Default Pictures of A Weapon's Serial Number

I've seen a lot of pictures of firearms with the serial number showing. Personally I don't like showing any of my serial numbers for a lot of different reasons. What say you?

Big brother! The CIA watches FB and other social network sites, who's to say the ATF isn't taking notes.

I don't know if it matters or not but I use Photoshop to fix that. Silverado, take your GFFA avatar, for example

About half of mine don't HAVE a serial number (never had them, not required by law for pre-1968 rifles)

As far as showing the serial number- despite paranoia have NEVER encountered a true case of false reporting of theft of that gun, Making a false report is a serious crime.

I always loved the "My gun is serial number 346XXX- when was it made?"

"Why, it was made in 19XX."

Indeed. Just keep that frame of mind.

You do understand how Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc use the "archive mode" to save all your information, right?

That includes all internet forums, and Facebook.

Hence, all intel gathered can be accessed if needed...by the Government.

Keep them gun pictures and serial numbers coming y'all!

Go here....
