Is it still worthwhile to purchase NFA items through a Trust? If So can anyone recommend a good attorney to do the trust for me. I'm in Franklin, TN

I don't know the answer to the first part of your question but the person to talk to about gun trusts is John Harris.

John wells did mine, he's a member here. It depends on several different things but the main reason for me to go with a trust was so I could add family members.

This is my reasoning. I’m going to buy all my NFA toys, then I’m going to add the wife to the trust. 😇

Thanks for the replies everyone. Does the Trust still alleviate the requirement to get fingerprinted or CLEO sign off?

John Wells completed my trust when I bought my first silencer.

You still have to give fingerprints but you only have to notify Cleo. It's the same either way you go on that I believe. Silencershop has made all of this way easier.

You have to provide finger prints and photos for all responsible persons on the trust.  There’s also an additional form you have to submit with the Form 4 for each responsible person on the trust now....and the LEO is ONLY a notification. 

At least that’s what I remember a few months back when I started the process.

Awesome! Great wealth of info. Is "The SilencerShop" a local store or an online vendor?

They’re an online vendor with relationships with many local stores around the country. According to your location listed in your profile, there are 3 shops that have their kiosks within minutes of you.

If you live in Franklin, Chip Cain has an office in the downtown area and does NFA trusts. He did mine for me a few years ago and it's gone through several Form 1s without an issue.

Chip Cain has setup two trusts for me. I highly recommend him.

I understand it that you can do a trust and add all the toys, then add family as responsible person and no need for finger prints. When you add a toy every responsible person has to submit fingerprints and forms. 
So you remove everyone, add the toy, then add them back, is my understanding.

NOT A LAWYER!!!

I think that's correct, however don't get caught doing it.   Pretty sure the ATF will flip if they ever catch someone doing it.

Let me correct it to say that after you have added all the toys to the trust, you can add them with only one set of finger prints etc, instead of sending it their prints and forums with every added item.

      I am looking at a local purchase of two supressors and a SBR. I live in Bartlett, a suburb of Memphis and the owner of the items lives in Memphis. We have checked with two different dealers in our area and get different answers depending on who we talk to. Some say the form 4, but the wait times seem forever. Others say for him to take the arms to a class III Dealer and transfer them to that dealer, then I can apply for the tax stamp through the dealer and use the digital filing option, which seems quicker....But, seems we cannot find out exactly how to transfer the items to the dealer. I'm more comfortable with a dealer holding the items during the wait, more so that someone I don't know very well. How much should it cost to transfer items to a class III Dealer. One dealer told this was the quickest and easiest way to go, then another employee at his store told the seller that the form 4 was the only and best way,,,thinking the dealer doesn't really make anything on it, he would rather not fool with it...Any suggestions or ideas guys....The price on the items is pretty good, especially since the owner found out how hard it is to sell class III items. Thanks and I appreciate any input anyone has on this matter.

      I am 2 months into my wait. The ATF charged my CC on May 18th. 
      I'm waiting on taking ownership of a YHM Mite. I have 2 hosts for it currently; a Ruger 10/22 takedown and a Ruger SR22.
      Being patient sucks. 😁

      Decided to skip the 12-month queue with the ATF's turn-around times on retail cans, and am making my own suppressor. 
      8" x 1.65" tube Dedicated 300 BLK subs Cherry Bomb muzzle adapter Titanium, grade 9 w/ SS blast baffle Anyone else make their own cans? Have any inputs on baffle spacing, distal chamber size, etc? I've been working with a machinist or two to get the right stuff. Using a Sieg X2D mini-mill for doing the holes and clips, gonna also start an 80% build with it [Judas Priest noises intensify]
