    My brother had his stainless 10" barrelled Ruger Mk. II along with a bass guitar stolen. A year later he found the bass in a pawn shop, police took it as evidence & didnt return it until another year passed & my brother demanded it be returned to him. The thief was never caught & the Ruger is still in the wind.

    Maser, FWIW I spent the biggest part of my working life in LE. We recovered all kinds of stolen firearms in all kinds of situations. Some stolen many years before, many states away,etc. We made every effort to reunite the recovered guns with the lawful owner. I know of no case where we attempted to charge the victim with a crime.....

    Grandfather had his Colt .38 stolen way back. It was a shame as that is what he carried while delivering payroll on NYC docks during the depression.

    During a move to/from Korea, Dad's pre-65 Win 70 30.06 was stolen. He got a replacement, but not as good (1967).

    Later on, his Luger P1 (WW-II trophy) was stolen. Never got it back.

    For me...no. Seldom leave the farm. Consequences for an intruder would be "uncomfortable".

    You reported a felony, named the perpetrator, and the police refused to act? Time to call the state troopers. Or the county sheriff.
