I've been under the assumption that there is this huge program that has all registered guns listed. So, the feds wouldn't know if i have 15 or 50 guns. For those that have a large number of guns, this is good information to know. Thanks
    They call the manufacturer to find out what distributor the gun went to, from the distributor they find out what gun shop bought it and at the gun shop they start looking through the 4473 forms. Then they go to the buyer to find out what they did with it.

    I am not sure about this but the gun store is only required ( by law ) to maintain the 4473 forms for a relatively short period of time. My knowledge of that is pretty sketchy so if I got it wrong please correct me.

    I may be wrong, but I was under the impression that FFLs retain the 4473 forms until they retire (or pass on) then those records are transferred to the ATF?

    Hopefully an FFL here can shed some light on this.

    That is correct unless someone else takes over the business.

    Licensees shall retain each ATF Form 4473 for a period of not less than 20 years after the date of sale or disposition. Where a licensee has initiated a National Instant Background Check System (NICS) check for a proposed firearms transaction, but the sale, delivery, or transfer of the firearm is not made, the licensee shall record any transaction number on the Form 4473, and retain the Form 4473 for a period of not less than 5 years after the date of the NICS inquiry.

    N.C. law says for lifetime or goes to BATFE. I believe, not sure without looking up.

    I recently signed onto the NGF and this was the first thread I got onto. My original question was concerning keeping guns in different states. I just want everyone to know how much I appreciate all the responses. You have answered all my inquires perfectly well, and I have a much clearer idea of how all this registration works. Thank you.
    I have an additional question. As I mentioned previously, I am a Texas resident but spend 4-5 months a year in Ohio. They have a lot of very good gun auctions close to our house in Ohio, but as a Texas resident, I can't buy any from the sale. I know it is against the law for someone to buy a gun for another person. My question is: if the gun is properly registered, can another person buy a gun and sell it to me as long as he takes my license info, and proper bill of sale, or can I not buy a gun under any circumstances in Ohio if I am a Texas resident, other than from an FFL who transfers it to a Texas FFL? I think i know the answer to this, but wondering what the options might be, if any. Thanks for your replies.

    Legally, you must take possession of a handgun in the state of which you are a legal resident.

    Does this apply to long guns as well?
