The NFA gun trust form for states other than Maryland, Florida, and Virginia, is the same as the Complete Trust except it does not come with any legal support or advice. Your personal, specific information (your full name and NFA Gun Trust name) must be filled out by the purchaser. It is a robust, firearms specific trust specifically designed to meet the needs of clients who own or wish to own NFA firearms using a gun trust. This is a user friendly form with each area clearly marked. This form is not customizable.
This trust contains additional language to facilitate sharing your NFA firearm at gun related events, such as the range or while hunting. The NFA gun trust form includes detailed handling instructions as well as definitions to provide clarity to those unfamiliar with NFA firearms or firearm possession in general. This trust enables the client to update the Beneficiary Schedule, Trustee Schedule, and NFA Firearm schedule themselves without the need to incur additional attorney fees. Another significant benefit of the NFA gun trust form is that it includes provisions to enable others at gun events, such as ranges, hunting, etc., to use your NFA firearm under your direction.
This trust is tailor made for firearms enthusiasts that collect and use NFA firearms and want to pass on their collection. The trust is designed to mitigate the risk of an accidental felony being left to loved ones or the NFA firearm being confiscated as contraband. The NFA gun trust form also includes clear, concise language designed to ensure a smooth, legal distribution and transfer of your collection. Normal estate planning documents such as wills or trusts that are not firearms specific include certain powers that would result in the illegal transfer of a firearm.
The NFA gun trust form removes the traditional powers and also provides the proper detailed guidance on how to transfer NFA firearms. This version further explains what is necessary prior to the termination of the trust. This trust best suits the majority of NFA owners. Considering the sentimental value of NFA firearms as well as the significant wealth that may be associated with even a small collection, this provides significant value and peace of mind for the client. Purchasing a NFA firearm (including a suppressor aka silencer) is a simple, straight forward process.
By using a NFA gun trust, you may also be able to significantly reduce the ATF processing time to a matter of months instead of close to one year. In order to get an NFA firearm, you do the following:
•Purchase my NFA gun trust form online
•Fill in the form in the designated areas with your specific personal information
•Date and sign the trust in front of a Notary
•Purchase your NFA firearm through an authorized gun store
•Complete the appropriate ATF form (4 or 1, depending on what you are buying), which is supplied by your gun store
•Pay the ATF tax stamp fee of $200 (or $5 if you are buying an AOW)
•Gun store submits your paperwork (request eForm)
•Once approved and your tax stamp is in hand, you will pick up your NFA firearm and update your trust accordingly
LEGAL SERVICES AGREEMENT: If you do not agree to these terms, please you cannot purchase the NFA gun trust form.
1. Attorney-Client Relationship is NOT formed. Your completion of an online order for the NFA gun trust form does NOT establish an Attorney-Client relationship. You agree that this Agreement fully sets forth the terms of this form.
2. Scope of Work and Limitations on Representation. You will be provided a purpose-built NFA “gun trust” form called a NFA gun trust form, a specialized form of revocable living trust intended for your use in acquiring, holding and transferring National Firearms Act (NFA) firearms only, during life, periods of incapacity, and at death consistent with state and federal law.
3. This trust is solely intended for your benefit and to hold NFA firearms that can legally be owned in your state. You are responsible for knowing your state law. You should NOT execute this trust if you desire otherwise and should contact an Attorney in your state for consultation.
4. You are advised to separately execute a Will or Living Trust plan and/or such other legal instruments necessary to accomplish your estate planning goals.
5. This NFA gun trust form incorporates and integrates your formal estate planning documents or will rely on State law to appoint successor trustees, or, if none, on provisions of state law to do so.

Upon completion of the online order, and payment of the fee, purchaser is entitled to the following ONLY:

3. One LOKSAK waterproof document bag for use with the NFA Trust copy that you carry with your NFA firearm.
I will email you the NFA Trust and you will fill out the relevant highlighted sections then email it back to me. I will then put your trust package together and mail it to you via USPS Priority Mail.
PURCHASER ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: By completing my order, I agree to the terms as set forth above; AND I acknowledge that my trust must be dated and signed by purchaser in front of a Notary; AND I agree that I will not provide a copy of this trust, in whole or in part, for the use of any other person or entity except as set forth in my trust.
