It'll only be as good as the amount of participation becomes. I had a gun recently stolen while in one of my son's posession and am glad to see something like this.

The system in place now sure makes certain that you provide information when you take posession of a handgun, but if one gets taken, little concern about getting info about it out there where it may do some good. If the theft is reported, yes, it gets out on the NCIC, but that only comes into play if it gets recovered by police or is used and then recovered during the commission of a crime. I know as a dealer, and I'm far from alone on this sentiment, there really needs to be a more accessable database of stolen weapons out there to be accessable by others than just law enforcement. Hell, some skell can easily try to sell a stolen gun at any shop or pawn broker's and there's no way for the dealer to know if it's hot or not. Private citizens should have access to this info as private party sales of firearms are up also. You could be buying a hot gun from another party and never know it.

My hat's off to whomever set this up.

I hope this go as well I have had 2 weapons stolen reciently ( loaned to a friend so he could teach his wife to shoot and his house was robbed - - insurance paid off but one of them was my duty weapon for several years on the sheriff's dept and I want it back! )

So if anyone runs acorss a Smith & Wesson SS357 model # 66-1 Serial # 9K5090 I really want it back and I would pay to put the SOB behind bars.

I also want my Smith & Wesson model # 22A-1 Serial # UBP8757 back but there is no real attachment to it.

It is a start but it needs an organized data base by make and type. You need to be able to go in and bring up S&W 66 .357 and see a list of serial numbers.

I just filled out the info for a "free membership" and it took about 3 hours for the reply to my email - - - I then started to list my stolen firearms and it will cost $12.99 to do so.

If that had been posted on the home page I would probably have done so, but on the home page it states over and over it's free.

I did not list mine and I'm now done with the site - - - I hate "Bait & Switch"

I will now probably get a bunch of spam - - - I guess I should keep a seperate email account for this type of thing!
