Speaking of going Corporate , is it legit for a corporate entity to get a collectors license in it's name to acquire C&R firearms (like Thompsons or other Class 3) as assets ? What about Form 1 "making" ?
I live in Missouri, where Class 3 possession requires a federal license. The collector tag qualifies.

Hawkeye_Joe,

Congratulations!

anticus,

Yes, to a corporate C&R. But first make sure you understand ALL the rules. If you have a cooperative CLEO, most feel that individual C&R is the best route.

Thanks, Merry.

One reason I'm leaning corporate is that my wife, as an officer of the company, could have legal access to the firearms and would have a simpler time disposing of the collection if anything ever happened to me.
Where can I go to find out all the rules ?

thnx

anticus and any other interested parties,

There used to be a Website dedicated to C&R - try a search. If that fails, ask on the subguns NFA discussion forum.

Good luck.

Atticus,
I'm in Missouri, I have my C&R registered in the name of my corporation. No problems here.
Transfers are quick too.

tongue.gif Oh .. I picked it up yesterday and shot 90 rounds last night behind the house.. it's a real beauty.. the stock has a burl to it like you would expect from a nice Winchester or Remington Sporting Arm..no scratches or too many dings in the forearm.. ( it did at one time have a reenforcing band on it) The park is rich and looks damn new.. cool.gif I'll post some pics when I get the digital camera back up to the house..

I'll be stripping it down completely tonight.. I took it down to field strip and there was a lot of grit in the action of course it came outta Texas so that could be why.. laugh.gif
