OK, the DOJ has a form that lets you register a gun for 19 bucks. But to be legal, you are to take a gun with the original owner to a dealer for a PPT...so when are these self register forums legal to use? I would assume that if an elderly housebound neighbor wanted to gift you a gun, and couldn't leave the house, you could use this form? Or if you found ne in your attic from years ago. But it doesn't say on the form the circumstances..????

If you legally own an unregistered firearm it is also legal to volreg it. The volreg form is not some kind of FFL transfer replacement for the lazy.

Or if you found ne in your attic from years ago. yes, that would be a better use of the volreg form.

If I remember correctly you are supposed to register within thirty days. Not sure about guns you were given years ago or left to you by a deceased family member years ago. The form asks who you acquired it from, their relationship, and when.

I assume we are talking about handguns here.....since currently rifles & shotguns don't need to be registered

What about assigning a serial to an 80%?

No requirement to report that.

No requirement, but there are theoretical advantages.
