Hey are the registration cards postage paid and wide open for anyone to see your gun serial number??? I'm obviously going to put mine in an envelope but found it weird they'd do it like that.

So serial number stealing isn't an issue? I'm still pretty new at gun ownership. My Smith and Springfield I registered online.
Well it's not an issue for anyone but you. What I mean is you will be the only one who cares, since it isn't protected information. The fact is if someone gets your serial and has it engraved on a gun and uses it the ballistics aren't going to match up to the serial.

i don't register anything… (here in AZ thats the way it is)
same here in MO. My guns are all registered to MI because there is nothing to transfer them too here lol

That would be my exact concern, hence the question - why would they set the registration cards up as an "open" mailer?

I'm just going to put mine in an envelope. Problem solved. Thanks for the input.

it's an open mailer because it isn't protected information, so they have no reason to care. Would be nice if they did but like i said it is only an issue to the person.

Maybe if you gave a scenario of how you think someone could use a serial number in a negative way, we could address it better.

He said use it in a negative way. I didn't list a negative way, in fact i put to rest the biggest idea of a negative. I said if someone were to engrave your serial number on a pistol and use it the ballistics would not match. Convictions are done on ballistics not serial numbers, so their using it would be pointless.

Not that I think it's probable but negative ways info could be used;
Someone reports serial number as stolen
Someone targets your house for theft knowing a Glock may be there.
Again doubtful just off the top of my head.
