The sheriff in my county is notorious for not approving NFA items. Is a trust easy to set up? Am I understanding this right, if I set up a trust I don't need his approval?

And if so does everyone on the trust have to pay the $200 tax stamp?

I'd like a suppressor for my 22/45.

Yes you just see the same lawyer or another lawyer and have the location of the trust changed

Yes, with a trust you do not need Sheriff's approval. The trust is the legal owner of the NFA items and would be the only "individual" that pays the $200.

GunTrustLawyer.com

answers all your questions. I did mine through him. not the cheapest, but VERY good. Set-up a trust, have it notarized, open a bank account in the trusts name, name yourself Trustee, name your wife Trustee, make sure ALL purchases and transfer taxes are paid THROUGH the trusts bank account.

One BIG difference between a trust and doing any NFA individually, besides the CLEO letter and finger prints and pics. IF you have them transferred as an individual and IF you keep them in the same safe that your wife has her jewelry in and IF she has access to that jewelry (has the combo and uses it without you being there) then EVERY TIME she opens that safe she is creating an NFA violation. If she is a co-trustee then there can be no such violation since she is a named co-trustee of the trust.

Although it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to just get a separate safe either for your wife, or for the NFA item.....If you can afford that stuff, you can afford another safe....

I do agree with going the trust route, for all the other reasons mentioned. I called a lawyer here that specializes in NFA trusts, and he charges in the $6-800 range.

I'll have to do some asking around. We have a lot of friends that are lawyers in Chicago but that won't do me any good. Is $6-800 the average cost to have on set up? I talked to my mom and when she fully retires and she's coming back up here and she'll set up a trust. I'm looking at 4+ years of college in IL. Which sucks..
