Re: Stolen Gun

That is a sad story, and a hard lesson...but a few years ago, I was in the same boat.
Had a very nice custom left hand rifle and went deer hunting...like you I got busy when I got home, was going again the next morning, and left it with Binoculars, range finder, and my sons 243 that his grand father gave him in my truck licked.

Had the keyless entry, and just threw keys in floorboard under seat, locked the truck.
My son came in late, did not have garage opener, opened truck, garage door...and forgot to lock truck..
Next morning, truck gone and all the guns, and supplies...
Took a day or two to find the truck, but all was gone...
I gave the police my numbers off my gun, but did not have it for other gun, or supplies...
Next morning after theft, they raided a drug house, about 10 miles from me, found the gun, ran the numbers..but since it took me a day or two to get them the numbers, it came up, not owned.

4 years later, when the police were cleaning out the gun vault, as it were, before crushing them, they ran the numbers....they called me and I got it back..

So, the reason I am telling you this is it could show up....you never know.

Re: Stolen Gun

Man that just bites. Any chance anyone other than yourself knew that you had left it there. Not insinuating anything but that's an awful lot of coincidence you'd get hit on that particular night.

We've been hit at our office a number of times where they broke into employees cars while they were out of town and not once did they get into the trunks. Hit fast and run.

My thought exactly, how many times do they go through the trunk? It's usally a fast hit and run.

To add to it, my shooting partner had his competition gun stolen about 5 months ago from his truck. We are starting to think someone at the range has been keeping an eye out. They said they are close to an arrest on the person that stole my buddies set up, so it will be interesting to run it against the clubs roster.

Re: Stolen Gun

Unfortunately I have not heard an update yet. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

I will keep you all posted, and thanks for keeping an eye out.

Re: Stolen Gun

sounds to me like someone at the range who knew where you lived or god forbid a "friend" who has a good idea of your MO. Ive known too many instances where friends of friends were the ones who stole from someone over the years.
