I run all my guns I buy through aprivate seller and I have had that the numbers come back on but for a different gun so that goes to show that many guns of diff makes and models share serial #s so dont go off that alone . I have NEVER had one stolen if I do , I have all numbers WITH descriptions and the gun usually has a mark that I put on and most of mine also have a note tucked inside about when , where , how , who and how much I paid for it , If I know , I also put where the seller got it from , as much info as I can with a love Dad at the end so maybe the kids will see it one day when Im gone .
Dont just keep one copy of your numbers and descripts , I have several , on computer and on paper .
I may have one or two I keep no record of as it would not be reported if it was stolen
