I started this thread just to be kind of an "unofficial" document of which CLEOs in which counties will sign off on ATF form 4 for transfer of NFA firearms (machine guns, suppressors, sawed off rifles and shotguns, ect) I purchased a suppressor about 2 weeks ago from Autrey's Armory. While I was waiting for them to mail me the form 4, I though I would call the CLEO's in my county and find out who would sign. Carroll County Sheriff Terry Langley: Signs them all the time, nothing short of routine. Just bring the form4 in and give it the sheriff's secretary, Ms. Hightower. The sheriff usually signs and returns the form within a few days. Carroll County District Attorney Peter Skandalakis: In his 20+ years of being a D.A., he has never had anyone ask him to sign off on a form 4. He said that he is not opposed to me owning a suppressor, but was kind of curious as to why I wanted one. I told him it was because I wanted to target practice in my back yard without disturbing the neighbors across the street. He asked if I was or has been convicted of a crime and wanted to know if he was supposed to run a background check on me prior to signing. I told him that I believe that he did had to run a GCIC check on me prior to signing, but the NICS stuff would be left up to the feds. He asked me to bring the form to him when I got it so he could see what it "looks like", in the meantime he would speak with the sheriff and find out what the SOP is with form 4's. City of Carrollton PD Cheif Joel Richards: Cheif Richards returned my call, He was unclear as to what I was asking him about, so he needed clarification. After I explained to him what I needed to have signed and why, he said that he has never had anyone to ask him to sign a form 4. He said that he has a buddy that is also a LEO over at the sheriff's office and that he would call him and ask him since he (his buddy) owns some NFA stuff. I recieved a call back from Mr. Richards about 15 minutes later. He told me that his buddy said for me to come down to the sheriff's office and have Sheriff Langley sign off on it. He said that Sheriff Langley gets about half a dozen or so requests each year for a form 4 sign off and he has no problem doing it. On a more interesting note, the saleperson at Autrey's Armory told me that if I lived in either Fulton or Clayton County not to bother with the sheriff's there, they will refuse to sign form 4's and that both sheriffs are opposed to simple civilians owning guns, much less NFA firearms.
