    Howdy folks. Being a firearms enthusiast in the military poses many problems for me. Today's question is about NFA Items kept in my home state while I am elsewhere. If I were to purchase an NFA item, would it be legal for me to put it in a safe deposit box while I'm gone? What about keeping it at my parents' house (my father is a LEO if that helps any).

    The only problem I see would be if there's a law against bringing them into the bank.

    And that, of course, would be a state law.

    The bank may object. There may be a list of what is allowed/forbidden in the box. IIRC, the previous box I used didn't allow firearms (not explicitly, but it was pretty darn clear).

    The bank has no idea what's in the box. The NFA branch of the BATFE recommended to me using a safe deposit box in just this way when I was moving and the interstate forms hadn't cleared yet.

    If kept at another residence, it would either need to be in a locked case to which only you hold the key, or a combination which only you know.
