Is there anyway to run a serial number on a gun to see if it's clean and not have to give up my idenity? I just want to be able to check guns for sale and not have my door knocked down by the democrat anti gun freaks.

I've OFTEN wondered that. It'd be cool if the ATF web page had a serial # check that you could put the serial in and it would either come up "stolen" or "no info" or something simply like that.

Cop buddies tell me it is hard to prove possesion of a stolen gun sense most do not keep their serial #'s on file just in case.

So what happends if you call local LE department and they run it and the gun you bought used comes up stolen?

OOPS! LOL

Yes, there is a web site that I have used before for exactly this purpose. Wait a minute, I'll see if I can find it.

ETA: The web site was www.isthisgunstolen.com , but it is apparently shut down now... the url goes nowhere. Looks like to are SOL. Sorry.

Run it with the local cops *67 them and make up a name. If it comes up stolen say holy crap its stolen? Hey hey hey come back he ran away, what did he look like? Email them a picture of the Heineken looter from no.

Oh hell no what? All they do is run the serial number against reported stolen serial numbers in NCIC. Tin foil alittle tight there?
