I used the trust route for my things. The first time I went the individual route and the CLEO messed up his part. I didn't find out about it until 4 months later when the ATF sent me a letter. I decided to go the trust route after that to eliminate any other mistakes.I'm thinkin about a supressor for my Mosquito, so I'm looking at tax stamp/form 4 stuff.
I see a lot of info about using a trust vs not.
Please correct me if I'm wrong here, but it seems the biggest advantage to a trust is getting around the chief law enforcement officer signature.
I don't think I'll have any problems with that part so are there enough other advantages to go that way instead of just filling it out myself?
The only other semi-useful thing I can find about a trust is that you can put a co-trustee on it so you can let someone else use your weapon.
Am I missing anything?
Should I do the trust or save the lawyer's fee and just go talk to the Sheriff?
You still have to file a citizenship/verification form(s), but you do away with the finger print cards and the CLEO signiture.
Good luck with your paperwork
BTW-I used Quicken Willmaker.
If you do go the Trust route, send in your entire Trust document minus the instructions. It will save you the heartache of getting a return letter and the longer wait.
