    Registration Transfer?

    I am in the 25-35 age group, and as of right now i only have 1 firearm registered to my name. My dad had purchase all the firearms (shot gun and rifle) prior due to me being a minor at the time. I was reading on another thread aobut someone transporting their arsenal during a move and someone else had said,
    As long as they are yours, and you're transporting them properly. 1 or 100 shouldn't matter, in theory.
    Would it be recommended to someone get the firearms, that are in my possession registered in my name? Or does it really matter? If so how would I go about it? I just don't want any hassle should the "Close Encounter of the LEO kind" happen.

    You had to register your firearms in KS? I have firearms my dad bought for me over 40 years ago and I've moved all over the place with no questions whatsoever.

    You question(?) is unclear. What are you trying to do?

    I do not know. I am just assuming, (we all know what that does), that LEO would run the serial numbers. Maybe I have watched too many "reallity" tv cop shows.

    I'm not sure, it was just the form i had to fill out to purchase a handgun in KS.

    Few states require registration of your firearms, and as long as the firearm is being transported in a legal manner for the state you are in and is legal for you to own there shouldn't be an issue with LE, barring encounters in places like NYC, MA, and such.

    I guess the key words that got me thinking were:

    As long as they are yours
    Maybe I don't need to prove that?

    Yep to all unless Ks requires req of guns more then likely the forms were just your normal 4473 fed gun stuff.. Really if the cops run the guns they are just seeing if they come back stolen etc..

    So thus as long as you know they are clean so to speak and are being transported legally you should be fine..unless is ks is weirder with laws then I though

    Do note that if these are not normal gun. But nfa gns like full auto or sawed offs etc then yeah whole other pickle but assuming normal guns no there is no issue

    Right now all I have in my possession is a stock Remington 870 and my M&P 40 Shield.

    Rather than dancing around, I'll just answer the question.

    The state of Kansas does not require registration of firearms. Thus, your guns are not registered. When you bought the gun you filled out the paperwork to do the background check. While some believe that information is retained by the ATF, there is no database that will have all the information. Some people only buy from private sellers to ensure that there is no paper trail leading to them.

    When you see a LEO check a serial number on TV there are usually checking to see if the gun has been reported stolen. So, as long as that isn't the case nothing would come back if they checked the numbers on yours.

    There you go. He beat me to it. It's up to them to prove you don't own it.
