  • Do you guys save all your paperwork and receipts on every firearm you ever bought?

    Do you keep an inventory of your all your firearms, including the I.D. numbers, just incase you get robbed or for fire insurance reimbursement?

    Yes. I have the information recorded in a bound book and in a backed-up Excel spreadsheet. The receipts are scanned, stored electronically, and backed up.

    Also, I have backed up digital photos of the firearms with high enough resolution to see the serial numbers.

      Yes,I have a list of make ,model serial# Great Idea PH on pictures , I use to not do this,but after a firearm stolen from me was used in a criminal act the police had it for evidence, when the trial was over the D.A said I could have it back providing I could show proof that matched the serial #, which I had not recorded. So I went to the police station that had it stored in the evidence room, they knew it had no use for them at this point, and I explained to them the gun had been fired and I would like to preserve its usefulness and integrity by swapping out the barrel,to which they accented. Now I keep numbers updated.

        The last 3 or 4 I've bought, yes. Before that, I had no interest in keeping boxes or literature.
        In my safe (rated at 2500°F for 30 minutes) there is a list of all firearms.
        I carry a copy of that in my wallet at all times.
        There are also copies on my loading bench, my wife's purse and hidden in my vehicles.
        Make-model-s/n-caliber-scope-brief description and identifying marks.

            I am not too sure that having all of that information stored in your wallet is a real good idea Bubba. That same wallet also holds all the information as to the address and thus location of where those guns are located, which would not be good in the possible theft or loss of the wallet, jmo !

              You beat me to it Rich. ?
              The wife's purse scares the hell out me also. ?
              Women in church leave their purse back in the church pew, when they go up for Holy Communion. ?
              My sister had a kid grab her purse in a run-by, but she held on to it with the kid letting go.

              Another thing to worry about if a husband and wife have bad domestic feud and the cops come and ask "are there any firearms in the house?" The wife will say "yes here is the list of firearms written down by my husband." ?

                Guess you guys married the wrong girl! LOL!
                My wife values/prefers firearms over jewelry!
                ...and don't put too much value on the word "list"!

                    Good idea abut the remote location.
                    The one time I needed all that information was when my house burned down, and I had to file an insurance claim.
                    All my paperwork went up in smoke.

                      Yes. All on cd. Several pics showing serial numbers and distinguishing characteristics of each. Pics of receipts as well on separate cd. Copy in gun safe, copy in home safe, and copy in safe deposit box at bank. If bought from individual I keep the bill of sale when one is offered. I never ask for one though, if they look sketchy I just pass on the deal.

                          About a year or two ago before leaving on a trip, I made a video on my phone where I went through all of them, make, model, serial numbers and accessories, though it's probably out of date as the long gun list tends to be mildly fluid at times.
                          I'd recommend pictures and description of the accessories for insurance purposes. If you've got good glass, or a red dot and a surefire on rifles, they may easily be worth more than the rifle itself.
