    So 8 months later I am in the stamp club!

    Jeanie at NWA told me a lot of people will scan and shrink the Form 4 and laminated it, that way the original stays at home in the safe. That is a great idea but how small can I make it? What have you all done with your copies?

    I just make 5 copies, keep one in my stock, maybe one in my pack.

    I just keep two full size copies that are not laminated in my range bag. Ive seen some people shrink it down to a credit card size. As long as it readable.

    That's a good idea taprackngo, I'll keep one in my bag at all times.. So I'm gonna make one at 50% for the bag, and another at 30% to keep with the can.

    Here's another question, has anyone here actually been hassled at a range to show paperwork?

    Ive never had a problem at Tri County. Its non of their business, the only person that can ask to see the tax forms is the ATF. There is a couple threads on here that talk about problems on other clubs and how they fixed the issue.

    A few threads down. I keep at least two copies of each on my person when I leave the house with an NFA item.

    I put a MagPul grip with a storage compartment on my AR. It hold copies of the F1 for the rifle itself (SBR) and the F4 for the suppressor that hangs off the end. It's a tight fit, but you can get both of them in there.

    A copy is a copy. Keep a PDF on your phone.....

    Yes - in the grip works great.

    If you have an SBR with suppressor you can have page 1 on both on each side - have one page that way. There is nothing on page 2 required to prove you are the person who should be in possession.

    As a backup, I always carry all of mine in a manila folder in the trunk.

    Yup, I have a 1:1 copy in the "waterproof" storage compartment of the foregrip on my SBR'd AK/Draco... works great.

    This is a good idea. Just email it to your self.
