    Nothing, but the CLEO letter requirement is an unfunded initiative by the BATFE and there's no requirement for the sheriff to do it. When you're expecting a neutral or anti-gun politician to sign their name on something authorizing you to have a highly restricted item, most feel they have a right to set conditions on the use of their name where it isn't required that they give it. That's why the Trust route is the only way to go. You can have more than one person on the Trust and you're not subject to an arbitrary approval.

    Is the Sheriff the only one the BATFE will accept a signature from, or are there others that theoretically would qualify (assuming they would actually sign)?

    I'd guess if you're tight with Pres Obama you could probably get the paper pushed through no problem :)

    Sheriff or DA if you're out of the city limits. If you're in the limits you can add the police chief to that list. I bet Gov. Fallin would work and maybe even the state attorney general.

    Usually a District Court judge will work as well. Regardless, a Trust is easier than any of the above.

    Just to be clear, by signing a form 4, a LEO does not "authorize" anything. He/She is simply signing a statement that says he knows of no reason that the person requesting the transfer can't legally own the item.

    Unfortunately, many LEOs seem to think they should control who has these items.

    I have heard talk in the NFA community that the LEO signature requirement maybe going away.
