That isn't to say BATFE couldn't find your information if they wanted.
    Skipper, just what do you think all that paperwork you fill out when buying a gun is? Why do you think copies of the applications are kept? It isn't for the convenience of the gun seller. It is a government requirement, consequently, the gun IS registered in a system that keeps track of the ownership. I think the fellow was asking if the gun had to be registered with the police since he wanted to be completely legal when carrying. And, yes, some states do require registration (see below). Here was a person who was asking for help in a forum, not smart ass answers. Why do answers to a newbie's question have to be so derisive and combative? Maybe you will need a question answered on here sometime that is of paramount importance to you but insignificant to others. How do you want to be answered?

    I would not carry the gun if you had ANY ideas that the gun may be "hot". I would not even own a gun that I thought was illegal. I read a story about a guy who bought a M-14, from a vendor, at a gun show a long time ago and found out that the gun was on the stolen list with the police. He found that out when he took it to a gunsmith to have some work done on it, yeah, they showed up at his door. Long story short, they did not file charges, but he lost his gun. In Indiana you don't have handgun registration, so if the gun is not a stolen one, then you should be able to carry it.

    Oldgrunt, First -
    "Under federal law, there's no formal registration for any non-automatic firearm, and unrecorded transfers between private citizens are permitted. A kind of distributed registration requirement exists for anyone buying a firearm through a dealer; they must fill out Form 4473, which the dealer is required to keep on file for 20 years."Sorry, Mandatory Gun Registration Is Constitutional - Taking Liberties - CBS News
    I didn't want to quote without siting source.

    Second - Yes, I can be a smart ass, but it's better than being a dumb ass. Here's another quote from the same article, "At the moment, a minority of states including New York, Maryland, California, New Jersey, and Massachusetts require mandatory registration for handguns." If you live in one of these States, you as a gun owner, are going to have someone knock at your door one day, and demand you hand over your guns. That's being a dumb ass. Get involved, and get it changed!
    "The 2nd amendment was never intended to allow private citizens to 'keep and bear arms'. If it had, there would have been wording such as 'the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed'." -- Ken Konecki on Usenet, on 27 Jul 1992
