Can a friend borrow a suppressor?

General silencer discussion. If you want to talk about a specific silenced rifle or pistol, it is best to do that in the rifle or pistol section for that brand.

All NFA laws apply.

Can a friend borrow a suppressor?

Post by heliguy » Mon Sep 13, 2010 7:26 pm

Still new to suppressors. Live in TX a friend a few towns away wants to borrow my Outback 2 for the weekend. Is this within the BATF rules?

The short answer: No.

The long answer: Hell No.
"Your" does not equal "You're", the contraction for "You are".

You must be physically present for it's use. The only time that suppressor can leave your possession is if you are sending it back to the manufacturer for repair or it's locked up good and tight in your safe.

I don't have any friends worth risking the consequences for. Why not take your friend shooting? So long as you are there, and the NFA item is under your control, all is well.

well if it's a part of a Trust and you add them as Trustees, i guess they can. not 100% sure on that though.

That's a big advantage of trusts. My wife can possess the suppressors because she's listed in the trust. You do have to be careful with who is listed however and make sure to have an attorney make sure the trust is valid for your state as well.

Doubtful, but it is not a good idea.

Well yes it's hyperbole, but only to re-inforce that it's definitely NOT a good idea.

So....another question is: Once an item is listed under a trust, submitted and Form 4 all processed and all that, can you change the trust to add a person, say like a wife, to it? What is the process involved in that?

Yes you can amend your trust, I have made a change to mine. It was not a big deal to add an amendment.

When you admended you trust did you resubmit your trust to the ATF or just have it noterized?

Was it a Quicken Trust or other? I would like to add my Dad as a trustee to mine and I am not sure how to do it.

You do not resubmit it. Just do whatever is legally require in you state to amend the trust.

Funny story, Swingline actually didn't make a stapler in red before that movie came out, but after it came out SO many people called about it that they decided to make one.

If the suppressor in on a Form 4 through a NFA trust, ad him to the trust and he is good to go.
