    Sheriff Jesse Wolfe, Woodville, Tyler Co

    Unfortunately Sheriff Jesse didn't get the democratic nomination. The person that did, Constable Terry Riley, is reported to have said he will not sign a form 4. The Republican nominee, David Hennigan, is an unknown on this. Guess I'll be finding soon enough...

    Anyone in Dallas/Plano/Richardson area? I've been doing everything as a corporate transfer, but it might be nice to do some in my name if possible.

    1. Greg Hamilton, Sheriff, Travis County, Texas. He has signed off for all Title II firearms.

    3. Allen Bridges, Sheriff, Hays County. His predecessor (Don Montague) has signed for Machine Guns,
    SBR, SBS, AOW, and suppressors, there is currently no reason to believe he will not do otherwise.

    5. William Elsbury, Sheriff, Blanco County. He has signed for Machine Guns. Unknown about the rest.

    6. David Morgan, Chief of Police, City of Georgetown. He has signed for suppressors. Unknown about

    Benny Parkey, Sheriff of Denton Co has signed two Form 4's for me with no problems. I got in touch with him via e-mail on the county's website. He does a background check and takes about a month to get the forms done.

    Waylan Rhodes, Chief of Police of Little Elm, TX (my home town) refused to sign the form whenever I contacted him via e-mail.

    Benny Parkey will sign any NFA Form. 2 weeks turn around time as he copies and does his own checks.

    DA Paul Johnson and Denton Chief of Police will not sign.

    As far as I know, there are no CLEOs in the DFW area who will sign. My last 3 Form 4s were signed by a federal judge (who does not want his name spread around), and that was quite a few years ago.

    Lots of CLEOs sign in DFW Area. Several have already been named. Dallas County is the only one that is a problem.

    I guess I just don't realize where a lot of those places are. I live in Dallas County, as do probably at least 1/3 of all people in the DFW area. In fact, I had been under the impression that Tarrant County and Collin County also refused to sign Form 4s. Are the CLEOs you refer to the local small town police chiefs?

    so is everyone going the trust and/or incorporated route?

    I thought I could get away from some reason that SBR registration was different and need to put a stock on my Sig 556 pistols....

    I went the trust route cause I was tired of messing with scaredy pants CLEOS that are worried what the media will do if they find out about them signing after I've gone insane and killed 10,000 people..

    My xfer ffl did it for me and it works great.. My SBR stamp should be here in a week or so.. Woulda been here a week or so back but I had a couple errors on the form...

    Just a FYI to save anyone wasted time. If you want to do a multi caliber AR put just 1 choice in the space for Caliber.. Any other choices you can put in part H under other info... I know some folks havent had any probs but the ATF person working on mine wanted it that way and sent it back to me to fix..

    Does anyone know about Fort Bend County (Milton Wright)? I have heard that he will sign on a case by case basis, even if you pass the background check. Not sure if this is right.

    Ed Cain, Hardin Co Sheriff will not sign, unless you are part of the good ol' boy network or he is up for re-election.

    The Sheriff Dee Anderson of Tarrant County is totally pro gun and will go through the NFA proceedure without batting an eye...you just call his secretary and go in person to drop your paperwork off to her and they mail it back to you. No muss, fuss , or bs..

    But in Texas a CLEO being a butthead will not slow you down so much as one day...get a revokable trust set up and take them totally out of the process.
    Its no longer up to them and thier personal opinions.
