    I am working on my Form 1 and I have hit another snag; how do I answer this:
    form1.jpg

    The real answer is "for fun" but somehow I don't think that is what the ATF wants.

    Should I say "to replicate the Mk. 18 rifle used by the US Military as close as possible"? - which is also true.

    Or should I say something along the lines of "target shooting" "recreation" etc?

    "To enhance historically-relevant firearms collection and to use for any lawful recreational purposes"? That's probably about what I would write.

    I always just say "To add to my collection and all other lawful purposes".

    I've always used "for all lawful purposes" and never had a problem.

    There's no particular "right" answer, but there's apparently wrong ones, since people have gotten forms kicked back for answers like "for the coming zombie apocalypse."

    Keep it short and simple.

    "All lawful purposes" works and is safe.

    I know a few who got "Zombies" approved before ATF started kicking them back.

    When my dad started buying full-autos in the early 80s, he jokingly put down "investment" and then felt silly for sending it in that way... ridiculous how true that became because of the Hughes amendment.

    I've put several things - "shooting/collecting", "all lawful purposes" or "investment" as well. From my understanding, as long as it's legal and not too much tongue-in-cheek, it doesn't matter much.

    State of Tennessee accepts NFA firearms as long as they are properly registered on the NFA registry and all federal laws have been complied with.

    State of Tennessee also recognizes one of the legal reasons to own a gun as "curio or ornament".

    I wonder if "curio or ornament"--making a replica of collectible curiosity firearm, say a De Lisle carbine--would be a reason acceptable to the ATF on a Form 1?

    In the case of manufacturing your own silencer a very truthful answer would be "significant cost reduction when compared to commercially sold units". I wonder if that would pass muster?

    "All lawful purposes". It covers you at the range and it will cover you if you use the gun in self-defense.

    Don't try to get cute with the reason (such as by mentioning "zombies"). The ATF examiners don't have a sense of humor. Just stick with "all lawful purposes."

    " 'cause I already dun it" is always a classic :evil:

    Any Lawful Purpose is what I put on my SBR's form 1.
