    So I'm working on obtaining my first NFA item (a 223 suppressor). In the future I plan on getting some actual select fire weapons (money permitting).

    Here's my question. If I live in MT and want to take my NFA items on a vacation to UT, do I have to notify ATF or something? I travel to UT about 4 times a year to shoot with family, and I'm wondering what will need to be done in order to take NFA stuff on these trips.

    TIA

    You don't need to notify them about the can, but you do if you take an SBR, SBS, or MG.

    From ATF's web page:

    Wait, FFLs don't have to notify ATF?

    Is that for general FFLs or only CL3s?

    If you are licensed to manufacture or sell (deal in) NFA weapons, you don't need permission. You just have to abide by the state laws where you are going through and to.

    Example: I'm in the process of getting licensed as a firearm manufacturer with an SOT class 2, NFA manufacturer. Let's say that I am an 07/02. This means I can make a machine gun, take it to Wisconsin, and take it back into Michigan and I don't need to alert or notify or ask permission from anyone.

    Pretty sure the law states NFA dealers or manufacturers. I think normal type 01 FFL dealers need permission, but this is a tricky area as they aren't licensed to deal in NFA unless they are an 01 FFL with an 03 SOT (NFA dealer). You'd have to get the SOT class for it to apply, from what I've been reading.

    freakshow - dang! I'm working on 01 FFL and thought I'd get out of asking uncle BATFs permission everytime I travelled to visit family. Thanks for the info though. CL3 is a little out of league for me unfortunately.

    If you don't mind me asking, what do you plan on making?

    You can put a 365-day time period on your Form 5320.20, such as 5/1/2008 through 4/30/2009.
