    I'm thinking about making my Dad and brother trustees, would I make a shared living trust?

    The cats are at an undisclosed location just in case...

    Think about this if something comes up that Quicken Will maker fucks up and you go to court over it, its your fault

    If you have a lawyer do it and something comes up thats wrongs. Its the lawyers ass not yours

    You really need to look into this, becuase in the end the paper "trust" owns the firearm. So let's say you leave the full auto in the safe with the door open by accident, your wife is there by herself and the ATF comes, they will charge her for possesion of a machine gun. There are all sorts of weird things that can happen with a trust.

    It is very simple, there's not really much to mess up on if you just use the trust for NFA items. A lot of people use Willmaker and I have yet to hear of anyone going to jail/court for a mistake on their trust.

    What's the difference if you own the firearm instead of the trust. The same thing can happen :dunno:

    Naa I sat down one night with some guys that were doing trusts in Arizona, some of the shit was pretty scary, there are lots of things you need to look into before doing one.

    I'm not worried about it, I'm just trying to figure out how to set it up the best way possible to include my family.

    I was pretty shitfaced the night they were talking about them, had to do with possession and how the paper owned the weapon, If I remember correctly the main reason these two guys were doing them was due to the sheriff in their county being a dick about signing off on title II shit.

    The trust 'owns' the items, but you are the grantor of the trust, meaning you get are in control of it until your death or you sell it. People do it instead of getting a sign-off when their sheriff won't, plus it's way easier. You don't have to deal with fingerprints or any of that stuff and it generally goes faster through the ATF.

    You have to have it properly setup so that your other family members CAN access the firearms when the trustee isn't there. Making them beneficiaries isn't all you have to do. It isn't that simple.

    Call Mark, pretty much every one of his customers goes the trust route.

    using willmaker for my trust.

    am not a paranoid pea-brained self-absorbed faggot

    the government does not care about your leet SBR or .22 suppressor.

    the simplest way is usually the best.

    discuss.
