Changing residences and the NFA Login/Join

I have two SBRs and a suppressor on a trust. My son and I are the co-trustees. The address on the trust is here in WV.

I did a quick search here and on the BATFE website. I also shot an as-yet-unreplied-to email to the BATFE.

In October I plan to head off to Texas. Can anyone give me an idea of what I need to do or who I can ask about legally taking my NFA stuff with me?

Thanks in advance.

Fill out 5320.20 for a permanent inter-state move

https://www.atf.gov/resource-c...320-20pdf-0/download

Whenever I've done it, if put a move time window in the block 3 (dates of transit) and mode was personal vehicle.

Takes a couple of weeks to get back, pretty straightforward.

Rhino, in the event I elect to leave the stuff with my son (who is on the trust but lives elsewhere in West Virginia), do I need to do the 5320.20 as well? Or only for out-of-state moves?

Technically this form is only for inter-state (out of state moves). For intra-state moves (staying in the state), TECHNICALLY the NFA just needs 'notification', ie you don't need their permission.

In the past when doing in intra-state move, I just sent them a basic letter "Hey, XYZ NFA items have moved from here to here". For awhile they took those but then started sending those letter back saying "Fill out a 5320.20 to reduce our paperwork burden". Which is stupid a fuck since the title of the for stays "Interstate", not "Intrastate".

I filled it the 5320.20 for them, however in Block 5 I put "For NOTIFICATION ONLY of an INTRA-STATE Move, approval not required", since you don't need their approval to move intra-state.

It came back approved (of course, as they all do unless you are moving to a state that has weird NFA laws).

Hope that helps you figure out a path forward.

Yeah, it does. Thanks. I have this feeling I'm gonna be saddling my son with this things and the paperwork. I didn't take my NFA stuff into consideration when I decided on the RV retirement. LOL

After reading your post it made me wonder. I sent them a notification letter several years ago when I did an in-state move and never received anything back from them. I was wondering if the 5320.20 was something new they were asking for? All this time I have just "assumed" they received and updated my info. In the past when you just sent in a move update did they respond back to you?

Also of note, you do not have to fill out the 5320.20 for the suppressor, just the SBRs.



Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

I would receive a response like 12-18 months later, "thank you for writing the NFA branch...".

Last time I moved 4-5 years ago they did the whole "fill out a 5320.20" for an in-state move. Maybe it was a one time thing, IDK.

What, if anything, would I need to do for the suppressor?

Nothing.
