    I don't, but I'll just throw a word of caution out there. If you find one, be aware that, if you give it "permission" to access various phone features, it could theoretically do bad things.

    For example, someone with bad intentions could write an app that would ask for permission to access the Internet and the phone's GPS, and then send all the gun data you enter - and your location - to somebody else, without telling you that's what it's doing.

    I don't think this is likely, especially with an Apple product, as they don't put apps on their store without some vetting and would likely prohibit an app that would do such nefarious things. Just something to be aware of.

    I wouldn't trust it.

    Better to use an excel spreadsheet on your computer.

    They don't and probably never will. Stick with being a dinosaur on things you don't want public access.

    a folded piece of paper in a safety deposit box is good enough for me.

    It's called microsoft excel. I keep a log of all guns serial numbers and accessories. Also log my ammunition supply. I keep the file on the harddrive and a thumb drive.

    I've played around with gun log. It has a spot to store a photo of each weapon entered, and any other information you want to add. You can enter shooting reports and track ammo on hand but have not really messed with it much.

    > iphone
    > Excel

    I just use a plain text file. My files have all followed me from DOS to OS/2 to (briefly) Windows to Linux; there's always something on an OS that will handle a plain text file.

    Just the other day I was looking at my 7.65x53 loading data. I have a habit of putting the date and file name as the first line of a file. That one was created October 14, 1986. That would have been IBM DOS 2.1 on my old PC Junior... vi on OpenSUSE 12.3 on my current box handles it just fine.

    Sheet of paper and pencil is all that's really needed. Make a copy or two to keep offsite.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
