    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I have my serial numbers written down, but photographs? Hmmm. All my Glocks look alike. How could anyone distinguish them from every other one on the street?

    for instance...my XD is unique to me as i dropped the slide once while cleaning it and there is a mark on it that only i notice... same with my other guns. they all have certain features/characteristics that make them unique....pits in wood...etc, etc..

    Hope the serial numbers are not the same also.

    Yep, along with receipts. A copy on the computer and also a back-up hard copy. I actually have a record of all of my gun (and other) stuff including ammo, holsters, mags, accessories, etc.. Maybe I'm anal but I'm getting older and having things written down helps me remember what I've bought and sold along with how much is invested.

    Serial numbers/discreption and MSRP on all my guns, cameras and computers. I always use MSRP since it is normally more than you will pay retail for the item. That way if it is stolen or distroyed I hopefully have covered my depreciation.

    Here is free software from the Insurance Information Institute.

    It also allows you to store it online at their "vault".

    I have pics of all my guns, with the serial #'s make and model and value imbedded in the pic. Then have 3 copies of the disc I burned them on. One in my safe, one in the filing cabinet with all the reciepts, and one in my safe dept box at the bank.

    Yes, on my computer with a backup hard drive too.

    I have the original boxes for two of the three which also have the serial # on the box.
    The third was a gift.

    I don't have the receipts for any. But, except for the gift gun, the others have been back for repair at S&W, so they have the original warranty card etc.
