    Is there a known database where one who buys guns can go and search to see if guns are stolen. I would hate to be caught with a gun that is stolen.
    I came across this website (http://www.hotgunz.com/) does anyone know if it's legitimate?

    In the past month, there has been 6-7 break-ins in the St. Louis, MO, area, one of which people working in an adjacent store had 4 rounds fired at them as they called the police, breaking the front window but hurting no one.
    The stores hit were in Des Peres (11/8), Affton & Valley Park (11/10), and High Ridge (Jefferson County), Crestwood, MO, on 11/27, all suburbs of St. Louis, Edwardsville, IL (Madison County) on 11/30. The three on the 8th & 10th appear to be related as videos show the same Acura SUV at all three. ATF indicates the High Ridge and Crestwood attacks may be related but have yet to tie them to the others.

    I bought a safe and a serious safe; actually 2 safes.
    The safes came with 3/8" expansion bolts. My contractor said I have 1/2" and 3/4" expansion bolts in my truck and gave me 4 3/4" Kwik Bolt Carbon Steel Expansion Anchors.
    Some firearms, we can easily replace with insurance money. Other firearms, we can't replace because they are family heirlooms. My father's early nineteen sixties 30-06 Remington 760 pump or his same era 1100 are priceless to me. Although they are plain vanilla stuff and not particularly valuable to you; they are priceless to me.

    Sadly as today's world is full of thieves and firearms are easily sold we need to protect what is dear to us. The reason is simple, we can't replace it. Oh yeah, we can buy another one at a gun show and inexpensively; however, none of use can replace our first whatever or the ones or diseased parent used for so many years.
    I know a safe isn't a cheap date; nor is a firearm from your family's roots.

    I had two marlin rifles stolen from my brother in law's camp last year. One was a 336C lever action 30-30 with a nikon scope, the other was a 45-70 government lever action with a nikon scope. Both were given to me by my late father months before his death. My brother in law will not admit that he took my rifles up there without my knowledge. It's sad, I miss my dad and now this kinda crap has got to happen.

    Not unless he had a separate rider on his homeowners policy listing each firearm and a complete description ) and sometimes photos ) . Hopefully he has that coverage .

    WHO PUT THE SERIAL NUMBER ON THE GUN YOU REMEMBER BUYING?

    SOMEONE THINKS OF A SERIAL NUMBER TO REPORT TO IDENTIFY A GUN AS THEIR GUN. WHO WANTS TO BUY A GUN AND WHO DO THEY THINK TO GO TO SEARCHING FOR A GUN TO BUY THEY THINK IS NOT STOLEN BY THE ONE WHO ALREADY HAS IT IN THEIR POSSESSION?

    Sorry for your loss; I don't believe there is any chance of positive ID with the above information. Even if ten of them are found together.
