    I currently own NFA stuff through a revocable living trust.

    Can I apply for and receive an 03 FFL on behalf of that same trust? Will this cause legal problems?

    My initial hunch is that yes I can and that no, there won't be legal problems, but I wanted to hear from someone who was already a veteran of the C&R system.

    Of course, the other problem is that I don't see a benefit to filing as a trust instead of an individual.

    I've heard that a trust can't get an 03.

    A nice benefit would be if your trust was an 03, you could transfer C&R NFA stuff interstate without needing a local class 3 dealer.

    I know there was a guy on the C&R forum at ar15.com that tried to get a c&r under a trust a month or two ago. I don't remember what the outcome was but you might check there.

    That is correct, because a trust isn't a "person" as far as 18 USC 921(a)(1) is concerned:

    So then since an 03 cannot be obtained by a trust, can LawBot get one as a private individual?

    Yes, there is a check box for "individual" on the application for a C&R license (Form 7CR).

    Thanks guys, I am sending it in as an individual. I'm not planning any NFA C&R purchases so it isn't a big deal. I would love a delisle carbine but as far as I know, all the real ones were destroyed after the war.
