If you have a C&R license and buy a C&R qualifying gun from a gunshow without using the license, does the purchase have to be recorded in the gun log. I got my license about two months ago. I have been collecting for two years now and already had made purchases way before I even knew about getting the license. What is my obligation about recording the previous purchases as well?? I have read the paperwork sent with the license but didn't see this covered or missed it.
