Well, I'm moving in with a couple semi-invalid relatives (household is going to be my aunt, my mother and myself), and 594 now imposes a special kind of nuisance. It seems the only way to share "legal access" is to establish a trust, which gets expensive fast--the alternate option that I could see would be to purchase three identical blanks, and each of us build our own AR lowers, then if push meets shove challenge the prosecutor with "all three of us know our way around a mill and drill-press, the burden of proof is on YOU to prove that the Designated Shooter wasn't the one who manufactured the receiver and assembled the firearm since there's no requirement to mark firearms built for personal use unless you decide to transfer them--hell, even WE don't know which is which!" Additional fun on trusts... the AFL factor. I'd need ability for individual gun owners to enter or withdraw our weapons from the trust at will, ditto to add or remove additional trustees. I have two very close Foreign National friends--my gal's Canadian, and I have a young lady friend from Germany who thinks if she had a way to get it home legally building her own AR here would be fun--that want me to teach them to shoot someday, so they're candidates for addition to the trust. At least we won't have NFA stuff to fight with, which should trim the PITA down a little. Here's all a gun shop I contacted re an M1 Carbine I was looking at could suggest on the subject when I asked them for advice as an aside: Anybody out there in Washingtonistan (aka Burn-in-Hellifornia Del Norte) have experience with trusts or Alien Firearms License matters that might help me shape my discussions with the Ambulance Chasers about keeping my family and friends from being made examples of?
