NFA Gun Trusts
Purchasing and registering Class 3 firearms involves a detailed and rigorous application process for the individual making the purchase. A Firearm Trust is a kind of irrevocable living trust that enables a group of individuals to possess, own, and transfer ownership without such a rigorous process.
Our attorneys at Mercho Caughey are adept at helping their clients with NFA Gun Trusts. An NFA Gun Trust can be beneficial to you and your family in numerous ways. For example, it can allow a Trustee to share NFA weapons and parts with co-trustees, maintain ownership and possession of firearms after the respective owner’s death, and exclude firearms from probate proceedings.
