    A while back a man was saying he could run SN on guns to see if they are stolen. How was he doing this and is it possible that I can have this type of access?

    The only sure way I know of is to get LE to run the sn.

    B.S. - could mean "blowing smoke"

    And most LEO won't run the number unless they have the gun in hand, because if the no. comes back stolen, they be keeping the gun.hor

    Another the junior G man BOS is BS too, because if the gun was stolen 2 or 3 owners ago, there is no way for the current buyer to know that, short of taking it to the police station, and just try to get the guy who wants you to sign a BOS to agree to that.
