The question I brought up is if people thought if you would look better if the gun you had to use for personal defense was purchased through a gun shop for example in which you were required to have a back ground check done and the serial number of the gun is registered to you.
If you buy a new gun from a gun shop a form 4473 is kept on record for 20 years. If the gun shop closes all the form 4473's that have been collected are turned over to the ATF. By law the ATF keeps all these records in a warehouse from closed gun shops.

If you buy a gun from an individual your home state has their own requirements.

Section 478.124(c)(4) requires FFLs to record on the Form 4473 the name of the manufacturer, the name of the importer (if any), the type, model, caliber or gauge, and the serial number of the firearm. As with the information in the acquisition and disposition record, the information pertaining to the identification of the firearm that must be recorded in Section D, questions 26-30 on the ATF F 4473, should be recorded from the markings on the firearm. If the information is recorded correctly, information about a particular firearm in the record of acquisition and disposition and in questions 26-30 on the ATF F 4473 should match.

In that case I would say you can carry the gun you shot best and is 100% reliable and not worry about whether you bought it from a dealer or a private party.

Just learn the laws in your state pertaining to 'use of lethal/deadly force' and practice enough to be able to handle an 'up close and personal attack'!
Hope this helped,
Jim
