    So it is my understanding with the new SBR law you can't let people borrow your sbr.

    However, I am curious if I let someone shoot my sbr under my direct supervision if that is considered against the law. Must I be the only one who can ever touch my SBR? I'm curious as my friends usually tag along when I go shooting and I'm usually the one with the guns.

    I've had trouble finding an answer so I would appreciate the help!

    Thanks everyone.

    It's an NFA item, like a suppressor. Suppressor's are shot by other people all the time. As long as they are not a felon, or otherwise prohibited from owning a firearm you are good to go.

    As long as you are there, sharing is OK. You can't loan NFA items to other people to use on their own. The item must "remain under your control".

    but what if you have a trust. Anyone in the trust is able to have NFA items within the trust. That is my understanding

    Yes in addition to the grantor, any of the trustees named in the trust may legally be in possession of the NFA item(s).

    Provided that the items in question are also registered to that same trust.
