    got a bit of a problem and need some imput. last year I bought a 686-1 off of a guy I worked with, he needed some travlin money as he was leaving the state. nice pistol 4" with a set of pachmeyers almost a twin to one I already had. got it for way good price $300 anyway nv. law states handguns need to be registerd with metro/ sheriff within 24 hrs of purchase. that eve. when I got home I placed weapon up in closet for eve. I was going to register in am next day. during the night my grandson took ill and I took him to er and he required emrg. surgery, he was ok (thank goodness) but was in hospitial several days and therefore so was I. anyway life marches on I basically forgot about pistol. about three weeks ago was cleaning out closet because we are moving and tucked up in corner found 686-1 now I have a couple of registered handguns as well as several long guns which do not require registeration. I would like to register this weapon as it is far too nice for throw down but i'm thinkin if I take it in it may be confiscated or I may be fined or both or niether what do y'all think? am i just screwed? :confused:

    Why are you even asking this question

    Lets see, you have a firearm purchased from a private individual for cash who has left the state.

    You have no current paper trail on it. Nobody knows you own it.

    Are you seriously wondering if you should go register it?

    I'm not advocating breaking the law or anything - just pointing out some facts you may not have considered.

    Why on earth would you do something like that. Why not just take it down and register it? Tell them you just picked it up from a guy yesterday. How they gonna prove different?

    Hell, I'd rather buy the gun from you than seeing you get rid of it that way.

    you say you are moving?
    are you staying in the state or are you moving out of state. to be honest with you, unless you are moving to a state that has laws like Cali or NY i would count it as a blessing and just keep it tucked away and don't use it for carry, just for target practice. if the government falls apart because of a Major attack on our soil, the last thing they are going to be looking for is your gun.
    I'm not sure how the general felling is among gun owner down your way but up here in the northwest, the more guns you can get that you know aren't hot or stolen without a paper trail that big brother can follow the better.
    if you feel you really need to register it(which i recommend you don't) then get a recipt written buy someone else and date to the proper date and go reg. it. other wise i would just count your blessing that you got it under the table to start with and keep it that way.
    good luck.

    Don't register it, don't worry about it and if anyone every catches you with it, tell them you just bought it off some guy passing through and gee whiz, you were on your way to the cop shop RIGHT NOW! :rolleyes:

    Good gods, if you're gonna do this, just email me your address. I'll drive down and you can give it to me.
    Edited to add: Ok, maybe not. It's a sixteen hour drive, now that I've checked the gas. My expenses would be more than the gun.
    Still, I'm sure any number of folks here would pay you for this gun, in a face to face sale. Please don't let another firearm get melted down for scrap in some blissninny turn in program.

    Shmuckatelli is that you?

    Leave it alone no reason to register. everyone needs a little less intrusion in their lives by government.

    If you are asking us this question I have the strange feeling you have already decided what to do but want to justify your own thoughts. Do what your conscience tells you and not what we advise. But at the same time ;) ... are they gonna be searching your house soon? Are you planing or have you broken some law that may prompt a house search? If it were me, I'd have just gotten a piece of paper with his DL and yours and two signatures and a date in case it comes back on you later as a murder weapon or such. that is as much registration as I would do and way above and beyond what SC law dictates. (it is a thing I do on any gun transfer I do and I keep paperwork just in case of any issues)

    Now go do what makes YOU feel better. Or forward it to Spoon wait there is no spoon forward it to me :p

    I don't see where there is any evidence to show when you obtained the revolver. Since the issue worries you, and you havent been arrested for having an unregistered firearm, you're not in trouble. I'd simply go in and register it, so long as I had the name and (then) address of the former owner.

    From a personal point of view I don't have to worry about such stuff. In Arazona gun registration is illegal ... :eek:

    I know when I've visited Las Vegas, I seem to have overlooked the registation requirements for my carry gun too. For retribution, I have whipped myself with cooked spaghetti upon leaving. I suggest you do the same. Be sure to cook the spaghetti al dente, if it's overcooked you'll miss the pain associated with this horrible crime.
