I don't know how many of you folks have gone through the NFA process, I bought a .22 suppressor earlier this year, it was my first one. The main hurdle to the process is getting somebody to sign your paperwork. Yeah you can do the corporate/trust route, or you can be a dealer, but I wanted to see if I could get somebody to sign it first before going that route. An e-mail to the Chief of Police of the suburban north Dallas city I live in got me a quick "No" response, and probably got me put on a list too . But the Sheriff of Denton County was much more understanding. With a background check and about a month's waiting time, Sheriff Benny Parkey signed my Form 4 and then called me when it was ready. I got the impression from many people that actually finding a "public servant" who was willing to participate in this process was rare, especially if you live in a more urban area. I guess for those guys to sign your form, you have to be their cousin or something. So just an FYI, Sheriff Parkey in Denton signs Form 4's for regular people who can pass a background check.
