When I bought my P3AT in Nashville Tn a few weeks ago, I was over joyed and took it home and shot it to my satisfaction. No problems at all so far. But i got to wondering if something happens to it I don't have anything with the serial # on t saying it is mine. All I got was a sales reciept. Did the dealer send papers to KT ?

Re:  Registration of P3AT

I highly doubt it. No reason for sending your info to Kel-Tec. I can't think of any reason why Kel-Tec would want your personal info. A sales receipt would suffice if warrantee work was required.

Maybe KTWM can chime in here but I think there may actually be a law in the gun-shine state (Florida) preventing Kel-Tec from keeping a database of gun owners (or maybe that just applies to the state & local governments here).

A sales reciept is more than enough. For your own records, in case of theft, etc, you might write the serial # on it. :-/

The dealer would normally write the make, model, caliber and serial number on the sales receipt in my experience. Generally the customer must sign the receipt as well.

Re:  Registration of P3AT

When I bought mine at Cabela's the serial # was printed on the receipt.; It was stolen in Denver while I worked there and was found with other weapons at the scene of a homiside between gang bangers. Now I won't get it back until after the trail, whenever that will be. The police detective asked if it was registered. That way I could get it back. Any way all I have is the receipt. Also the FFL holder keeps records of the transaction and I could get a copy from them and maybe get it notarized. Hope this helps.

I think this is what you will need. Not sure if you need it notarized - I would call and ask exactly what they will accept.

Florida law prevents Kel-Tec from keeping any electronic records associating a pistol serial number with the owner’s name. As paper record keeping is so burdensome, expensive and prone to error, you can be assured that Kel-Tec doesn’t know who you are or if you own one of their pistols. This may be one reason Kel-Tec has never tried to enforce their First-Owner warranty policy :)

Wilson – who’s wishing all states had such laws to prevent easy browsing by liberals snoopers ;)
