A gun trust is a revocable living trust which is created by the Grantor who may revoke or amend the trust anytime. The Grantor may also serve as trustee but will also require either a co-trustee or successor trustee or both. The trustee’s duty is to manage the weapons transferred to the trust and upon the death of the Grantor, distributes the weapons to the named beneficiaries in the trust. There are no annual fees due and no state or federal tax or filing requiremrnts. The trustee cannot also serve as a beneficiary.
Setting up a gun trust is easy and can be done over the phone or by email. The charge is $225.00 for most gun trusts. Conversations with the attorney and staff is CONFIDENTIAL. In the future, if you need to change co-trustees, beneficiaries or need language changed in the trust we will charge $50.00 for the modification. If you acquire additional class 3 weapons you can simply add them to the schedule form attached to the trust. The gun trust will remain in effect until the grantor’s demise or incapacity upon which the named beneficiaries will take over possession and control. The trustee must ensure that a copy of the gun trust accompanies the weapon at all times.
