Bronze

Designed by attorneys specializing in firearms and trust law, it is intended for the client who wants to obtain an NFA firearm with minimum hassle or worry but also wants some level of planning for what to do with the trust firearms, should you die or become incapacitated. It’s still budget-friendly and provides a firearms-specific solution.

Bronze is a clearly written, purpose-built and streamlined trust.   The trust is expressly written with a minimal feature set and without opportunity for customization but it still includes guidance for how the Successor Trustee should distribute the Title II firearms held by the trust.

The Bronze trust includes a Schedule B where you can name the person you want to take over as successor trustee if you die or become incapacitated. The Successor Trustee will have the legal authority to transfer the Title II weapons out of the trust to the people you have indicated you want to have them should you die or become incapacitated. (After carefully following the Trust directions and documenting the transfer with BATFE of course).

The Bronze trust also includes a Schedule C where you can list the names of the people you want the trust property distributed to and what percentage of the trust property they should receive. i.e. 50% of trust assets to my daughter Annie Oakley, and 50% of trust assets to my friend Buffalo Bill. This level of planning is better than the Bronze trust because it would keep the trust assets completely out of probate.

While Bronze is not a full-featured estate plan like our Silver Edition Gun Trust, for the price it is far superior to any conventional trust since it protects your use of NFA firearms.  NFA firearms are easy to mishandle when you attempt to share them with others.  Bronze is a far superior option for NFA firearms than a conventional living trust, whether generic or attorney-prepared, in our experience since it was designed for the purpose and is firearms-specific.

Best of all, when the time comes to upgrade to a Silver Edition Gun Trust, we will credit the fee paid for your Bronze Edition Trust in full towards the upgrade.

Silver

Our Silver Edition Gun Trust is our most popular trust. It provides you the ability to update schedules and certain benefits planning without additional attorney fees, and adds a number of useful features to protect you and those you engage in shooting sports with for a very reasonable fee, the equivalent of about one to two hours of most attorneys’ time. Best of all, it is written by leading gun trust attorneys, and an attorney is available to help you should you have questions or gun-related legal issues.

Silver is designed for the firearms collector who understands the value of proper planning when dealing with NFA items (suppressors, etc.) as well as non-NFA items (regular rifles pistols and shotguns).  Our trust system is designed to protect everyone that may come in contact with the collection and to avoid the likelihood of an “accidental felony”.

Silver is designed to own, allow sharing, and eventually distribute your firearms whether NFA or conventional firearms.  The trust contains benefits provisions to protect those you engage in firearms activities with to ensure that both friends and family members can be covered and protected by the terms of the trust.

When it eventually comes time for a successor trustee to take over and manage the collection, the trust system provides guidance in plain language meant to help anyone, not just somebody who knows guns.  The trust strips away many powers which are included in traditional or generic revocable living trusts that would allow a trustee to commit accidental felonies.

Further, the trust provides detailed guidance on how both NFA and non-NFA items must be transferred.  A personal property memorandum is incorporated which allows the client to make a list leaving specific firearms to specific individuals.  This list can be updated without attorney involvement at any time for any reason.  And, items not specifically left to someone are provided for by percentage bequests to one or more persons or even a charity, so that the entire collection is properly distributed.

This trust is an excellent choice for the majority of our clients.  It provides unparalleled and specific protection for firearms when compared to any generic revocable living trust; in fact it has many features unknown to other firearms-specific trusts.

If you have questions or want to learn more, please contact us or schedule a consultation.  If the Silver Edition Gun Trust does not provide all the benefits you require, consider the Gold Edition Gun Trust.
