    Why would you want or need one?

    Because if your identity is stolen or you share the name of another who is not you, it allows for you to avoid delays caused by misidentification by batf.

    That's what your social security numbers for.

    Thats not really what your social security number is for. Though admittedly it is the simplest thing to use.

    The answer below popped up at yahoo answers...Maybe it will help.

    UPIN is a Unique Personal Identification Number.You will need a VAF in order to get a UPIN.

    Voluntary Appeal File (VAF)

    If you continue to experience transaction denials or lengthy delays as a result of subsequent firearm background checks, you may be eligible for entry into the NICS Voluntary Appeal File (VAF). For more information pertaining to the VAF, you may contact the NICS Customer Service at 1-877-444-NICS (6427).

    As mentioned by Corndog, you need the Voluntary Appeal File in order to get a UPIN. I wonder if you really want to voluntarily get a number with which Big Brother can more easily track you. We have enough of that already. Surely there should be another option available whereby one can establish identification without falling under some government numbering scheme. Next thing you know you will have to have a microchip implanted. Ain't no way!

    Unfortunately we are tracked and unless you want to live another kinda of life you will be tracked and if you fall off the grid they will still keep looking for you. Sad but true.
