As shooting enthusiasts, we found ourselves purchasing new firearms and selling old ones. We bought and traded numerous accessories. We also have had our firearms serviced for various reasons. All the while, we found that we regularly forgot to update our personal fire arms records because we were too busy taking trips to the range or researching the next rifle, pistol, ammunition, or accessory we wanted to get our hands on.
Talking with our friends, we learned that most of them kept their records inconsistently or not at all. A few of our friends were good about keeping up with their records but were concerned about loosing them or getting into the hands of people who had no business with the records.
Like most responsible gun owners, we want to do a good job keeping these important records up to date and not worry about them.
We hope this resonates with you.
