There has been a lot of confusion since the passage of the 41F ruling went into effect on June 13, 2016. We have been asked a lot of questions about the new process. Some people have thought the new ruling had made silencers illegal. Some people thought the ruling had made it so hard to get that it is not worth the hassle of getting a suppressor, short barrel rifle or a machine gun. We are going to clear up some of these misconceptions a show you how easy it is to get Silencer or any NFA item. The ruling was primarily aimed at the NFA trust and its trustees. Filling out an individual application has remained largely unchanged except for the forms. It is now mandatory to notify the chief law enforcement officer in your jurisdiction of your purchase. The ruling has made it mandatory for all trustees to provide both passport photos and fingerprints which has always been a requirement for the individual applicant. Now this can be a problem for some trust’s when trustees do not live in the same area. The good part, if there is one is this only has to happen every two years, you are able to buy additional items without the additional fingerprint and photos if you purchase within a two year time from the initial purchase. The bad part is getting everyone together at the same and the additional costs of the fingerprints, photos and time off to get them. As far as changes to your existing trust we are suggesting if you are currently have a grandfathered trust to leave it as it is and start a new trust. This will allow you to start fresh with an additional trust without having to get current trustees to make it to you before you start your next purchase. Besides that it’s none of their business what NFA items you currently have, we have a fourth amendment to the constitution that is still valid. It was 100% legal at the time you bought them. The process for and individual or trust now is to take time off work and get your fingerprints (which you have to have the FBI approved fingerprint card or you just wasted valuable time). Get two passport photo’s, buy your product, fill out your forms, pay your NFA tax and wait. What we have done at Oakland Tactical has completely streamlined our NFA process. All of the above processes are now done in house at our Howell Michigan gun shop. Fingerprints, forms, passport photos are done at the time of purchase all for FREE. We know how valuable your time is and we love people buying NFA products because we believe they are very beneficial to the shooter. Oakland Tactical will make buying any NFA item the easiest process of any firearm dealer in Southeastern Michigan. After all we do all of the work!
