Free Firearms Inventory Software

A good gun can last a lifetime and is usually handed down from one generation to the next. If you suffer a loss due to theft, burglary or a fire or other form of natural disaster, you will need an adequate record of your firearms for insurance purposes or, in the case of theft or burglary, to provide relevant information to the authorities in order to have some hope of recovering your firearms. Things like value, type, model and serial number(s) will all be required to establish proof of your loss. You will need to be prepared to provide your insurance company or local law enforcement authorities with an accurate record of what you have lost.

Most firearm inventory software is quite expensive and is usually directed at FFL gun dealers rather than the individual homeowner with a limited firearms inventory who needs a simple way to keep track of their firearms.

There is a free firearms inventory software program called GunSafe available. It can be downloaded here in a zip file at:


This is a great little program that will allow the average homeowner to keep an accurate inventory record of your firearms. You can also track cleaning and maintenance and store pictures or other notes about your firearms with this program. I also use the “Notes” section to track ammo type and amount.

This software is provided as-is and works on Windows 98/NT4/2000/XP/Vista.

It does NOT run Mac or Linux.

Got inventory record?

Staying above the water line!

Thanks RW.
I've been using a home grown doc for mine. This will make it much easier.

It's a very useful and simple program. I was using an Excel spreadsheet until I found this program. It has a couple of examples to help you get started using it. Enjoy! Thanks.

This is great, but I'd caution about entering firearm serial #s on your computer's hard drive, lest way down the road (or maybe not so far), authorities take information from it and use for their purposes.

Printing out the sheets and handwriting the information onto them makes a lot of sense. Also, I've heard of some using a deck of cards and encoding the information on them - use your own code.

I know - tinfoil hat stuff for sure, but nowadays, a little caution may be required.

Great tip! Thanks. I generally print a hard copy of serial numbers for reference.

Great little program - dumped the Excel and went to this - reminder that a copy of your firearm inventory belongs in the Bank Lock-box

Since this article comes up in search results still, I figure I'd mention that there is a newer alternative for managing your firearm collection on your computer. MyGunDB runs on Windows, Linux, OS X and mobile devices. A free version is available at

Nice information. You people can take help from the MA Gun License to get guns with all the legalities but he thing is that they don't need to be used again and again without any necessity.
