    Heading for Amman to teach the Jordanians a thing or two about the way Marine Grunts do business. While gone, can my wife use a general POA to file the paperwork in my name for a suppressor/SBR? I figured why not sit the waiting period out in a place where I have no choice but to wait! Thanks for any help gents

    Why not go the trust route, and have her list you as an agent of the trust?

    ^^^Yep.

    If it was in a trust and she was a co-trustee, she could legally possess without any issues. That's one of the advantages of entity ownership (trust, corp., llc) of NFA items.

    The Law - I think you misunderstand. The OP is asking whether or not his wife can act on his behalf in obtaining a NFA item if she has power of attorney over him while he's out of the country - it's got nothing to do with making her an agent of a trust.

    I merely suggested going the trust route because it's a well known method of going about obtaining NFA items, and likely much simpler than going through process the way the OP is describing.

    I suspect that the point made by The Law is valid.

    He suggests an avenue where both can possess and use the item. She works with local lawyer to set up the trust and purchase the item in his absence. When he returns, he has free use of the item as a designated agent of the trust.

    Yes, thanks. My point was that having a trust would simplify this whole operation. If they had a trust, she could easily add property to the trust without any additional documentation (per the trust) outside of the usual ATF forms.

    Additionally, if she is a co-trustee, she could legally possess the items (also without any additional documentation) in the absence of the trustee in this case.

    However, I don't see why the OP can't submit the paperwork himself. His location has no bearing on the validity of the application.

    That's exactly the point I made as well. Why it bore repeating is a mystery.
