Gun Sense #18, Misplaced LTC or FID in Ma.?

I hope this does not happen to you, but if you ever lose, (as in opps, where is it?) your Ma. Firearm License, LTC or FID you can get it replaced by going to the police station where you originally filled out the application for the license. The police will or should have on file proof that you got the license through them and take care of the problem by getting a replacement for you. And also call the Firearms Licensing Bureau at 617-660-4780 or 4600 to tell them that you have lost your firearm license, this is so they can notify the National Instant Check System (NICS) people to be on alert in case someone tries to fraudulently use your lost license.

You should have a place where you keep important records and have on file the number that is on your LTC or FID so you can tell the police what the number is as well as the people at the Firearms Licensing Bureau, . You will be issued a different number than the one you previously had , the original number will be ‘red flagged’.

It is also a very good idea to have on file a list of the serial numbers, manufacturer, model and caliber/mm/ga., on individual index cards for each gun that you own in case of theft, ONE gun on each card, in order to help the police identify your property when and if it is recovered. Do not give them a list of every gun that you own, just the gun(s) stolen. They do not have a need to know what you own.
