Re: H&R Sportsman
He won it in 1958? The serial number was used by H&R in 1941. I don't know where you live nor the state laws there. T he Federal Gun Control Act , as far as I know , had nothing to do with registering handguns. In most states handguns do not have to be registered. Some states have laws that to purchase a handgun the purchased has to be registered and have a permit. A call to your local law enforcement can clear it up or if you want to list your state of residence I'm sure someone on the board can fill you in on any requirements.
