I would like to begin the process of having a suppressor transferred to me. I already have the Form 4 in hand, what next? Go on the assumption that the CLEO will not sign off on the form.

thanks in advance!

I believe incorporation is your only alternative. The can will be "owned" by the corp, not you personally.

Well, you can always become a Class III dealer.

Is this a joke? Can any old joe get such a license? If my county CLEO wont sign form4's off for us, is there any chance in hell of getting to be a c3 dealer?

Contact a feela known as "WA Tom" luthier4@attbi.com, as WA has some strange laws in regards to suppressors.

Class III is Federal Government approved.

The 'incorporation route' is the last resort, where you could start a profit or non-profit corporation that would act as a holding entity for your suppressors. In WA, a non-profit is pretty cheap, and little paperwork is needed.

However, keeping a corporation alive is a serious undertaking, where you have to pay taxes and file the paperwork each year. Not taking it serious and not keeping up with the paperwork could cause the company to 'die' and then YOU are in possession of a weapon registered to YOU not the company.

If you're in WA, ask the guys at Wade's or other CL3 dealers in WA about how it works... Any good NFA dealer can tell you the score.

What kind of can are you getting?

Ok where in Wa do you live? If you are in eastern Washington then good chances for a sign off. If you are in western Wa the closer to Seattle you are the less chance to get a sign off. You can incorporate and you can bypass all sign offs. Now for the crappy part. You can own a can in Wa but you can not shoot a firearm with a suppressor on it. Weird law I know but that is the way it works in WA.

I am not already incorporated...

So which is better, For-profit or Not-for-profit corporations?

Is one easier to maintain or cheaper to maintain than another?

GardenWeasel, good link. Lots of info. Thanks.
