      Old Rifle Registration

      I have a 22 that my uncle gave me years ago. I went to the range once when i was a kid with it with my father who had a Firearms permit at the time. Thats about the extent of its use.

      Fast forward to present day about 6-8 years later i currently have a firearms permit and own a handgun. I went to the range a few times with my Beretta and thought with the price of ammo it would be great to bring my 22 and spread out my 9mm consumption. I have a feeling that the rifle may need to be registered in some way? i know when i bought my handgun there were all those special permits. is there something i have to do to be able to bring this 22 to the range? or are rifles good to go as long as you have a firearms card and its obviously that its not stolen? Its pretty old and therefore i dont know if it needed to be registered when it was bought new in the first place. let me know what you think.

      In CT, the gub would not have to be registered unless it was a handgun. Rifles and shotguns do not have to be registered when sold amongst private parties. Call you state firearms licensing agency.

      yeah i actually read that and wasnt sure how to interpret it. as far as i can tell it basically says as long as we all have FICs that we are good to go from what i can tell. but im sure everyone has a different way to interpret it and wanted to be sure.

      i called the nj firearms place and they didnt get back to me yet. Another form i found was the rifle transfer form. it had bassic info and 10 questions that u have to answer and sign to say ur not crazy. i read where u send it to and its to noowhere. The seller and buyer get a copy but state doesnt require a copy. so its basically for the seller in that the person signed and attested they werent crazy and therefore remove liability if they are.

      In the section I referenced, it talks about giving to family members. It looks like you are OK without any registration or FIC card.
