There are distinct advantages to using a trust. First, you’re not the only one limited to legal use of the items. I set up a trust for my wife, my two adult children, and myself. Any of us can use suppressors owned by the trust. If I die suddenly, the trust remains and the others continue to have access to trust assets. Another benefit is that a trust does not have to go though the hassle of submitting fingerprints, photos, and a signature of the local law-enforcement authority. Trustees are known, named, and have to be legal, they just avoid the unnecessary red-tape runaround.
