From everything I've read, a trust is DEFINITELY the way to go. Also the more expensive option, if done right, and that's why I have not done it.

A trust is the best was to purchase any class 3 item. Were .22 suppressors shine is out of a rifle with subsonic ammunition. My paperwork took 7 months to clear. It is worth it. The shop I bought mine from set up the trust and didn't charge any extra. With a trust you do not own it the trust owns it and the founding members of the trust can add or remove people as they see fit.

The people who run the shop you bought your suppressors from are also lawyers?

Pretty shaky.....A legal thing like that is nothing to fool around with. Particularly when the BATF is involved.

I see this a lot. If the gun shop provides a customer with a tool such as a template or Quicken and the customer fills in the blanks, the customer is creating their own trust and the shop is not acting as an attorney. But hey, I'm not an attorney either.

Suppressors are great. If you can afford to tie up your money for a year waiting for the impossibly slow federal government to give you permission to own one then go for it. I like mine and am waiting on the last one. I still have at least 6 months to go.

Here in Tx there are attourneys that specialize in assisting in the process of getting the trust, and it speeds up the process significantly...

That's not my point. From everything I've gathered, making your own legal documents is not the best way to go. Particularly for something like this that will come under great scrutiny by a govt. agency who is that zealous. In the same vein, I've also gathered that just writing your will down on a piece of paper will probably not hold water, either.
Texas Infidel is right, there are attorneys who specialize in such things. The one in NH charges $6-800 to do an NFA Trust. But i bet it would hold up better than anything you could do yourself.
