open source the software, as said earlier scan pics of firearms and display S/N in pics, encrypt the database, have functionality to off-site the encrypted database, e.g., burn CD/DVD or FTP to off-site location. That way, you could have a geographic independent storage location of your assets. Could come in handy if there is a geographic incident where you are trying to prove, after the fact, that you do own some confiscated guns (think of the aftermath of katrina).
Also, put in a "poison pill" id/pw combo that will do a DOD wipe of the database. That way, if under duress, you can give the poison pill id/pw and have the database rendered useless. If your adversary is technically competent, they will already have copied the hard drive/CD/DVD that is storing your database. That is where good encryption is useful (and don't even think of the Clipper chip).

Now I don't know, but I been told it's hard to run with the weight of gold.

I'm adding a Range section for each weapon to expand on the ammo idea.
From the particular weapon - (RIA .45) I click on Range then I can enter ammo choices and how they perfomed. I would also add any balistics data that you normally record when shooting rifles.
What data do you need recorded here. If you want to share a spreadsheet that would help.
