    There are so many guns out there. It's a terrible situation.

    Hour and a half is pure crap. The Supreme Court has clearly stated a reasonable detainment is 15-20 minutes. You want to get a dog, illegally run my serial number or whatever, on a traffic stop, I'm going to politely bow out at the 20 minute mark. Got a problem with that? Bring your supervisor to my lawyer's office and we'll have a chat. Oh yes, bring my gun back too, because if you don't, I'll recover those legal fees per state law.

    Please Guerndt, do some reading on the forum, learn form our experience, and proceed to file a formal complaint.

    I've spent hours reading. Thus why I posted. I haven't seen anything for quite a bit and was not sure if any new laws had passed that I should be aware of. But thank you.

    My guess would be that it's their way of registering firearms. They can't register a handgun when you buy it, but the police keep records of everystop and there's a log of everything said on the airwaves. Your serial number is in that log.

    how are firearms that have no serial numbers handled? (blank serial plate - not scratched off or obtained illegally)

    should said plate be stamped with something made up?

    A. The answer to the cops question can be, "5th amendment. I'm not answering questions. "

    2. Never carry a gun you dont want to lose. If you ever have to use it, its gonna be gone at least for a while. I dont think George Zimmerman ever got his Kel tec p11 back after defending himself from Trayvon Martin

    I believe he DID get it back and then attempted to auction it off. Not sure if it sold or not.
