You would be both the Grantor and a Trustee. If your trust has a line for both, you sign both lines. Some trusts will have Grantor/Trustee and you only sign that one line.

How are you drafting your trust? Doing it yourself or going through an Attorney?

Trust

I'd suggest having a lawyer do this, seriously, if you haven't done so already if only for peace of mind. There's so many bends and twists involved in these things.

+1, at least for your first one. If you do it wrong, the BAFTE will probably still approve it. Then you'll build your SBR/silencer and be in posession of an illegal gun .

I read the case of this happening on ar15.com and that was enough for me to contact guntrustlawyer.com. I don't work for them or anything, but they were really helpful and answered every annoying question I asked them! (probably 20 on my first SBR!)

I've done several applications now and I've got the hang of it now so I don't pester them much any more but it's worth it IMO.

The reason I asked. It would probably behoove you to obtain the services of an attorney.

After a lot of digging around, I've never heard of ANYONE getting prosecuted for an invalid trust. However, there are significant legal fees that *might* have to be paid to clean up the mess of an invalid trust. Much easier to spend the money up front on an attorney well versed on NFA issues.

re: plouffedaddy: Getting a trust is a one time deal. Once you have it it's going to be the same one reguardless of how many NFA items you put in it's posession. (I know plouffedaddy already knows this, I just wanted to make it more clear for someone just getting into the NFA Game.)

^^^That's the case I was referring to.

Yup, what I was saying is that you should pester your lawyer for your first one at least, until you get the hang of it...

Is there someone that can look over the trust I have for free and make sure it is ok before I go any further with it?
