Wallet Stolen - FID question regarding sale?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I recently had my wallet stolen, reported it and all, but had my FID card in it. Still waiting on replacement, but wanted to sell a few firearms and was wondering if I could still do so legally? I remember somewhere it's only necessary for purchase and not sale, but wasn't sure. Should I fill out my FID number (I have old CoE and Pictures of my FID) or just leave it blank if it is allowed?

 

Thanks :)

Cmon people. Keep your orig FiD in the safe and carry copies around. I have a copy in three different range bags. And would keep a copy in the glove box of car (so I wouldn't have to open the bag to show a cop). But I won't keep one in the car in case my car gets burglarized

FPIDs are kept in wallets of those who purchase long guns and ammo frequently.

What good is a copy, nobody is going to accept a copy when an FID card is required.  And in your subsequent post you suggest color copy and laminate and no one is going to know - I think that doing so might actually be considered a felony.

Wouldn't that be a counterfiet ID?

Only if it is used for ID. The law says you can not exhibit a fake government issued document.

So you might as well laminate a blank piece of paper, as the color copied laminated one serves no legal purpose and once you show it to someone you are a criminal.

Fine. Then you guys can carry around DAILY a document that if it gets lost is harder to replace than a passport in most municipalities.

Agree with you that what you have to go through to get a replacement is crazy.  But using a copy is no different than handing a cop a copy of a driver's license or using a copy of a passport, all of these acts are illegal.  Will anything come of it, maybe or maybe not; but it is still illegal.

I'll bet its going to be easier to replace a lost FPID than getting one back if its taken away. And to pile on they take your guns too, throw in lawyer fees....but thats just my own lack of a comfort zone & paranoia talking here...like said above maybe nothing comes of it....maybe. I highly doubt an FFL or private sale would knowingly accept it anyway so whats the purpose of it?. Would you accept a copy in a private sale?

Too many divergences here. Would I accept a "copy" if I was selling to someone ? If it's an exact replica of one laminated how would I know the diffferremce ?

 

And guys stop it with the drivers license comparison. Your privelege to drive is not deternined my a piece of paper. You either have it or its revoked. If I get pulled over and I don't have my license and I say to the cop. "I don't have my license with me. But here is apiece of paper with my DL # you can run it. I WILL NOT GO TO JAIL. I AM NOT A CRIMINAL. the worst I would get is a failure to produce.

 

So stop with the DL comparisons. Stop thinking a piece of paper makes you legal. It doesn't.

 

Edit: How abiut this. I hand him a photo copy of my license in black and white: I will not be arrested.

A piece of paper does not make you legal, but or presenting a non-official document can land you in jail wether it be an FID or a license or any other official document when you try to pass it off as the original. That said when I travel I keep a photo copy of my passport with me, not to try to cross a border with but to present if needed to a US consulate to facilitate getting a new one.

I just decided to put my copy of my FID into my range bag as the same compartment that my loaded mags are in.

 

I dance with the devil!!

Having those loaded mags will just be an added on charge to the fake FPID and now you're really screwed. You need to think about what you're doing to your family etc...

Just kidding lol. I bring loaded mags all the time to the range, just did some now and headed out.

    • I have recently updated (clean install) to Windows 10 Pro from 7.  This PC is a desktop without a touchscreen, is not on a domain, the user account is a full administrator account, not the default limited "administrator" account, and the user account is a local account.  On at least Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7, Server 2003, and Server 2008, when users are required to enter CTRL ALT DEL to log in/unlock, and a screensaver is active when trying to unlock the PC, pressing CTRL ALT DEL will immediately deactivate the screensaver and bring up the password prompt.  On Windows 10, same scenario, pressing CTRL ALT DEL only deactivates the screensaver, acting like simply any other key press and only showing the lock screen, forcing users to press CTRL ALT DEL a second time to get the password prompt. Besides the fact that Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom, constantly "improves" "features" by making them worse or more annoying, am I missing something?  I just want CTRL ALT DEL to work as it has for the last 20 years - pressing any key should instantly deactivate the screensaver, and CTRL ALT DEL should immediately bring up the password prompt on a locked PC.  Netplwiz > Require users to press CTRL ALT DEL - checked GPEdit > Do not display the lock screen - Enabled or disabled has had no effect, have not found any other relevant settings Screen Saver Settings - On Resume, display login screen - checked (no difference if unchecked) Don't think I've done anything in regedit that would have any effect on this. Settings>Personalization>Lock Screen > Show lock screen  background picture on the sign-in screen set to "off" It is possible I've missed or messed with something in "Settings" somewhere, but nothing stands out in my memory.   So is this just a new "feature" I have to retrain 20 years worth of habits, or is there some stupid setting I am missing?  Google has been utterly useless so far.
    • The new jl can fit 35's stock. Don't even need a lift.  My 2014 required 2" of lift and flat fenders. ROCK Krawler springs and tetraflex trackbars plus their upgraded steering links. I stayed low CG and spent the money on full belly skid system from rock hard 4x4. 
    • I have a 2016 Jeep JK unlimited and love it, even more than all the pickup trucks I’ve owned. Being able to lock things up with the hardtop also played a role in that. Plus being able to take the top and doors off is golden, not to mention the true off-road capabilities 
    • I have owned nothing but jeeps.  If you've never owned a wrangler and just want something to have fun with you'll be happy.  If you're looking for a daily driver or commuter vehicle, get a Kia.  
    • Posted today on their FB page ... We had our final inspections today. We have to fix a few small things but we will be ready for re-inspection early next week. After that just waiting on our governor....
