    Gunshops and Firearms sales logs...

    Anyone know how long a dealer has to keep his books for legally?

    Just asking because i have a friend trying to track down his first rifle that he sold / traded to H & F Dunedin.

    Cheers,

    F.

    I don't know the answer to that but I will say,
    If I bought a gun from a shop and then to find they had given my information out to someone trying to find the rifle I would not be pleased. I can't imagine H&F will give your mate that sort of info.

    It would be a breach of privacy for H&F to provide that information to another party, but would be perfectly acceptable for them to contact the person themselves using the information they have.

    Whether they could be arsed is a whole different matter....:-P

    Yeah, they're finicky like that. I remember going into a sports store, years ago, whereby I wanted to know the date when I purchased a certain firearm. The owner, the same guy I purchased it off, said he'd look it up when he had the time! Being naively innocent, I kindly offered my time to search for it in his book, as I had plenty of it, to which he refused, citing that I'd have access to all who purchased firearms off him in the last 20 years or so, and that'd never do!

    I don't believe he ever managed to tell me when I made my purchase, whether that be due to genuinely not finding it or genuinely not looking, however, I do believe they're supposed to hold onto that info for a long time. It was something like ten years or so ago that I approached him, and I was enquiring about a purchase I did some twenty years or so earlier!

    Just ring them up and ask them!

    The Firearms Regulations state that a dealer must keep his old arms books for at least 5 years after the date of the last entry.
