    Does anyone have a link to one of the letters to the ATF regarding this?
    I was looking for an outline.

    Correct ALL of those kind of ATF letters are OPINION letters and are technically only for the person it was written for. It is the OPINION of the person/branch that wrote the letter. It is NOT law but an OPINION. To be law it must go to court and before a judge like TC did many years ago.

    With that said for the most part if you have a letter that means that at the time that letter was written the ATF believed whatever the question was happened to be illegal/legal. The status on these things do change because they are OPINION letters. For the most part you are safe following the direction in the letter.

    Thanks guys, I understand they can change their minds whenever they want but I'd think they'd have to announce it and there would at least be a 15 minute grace period before carting you off to the pen.Since it'd just be an AFG I think I could remove it without it ruining my day.;)
    That was the doc I was looking for but I thought it came with the guys actual letter to them as well. I wanted to see how it was worded. Becasuse I intend to send my own in so I can have a response in my name.
    Any thoughts on how I should word the letter? And do I need to send it to a specific branch or section of the ATF?:thumbup:
