I'm not sure who here is in the NFA game, but I decided to go for it this summer. I've been interested in suppressors for a long time, but never wanted the paperwork hassle. Thanks to Silencershop and a local kiosk, paperwork is now really easy.

I'm currently waiting on the following Form 4s:

Surefire Ryder 22-S
Mack Bros Vapor
YHM Turbo
Q Thunder Chicken
Griffin Optimus
Liberty Cosmic

I also did a Form 1 through them for an AR-15 SBR lower

In case anyone is wondering why I didn't wait for HPA (or successor legislation), here is my reasoning:

1.) I don't think it will happen
2.) Suppressor prices are incredibly low right now, so even with the $200 hit, I'm not doing too bad.
3.) Maryland will almost definitely outlaw suppressors if they are pulled off the NFA registry. In fact, there is some confusion right now as to whether or not suppressors not on the NFA registry would even be legal the way laws are written. So there may already be a de facto ban triggered for any suppressor not bought and registered with the NFA. Regardless, I'm grandfathered/not waiting two+ years for prices to drop back down.

Feel free to use this thread to discuss the NFA or NFA items, whatever.

I'd like to get some, but I'm holding off for the legislation. Prices are pretty awesome right now but every time I get enough money to drop on one, a good sale on a lower comes up and I end up building another rifle. Since my safe is full, I'll probably go ahead with the $200 if the legislation stalls any more than it is right now.

I don't know if this makes your decision any easier, but Q is running a "buy now, pay later" promotion with Silencershop until the end of the week. Basically you pay $205 for a tax stamp + Silencershop doing all your paperwork and processing, and pay for the actual can later. Like you don't have to pay for it until your form 4 gets approved. Q cans are somewhat pricy, but they are all titanium and the Quick Attach models come with two different muzzle devices. The initial reviews are outstanding.

Question: are you guys going the trust route, or getting the stamp on your own?

Question: are you guys going the trust route, or getting the stamp on your own?I did the Silencershop unlimited single shot trust method. I did this because I want the freedom to loan certain suppressors to friends for hunting or to help them teach their kids to shoot without having to be physically present. If I were to be injured on the range, I want a friend to be able to legally take possession of any of my suppressors while I am being treated. Additionally I still travel regularly for work, and my wife needs access to my gun safes, where the suppressors will be stored. This provides an extra layer of legal protection for us.

If NFA laws were a little more lenient when it came to short term loan of items or allowing immediate family unsupervised access, I would have no interest in trusts.

That is pretty dang tempting and a good deal.

I would go with trust. Typically no yearly fees, filing with the state and/or irs, and trust paperwork doesn't require you to go through the local LEO which gets political. Plus my brother is a Lawyer and I'll get him to set up the trust. I'd also like my wife to be able to sell all my stuff if I die or something like that.
