One other thought... There are a number of free database programs available for those that would rather use them than work with Excel or Microsoft Access. Search Download.com or other similar websites for "home inventory database" Many of these are configurable, allow you add photos and very easy to use.
One program, which is definately not free but excellent, is Maintenance Parts Bin. You can configure all fields to match the heading you choose, works with barcoding and is extremely flexable. I use it for one of my customers' parts inventory. You can create as many databases as you want. firearms, jewelry, coins, furniture, electronics etc. you can sort, print and search iwith a multitude of options.
Me too, excel spreadsheet on HD, thumb drive and paper. Really prob should do the pictures.

I simply keep the original shot fired manila envelope (with casing in it) and sticker, plus the model bar-code sticker that comes on the outside of each box. The shot fired will prove without doubt the gun is yours.
