    Hoping for a Christmas miracle of sorts. Best friend hit tough times and pawned his Beretta BL-3 in order to make ends meet, and was unable to make full payments in time and the gun was sold. His own fault, yes I know, he knows, however that part is really of least relevance. This piece has tremendous sentimental value to he and his family, and I am desperately searching for the person who purchased it in order to see if they would be willing to sell/trade. If you or if you might know who someone who purchased a Beretta BL-3 (most likely still had the fluorescent sight) from a Plano pawn shop in Plano October/November or through the line of such, I would love to speak to you. I do have the specific details in order to verify if it is in fact the exact shotgun I am searching for, including more specifics of the sale, serial number and value it was sold for. Random, last effort I know to make, so thought I would reach out for help and hope for the best!!!

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Best of luck to you!

    Sent from...wait where am I!?


    Thank you! It's a good guy I'm trying to help out...he's still adjusting to a couple of tours overseas, and it is things like this that I would love to keep off of the regret/frustration list, though I get the fact, bills are bills. Can't have extra things around until the necessities are taken care of. I've never seen someone make such tremendous strides in such a short period of time, that to be able to bring this piece home, would really be something I would be honored to do! I've tried reaching out to the stop for help, and he and I toyed with purchasing a BL-4, explaining, and it becoming a replacement...but that's just it. You can't replace true sentimental attachment. Granted I probably sound overly sappy, but I am at the end of my rope with known ideas on how else to find this gun, short of a miracle of someone reading this post, and also being willing. It would be a huge event for their entire family...they would all benefit, I would get to smile for months having done something to help, and certainly, would make sure that whomever has the piece left more than happy!

    So you haven't tried asking the shop that sold it? That is where I would start.

    I don't expect them to give you any of the buyer's information but maybe they could make a call or send a letter (since they may only have an address).

    That's the first place I tried, inquiring with the exact same hope, that they may be willing to reach out to the buyer. Unfortunately, it was a quick no. Thank you for the suggestion!
