Silencers / MACHINEGUNS
Did you know that owning a suppressor (silencer), machinegun, short barreled rifle or shotgun is legal in the State of Florida? You just need to go through the proper channels. At Suncoast Weapons and Tactical, we can help. Here are some basic requirements necessary to purchase & own a Class III / NFA weapon:
- You must have a clean record, with no felonies
- Be at least 21 years of age
- You must be a resident of the State of Florida
- You must have valid identification issued by the State of Florida
- In the State of Florida, you may use a Trust or Corporation
Since the passing of 41F, there is no difference between filing as an Individual, Trust or Business Entity. However, filing as a Trust is still one of the most popular forms of NFA ownership. Benefits include multiple trustees may legally possess the firearms, and upon death the firearms are transferred to beneficiaries of your choice. Another benefit of a trust over a business entity registration is Trusts generally do not have any annual renewals. In the State of Florida, for example, there is no recording of a Trust nor are there any fees required. This offers more privacy than a business entity, which is public record. If you want to get a trust, please consult an attorney for guidance.
At Suncoast Weapons and Tactical we recommend Jeffrey Young, Attorney at Law for your trust. Some gun shops will prepare a trust for you however these have not been reviewed by an attorney. Jeffrey Young will prepare a gun trust specifically geared to your situation.
Once your trust is complete, purchase your NFA item from Suncoast Weapons and Tactical and we will then assist you with the appropriate forms.
