Shotgun Registration

8 posts in this topic

I am about to purchase a used shotgun from a friend of mine. I know you don't have to register a shotgun or have a permit or license to use one for purposes of hunting in the state of MN, but I'd like to get the gun registered and put in my name. Does anyone know what I'll need from my friend, and what I'll need to do to get this done?

Thanks!

The gun isn't in anyone's name now and it can't be registered in your name either. We don't register guns in MN.

Pretty sure you don't have to transfer anything wh enbuying a long gun from a private party, but I could be wrong...

OK, so I've heard mixed answers from different people. I know we don't register shotguns in MN, but I've also heard that we can have the gun put in our name. Does anyone know the laws?

Yes, I know the law and there is no way to "put the gun in your name". If you were to buy it from a licensed gun dealer they would run a check to see if you were legally authorized to purchase a firearm. The dealer would also keep a record of the sale. That's the only place where you and the gun would be connected on paper.

For what purpose would it be to have a shotgun in your name??

A firearm trace by any LEA is a click on a computer, but that will only get information to the original receiver of the firearm from the manufacturer. From there, it's all leg work (or phone calls) to the dealer that sold the gun.

From there, no paper work is needed for a private individual to sell to another. Many firearms have passed through 20-30 hands. As long as each individual kept, for his own records, the new owners info, the trail ends.

With that being said, if you must have some kind of record of ownership, the only route is through the federal process of purchasing a firearm. Here's how it would work...

1)You would have to transfer your firearm to a licensed dealer. This dealer then would "sell" or tranfer this firearm back to you.

2) This transfer back to you will require a NICS (criminal back-ground ) check. You will also need to fill out a 4473. This form is a Federal form in which you supply all the information on yourself.

3) Once the 4473 form and NICS check are completed, the dealer now can transfer the firearm to you. Just a note....the dealer will charge you for this service, maybe $25-$50. You will be using his time.

Now that you have taken possession, the Feds and the dealer will know you are not a crook. Under Federal law, the NICS info is "suppose to be destoyed on the Federal end"....highly unlikely.

As for a record of your ownership, only the dealer making the transaction will have it. He will retain the original 4473 form and also keep a record of it in his acquisition and deposition book (federally mandated record book.

make it easy on yourself. Take a picture of it, record thne serial number, take out a rider for it on your homeoner/renter's insurance policy, pull the butt plate off and engrave the last 4 of you SSAN into the stock......it's all yours.

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
