Pretty self explanatory. What could someone do with that information that makes it something people hide?

Just curious
Thanks

They think that somebody is going to write down the serial # then call the police department to report that somebody stole "their" firearm in hopes of obtaining said firearm.

It's happened before and there could be a possibility of it happening so I would rather be safe than sorry. Haha I doubt obama cares enough about me to write down my cereal #. Punny huh?

I have started blocking out my engraved LLC name on any NFA item photos I post because all someone has to do is read my LLC name, go look up the LLC with the state of Missouri online and bam, right there is the address where all my stuff is stored.

You would figure someone going through that much trouble to get an illegal gun would just make one, what with the internet and all.

Or a real dumb person would just smash a truck into a gun shop.

I do it because if I ever sell the gun in question I always get the buyer asking me to take down all copies of the picture because they don't want the serial number to their new gun floating around. It's stupid to me, but I just go ahead and remove them so I don't have to later.

Same guys who say before even introducing themselves in an ftf transaction say "I won't do a bill of sale"

I wasn't going to ask for one, but now I guess ill pretend I wanted one so I can sell this to someone else.

Why make when you can take? I had a friend who's kids told their deadbeat friends their dad had guns and when the family was out of town the kids' friends broke in and stole most of them. My friend of course didn't have a safe... he learned that lesson.

I don't really care about the serial numbers, I just don't like the thought of a complete stranger being able to easily back trace my stuff to my house. I'm sure that it is a one in a billion thing, but hey those are the same odds quoted for using my CCW.

Trust or LLC info from an NFA firearm, I can understand.

However, how would an individual track you down based on seeing your serial number on your Glock?

He asked a legitimate question. If someone knows what could truly be done with that information, it would be good for us to know. So we can do also do it, while others simply think we look stupid doing it.

Is this something you dreamed up or can you cite this? If somebody did this to you out of spite they are going to be in serious shit and maybe even possibly sued. I don't really think it would be that hard to prove rightful ownership to the authorities if it even came to it.

Right... because liberals use logic and no one has ever filed a false report or anonymous tip. Do you leave your house and cars unlocked? Nothing will ever happen because burglary could result in serious jail time.

As others have mentioned, it's just a simple thing to do and reduces to near zero any unforeseen opportunities.

If I post a picture without a SN, it just a picture of any gun that anyone may own (if it's a common model and not some bling'ed out gold plated death machine)

If I post with a SN, now it's an identifiable firearm in my possession and in that configuration (SBR, pistol, rifle, etc). I will (almost) never have to worry about defending the content of that picture where the other person or "agency" would have to prove it was me, it was my gun, and I did whatever they thought I did.

SN = direct line of sight to me (although with maybe a few hoops to jump through)

This is no BS.

I know a guy that had a very nice last gen Supra. Cars are crazy money. He had his Ebay hacked and his car listed on his own account. Money order was sent to like NY or CA. I know it sounds crazy but it happened. It was ugly. End of story is he was targeted because he posted online about his car. Thieves tracked him down at a major event he visted he said he was going to. They took pisc of the car there and posted it. They wanted the $40K the car went for... Account it was transfered into was closed the next day IIRC.

I know that is not a 1 or 2K $ AR, but it does speak volumes to the lengths people will go.

Link Posted: 6/13/2014 3:08:06 PM EDT
I'm not one to post photos unless it's for sale, but I am more concerned with the known unknowns than what I think I do know. I have no idea how a clever scammer could misuse my gun's serial number, so I'm just not going to post that info. There's just no reason to do so.

There was a time when a social security number was not something to be too concerned about protecting...

Last I checked, the forum was called "General Firearm Discussion". Not "How does a firearm function". If the mods feel my thread should be moved to GD, that will be fine with me. I sure thought it fit the forum title.

That's a good point I was just thinking about recently. Law enforcement and other bureaucrats would suggest inscribing your SS# on valuables in order to claim them if lost or stolen. I bet there are SS# all over pawn shops, recycling centers, and garage sales that the owners have long since forgotten about.

I've never heard anyone recommend putting your entire social on belongings. Maybe your initials and the last four of your social, but not the whole number.

1 - national gun registry!
2. Fishing. . . . why catch the bad guys when you can sit behind you're computer and steal the s hit you want .

can't afford nice toy's well go to the gun safe thread! You don't even need a reason to borrow someone's collection for a week or two. Plus when you have specially purpose made ammo that can cause every gun to miss fire. .. . .

Thieves tracked him down at a major event he visted he said he was going to. They took pisc of the car there and posted it. They wanted the $40K the car went for... Account it was transfered into was closed the next day IIRC.

I know that is not a 1 or 2K $ AR, but it does speak volumes to the lengths people will go.

ETA I've read here that there are instances of people stealing pictures to sell guns on-line -- when the "seller" doesn't deliver the legit owner gets a phone call or knock on the door from la policiaca.

$40K is a lot bigger payday than $400-$1400 and no ATF to deal with if caught.
