Keep in mind state laws, too. I was going to go the trust route here in NC, where my county CLEO will not sign off on NFA forms. He's a pretty good guy, cranks out the CCWs like nobody's business, but has pressure on him from the state level. The state laws are worded weirdly in that it neither specifies the ability nor inability to circumvent CLEO signoff via a trust, and our Asst AG receives notification of every one approved by BATF. He's a Donk and maintains a very high interest. I've never heard nor seen anybody being prosecuted for it, but I've seen where local NFA lawyers have advised against it. I've not the funds to be the first person to fight it if my number came up, and I've also decided I'm way too pretty for prison.
