Purchase of any class III is very easy, Walk in to the store (CLASS III Dealer), purchase an item, Fill in the paperwork (must get sign/photos/fingerprints if not LLC or trust), Pay for the item, Pay for the $200 transfer tax, and then wait, wait, wait, and wait some more, until the dealer calls you back (they send in the paperwork) Once the paperwork is returned to the dealer, you can pick up your item (and paperwork). I suggest laminating a reduced size copy of your paperwork that you can keep with item. Although the feds don't require you to carry paperwork, it could make it easier if a local asks about your right to carry the item. Remember the most local law enforcement (unless they have class III) don't understand all the rules. I also suggest ordering a copy of the "Federal Firearms Regulations Reference Guide" 2005 (current issue) when owning a class III weapon. Most people (including BATF&E agents) don't know all the information; this is why you get different answers from different sources. I also suggest purchasing the item with a trust NOT a LLC (unless youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re a business) Remember with an LLC you are required to pay taxes each year on the corp. Trusts you are not. If you get four or five people to become members of your trust you can pool you money and purchase different items and every member can have possession of the items.
