A Soldiers Rifle
 
I have been poking around trying to get some advice in my quest for my rifle.

Here is my story - Deseret News | Theft victim bounces back after losing it all

It's been some time now and so far the police nor any databases are pulling up my rifle that I had rigged to train for my deployment. I know it seem stupid to continue questing but would anyone here have some sound advice for someone who doesn't want to give up on something important to them?

My guess is that the thief still has it hidden away as he sits in prison.

Welcome to the FTF community and thank you for your service.

The guy's a rat bastid. I'm sorry for your troubles, but congrats on your marriage.

Maybe you & this other soldier could combine your efforts. His items were sold, not sure if it was completely legal, but i am sure it was not ethical.

I wish you all the best of luck in locating your memories & firearms. There are a couple of law enforcement peeps on here; maybe they will have some advice for you.

I also want to thank you for your service, and express my sorrow on your losses.

Did you have serial numbers for the firearms? Are they entered into NCIC? If so they will remain there forever. I have recovered stolen firearms up to 37 years after the theft. Make sure you keep the original reporting agency updated on your current address and phone number. Ask that they enter your new info into the report so they can easily find you in the event of a recovery. I have recovered a few firearms lately who's owners have disappeared. They have not updated their address on their Driver's Licenses, etc. Mail gets returned, no forwarding information. Guns about to be destroyed.

Really not worth the trouble. People tend not to care for stolen guns very well. Unless these have some sentimental value, they have almost no value.

Thanks for the replies guys, yes I have kept the records up to date and I've attended every court hearing I can (which is a pain driving to Utah and back) as well as consistently kept the parole officers informed he may still have this rifle.

Guess it's just time to buy a new rifle and forget it happened. heh.
