Beware of Co-Trustees and Joint Trustees in Gun Trusts for NFA Firearms

In almost every trust used for NFA firearms, such as silencers/suppressors and short barrel rifles (SBRs), there are ‘co-trustees’ or ‘joint trustees’ to allow them to have legal possession of the NFA firearms in the trust.  Unfortunately these people typically have the same power as the ‘trustee’ who manages the trust.  This poses a problem.

If one day you are the trustee of a gun trust, you might wish to add your friends to the trust so they do not violate the National Firearms Act by possessing trust property.  While you may want them to comply with the NFA, you probably don’t want them to exercise the same control over the trust as you.

Gun Trust USA uses a different approach because we want to protect the authority of the trustee.  Using our solution you may act as the principle trustee, and you may appoint others to the trust with reduced authority.  In fact, these other people can do little without the trustees permission.  Thus, you, the trustee, remain in full control of the trust and in full control of the firearms it contains.

Gun Trust USA prioritizes security, as well as privacy and convenience.  Create your NFA trust today, and you’ll receive a free one year membership in the American Suppressor Association.
