As planned I headed up to Bob Moats Sport Shop today so I could buy a gun and get in the Bloomberg Gun Giveaway raffle.

I intended to buy a Taurus M85 UL in Titanium Finish but they would have had to order it (which I expected) but the price was more than I was willing to pay for it. So I just got the SS of the same model.

What I didn't intend to get there was TWO guns. But I did just that. I also bought a Ruger 22/45.

So all in all I purchased two guns and received 6 tickets in the raffle.

Congratulations Dan! And too glad you got in on the raffle.

Now for the bad news. You also bought yourself some Federal BS, ATF Form 3310.4 (http://www.atf.gov/pub/fflnews_pub/ffl0896.htm).

You do realize that by getting on on the Bloomberg namesake raffle, hizhonor has labeled you a "sick person".

:rofl:

That's a badge of courage I could live with!

Truckee, why is that? Because he bought two handguns?

Yes, because I bought multiple handguns (more than one) I got special attention by the feds. :wavey:

Yes. Dan answered SDM, but here it is straight from the BATFE's mouth:

MULTIPLE SALE FORM
ATF Form 3310.4, Report of Multiple Sale or Other Disposition of Pistols and Revolvers, (multiple sale form) must be used by licensees to report all sales to an unlicensed person of two or more handguns at one time or during 5 consecutive business days.

There was a thread a while back where the BATFE came a-knockin' on a door with this form in hand. The Agents demanded the guy show them the two HGs he had bought... and he complied. The flaming and debate was on.

Oh I believe you folks, I just hadn't heard about it before. I hadn't had to worry about, if I manage to save enough to buy one at a time I'm lucky. What if you buy two from different dealers, would they be notified during the check, or or is it the buyers responsibility to tell them?

SDM,

I'm sorry if you thought that I insinuated that you were a non-believer... I in no way meant to.

Using two separate dealers, buying one from each, will spare you from getting reported to the BATFE -- yes. The buyer has no reporting responsibility, reporting is the dealer's concern.
