registering a firearm

I received a shotgun as a wedding present from a friend of mine do I need to register with anyone?

the last time I saw a shotgun at a wedding was carried by my uncle behind the groom. The only thing that was registered was the wedding certificate. But, I'm sure he didn't give the scatter gun to the newly found son-in-law.

Now thats funny right there, I don't care who ya are. SB I love the sig. and avitar. That would be a good xmas card logo for the "PEOPLE EATING TASTY ANIMALS" Group. and the wedding gun, you don't have to do anything. Only when you buy from a dealer or auction sometime too I think. Private Party's No.

I was reading this week's edition of Minnesota Outdoor News, and in it was a story about a bill that some politicians wrote up. The bill would make everyone with a gun register the gun, along with providing finger prints, a picture, medical and mental health records. The story went on to say that the bill should not make it far though.

If something like this were to ever pass,it would be the responsible hunters and gun owners who would register their guns. What incentive would there be for the criminals committing the violent crimes to go out and register their guns, along with providing all of their personal information.

To say the least, this story really made my blood boil.

As Charelton said "FROM OUR COLD DEAD HANDS" I guess if the only choice is to fight fire with fire we better start takeing this less for granted and get the message out there to our politions that we won't keep them in office unless they keep this America,the way we sportsmen like it. we allot of us choose not to get involved because we think it wont happen, but it can if we go fishing and stuff and forget about it. The only way is proactive and voteing for some people that are on the publics side. If there is not a good canidate wich there seems to be so offten then we need to start comeing up with some.The other side seems to have no trouble pulling these wacko's out of the woods somewhere.

So long as your firearm is not used in a Crime...

then its not difference at all if its registered or not

Handguns is a good idea to register.. all others.. not an issue

Check your homeowners policy to make sure the guns you own don't go over the limit in the policy. Write down the info on the guns such as make, model, caliber and serial number. If you have any value info record that as well. Put that info with your household inventory and keep that someplace that would survive if there was a fire or a theft.

You don't need to register most guns beyond the requirements that are in place when you buy one. Machine guns may be an exception but there aren't many floating around.

Legally... But it is gut wrenching to know the actual amount of illegal Machine guns "floating" around.. sick

Tom, your advise about home owner insurance is sage. However, most policies cover that sort of stuff up to a certain amount. Mine only covered guns up to 200.00. That's why I have a "rider" for full value of all my guns, Hummels, coins, jewerly, etc. Better check and see just what possesions are actaully covered for thier full value.

We have full gun registration in Canada--everything including air guns have to be registered. Compliance with this law is less than the Gov't had hoped and it was and is extremely expensive. There are various bills in the legislature to do away with the long gun registry but none have passed thru parliment as yet. It's a real PITA.

I had a house fire several years ago and getting them replaced was the easiest part of the whole deal. The gov't had a record of every make and model on file and I just bought replacements--the only thing the Insurance company didn't kick about.

Buy your guns now in USA, last night reports sounded like a major blow to gun manufacturers, Obama and his boys want to clean things up a bit.

    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
    • Five hours? Wow! That's about 3 hours longer than any bird I've ever worked. Good job.
