AVOID BUY­ING STOLEN GUNS

The Field - - Country Queries -

QIs there any way of check­ing to see if a gun you are buy­ing has pre­vi­ously been stolen? I have been caught out once be­fore and don’t wish to be put in this em­bar­rass­ing sit­u­a­tion again.

AThe Gun Loss Reg­is­ter launched this year as an off-shoot to The Art Loss Reg­is­ter. The aim is to pro­vide a sim­ple and cost-ef­fec­tive way to en­sure that a gun you are buy­ing is legally for sale. The site has a cen­tralised in­ter­na­tional database of stolen guns. You can use the site for a one-off search, sup­ply­ing the make, model, cal­i­bre and se­rial num­ber of the gun you wish to buy. This costs £10 plus VAT and one should usu­ally re­ceive a re­ply within 24 hours af­ter pay­ment has been re­ceived.
