Do you have one? Do you need one? Have you ever even heard of such a thing?
Let me splain why you may need one. More and more states are making it legal to hunt with a suppressor (you probably call them silencers). So lets say you buy one... fill out all the ATF paperwork to own it legally and pay your 200 bucks for the stamp. Congrats. You're the legal owner of a suppressor.
Now... Lets say you're going to the range after work and you have your suppressed weapon in the trunk of your car. While you're at work your wife comes by because she needs your car for some reason. She grabs your keys and off she goes. You didn't think about the gun in the trunk.
Now lets say your wife gets in a wreck. Someone finds the silenced weapon in the trunk. Your wife is not the owner.
Your wife is going to jail. And you're likely going to jail with her. For a long... long... time.
If you had a gun trust... that wouldn't happen.
Gun trusts permit multiple trustees to use and possess the weapons in the trust legally. They also prevent additional transfer fees when you die and leave your weapons to your kids.
Another thing to consider is long term asset protection. Look... we all have a lot of money tied up in firearms. Its nice to know that no matter what happens... they are safe. Example... Your kid is a trustee. He gets a divorce and the psycho ex-wife is trying to get absolutely everything. Sorry. To bad. So sad. She can't touch the guns.
These things aren't expensive to set up. And the protection they provide is worth many times more than they cost.
Give it a look.
