Missouri makes it a violation of state law for a licensed dealer to violate the federal provision prohibiting dealers from transferring a firearm or armor-piercing ammunition to any person unless the dealer notes in the required records the name, age, and place of residence of the purchaser if the purchaser is an individual, or the identity and principal and local places of business of the purchaser if the purchaser is a corporation or other business entity.1

Missouri has no other retention or reporting requirements for firearm sales or background check records.
