I my search for a good NFA trust attorney, I came across this nice woman who is set up in Palm Harbor. She's one of the few that specialize in NFA trusts...but she's charging $395 to set it up! WTF?! Granted I know when it comes down to most attorney's, you get what you pay for, but does this seem a little much to you guys?

Anyone in FL know any other attorneys that they could recommend that specialize in NFA?

PM me if you do. I'll fork it out if I need to, but I was hoping to spend half that price. Let me know.

Only other NFA attorney I know of is in Jacksonville. He runs the guntrustlawyer.com site and charges 600$.

Ask the attorney if the price covers future amendments at no charge.

Thanks for the advise. I will ask. If that's the case, I shouldn't complain. Seems like the only thing cheap about my lifestyle will be feeding a 9mm AR.

I was on that site. It's a great read.

Anyone else?

These guys used to prepare Firearm Trusts for customers. Call them up and see if they still do.

They are a great custom shop in Jacksonville and is even a Spike's dealer.

Does anyone have a trust in the name of their choice? I want to title a trust a particular name and I think I'm resticted to naming it my name. Did anyone setup their trust with a different name other than their own? Did you have to be a corp of some kind to do that?

My understanding of the trust is that it is basically like setting up a corporation, and you can use any name you want; that said, I would stay away from offensive names as the ATF may not like "Kill Everyone I See, Inc."

I'm in Richmond, but as NFA is federal, it should be the same for you.

I would suggest keeping your trust name as "(your full name) firearm trust". Because laws vary from state to state it is best to keep your trust as sterile as possible.

:lol: Yeah...naming it that wouldn't be very smart.

That is the smartest plan...I just think it would be weird to see my FULL NAME stamped in block letters, below the ejection port door.

I'll just cover it with a redimag...if anyone wants to see the markings, i can just take it off.

As long as the letter height and depth meet the ATF standard, you can engrave anywhere on the lower.

Some people have it done inside the trigger guard, front of the magwell, or under the forward assist. Though putting it under where port door does allow the port door to block most of the visibility. Not that visibility matters though, because I haven't seen anyone color fill their SBR engravings. =)

If it's alright with y'all I'm going to create another thread to use as a database for people looking to get their trusts set up. Chris can delete it if he wishes (I know I hate duplicate threads).

I figure we're our own best resources here since this IS the NFA forum and anybody with NFA gear will have done this before. It would be sweet to have people post their experiences so the rest of us might have an easier (and cheaper) run through this part of the deal.

If you want to start a thread for people to share where they got their trust done, that is fine with me.

Just make sure, if you post a source, that they still offer the service publicly and are ok with you posting their details. ;o)

Okay, I just got my trust today. (exciting). The first line says, "The revocable living trust shall be known as the (MY FULL NAME) Revocable Living Trust."

What's in RED is what I need to have engraved on the lower?

I hope the lower can fit all that. I have a loooong name.

Correct. If you engrave a lower it should match the name on the top of your trust. Luckily the font sized required by ATF is small and you can fit long names along the top of the right side of the magwell.

Has anyone tried this shop to find out if they still offer the service? Also, does anyone have a link or contact info to the attorney doing the trust for $395?
