Do I Need a Gun Trust?

By Barry Peters | Jun 24, 2019

Do I need a gun trust?

Most people don’t. But if you have certain types of weapons or explosives, you may need one.

Federal law requires special permits for certain firearms and materials. Those include:

  • Sawed off rifles & shotguns (with barrels less than 18” long)
  • Fully automatic weapons (multiple rounds fired from single trigger pull)
  • Silencers and suppressors
  • Hand grenades and other explosive devices

For those who own any of these items, a Gun Trust is the best method to pass them to your heirs.

But, for the rest of you that just own garden-variety firearms, no special Gun Trust is needed.

I was completely satisfied with the entire process. In a few short weeks I had a completed trust tailored to my specific needs. It was so easy! The timeline and costs were stated up front, and every aspect was handled with the utmost professionalism, what more could one ask for? The website is extremely helpful. 5 stars to Barry Peters!

Thank you very much for your help with the closing of Mom’s house, it is now scheduled to close Monday. You were the only person that said we can beat all of this. Other attorneys told us to walk away. We put our faith in you Mr. Peters and came out on top. Thank you again. Michael E.
