What reason are people putting on their form 4 for a suppressor? I have always put collector of firearms for SBR but I didn't know it that is also ok for a suppressor.

Mine says "Any and all legal uses"

"All Lawful purposes"

Because I went the Trust route, I put "Asset to the Trust"

For suppressors I put "hearing protection". For weapons I put "recreational shooting, training, and defense". (I may change that to S&W's new tagline "safety, security, protection, and sport".)

I'm not sure if it was on a SBR or suppressor, but I saw one that said, "Zombies."

Could have been shopped, but it was approved.

ETA: Found a copy. It was for an SBR so never mind.

Thanks everyone for the fast response, the forms went out today and now the wait begins.

I always put " for investment and enhancement of personal collection" I don't think they even worry about what it says there, or what you write check or money order out to. They seem to approve them all (with in reason, and cash anything!)

Better double check in NC the ONLY reason you can put is for research and development pursuant to NC general statute blah blah blah

I know there is no reason to worry, but i had a dealer fill out that blank for me.
they put "collection"

I was kind of upset for a while. I mean, i WILL hunt deer with my SBS if i get it in time for this fall.
Can you see the game warden asking about my evil shotgun?
"Son...says here you got this for your collection. you cant use it for hunting..."

i know, lame, but i wanted it to say "any lawful purpose" like i always put.

If it is legal for hunting, the purpose stated on the form is not a reason to deny the right to use it. You are NOT limited to what you put on the form. I HAVE read a thread here where a poster said his "All Lawful Purposes" reason was kicked back because it wasn't detailed enough. They wanted him to spell out the lawful purposes he intended.

"investment and collecting" even if a silencer isnt considered a good monetary investment its not illegal to invest in other things that can loose value. So no one can argue with that explination and collecting is pretty self explanitory.

Missed that one. I put it on both of mine and they both processed without kickback or delay.

He was probably from NC, which has a state law that provides that "weapons of mass destruction" (i.e. NFA) are prohibited in NC unless used for research purposes.

I put "to add to my collection" but I've read on here several times that people put "chicks dig it". don't think it really matters
