I was recently told that in order to insure a bunch of firearms I would need to submit a list with serial numbers. Has anyone else had to do this???? Is it a bad idea???

Submit them to an insurance company? Give them an encrypted file, which YOU will unlock if it is needed.

I don't have a bunch, but my insurance company didn't require serial #'s. They said if there is a loss, I need to show proof of purchase. I have a blanket policy for 25k.

Tommy, My ins. Rep tried to do the same thing. Tell him to go pound sand! They don't ask for serial numbers on Diamond Ear rings and the like. Have your toy's appraised by a reputable local dealer,and include partial serial numbers. (I.E. L203XXX) Keep a copy of the serial numbers in a fireproof safe along with photos,or put them in a safe deposit box. Present the appraisal to the agent. If they still want serial numbers,RUN! They keep records like most folks keep junk mail and they don't care who they share them with. Best of luck! S-28

The insurance available through the NRA does not require serial numbers. They do not even require you to tell them what kinds of firearms you have and how many you have, only how much they are worth.
