Yep, 439 of them actually!
Ok. This is the story, I'll condense it as much as I can since I am not a criminal.
My friend took professional pics of my sons 1st Bday for free (he does it for a living) back in Oct 2010. Couple months later, he said he was looking for a Mini 14 for sentimental reasons. I had one inherited from my father so gave it to him.
Couple months after that I told him I was looking for a better pistol to carry and protect my family with. The P90 was my father's and I only had it since it was one of the only things I had of his left after he was killed. He found the deal on this HK and said he was semi interested in the P90. We went out shooting and found it was broken. He said he'd take the P90, order the HK, and I could make payments for the balance we agreed on since I didn't have enough cash at that time.
To further my defense, I am a decorated 2x time Iraq war veteran, was responsible for $5 million in sensitive/classified encrypted security systems while a Non Commissioned Officer, held the 2nd highest security clearance possible from the Department of Defense for over 6 1/2 years before receiving an honorable discharge in Oct 2008, and my worst crime is a 12mph over speeding ticket 6 years ago.
I also have a concealed carry permit and multiple guns in my name as well.
Hope that helps.
