What is a GunDocx® gun trust?

Simply put, a gun trust is a legal entity that makes it easier to acquire, use, and eventually distribute firearms to the people you choose if you die or become incapacitated. The National Firearms Act (NFA) regulates the possession, use, and transfer of several different types of weapons. These weapons are commonly referred to as “Title II” weapons and include machine guns, short-barreled rifles and shotguns, suppressors, destructive devices, and Any Other Weapons (AOWs).
