer from the ATF website to a F.A.Q. they have listed. So if you don't want to read facts from the ATF, don't ask!

wow, easy guys.
I am, by no means, going to make any decisions based on an internet message board, regardless of how much I like it (which I do!).
In a place such as this you never know when there will be someone who has literally and exactly "been there, done that."

You are correct. I have an 01 FFL and a class 3 SOT. I tend to keep up on things, or I read the law books they send us. I do not claim to know it all, just trying to answer a question.
