    Ok so tax time I want to pick up a small Gemtech OUTBACK II for my rifles and pistols in 22lr.

    I have a decent understanding of how to go about the purchase as a single person. I have heard of people forming a trust to purchase suppressors and Other Class III Toys.

    How and why would you do this?

    You are NOT going to like my answer.


    See a lawyer.


    Reason I say that- some of the "Internet instant cheapo legal products" (notice at no time did I say Legal Zoom) that have been used to establish a trust to hold title to Class III firearms have produced a legal product that the BATFE has held did NOT meet the requirements for their rules, resulting in confiscation of the firearm. (Whew! All in one breath!:p)

    As an alternative, find a helpful Class III dealer, ply him with drink, pick his brain.

    nothing legal.

    Just why would someone go through all the work to set up a trust when you can just go down to class III dealer and start the process. Is it the fact that you really don't own the class III item the trust does?

    I don't care about legal or not on here I will talk to a class III dealer to go about the whole thing. I was just wondering.

    Don't know how it is in your neck of the woods, but here in MO I can buy a suppressors as long as I hold an FFL. (C&R will work.) But I have to have the written approval of the local chief LEO to get the class III approval.

    Setting up a trust eliminates the requirement for the LEO "permission slip". :rolleyes:

    Eff it. Buy The Anarchist's Cookbook and learn how to make one out of a plastic bottle. While it may be a one shot deal, you can save up your recycleables and have a whole mags worth.

    To the OP,
    Cost to have a Trust done seams to run about 300 but there are a lot of variables that can change that price
    Benefits.
    No CLEO
    No prints
    And it helps with disbursement of your NFA items should you pass on.

    Those are the basics



    Contact Sterling Arsenal, located in Sterling, VA. Nick or Luis
    They are customers of mine. Great guys and would be glad to help you out.

    I think what he said is talk to your local class 3 dealers, they will know who will sign off, be it police chief, or sheriff.

    I didnt go trust.

    Well in Texas it's pretty easy just get your form 4 from your class 3 and go to local law enforcement here we all go to local sherrif get him or chief deputy to sign off and do fingerprints passport photo and make triplicate copies go back to class 3 dealer let them look over send 200 dollars in wit form and wait 90 to 120 days and your in. It is a shall issue item they cannot deny if you have your nose clean all taxes payed, don't owe child support, or have a felony, or any other infraction. Hope that helps.

    "I hear people have BAD luck with off the shelf software for Trusts. "

    There- fixed that for ya-

    There have been a few cases where a trust established with a "one size fits all" software program does NOT fit- different forms in some states- and the BATF has gotten involved. Personally, would avoid like poison oak.
