So this is why you MUST record your serial numbers so if someone does manage to steal a firearm, you can report it and maybe get it back IF it is ever found.
Im in that boat now. My neice who was living with us took two of mine while I was out of town working. Traded them off. I didnt find out it was her until a month after I reported it to the police. WITH model numbers, descriptions and serial numbers. Tennis show print gave her up. She's sitting in lockup since Memorial day and we still dont have the people she gave them too. Im still hoping but they may be long gone by now. Lake bottom or something. She's a juvenile, and first time in the system so they are reducing it from two class c felonies to one misdemeanor.
Im a little bent out of shape over it all (okay, a lot), but still hoping she gets the message and turns her life around. Coming to live with us was supposed to help with that in the first place.
Be popular? Heck, I have enough friends.

How To File A Stolen Gun Police Report
The first step in any occurrence of theft is to report the incident to the police immediately. This helps you recover the stolen item if it gets confiscated and helps with an insurance claim process on the account an official police report is required to file a claim.
Here are the general steps to file a police report:
- Call the non-emergency phone number for the local police station or law enforcement agency where the item was stolen.
- Obtain the physical address and go to the police station or law enforcement agency.
- Once there, go to the stolen property department if applicable.
- While creating a stolen property police report it's important to provide the theft detective or clerk with as many details as possible, especially the item's serial number, any identifying marks or stickers. Also include when, where and how the item was stolen.
- Once you have completed the report, be sure to obtain a copy and retain it for follow-up and recovery.
It's important to file a police report for theft, no matter how big, small or valuable the stolen item is, because it helps the police know a thief's (or thieves) M.O. and to control theft by using crime data to increase patrol in areas with a high or rising crime rate. Sometimes an area's theft rate can skyrocket because people don't report theft incidents because the stolen item isn't of high monetary value. This is called petty theft and is how a petty thief can continue stealing because the police are not made aware of their activity.
