ok secondly i will probably only be moving there for about 2 years, should i do the permanent change or just say they will be out for a year, and then when that year is up i can do it again for another year?
I'd get some guidance on this one. My instinct would be to check "No" for question 2, and file for another permanent transfer down the road, but check with ATF to be sure.
also what if i do this form and some unforseen situation casuses me to not end up moving, because at this point its only about 95% chance im moving
They will probably want a letter from you stating that the permanent move is not taking place. (If you didn't file as a permanent move, just forget about it. There's no obligation to actually take it interstate.)
also does "serviceable" mean does it work or not?
if not what does it mean?
Servicable means "Is it dewatted". If the barrel is plugged, or the chamber welded shut, or one of the other usual methods of deactivating a weapon without destroying it has been used on it. Normally just applies to registered dewats.
If it only has a broken spring or something then it's still considered servicable.
i figured i would try here first so they can spend their time doing tax stamps for all of you
Ask for Ernie Lintner, he can help you, and he doesn't do the tax stamping part of the operation.
