I had a mailer from Academy and noticed a rebate on a Remington 870 Express. Price is $289.99 - $50 MIR = $239.99 + tax, which is a great price for a solid shotgun. Academy flier image is attached. I also found the Remington rebates page and note that these rebates are valid for purchases 8/1/16 through 9/30/16. It looks like the rebate is good at any retailer and I saw that Cabelas.com also shows rebates available.

Rebates, just another way to track down gun owners ...

  As opposed to the federal form you just filled out to purchase the gun?

Any other stores with good deals on an 870?  $240 AR is pretty hot for this gun, but Academy doesn't sell it online & the nearest store for me is ~ 200 miles.

There is a law that prohibits the information on that form from being saved. Of course, the FFL that you purchased from has to record name and serial number anyway, and that information can never be destroyed, is subject to ATF inspection with short notice while the business is still operating under that license. If a business that has an FFL closes or cancels their license, those records are surrendered to the ATF. How else do you think weapons with a serial number are traced back to gun shops after a shooting? All that information is available. 

Besides paying cash to a private party, there's only one way to purchase a firearm LEGALLY without a record of the transaction. There's still a "background check" which is more extensive than going to Academy, so this doesn't apply to criminals. But it is possible to have no purchase or serial numbers recorded if that's what you are concerned with. Luckily, the type of people that go this route aren't criminals and may not even realize this.
