Someone posted this comment about a pistol that had the serial number covered -- "Everyone thinks it’s stupid until some idiot sees an item they like and files a police report as stolen with the serial number you provided in the picture and then you have to prove ownership." Really, some scumbag is going to go to the police and file a false report in an attempt to get your pistol. Do you cover up serial numbers when you take pictures? Why or why not? I never have and especially appreciate being able to see them in pictures of older guns so I can look up date of manufacture.
