    Default LTC PIN

    Hmm had a thought run through my head when purchasing a new gun recently. How secret should you keep your PIN? At the store, they asked I told them, certainly overheard by the guy quietly waiting for the mail to arrive with his transfer. Never gave it a thought before, could that be abused in my way by someone who knew it? I suppose technically they would need an LTC with my name on it in conjunction with the PIN

    Considering that PDs will often give out your PIN over the phone, I'm going to go ahead and say that it's already not much of a secret.

    Use a fine tip marker and write it on the back. I've never had a problem and they dont ask cuz its right in their hand
    I'd rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it

    I wouldn't recommend that being that it is being used in lieu of your fingerprint. That in itself puts into into a personal info type category similar to your SSN.

    Kinda defeats the whole purpose of having a pin doesn't it?

    I put my PIN in the gray membrane

    Not secret at all. Mine's on the back of my license so I'll always know it.

    And not really they still need the license and it has a picture and your stats on it.

    There is no purpose except maybe to be a minor annoyance to those of us who use them.
