Calm down. And please read the post we offered. You can only check a firearm thru NCIC FBI records. As AR-10 said check it thru a Cop Shop before you buy.

I really did not expect people to tell me that I am a dimrod for even thinking about the trying to help others out with something that is easy to use. The next time I find something cool and can help I will just keep it to myself or maybe share it with GeneralPatton that at least said "That's not a bad idea" and then followed up with the other stuff as to how it works. Please forgive me for trying to save you some cash, going to jail, or just sharing to be a nice guy. It won't happen again. Hope ya'lll get that whatever you have had you eye on for a few years and it breaks or gets seized, or just in some way just does not go good for you.

I guess the saying is correct, "No good deed goes un-punished".

Have a night.
We weren't "punishing" your comments. We are just saying that if you really want to run a check, then just run it with a proper LE agency instead of using an unknown user only submitted site. One call the local PD has a 100% chance of being more successful in deciding whether or not firearms are stolen.

The link posted claims 20,000 members checking stolen firearms. In 1996 the number of guns taken from house holds hit 600,000. The last data 5 years leading up to 2011 guns taken from house holds in the U.S. averaged 400,000 per year.
A web page listing even 100,000 members would be very ineffective.

I do own a bunch of guns. But I am always looking for something else. But I am careful about buying from strangers. I like pawn shops and other collectors that I am familiar with.
