    Im reading that private transport affects commerce, so falls under purview of nfa( although i fail to see how it affects commerce at all). Am I tracking correctly?
    Correct. The fact that you're (I presume) not making money while using the gun doesn't mean that it doesn't affect interstate commerce. The fact that you bought the gun means it affected interstate commerce, and that gun is affected in perpetuity. Even if you made a gun solely from metal ore that you mined on your own property, smelted yourself, and then forged and milled into a firearm, it would still affect interstate commerce according to the current interpretation of what interstate commerce is, because you affected the firearms market by not buying a firearm that was on the commercial market.
