    I tried even called atf. Because we were married she was "an equal owner". I showed receipt (card in just my name) and empty box and even showed judge proof that it was purchased by me. Still never got it back. Oh well at least now I can buy all tge guns I want when I want!

    Yes, I had a Colt stolen from me. The Idiot took it to a pawn shop. Luckily I gave the LEO pictures and the serial numbers. The pawn shop ran the numbers and it showed up as stolen. I got it back. The other gun they stole I never retrieved. The perp that was caught did not get charged because he said he bought it off someone else. Carma has it that the punk was under the Sheriffs eyes for selling dope. They finally caught him in the act of stealing equipment from a Church. He is now property of the state pen system.

    As a note, I would recommend taking digital photo's of all your weapons from all angles, including the serial number. Type up a spread sheet with all the info as well. This made the process easier when getting back a weapon that was stolen.

    Some years back I had a Hi-point subcompact 9mm that was stolen from me. After 2 1/2 years went by I received a call from the Nebraska State Troopers telling me that the made an arrest and recovered my gun.

    I was really shocked. I was always told that most of the time the weapons never get retuned to the owners.
     
  9. what state is this? In any state with pistol registration the person whos name it in holds ultimate legal responsibility and is required by law to have it in their possession. I don't see how they can ignore it.

    You know had it been a Glock they wouldn't have called you.... I guess they had a door stop for the office already. LOL

    In California, any and all guns purchased while married become community property, and it makes no difference who the gun is registered to. Don't ask me how I know, but feel free to consult with my two divorce attorneys, one of which came over to my house yesterday with his new car and thanking me for it!

    Thankfully I haven't, I was just curious, still unsure if i wanna keep my gun in my truck. You never know if it may be stolen along with the gun.

    Don't give her the combo to the safe!
     
  17. I took a look, no handgun registration means no specific owner holding legal responsibility, therefore it is treated as common property.

    Sorry man. I'm in LE but I honestly wouldn't be above stealing it back.

    Not to derail this thread, but I've learned how important it was to keep the original sales receipts for my gun collection to prove exactly when and how much I paid for the guns. Many guns she is going after were purchased prior to the marriage which would not be deemed common property.
