Dunno about Texas, but Nebraska is pretty NFA friendly. Get the Form 4's and CLEO signature (or form a trust) and pay your $200 tax, and you can have a pre-1986 macnine gun (if you can afford it, as they are pricey), buy or make a short barreled rifle or shotgun, buy a suppressor (there's several dealers selling them in my area) ..... it's not illegal, just more complicated than just walking in and buying a gun.
