Currently in areas where chief law enforcement sign offs are impossible, people have been forming specific gun trusts to allow Class III item purchases and to allow for more secure legal control of NFA items.
41P requires those submitting purchases through a trust or corporation to go through the same process required from individual purchasers (passport photos, fingerprints, proof of chief law enforcement notification, submitting a "responsible person" form, individual comprehensive background checks, etc).
I guess it's now known as 41F in the final form. In short it just complicated NFA purchases submitted under a trust or corp which are currently simple and relatively easy.
On July 13th, it officially goes into effect. As with most such rule changes the guise is safety but I think it's really just meant to discourage would be purchasers.
Whenever someone comes up with a way to make such red tape relatively painless, the gubment finds a not so creative way to kill it.
I read that there's a two year grace period, so you could purchase a hundred tax stamps over two year period and only submit one set of full paperwork for the first one. The rest simply refer to that item and it's documentation. And only the trust's "Responsible Person(s)" are required to submit paperwork for new applications (NFA governs purchases). Mere trustees who have no administrative authority over the trust need not submit documentation, nor do beneficiaries who are not named as responsible persons in the trust.
There's a lot of confusion on the issue.
My county CLEO at one time refused to approve suppressor applications. He's since been ditched for a much better county sheriff. But it's gotta be a good thing for a lot of folks that the CLEO sign-off has been replaced with just notification.
This morning I woke up feeling better than I have for a long time. Spent a couple of hours at the range... Artillery Therapy.
I still like the feel of my 1911 better than the M&P Shield 9 but it performed better than the 45.
I finally got to run a hundred rounds thru the "new to me" Marlin .22 Mod 60. Got the scope sighted and had a silver dollar grouping at 20 yds. I was thinking about magazine size squabbles as I dropped 18 rounds down the tube.
Just saw something that made my mouth water, a new Kel-Tec tactical bull-pup 24rd 12ga. pump. mmmmmmm
On my way home i ran over and retrieved a 4 foot prairie rattlesnake. Gonna Bar-B-Q her today for lunch.
I'm thinking I have a weak spring, the 45 failed to cycle completely twice, had to bump it. I have a 10 rd clip that had no trouble a stock clip that failed once and another that failed to feed. I ran 50-60rds. thru the 9 with zero issues other than not seeing holes where I thought they should be.
the 45 is 30 years old, the S&W is brand new and still stiff.
The 12ga I played with was my 870 Express, I have an 18.5 rifled and a 28" Goose barrel for it.
The Marlin is wood, slightly buggered at the tube latch, otherwise very clean.
Mag springs and a recoil spring may be in order for the 1911. The firing pin spring should be replaced at the same time. As long as the feed lips aren't spread or cracked the mag bodies may be good. For replacement mags Chip McCormick and Wilson Combat make good stuff. The Colt GI mags are fine, too. I've got a few MecGar mags as well.
I had an 870 Wingmaster for many years. I need it back some day. The current gun is an 1100.
My kid wants a 10/22 dressed up to look like a Mini-14 tactical. That's actually a kinda cool idea. One of these years.
