How do you mark your guns?

    The cat bumped my elbo well I was adjusting the dial on the way back machine. I went too far and all my marks were erased. I'll likely leave them that way........

    Not my guns. For identification purposes all legally registered guns over here have a title linked to your firearms' licence.

    Only things discretely marked with my initials (plain scratched with the tip of a knife) are plastic mags of my CZ & Ruger .22LR mags, to avoid confusions at the range table.

    I am pagan and I want to put protection runes on my magazines so a metal marker or paint pen would work?

    I open my fly, pull it out and pee on my guns.  it can get messy, but after some time it will dry..... :D  :D  :D

    i dont mark my guns.  I have more guns than my shooting friends and i know what i have.   My tastes are more old school and most of my friends are new tinkertoy guns.   I do have some tinkertoy guns, but they are different.

    About the only thing i may mark is a mag.  Since i have some older CZs, they dont like the newer mags, so i have to go through all of my CZ mags and mark the ones that will work in the older CZs.

    Also if i were to bring out a bunch of my guns, we keep our guns separate.  Or i will only open/use a few at a time.

    if marking your guns/mags works for you, more power to you.

    Over here in our Socialist Utopia we are not allowed to mark our guns to differentiate them from other similar guns. Everything/everyone has to be equal................

    My hunting rigs and EDC's I don't plan on losing, so I don't mark them at all.

    My "throw down" guns, OTOH, have my name, address, and phone number Dremmeled all over them, since I don't really want to throw them away.

    The only things I mark are the 6.8SPC Mags.
    I do have an excel spreadsheet with make, model, serial number, caliber and estimated value.  Have pictures of each on a couple of thumb drives in a safe place.

    Not that I have any guns, ever have, or ever intend to have any, but I hear tell that they're already marked with this thing called a serial number.  Some, so I hear, actually write down the serial number, make, model and other identifying characteristics and store that information in a safe place.

    That's just what I hear, though.  I can't say from experience.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.
