    I remember years back there used to be ongoing threads where it used to be problematic that during a traffic stop; LEO would run your weapon through there "not-registry/sales database" and if it wasnt in there, they would confiscate it until you could prove ownership. I havent heard much about that recently. Is it no longer a problem?
    How do you prove ownership if you lose your receipt? Is losing a receipt now a violation of law?
    If at first you don't succeed try a different angle.

    Exactly; that was the problem for many.... I have some guns over 20 yrs old. I couldnt tell ya where the receipts were for some of the ones ive bought in the last year let alone the older ones.
