    Phil,

    You have the serial # listed. I assume You called the Sheriffs Dept , reported the loss, so THAT # is listed in the Natl Crime Info Computer (NCIC) system??

    Phil,

    Best of luck on getting that gun back. By the way, how is that Cooper shooting that I sold you?

    Thanks Matt
    Cooper will ONLY (with me behind the wheel) do about 1 1/2 inch group at 200yds. So no idea what it actually will group with someone that can shoot a rifle.

    I think I'm going to purchase some cable and a lock. Run it through the trigger and through the rib. I don't think that the theives would want to take just the stock and fore end, would they?

    I never let my Silver Sietz out of my site. The only time it is in the rack is right before I take the line. After I am done shooting it goes right back in the trunk of the Benz.

    They make a combination lock with a retractable cable for ski's. Can be put in the pocket or bag.

    Phil, Paul told me that you were hoping your gun would reappear in a gun rack after last night's shooting - did it?

    Just a FYI for anyone who may have had a gun stolen. The NCIC system is the database maintained by the FBI in which stolen guns (and many other things) are housed. Entries are are made by whomever the theft was reported to. Entries are stored in an active file for four years plus the remainder of the year in which it was entered (stolen vehicles fall into purge criteria). Stolen guns are one of the rare entries that do not have a purge criteria and should theoretically stay active in the system until recovered. However, the entering agency is also charged with the responsibility to validate the entry on a yearly basis. This is a hole in the system. Validations are done by the entering agency contacting the victim to see if the gun was recovered (and for a variety of reasons) not reported. If contact can't be made, "some" agencies will eventually remove the entry. Therefore, an inquiry on an active entry may not return a stolen hit at some point. Since the system isn't perfect, the victim should be sure to check every year or two to see that the entry is still active.

    More FYI. Some manufacturers will maintain their own database on stolen articles. This way if the gun (or any article) appears for repair work or warranty work, the manufacturer can take proper action. Of course, few people know about this and it would be the responsibility of the victim to contact the manufacturer to 1) see if they do maintain theft records and 2) to report the loss.

    More. Thefts in most jurisdictions are low priority crimes. Unless there is a viable lead to follow, thefts rarely get investigated. However, there are some actions a victim can undertake himself. Checking local pawn shops would be one action and posting a reward for information leading to the recovery would be another.
