    Indiana FFL / Registration question

    I just recently purchased a pistol. I had to do an FFL transfer to Indiana where I live.

    Two questions:
    Does indiana require "registration" of pistols?

    Was what I did through the FFL(background check, he took serial # of gun, called it in, got the go-ahead to transfer the weapon to me) actually registering the gun?

    All I've done on any of mine is the background check, serial #, and had it called in. So, as far as a separate registration no, it isn't necessary/available.

    Don't know about Indiana, but the calling in to NICS is a background check. The FFL has the serial number of the firearm, but if you noticed the only info about the gun he gives on the phone is the type: hand gun or long gun. That is not a registration. The FFL is required to keep all the info until he goes out of business and then to turn it over to BATF. This is for the tracking system. By the time most FFLs go out of business there is no telling where the gun is. Even if he goes out of business next week the firearm could have been sold or traded by you.
