The gun has already been down that road. The gun is in the possession of the Parker County Sheriff's Office. They are trying to reconnect it with the rightful owner. Nobody is trying to "find it" as they know exactly where it is, just not who it belongs to.Hopefully the scumbag who stole it will try and pawn it.Otherwise I do not see the owner ever getting the gun back.
It seems these days that the police in some other states would have any seized/found gun melted down that they can at the first excuse. That is exceptional that this sheriff is actually trying to help return one to it's rightful owner.
He is a good guy, but it is also the difference between a rural Texas county and the Big City. The county seat (Weatherford) is only 25,000 people and dwarfs the other towns in the county. Overall, a great place to live - I could never go back to city living....we should say thank you to a man who takes his job for what it is suppost to be, " to protect and SERVE".
