Top Myths of Class 3 Items
Here are the top myths about class 3 items clarified:
MYTH: Class 3 items are illegal to own.
FACT: These items are 100% legal for most people to own. Although there is some additional paperwork, if you can own a regular firearm, you most likely are qualified to own a Class 3 item as well. The minimum age is 21 years old.
MYTH: You have to wait over a year to be approved.
FACT: Previously, the ATF approval process of class 3 items has extended beyond a year. However, things have significantly sped up and approvals have been reported to be in the range of 4-6 months with some coming back as quickly as 3 months! **
MYTH: You need a legal trust, license, or corporation to own a class 3 item.
FACT: Class 3 items can be registered to you, as an individual. No license, trust, or corporation is needed. You don't even need a concealed weapons permit.
MYTH: The government makes it impossible to get a class 3 item with tons of complicated paperwork and expenses.
FACT: Yes, the process is more onerous than buying a regular firearm, but it is not impossible. There are a couple of additional forms to fill out (which we do for you!), fingerprinting (which we do for you in store!), and passport photos (yup, we do that too!).* We walk you through the whole process and make it as painless as possible.
