    So lets say that I have a 1911 and I have a concealed weapons and I am forced to shoot this guy. Now the 1911 is not registered to me what will happen? I assume the the police take the weapon to ensure that it is the weapons used in the defense act. It is a no no to carry something that your name is not attached to?

    I live in FL if that makes a difference.

    This is the one facet of the AMerican gun owner that drives me bat sh** crazy!

    There is only ONE federally mandated registration in the United States. NFA Class 3 weapons, IE, full auto and burst fire guns manufactured before 1986

    A few, and I mean 2(?) states require a "registration" of guns. Ilinois and Mass.

    Any one person on here who doesnt reside in those states, who tells you they have a registered gun(other than NFA class 3), or have ever registered a gun, is either ignorant, or just copying some ignorant individual they listened to.

    You always hear the registration thing in movies also. Every time I hear it I have to laugh. You know it's the liberal hollywood producers/directors that just assume gun registration:rolleyes:.

    Don't know but assuming the weapon you carry needs to be listed or associated with your CCW you may have some problems. Someone with a Florida CCW will surely chime in with the proper info.

    So far as I know, Illinois does not require registration of firearms, only Chicago. Or at least, Chicago requires handguns to be registered.

    Michigan requires handguns to be registered. Illinois registers the firearms owners, with their Firearms Owners' ID card. (FOID).

    If the gun is actually registered to someone else, as opposed to not being registered at all, I would NEVER carry it or keep it in my home. Even if it's "not registered at all;" what if it at some point in time was used in a robbery, or lord forbid, a murder?

    I'm not a lawyer, but I can see a literal worm's nest with holes in your civil defense case were you to use a firearm not your own for concealed carry and in a possible defense shooting.

    The only exception I can see is if the gun belongs to someone in your immediate family.

    Except for those particular states, I don't see it as a problem. Heck, my duty carry Glock 19 is not "registered" to me. Bought it second hand in a face to face deal. I have no clue who the original owner was.

    In arkansas I qualified with an autoloader. I can carry as many revolvers or auto's I want and it doesn't matter who's it is or where I got it.

    When I applied for my CCW it didnt ask anything about my handgun the only time that went on paper work was when I originally purchased it from the dealer and they ran a 1.5 minute background check. Thats here in VA though!

    Some states, like Nevada require you to have listed all possible pistols you might carry on that license. I think in Nevada you have to qualify with each of those weapons as well. Personally, I think that's silly. :)

    Nevada example here.
