Paranoia. I used to be like that. To each their own.
Agreed with both of the above, yet I still do it myself. What's that old saying... "Better safe than sorry"?Theoretically I guess there is some risk. Realistically I think it is extremely low.
This is the misconception, but as long as you have the receipt from where you purchased the gun, there should be no issues.Because people could register them and or claim to own them for insurance purposes.. If reported " stolen" could cause an issue....I play bass and people never give out SNs there either.. Same issues

The vast majority of my guns were private party sales and I don't have receipts for the ones I bought from stores either.
But, they are still your guns, aren't they? Why the paranoia? Saying someone seeing the gun serial numbers and reporting them being theirs and were stolen is just the most ridiculous thing I hear.The vast majority of my guns were private party sales and I don't have receipts for the ones I bought from stores either.
OTOH, I don't keep receipts for anything I buy, and this is no different.
