    If your gun gets stolen do you ever get them back if leo's find them?

    Yes.

    Once it is no longer needed as evidence against the person found with it... it is returned to you if you reported it as stolen and actually had the SN written down.

    The only way to identify a gun is stolen is if the bad guy tells you, you find it tossed in the storm water drain, or you run the SN of guns you come across.

    I had a Glock stolen a few years back. A year after it was stolen I got a phone call that it had been recovered, it took another 1.5 years from then until it was released to me. Held for evidence against the guy who it was recovered from.

    No. You will never see this firearm again.

    Anyone who buys it will be advised to cut it up into tiny pieces and dump it into a lake. You may wish that a responsible person will turn it in so you may recover it, but chances are it will be destroyed by persons fearful of getting caught with it.

    Honesty never works. It's in the bottom of a lake somewhere.

    According to advice probably received by members of OCDO.

    IMO.... If the SN has been destroyed you as the owner are not going to be getting that gun back.

    Even if the number is somehow made visible due to chemical processing to make it partially appear. The police would be giving you back your gun with an altered SN and being in possession of it in that condition is a crime.

    So you could carry it in that condition and blame the police for letting you have it. You also show them your receipt when you picked it up. Nice way to violate the law and make it appear that the police gave you permission.

    The metal plate on a Glock is very thin. Removing that plate makes it impossible to recover the SN since the rest of the gun is plastic.

    Sure, if you want to turn it in to the police and tell them you bought it from your brother.... they can then lock up your brother for selling you the gun w/o a serial number.

    Yes, you can pay for a lawyer and have him turn it over to the police keeping you safe. But now you are out even more money. You lost cash on the purchase and now you are going to shell out more for an attorney.

    If you really feel it is worthwhile to give it to the police, how about placing it in a safe place and call the police to report it is there from a payphone.

    You can watch and make sure they pick it up.

    I remember seeing that story and thinking it was sad that such a cool gun was stolen. I'm quite glad to see a happy ending finally happened. :celebrate

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Same here, b/c the original topic just stated that the Sheriff was looking for the owner. I think anyway.
