Default Silencer Process Now

So, I waited and never was able to get the time to get things pushed through prior to the July '16 cutoff.

What is the process like now? I do not know that I fully understand what it entailed previously and I definitely do not know what all it takes now.

I am tempted to go just use Silencershop.com for the process. Best I can tell they seem to have streamlined the process.

Anyone recently go through the process?

Not sure, but when I checked a few weeks ago for a silencer for my AR-15, guy told me it was an 8 month process.

1st things first... do you plan on purchasing your NFA item through a trust or as an individual?

Here's what 41F (the July cutoff) changed...

Trusts: fingerprints & passport style photos are required from everyone on the trust (pain in the ass, that's why there was a big push to get paperwork in...)

Individual: no longer require sheriff approval, only fingerprints and passport style photo.

Wait time right now is 9-10 months. I have a few friends who are on 9 months this week.

I think once they get through the mountain of applications submitted prior to 41F, you will see the wait times drop. The silencer industry is actually struggling do to talks of the hearing protection act... people are waiting on a bill that probably won't pass (if it does, it will be years) instead of waiting 9 months for a suppressor.

Is the trust a major benefit over the individual filing?

Depends on your intent with the Class 3 items and if you care if they stay in the family after you pass away. I have one and it was less than $100 and piece of mind for what happens with my stuff when I'm gone. Plus you can allow buddies to use your stuff and vice versa.

It depends on your situation. If you have multiple people that would like to be in possession of the suppressor, yes. Anyone who is on the trust can take it to the range or wherever.

For me, I filed individual because I will be the only one using it.

In the event of death, the trust would probably be more beneficial for the hassle free transfer of the suppressors. So I have read that even filed individual the suppressors have a one-time tax free transfer upon your death. Just what I've read though.

Can you let someone else shoot it with you standing there?

Well, I got a bit carried away. I just completed everything and pulled the trigger on:

Silencerco 22 sparrow
AAC Tirant 45

I almost bought one to shoot 300blk but had a moment of clarity. Now I wait.....

Should have looked into the Hybrid. Good from 9mm-45/70. Could use it on your .45 and Blackout
