Over the past several weeks I have received several inquires regarding evacuation with Machine Guns or other NFA firearms. While I always recommend obtaining Form 20 approvals for all NFA firearms in advance for each state you may travel to in the next year, sometimes this does not happen or could not happen because of timing.
I have good news for those of you who did not obtain Form 20’s in advance and are evacuating because of a named storm, in this case IRMA.
I just got off the phone with ATF who told me to prepare a Form 20 email it to NFAFAX@aft.gov Attn Chuck RE Hurricane IRMA and they will get it and process it ASAP and that while you may not get it back before you evacuate all that is required it to submit it before you evacuate. This only applies to those who are evacuating. for instructions on preparing a form 20 see https://www.GunTrustLawyer.com/form20.html
