I get everything except this, how can I legally transfer the pistol-gripped shotgun, from me, to a trust, LLC, or Corp., with out the use of a FFL 01.
You notarize the transfer of assets page with the gun going to the trust. you are the Grantor and Trustee, therefore you have "possession" of it, and have authority over it in the name of the trust. There is no fingerprints belonging to the Trust, so how would you imagine doing a firearm transfer via FFL01 to it? That is the beauty of the Trust, just you , paper, and a notary and you are making asset changes as it should be in this god given world.
Too bad most things in life are not this easy....
