Yeah, Cork, that last is the most vague...like what about CRs you owned BEFORE you got the CRFFL, or the one I bought via yellow sheet from a store AFTER my CRFFL expired but before I got my new one, that went through NICS and everything?
I thought I read somewhere a specific line in the regs that said something like you "must log any firearms purchased through the use of your license,
" but I'll be darned if I can find it now
Now as for the modifying, I have SEVERAL HIGHLY modified CRs that are nothing like the ones I bought and first logged, but they are still logged like they were originally....
How could they sell "Parts guns," or in some cases just "rebuildable" barrelled ACTIONS as CR if it was illegal?
Now on the OTHER hand, many years ago I had an East German Makarov that I was using as a "carry gun" stolen, and when I dutifully reported it to the ATF as required, I DID get the "20 Questions" on the call back (after of course I managed to convince them it was a PISTOL and not an "MAK assault rifle'" which is what they THOUGHT it was...
She had NO clue, and that's probably why I got the call....) about why I was "using it" that way, and if I properly logged it in and out EACH day I took it out of my house for "that purpose," and I hammered back at her "Are you saying if I take any of mine to the RANGE to shoot I have to log them back in and out EVERY TIME????" and she kind of stammered, well, no....and then asked if I at least had it notated in my log that it was my "carry gun?"
I of COURSE said "Yes."
