As an buyer, I don't think you are required to keep them, however, as a seller, you are supposed to keep them for 20 years."The DPS-67-C is to be retained by the seller for 20 years."Source: http://www.ct.gov/dps/cwp/view.asp?a=2158&q=294488
Crikey, I got one over the weekend and damn near pooped my pants!
...the larger question is WHY they want "de facto" registration forms? It is illegal under Federal law to maintain those records beyond 60-days. The State Police has the duty to perform the NICS background check and Authorize the transfer, but NOT to maintain a de facto registry of everyone's guns. More to come soon I'm sure!
"Go to the sporting goods store State Police and bring me the form 4473 DPS-3..."
If you sell a gun to an out of state dealer there is no DPS3 form involved.
Sorry, but it's illegal for the Feds to keep the records.
The CSP "registry" is not even accurate.
