    That's a warranty registration card.

    And no, a gun is not registered when it's purchased. The 4473 form is retained in the dealer's files at his business premises.

    I wish everybody would stop repeating this gun registration crap. That's a myth perpetuated by Hollywood. With a few exceptions, like Las Vegas, NV, we do not have gun registration in the United States of America.

    HA! Funny I read this..I was @ a starbucks yesterday. I was sporting my Glock cap. Young lady that came up to take my order took a double take @ the cap; Her "GLOCK huh?...cool". She bumped the dude next to her and said "check his hat" dude turned...looked "so you like shooting huh?". Me "yep". Him "shoot to kill" he was joking but I replied "no I shoot to stop the threat". He stopped a sec "so you scared of getting jumped?" I said "no, just prepared" he said "cool" while bobbin his head.

    lady handed my coffe (Grande carmal macciauto) said "good day....glock man". I thanked her for the coffe and went on my marry way.

    We can be part of the solution or part of the problem.

    To me, it's less a matter of pride and literally open supporting of the Constitution than it is a matter of tactics.

    At Wally World

    I was in the local Wally World in Elizabethtown, KY this evening when I saw a young man OCing. I watched from a distance and saw that no one ran off screaming and yelling. My only problem was the way the young man was dressed. I don't want to be too critical, but he had a torn tee shirt on and dirty blue jeans. Maybe he did just get off of work, but if someone would have confronted him and judged him by appearance, he was a looser. Maybe I am just an angry old man, but if we want to be accepted, we should dress the part.

    ^I hate to say image is everything, but I think I don't get bothered typically because I'm wearing a polo shirt, khakis, a short haircut, and clean shaven. I'm sure most people think I'm some form of LE or are just afraid to ask.

    Exactly. That's why I told her that, because in LV this is the case. I had to have my paperwork filled out and submitted and get my blue card when I picked up my cun. It's only on pistols though.

    Right after Columbine, a friend and I stopped at Starbucks, on the way back from the range. As usual, I was wearing an NRA ballcap.

    The slacker behind the counter said to me, "Boy, it sure must take a lot of guts to wear that hat these days!"

    I replied, "Why? Who's going to make me take it off?"

    I wish for a day when people will use common sense and realize that a legally carrying citizen could have spared much bloodshed at Columbine or any number of the active shooter massacres since then.

    Someday and I pray that day never comes, but I think it will, someday there's going to be an active shooter in a mall, maybe a mumbai kind of situation. It's almost a foregone conclusion. When it happens the odds are pretty good that it won't be a cop or a soldier to stop the rampage. It will more likely be somebody like those of us on this forum that shuts it all DOWN. Then, watch all the gun control legislation just go away. That's why we're sheepdogs.

    Open Carry Concerns is a thread here where many DC members both those opposed to OC and pro OC researched this very issue. After months of searching the conclusion is that there has NEVER EVER been a single verifiable instance where a civilian was at a tactical disadvantage because they open carried. Not one, not any, not ever. It appears all the myths about the tactical disadvantage of OC are urban legends based on nothing other than what if imagining and fabricated the sky is falling scenarios created by the inexperienced and uninformed who claim to have heard from someone, who knows someone that was told by a friend relative or acquaintance that they were attacked or had their gun taken away and shot fifty eight times because they OC'ed, but are unable to provide a single news story, police report, or a link to any credible source to verify their story. AKA myth, urban legend, old wives tale.
    There is no tactical disadvantage to OC'ing regardless of how many ass.u.me that there might be.
    Of course for those who live in the socialist states that ban OC it would be easy to be duped by the anti OC myths and Brady bunch propaganda. Those of us that live in states where OC is not an uncommon carry option know better from actual real life experience not arm chair conjecture.

    I groan whenever a gun is recovered in Cold Case (set in Philadelphia) and the detective says "it's registered to Joe Blow in Kensington." That's Ed Rendell (PA Governor) and the Hollywood script writers' wet dream, but there is no gun registration in PA*.

    (*The PA State Police keep a database of sales, but courts have ruled that it's not an illegal "registry" precisely because it doesn't include all guns, such as the ones I have that were purchased in other states before I moved to PA.)
    Clinging to guns and God in PA...
