Gun Trusts

Based on an initial client consultation, Resch and Root, LLC will provide options on which method of NFA firearm registration of ownership will work best for your situation.

Gun Trusts can be set up to be very flexible. Most are established as a revocable trust, which means it can be changed by the grantor during his or her life. With a revocable trust, the grantor may add or subtract individuals or weapons to and from the trust as necessary. Another advantage is that a trust allows the grantor to legally bypass many ATF application requirements. Fingerprints, photographs, and CLEO signature are not required. Not only can this speed up the process, but you do NOT need to provide the government with this information.

Sometimes people will ask about setting up a corporation as the registered owner. Trusts are generally private and do not require public filing (this may not be the case in every state so you should check with a local attorney on this). Corporations are public, do require filing, and also require annual maintenance fees and taxes. For these reasons, setting up a Gun Trust is the way to go.

Gun ownership is an important decision. It is important that guns and weapons are stored and used safely. Let us help you own, share, and transfer them safely.

We will prepare an NFA Gun Trust and all necessary supporting documentation which will make your ownership, possession, and utilization of your NFA items compliant with Federal laws and regulations.
