I decided it was time to compile a record of all my firearms. So I went through them all, recorded the make, model, and serial number, and made a list. I then took photos of each firearm, and saved them in a file on a USB Flash drive. I placed the list and the USB Flash drive in an envelope, and placed it in a separate fire / water proof safe.
I considered the importance of keeping a firearm record and came up with three reasons for recording firearm information, including description, serial number, and photo.
1. If any of my firearms are stolen and then recovered, this information will allow me to claim my firearms from the law enforcement agency holding them.
2. If any of my stolen firearms are ever used in a crime, I will have my list, along with the police report, to show I was not in possession of the firearms at the time the crime was committed.
3. This information will be necessary, in the event any of my firearms are ever stolen, to receive reimbursement from my home owners insurance company.
Although the majority of my firearms are stored securely in a gun safe, and not likely to be lost due to theft. There are however times when they are not. Such as my readily available home protection firearms ,and when I am traveling. So a updated firearm record is a good idea.
