I am never going boating with anyone on this forum. This must be the 10th boat accident I have heard of. Hope you will be ok and don't get injured from it. Make sure you wear a life vest next Thursday too.

Good point about the life jacket Yunus, I wasn't wearing one when my boat capsized and I lost all of my guns too. Damn near drowned, and I couldn't save a damn one either, not even a single magazine. I guess you can make that 11 now.

Dude... I could go to the local sheriffs dept and they could easily tell me how many guns i have registered in my name. Sure the depth of class three firearms and silencers is more in depth.... but the papers filled out at the dealer dont just sit in a filling cabinet.

You probably need to pay a little more attention to the meaning of your own signature line. Not everyone purchases all their firearms through dealers and 4473 forms. A lot of people purchase firearms by personal transactions and private sells. I guarantee that there is no record of those transactions at the local sheriff's office. The only records are between the private buyer and seller. And I will disregard your last post out of courtesy, for now.

Well, the only time I would tell you to trust a private sale with no paperwork is an in state sale from a family member who personally vouches for the firearms and one you know they haven't used illegally. that being said, a licensed dealer is a great choice. he can help you out by letting you get a feel for the gun, look at manuals, and ask him as many questions as you like. Another tip, don't let money burn a hole in your pocket, take two or more trips at least before making a purchase. By the way, these guys have good advice so feel free to ask here too.

I prefer my firearms brand new or damn close. Not to mention, I get a warrenty with the place I get it from, even if it is used.

S.S.

Hey MR GET EVEN is this signature better? I was referring to what C3 shooter said earlier about how there is no federal registration with guns other than class 3... I also realize that many people buy guns through private parties. I have done so many times. Ill forgive you for you mistaking i was talking to you, for now. xoxo

Not good for a 4th post.

Are you even trying to make friends, GUN?

You apparently have a lot to learn. As a matter of fact the 4473 DOES sit at the dealer so that when the BATFE comes to check their paperwork it all better be filled out correctly with all the i dotted and t crossed. There is NO federal gun registration at this time. Also the terminology is suppressor-NOT silencer. Do you live in an area where you have county firearm registration? I don't know of anybody but a moron that would sell a handgun to a 16 year old kid-it's HIGHLY illegal. I've had an FFL for YEARS now so I DO know what I'm talking about.
