Can anyone point me towards a good tutorial on filing a Form 1? Do you guys recommend filing as an individual or as a Trust and if Trust did you create it yourself or hire a lawyer?
TIA

I think whether or not you want to use a trust comes down to who all lives in your house with access to your NFA guns and who you'd like to share them with. If you're a hermit with no friends and no family, then a trust may not be worth it. If you have a wife with access to your gun safe or some friends you share guns with, then maybe a trust makes sense.

You can make your own trust with a bit of research online and a couple hours. Or you aren't sure about that sort of stuff or too busy, pay $100 from any number of online lawyers and you pretty much get the trust emailed instantly. You just need to sign and have it notarized.

How will those of us who paper filed be notified? Certified Mail, email, telephone call, etc?
Thanks.

You're gonna have a long wait.
The only paper copies you will receive are the ones you print off of the emailed ones from ATF.

I meant is it sent certified mail?
Or am I depending on the competency of a letter carrier to place such precious cargo in the mailbox and hope for the best?

It comes regular mail. Yes, some do get lost in transit.
