I have wondered this before about the "safe" roster, but now that the microstamping insanity has passed, I really want to know. If you own handguns that are not on the "safe" list (soon all guns) and they are stolen or destroyed (for example in a house fire) can you legally replace them? And I don't mean hunt for them used at 3 times their value. I mean can you order brand new replacements?

As long as the fees are paid to keep the CURRENT guns on the roster...

No. I mean guns that are not on the roster.

Sure. Same way they are now... PPT.

Let me quote myself on this:

You could order replacements exactly the same way you can now... You'll have to get them through PPT or find a way to transfer them in from out of state and have them NOT be subject to the "not unsafe" list...

In other words... Same way they are now.

no. You lose an AW or an Off-list handgun, there's no special recourse. Repair is a different issue, and that can usually be arranged.

If you are really concerned about this, it might be worth purchasing a spare or two.

I think some mfgrs will redo a frame with same serial number and destroy your old broken/damaged frame.

That was what I was thinking.

This I wondered about. If you could send a melted hunk of garbage back to the manufacturer and get a replacement then there's nothing to worry about. I guess it would depend on the various manufacturers...
