Go to the seller where you purchased the gun.

Yes, it is possible as long as it is a registered gun that was obtained legally.
Go back to the store where you bought it.
Ask your local police to run it.

You can find these numbers in the manual that come with your gun. They are also present on the handle of the gun.
You find a published list of serial numbers for the maker.
Go the the gunshop or person you bought it from.
You can't. Contact the police if you believe it is stolen.
Contact your local police and ask them to run the serial number.
Contact police, provide them with the information you DO have. See if you can contact the person you bought the gun from, and if they have a record. Next time, record serial numbers, keep them in a safe place, along with photos.
There is no practical way for a private citizen to do this- but dealing with a licensed gun dealer is a good way to go. Information, such as serial numbers of stolen firearms, etc, are on a database that is not available to a non-police officer.
Contact your local police department and give them the serial number. The Police can check on the stolen gun list maintained by the BATFE. If the gun is stolen, the Police will conficate the piece and begin investigation of how it was acquired.
You can find serial numbers in the Blue Book of Gun Values and at proofhouse.com.
You can't- unless you are a law enforcement officer. However, if you are concerned that a gun you are considering buying may be stolen, see if your local law enforcement will run the serial number for you.
That's not information which can be readily looked up, not to mention that serial numbers are not unique to one firearm - a make and model would be needed, as well.
No way to answer. Sorry.

Contact your local law enforcement. They can check to see if the serial number has been entered as a stolen item. IF there is a report, the officer will need to retain the gun to return it to the owner. They WILL need to have the gun in hand to do this, not over the phone.
For date made, try Proofhouse.com or maker's website. To see if stolen, contact your local police.
It depends on what you mean. If you mean is it possible to find out who purchased a handgun or if the gun is registered by the serial number, the basic answer is, no. If you mean can you find information about the gun itself by the serial number, you can sometimes find information by contacting the manufacturer.
Probably not online, but any local police station can run the serial number and tell you. If it did turn up stolen, you wouldn't be in any trouble, but you would lose the gun.
I think you will find that the police will confiscate the gun and ask you WHO sold it to you///
