While it will cost a few more dollars, I would prefer to have any legal document (will or trust) prepared by a professional.  

I used John Wells to prepare my trust.

If you just did nothing, wouldn't that just happen naturally anyway?  Is this an especially valuable gun or collection?  And why would you want to name anyone "listed for handling?"   Just askin', trying to learn something here.

I think the confusion here is the distinction between a will/estate/trust fund and a Trust used for NFA items. Sounds like @Flyboy is refering to the latter. In that case not having one means if the items owner passes, the item(s)  must be surrendered. At least that is my understanding.

Correct, wanting to do a SBR and a Can, I want to be able to allow it to pass to the family. I understand that without a trust, if my wife was to handle it to even turn it in to LEO she would be breaking the law. A trust would as I understand it, allow for my wife and family to still it keep it legally.

I used John Welles as well, I believe it was around $250. Far as time just set up a meeting and it's done. I've never heard anything bad about the Nationalguntrust or the silencer shop trust but went with John because he came highly recommended.

I wonder if anyone, anywhere, ever, that has a written trust, has been told their trust wasn’t legally correct and their weapons seized?

Scroll down and you'll see where a woman in TX had a self prepared revocable trust declared invalid (aka not worth the paper used).  Does not mention any weapons being seized.

Also states that the ATF has not questioned the validity of any gun trusts, but don't know how recent the info in this link is.  The ATF cannot just "declare" a trust invalid, only a court of law could make that determination.

The author also seems to create some confusion with his wording of "revocable living trust" and a NFA gun trust interchangeably.  In my mind, the two should not be used in this manner.  A revocable living trust is a legal document just like the NFA gun trust is, but the two have totally different objectives IMO.  The two have similar powers, terminology and objectives, and could be created/controlled under one document but only a well versed estate planning attorney familiar with ATF regs should be consulted if this is desired.  A "canned" or boilerplate trust document from an online source  would create some interesting legal issues IMO.  

I would use separate lawyers for each purpose but make sure both lawyers are aware of my intentions, so things would be laid out as I desired.

      Just got a new pistol and was told that the ATF has changed the ruling so that now you can shoulder your pistol. Here is the latest that I have found.

      I've been looking hard at the Lage MAX-31 mk2 upper. Anybody have any experience with them? Also anybody know of a good place to pick up Suomi drum mags at a good price?
      The M11/9 just isn't very useful as is.
