Transfer must be approved by the Federal BATFE, and you pay a one time $200 transfer tax.

However, do you have any IDEA how MUCH a legal machinegun will cost you? A LEGAL M16 is about $14,000 to $16,000. Yeah, count the zeros- that was not a mistake on my part.
I really have no strong desire to own one lol. I was just looking at the laws. Right now I really jsut want a mosin nagant and a Beretta 96.

also I read some where, when they do a federal background check, they don't have access to your medical records. Is this true? It just dawned on me I almost joined the national guard and they did a background check I'm pretty sure and never mentioned anything.

Medical records- no. However, records of a person being ORDERED by lawful authority to seek mental health treatment are another matter.

THAT has to do with mental competency. The "federal background check" is the same for purchase of a Marlin .22 lever action, and an M60 machinegun, and has the same disqualifying criteria.

If you apply for enlistment in any branch of the US military, you give consent for access to information on your medical records as well. There are medical conditions that preclude enlistment. I have diabetes, and would not be permitted to enlist. NOW. I did- THEN!

So if I receive an SSI check, that wouldn't show up either I assume.

When I was a juvenile, my grandmother sent me to some psych ward at the hospital, would this show up or no? I was there for about eight days twice.

It'd probably show up on your medical history... It doesn't hurt to try but the chances are slim I think.

So, you are saying I'd have to purchase guns on the black market, if I wanted to purchase guns? Would there be a way to get medically cleared by a doctor? I am now more concerned with just being able to purchase guns in this state, rather than have then for concealed carry, atleast until I move out of state.

This is where I was placed, for the first time at age 5. http://www.drtaba.net/?page_id=28 and the second time because my grandmom and I were arguing, so she just put me in there. I have never been ordered by a court to go to a place like this however and I have never been to a place like this as an adult. I have never received, nor has my grandmother received paper work, stating I can not purchase fire arms.

No one is saying buy anything on the black market. Look none of us are offering you legal advice. But I'm a Maryland resident and will suggest this, go to a gun store that is not a big box store and talk with the people who deal with the paperwork every day. Then buy a damn gun, if your paperwork gets denied it gets denied. If you don't want to ever have a denied, then don't buy a pistol or "assault rifle" as defined by the state of Maryland and you won't have to fill out the Maryland specific paperwork just the NICS check.

Don't buy anything illegally, don't try to purchase a handgun or assault rifle at a gun show, that's illegal in this state(without the waiting period and paperwork). The rules are stupid and strict but it's not impossible just a hassle.

How about in Virginia do you know? I will be moving to Virginia within a year. I will just postpone trying to buy guns until then.
