Going the Trust route only saves you time by not having to get photos/fingerprints/CLEO signature done before you mail off the packet to the ATF. Once the ATF receives it, doesn't matter if the application was done as an individual or Trust, it's the same wait time....which is currently 9+ months.
And unfortunately things don't get any faster on subsequent applications. Each and every submission is pretty much treated like a new one in terms of wait times. Time is the real deterrent in owning NFA toys. But it's so totally worth it in the end. It feels like you completed a degree in Patience
