Check if a firearm is stolen
Unless you buy a gun brand new, there is the possibility that it could be stolen. Many gun buyers wrongly assume that a used gun is clean because it came from a reputable dealer. Make sure you are not buying one of the thousands of stolen guns in our database. It's quick and easy to search and we do not collect personal information or log your searches.
HotGunz was created by gun owners who felt that regular citizens should have access to stolen gun information. With law enforcement databases only available to law enforcement personnel, there was no simple way of knowing if a used firearm was in fact a stolen gun. The HotGunz stolen gun database is not all inclusive, but it is quickly making it much more difficult for gun thieves to sell stolen firearms. Since the database was created in January 2009 we have never charged any fees to list a stolen gun or search a stolen gun.
