I am getting ready to submit my ATF Form 1 so I can build a short barreled FAL. One of the questions on Form 1 (4i) is "State why you intend to make a firearm" My planned answer is "For deer and hog hunting in thick brush habitat. A short barreled rifle makes hunting in this type of habitat possible"

Any suggestions on how best to answer this question? I don't know if it makes a difference or not, but I am submitting this with application under the name of my trust.

Thanks Guys!

How about "Historical Authenticity"

I always put down:

"all lawful purposes".

You don't have one for your collection.

Cuz you want to help with the deficit by paying more taxes. Or SBRs look cool.

All lawful purposes. I could imagine a definition of a rifle in a state code including a 16" barrel and a statement in the game codes that specified rifles, shoguns pistols, bow and arrows. I have no idea of whether there are such rules in your state, but it seems possible to me that SBR hunting might trigger more questions than you want to deal with.

Yeah, I think you may have a point there. I am going with jaykden's "all lawful purposes."

My Form says that my reasonable necessity is: Investment and Collection.

Collection and Investment. That is all I ever put down. Never had a problem.

Won't you feel foolish if you put down "investment and collection" and then end up actually needing it for a "Zombie Apocalypse"?:D

Don't get cute.

The accepted correct answer is "all lawful purposes."

You mean, "Because I can", doesn't cover it?
