too bad. I hope the police find it. Never had a gun stolen. Though one I sold to someone in another state was stolen form the ups truck after my ffl dealer had sen tit out. I got a visit for the Nj State police who said such and such agun with serial number so and so was used in a robbery and recovered. I was trace to me. i produced the receipt from the ffl dealer showing i had given it to him to ship. He showed the ups reciept and we were off the hook legally. Still it was annoying and I was glad I had the records of it.

It is joining a long list of guns, I have had a few stolen myself, and none have been recovered. There is a black market for them, a pretty big one.

Likely find them in Chicago or E. St. Louis.

Yep, Chicago for sure.

I sold a Baretta SF92 about 15 years ago to a soldier on the base in Mountain Home, Idaho. About ten years later I received a call from Chicago P.D. and they said the gun was used in a robbery. The crummy part is we could not find the "sold to" receipt that we got from the soldier until about a year later. Luckily the P.D. closed the case. The P.D. destroyed the pistol. I am sure it was not in the same condition I sold it in.

The officer I spoke with at the time was actually pretty good to deal with. I do not remember the number of guns they confiscated from crimes but it was a number the libs will never share with you.

I am sorry for the loss of the Ruger.

So I have to ask, why are you posting today about a gun that was stolen almost 4.5 years ago?

Because I occasionally also check with the Sheriffs Office to see if they have found it, they do not always contact the owner as I have learned. I had posted this info when the gun was stolen but it appears you have not been a member here at that time.

Why do you ask, does it bother you that I chose this time?

I can very well imagine that. Gun restrictions are surely a way to raise prices on firearms that are flying underneath the radar of gun control.

When I lived in Indiana I had a gundealer that I favoured and he bought guns from law enforcement auctions by the blue barrel. Those were all confiscated weapons, mostly pistols and a large part was real junky; old Roehms, Ravens and Brycos and many of the guns had the grips with duct tape on it. I also found a few nice H&R break top revolvers, several S&W M-10s and early M&P's and a couple of good Colts.

It doesn't bother me at all. I was curious as to why a post was being made for a gun stolen so long ago. Sorry I didn't search your post history to see if you had posted something 4.5 years ago.

A few people have said that it is probably in Chicago or St. Louis. Actually it is probably out of the country by now. I watched a rather interesting program on Nat Geo channel a few weeks ago on "ghost guns." Ghost Guns - Underworld, Inc. Episode - National Geographic Channel The last part of the show discusses how stolen guns are used in a few crimes for a few months and then resold and resold until they make their way out of the country and resold in Mexico and Central America.

Funny you say you posted it when it happened, but you have no posts from April 2010 until May 2016, so maybe it was another site you posted it on.
Not trying to cause you pain, but your post was rather rude to a valid question.
