2. BATF Form 4. You use this form when you buy a legally registered silencer from a dealer or manufacturer. They usually will provide you with this form. Filing it transfers registration and ownership of the silencer from the previous owner to you. You must include your photograph, fingerprints, a local law-enforcement signature, and payment of a $200 transfer tax.

3. FBI Form FD-258. This is the universal fingerprint card that your local or state police personnel will use to record your fingerprints for the BATF files in Washington. Supposedly, each applicant's prints are checked, but I know a retired FBI employee who told me that it is rarely done. "Not nearly enough time or people or, frankly, concern" is how he put it to me.

Those are the forms. Now, here is the proper drill that you should use if you want to be all tickety-boo legal and have that homemade silencer registered with the BATF.

Before building the silencer, fill out Form 1 after you get your picture and fingerprints. Get the endorsement signature of your favorite local law-enforcement official. The feds like chiefs of police, county sheriffs, chief prosecutors, or their designated minions to sign for this. Obviously, ask someone you know and who knows you; it's easier that way.

If they ask you what in hell you want a silencer for, remember that they are not there to give you permission to own the silencer. Some local official's personal prejudices about gun and silencer control is not neces-

ATF Form 4 ICH».4I i7-esi sarily the law. You are going through a legal process here, not getting permission. What the local officer is signing and attesting to is that you are not of bad character and that he has no information that would lead him to believe you would use the silencer illegally. He is also attesting that your ownership of the silencer doesn't violate any local laws.

This official does not incur any legal liability by signing this form for you. On the other hand, no law requires him to sign it, either. So as I say, make friends with someone in the upper echelon of your town or county police department. Remember, this official must have law-enforcement jurisdiction within your area of legal residence.

Next, write a check for $200 to the Department of Treasury to pay your tax. Fill out rest of the form and sign it. Make at least one photocopy of the completed paperwork, then mail the two originals to the address indicated on the form.

If you're buying someone else's already registered silencer, you go through the exact same procedure except you use a BATF Form 4. Everything else is the same. In either case, you will probably hear from BATF in two or three months.

Silencer fans, that's all you need to do to have your very own legally registered silencer.

ABOUT fifty years ago, when the subject of English furniture first began to be studied and to be written about, it was divided conveniently into four distinct types. One writer called his books on the subject The Age of Oak, The Age of Walnut, The Age of Mahogany and The Age of Satinwood. It is not really quite as simple as that, for each of the so-called Ages overlaps the others and it is quite impossible to lagt down strict dates as to when any one timber was introduced or when it finally, if ever, went out of favour.
