A good friend just had two guns stolen in the FL Keys. He thinks they will be sold quickly there or in the Miami area.

- SIG P229. Late model with rail and E2 grips. 9mm

- S&W Shield, FO front sight. 9mm

Both in excellent condition.

Reported to police.

BOLO in FL. Both guns will probably have two mags, no box.

Lesson # 1. The police are often lazy. So, do their work for them. Find the missing weapons at the gun show, on line, or wherever and then report it discreetly. Do not try to be Rambo. A local guy had his high value mag wheels stolen two years ago, but had written down the serial numbers. He checked the media. (I forget whether it was EBay or CraigsList). Sure enough, there they were. He went to look, and said, "I want them, but have to go check with my wife"....The police were very happy to have their work done for them. He broke up a major theft ring, and without having to shoot anyone!

Lesson # 2. Put some weight in the cheap safe or attach it to something heavy. Put "High Voltage" or "Danger" stickers on it, or hide it behind something. Do not make it easy.

Lesson # 3. Please record serial numbers and other details about your collection. You should include notes on when and where you bought the toys. Chain of custody is very important in a criminal case, and you do not want to be questioned about the weapon used in a crime.

Majortoo you are absolutely correct. My wife was held up at gun point at a shopping mall in Hollywood, which is north of Miami. I went around and checked the local pawn shops shops and sure enough I found her jewelry. I told the shop owner I liked a couple pieces and put a $50 deposit on it, which was a good thing because the pawn shop initially denied that they had any jewelry matching my wife's.
The cop pulled out the deposit receipt that I had given him and busted the pawn shop for fencing stolen goods and also tracked down the perp who held up my wife.
I don't think anything would have happened if I didn't do the work first.
