    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?

    Personally I don't mind the showing the serial #. I don't like posting how many & what kind I own.

    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! ;)

    you could possibly lose a gun if it had once been stolen and someone ran the serial number. even if you bought it used from a dealer does not mean that it could not have been stolen at some time in its life. it could have been 30 years or more ago.

    I have very few pictures of any of my guns and then it is when one of my family is shooting on the range or standing by a deer with their rifle in hand. I do have a picture of all my guns, every one of them and a list of the serial numbers, make, model, assessories, value, and who the gun belongs to. And an additional note to my family if a gun is of special value such as my Grandfathers shotgun and pistol or my Fathers Colt cap and ball pistol. But that info is not in my computer, but is in the safety deposit box at the bank.
