I know full auto (collectability) and silencers (target shooting without hearing protection) but what the heck do I put down for a SBR? What has worked for you guys?

TIA

"The pursuit of happiness."


Seriously.  Pretty much anything will fly with BATF/NFA so long as it isn't illegal or hint at illegality or insanity.  "Because the voices in my head told me to." is never a good option.  "Because the neighbor's dog is driving me nuts." is similarly not advisable.  I know one guy who put "EXCITEMENT!!!" as his reason for a 20mm Lahti anti-tank gun.  It passed.  I have heard that "because chicks dig it" will also pass.  Just remember if you get too cute and it gets denied, its going to set you back 3-4 months.

"Investment, collection, and target shooting." is a standard response.

"shooting purposes"

"all legal purposes"

if you are in a shall issue state, it doesnt matter what you put down.  You can put down, "go piss up a rope"....they still have to issue your stamp as long as you meet the other criteria.

"legal recreational purposes" would work too.

I put professional use on all my Form 4s and Form 1's.

I also include a copy of my creds, even though im purchasing/manufacturing for personal use.  Turn around time from check cashed to approval is aprox 38 days

I put "to further enhance my firearms collection".

Must have worked. Going on 3 months, check cashed over a month ago.

Thanks for the serious responses- and the not-so-serious ones, too. They're funny as shit.

To make Fienstien wet the bed at night, and add to the collection befor someone like Hilldyke makes president.

Or

I wanted that gun used in Heat.

ARin had the funniest one....Go piss up a rope....... I almost fell out of my chair when I read that.  In my mind I could see the ATF agent processing the form and reading the reason out loud before the board....small pause of silence in the room and then they mark the form approved and pick up the next one....



Thanks for the valuble thread guys,

Nevermind they don't use those forms in CA.

I might put "Legal protection should I decide to swap out any barrel combination."

It is your right.  You do not need a reason and you should not have to beg for a permit and/or pay a tax on a right.....

Or how about for investment?
