I think I might want a SBR. Maybe in the future. an XM177E2 clone to be exact.
My problem is I live in Colorado near the Utah boarder. My parents live in Utah near the boarder. My brothers and I kinda use their house as a rally point. consequentially I do a lot of my shooting in Utah.

It is my understanding that I have to get written permission to bring a SBR across state lines. Would I have to get permission every single time I crossed the Utah line?
Or would it be a one time permission slip?

Thanks

It's everytime.

But I have always wondered if you could set a start date of 12-31-09 and a return time of 12-31-10. I have never had a need to have it last longer than one MG shoot, so I haven't actually tried this. You should really call the NFA branch and ask if this is kosher. They might say it's OK. That way, you only have to do it once a year.

Just get a 16" upper for travel.

In some cases you may be able to get a letter good for whole year.
However you slice it, permission letters are teh suk.

Thanks W.E.G,
If I could get annual permission it wouldn't be "so bad". Thanks for the letter reference. I didn't know that you could put a 16" upper on a SBR engraved lower and be legally considered a standard rifle.

I recommend that you put "Multiple" on the Form 1 where they ask for the barrel length.
Some AR15 manufacturers have the word "Multiple" engraved where the caliber of the rifle is to be placed.
