I was wondering since I just went through a possible disaster. I keep all the serial #s, manuals and gun paperwork in one giant ziplock bag in a cupboard with my financial records. That way I can grab it all at a moments notice.
Got your stuff ready? What if there's a fire? If you can get the gun stuff quick it leaves more time to save the kids, pets and wife.

I have all the numbers, descirptions and estimates on my laptop, on my popcket PC, and on a CD-ROM that I burn along with digital pictures that I keep in my office (updated every couple of months).

In the same files, I also have pictures of everything in my house along wiht a detaile list of most of my property. If my house were to burn down or something, it would be a very convenient thing to have for the insurance company.

Now see. That is why you need to keep receipts handy in case of a boating accident. This way it is easy to give the inforamtion to the insurance company.

I keep one copy here at home, two copies in a file drawer at work, one hard copy and one on disc. I also keep a file on everything that has a serial number also, lawn mower, saws, tv's etc. It's a JBT thing.

We were having this conversation at supper.

Mother-in-law asked about insuring guns, led to discusion of serial numbers and privacy. Wife said guns are on record with dealers...

I said "what guns?".

Iowa does not require record keeping for private transactions. The only guns I own are the ones I want to admit to. Sold a few, lost a few, got this here 10/22 and a .38...


Serial numbers are safely tucked away.

Serial numbers the insurance co has. NFA stamps are in a safety deposit box.

Not having any items where papers are required, I don't keep them....
