    Check your local laws, not every state/town requires gun "registration"

    www.packing.org is a good start

    Don't think MO has registration laws... so I think you're okay.
    But just for good measure, call your local PD's non-emergency line and just ask em, just to make sure.

    Missouri doen't have gun registration, only a permit to purchase a handgun is required. I dont' know if getting it as a give or berevement is need for the permit, but either way, it's only 10 bucks and a background check.

    I love florida law, point blank the law says "gun registration is not a valid law enforcement tool."

    That's nice. MN says something along those lines as well, just not as straight-forward.

    Right of self-defense is inherent in nature. RKBA is inherent in the Constitution. The Constitution was based on the philosophy of Locke, Montesqeiu, & etc, as well as numerous historical models to include ancient Greek city-states, the Roman Republic, and the British parlimentary monarchy. And if, as Jesus said, lawmakers were provided by God to give guidance on Earth, then in fact firearm ownership could be construed to be in the Bible. :)

    It's not 10 bucks to register, it's just 10 bucks to purchase it. Basically it's paying for an advanced nics check, and a state nics check.

    It's 10 bucks here in Oregon :sad2: I have to pay the dealer, then they pay the state. So if I'm having something sent to a FFL it's the FFL fee plus $10.

    It is not free everywhere. In illinois background checks go through the state police and they charge dealers $2. I believe many states have something setup like that.

    It's not charged by the dealers. To purchase a pistol in missouri, you have to go to the sherrif's department, fill out a form, have them do a background check and pay the sheriff's department 10 dollars. Then you take that form and buy what you please within a month.

    It's a retarded system, but it makes the anti's happy. I wish it was just like long guns. The way it is now, it's just a big inconvienince, and basically a "tax" on purchasing a handgun.

    From what i've been told, it's only to purchase and doesn't register the gun to you and you don't have to carry the form with the pistol when you transport it or anything.

    well, its free in georgia. our gun dealers are the scum of the earth here, and love to rip people off.
    we dont have different forms or anything for handguns/rifles. we do the same thing if you want either gun. if you have a permit, you dont even need the background check. i guess georgia is just really lax on how they do it.
