    I know there is more code somewhere, but I couldn't find it. I know sarge has posted some code on another thread about this too.

    If it isn't broke, then don't fix it, or you'll fix it until it's broke.

    Yes - what they said. I just wanted to add: that anytime I have purchased a firearm from a private party (KSL, etc) I always draw up a nice little bill of sale before i go. Complete with serial numbers, signatures, DL numbers, and various contact information. I have done this a grand total of twice and each time, the other guy was MORE than happy to fill out the information. Kinda made him feel better too. Just my .02

    ADDED: Why would anyone want to do this? well, its just a bit easier to prove ownership. When would you have to prove ownership? i really have had no use for the 2 that i have. But its good peace of mind i think.
