Hi everyone,

I’ve been reading all the recent links about establishing LLC’s, trusts, and non-stock corps for the purchase of NFA items and while there is a ton of great info here I would still like to talk to a lawyer about all the pros, cons, and startup and maintenance costs of each choice.

My question is, does anyone know of, or retain the services of a lawyer in the Northern Virginia (Fairfax / Arlington) area who is well established in matters regarding firearms? I’m assuming any lawyer can answer my questions but I guess I was thinking that someone that does this routinely would be more practiced, through, and require less time to figure things out.

Also, if I wanted to have a list of questions to take to the lawyer about firearms in general, does anyone have some good suggestions?

For example:

1) It seems that there might be other legal entities that may purchase NFA items. If so, do they provide any other facets to consider?

2) In regard to concealed carry, I seem to recall reading somewhere that signs didn’t have legal precedence in Virginia. Is this true?

Questions like that. I know I have some more that I just can’t think of right now, but I’m sure I’ll remember them eventually.

Anyway, any help or suggestions in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

He helped a friend of mine setup his corporation for NFA. The other person to try is the former lawer for Interarms. I just don't have his contact information.

Thanks dayglo,

This guy is just down the street from me. I'll try looking up the lawyer from Interarms.

I'm not an attorney, but since none jumped in here I'll lend my 2 pennies. If you carry concealed somewhere that's posted and get noticed, they can ask you to leave. If you do not leave, they can have you charged with trespass.

I do not believe there are any "teeth" to the signs that some places post. They are akin to me putting a sign up in my front yard that says "no tennis shoes" or "no blue cars" - it doesn't make it a crime.

+1 on Halbrook and Gardiner.

State Sen Ken Cuccinelli's firm is also very good - plus he's one of the guys on our side down at the General Assembly. His office # is 703-255-2747.

This is what the attorney from ILA said in the concealed carry course I attended.
