Stamp question

Post by tazlik2fly » Fri Dec 13, 2019 9:24 am

Quick question since I am getting conflicting answers from friends at my gun club. Wife and I have a trust for our can (360 days later finally got to bring her home) what do I actually have to have with me at the range? Just the tax stamp, the trust, or will photo copies lamenated work?

You don't have to carry anything. Bring whatever makes you comfortable.

Check with the range, they may have requirements.

The one I go to required proof for awhile after a bunch of members who made up the local militia went to jail on illegal weapons charges. Then there were guests coming for cowboy shoots that thought 16.5” shotgun barrels were not a problem. It just seemed easier to weed at the idiots ourselves than have the sheriff and ATF showing up to do it.

If my range asked me to see stamp, I'd find another range.

Unless someone has a patch on their jacket that says "ATF", I'm not showing them anything..

And for times like that, I keep a photo of my tax stamp on my phone. I can show it or not to whom I want!

Why would you not want to show someone your tax stamp?

And we're off!

It's my private tax information. That's why.

Can I see your tax returns?

I don’t want to show it to anyone, but I’m not afraid to. It has less personal information on it than my truck registration, which is also a tax document.

It just befuddles me that with all discussions that go on about how 2A is being constantly eroded... Most people have no problem giving up their right to privacy so easily. Very odd.

How is some rando at a gun range asking you for private info any different than a Dr asking if you have guns in the house?

In the case I mentioned the “rando” at the gun range questioned people if they had a stamp. A surprising number that were asked, wanted to know why they needed one. The intent was to keep ignorant idiots from committing felony’s.

This came about because members of a private range/club were using that range for illegal activity and possessing illegal weapons on that private property.

It is an ongoing effort to police our own membership and educate the ignorant masses. Public education, self preservation.

Not all of the land used for the range is owned by the club, some of the buffer is leased from a timber company. Illegal activity can be an automatic cancelation of the lease. That could be problematic.
