I have several guns from both sides of my family and just wat to run the numbers to know for sure. One of them is a shotgun I want to hunt with but don't want a Game Warden to run the numbers and get a surprise in the field.I'm curious as to why the OP is wondering if a gun might be stolen?
Did he already buy a gun that he's concerned with, or thinking about one that might be?
Since it was given to me by my grandpa I would hate to have it confiscated.Okay. Personally I would not. If it was stolen and you are not the one who did it, you should be fine outside of having it confiscated. Calling a PD to find out if the gun you possess is stolen will net the same result with more suspicion IMO.
Absolutely! I'm just wanting to make sure I'm legal.Then keep it and enjoy it. It is not normal to ask or required by law for you to find out if it is stolen. If you acquired it from some shady character it might be a concern. In this case I wouldn't go through the trouble much less giving up any more information.
