Don't feel bad I can't read worth a hoot before my first cup o' joe in the A.M. either.

That stinks that your grand dad's rifle was stolen. My dad had his dad's Colt 1911 stolen out of his van that my grand dad been issued when he was commissioned as a Captain in the Texas National Guard (he had been a Texax Ranger).

If your rifle's serial number hasn't been entered into N.C.I.C after a week you need to be raising cain with the chief. We enter stolen guns ASAP. All legitimate pawn shops have to report all of their transactions to police if not daily, in a "reasonable" time.

well, one of two things happens when someone steals a gun...they sell it as fast as they can and get $ for w.e.

OR they keep it and use it to shoot up the hood.

Best of luck at the pawn shops...hope you get your rifle back.

That is true and also why I have any hope at getting it back. Since its a drop breach single shot rifle its kinda slow to shoot if you are not properly trained. I really doubt that these thugs are trained so they are just gonna get rid of it. If it was my pistol or my sks Im sure that they would keep it and use it.

Don't forget outdoorstrader.com (state specific search) and gunsamerica.com They are both handy for non-FFl's to move guns. gunbroker.com's not a bad place to look either. Good luck

I had a pistol stolen from a house I was "house sitting" for my Sister's Friend in the 1980's.
Did all the routine stuff, same stuff you've done.
8 months later.... I got a letter saying I could come and claim my pistol at the Police Station in the jurisdiction.
The caught the burglars, but it took a long time for the wheels of justice to grind them up.
Point being.... it might take some time to recover it.
About the time you give up, well miracles never cease.

Default Good news!!!

I finally have some good news. Right as I got off work today my bank called and told me someone tryed to pass one of my stolen checks at another bank. I hauled butt across town to the bank and gave them my report # and phone #. They sent out an alert to all of there other branches. Before I even got home (maybe 20min) I get a call from the manager of a different branch. They tried to pass another check and that they were being arrested as we spoke. A few minutes later I get a call from the police and they told me they got 2 of the 3 guys who were passing the check. I think as long as they have not already unloaded all of my stuff I will hopefully get it back.

Bigbomar,

I assume you live in Lubbock! Be sure and check with the local PD who took your report and assure they have a pawn division. Just so you know most agencies have a pawn division who monitor all pawned material and get a monthly report from the pawn shop. In most states it is the law. You are doing the correct things. I would also keep an eye on the local paper classifieds if they have gun sales as well as anything listed on Gun Broker and other online sources for gun sales by entry date!
Good luck my brother and the only good gun thief is a dead one!

03

At this point If I get in the same room as them when I leave I will be charged with murder. so that might not be a good idea. But at the same time I realy do hope that they resisted arrest and that the pd had to at the very least taze them.
