    My truck was broken into the morning of February 24, 2008 (I keep thinking its still 2008 right now lol).

    When I came out in the morning my driver side window was smashed in and the door was open.

    The only thing that was missing was a Sentry lock box with my new Sig Sauer P226 Platinum Elite 9mm in it with two mags and a box of Cor-Bons.

    The serial number is U768872. It was purchased from the Saxet Gun Show up in Austin a couple weeks earlier from TNG Hardware.

    The gun was unfired. It had a brand new Streamlignt TLR-2 light/laser attached to the accessory rail.

    I have filed a police report with HPD but have not heard anything back.

    Sorry to hear of your loss, will add this to my watch list. Do not lose hope, I have recovered guns after several years.

    Well the ATF came to me in march 09 and asked me why this gun was found at a crime scene. Apparently it had been confiscated by the sheriff's department in may 2008 only a couple months after i lost it. I worked with hpd and hcso for 2 months calling them everyday and i just got it back a couple days ago. The finish was worn, there was mud onn it and a bunch of scratches but at least i got it back.

    Glad to hear you got it back! Don't worry about the physical damage. Sigs like it, it just adds character. ;) I guess I can say mine has lots of "character"! ;)

    So who gave it back to you, ATF or HCSO? What kind of crime was it used in?

    That is great news, every so often we get one back to the rightful owner. Glad you were one of the lucky ones.
