Thursday night (5/28/09) my son had a Springfield XD45 semi-auto pistol out of his truck. It was parked in front of his friend's house while they were gone bowfishing. The house sits about 600' off of the closest road and other than a set of footprints walking up the dirt driveway (and the missing firearm), there was no indication that anyone had been there. They left the spare mag and a box af ammo which were in another part of the console. Very few people knew that he was there that night or that the gun was in there and although we have no clues as to who it was, it appears it would have to have been someone he knows.

Anyway, the gun is a:

Springfield Armory XD45 4" "Service"
Polymer Frame
Dark earth (tan) w/ black slide
.45 ACP
3 dot sights
Serial #US660932

The gun has had less than 300 rnds through it and was in perfect condition. Never been holstered, dropped, or modified in any way.

We just returned from filing the Police Report, so although it is doubtful that we will ever see the gun again, at least it is entered into the system.

Sorry to hear about the incident and good luck getting the gun back. I just have a question. Did he leave the gun out of the truck, like sitting on the tool box? or was it in the cab of the truck?

At least the serial number is entered into TCIC now.
I had my house burglarized a long time ago and the only thing I had the serial number to was my pistol.Fortunately enough, it was recovered and served to convict some burglars.

Always keep your serial numbers ladies and gents!

A tip for keeping your serial numbers:
-Store it in your safe
-Safe deposit box
-Laminated card in your wallet
-Put it on a document and email it to yourself, that way you have access
to it from any location.

Sorry to hear of your loss. Will add this to my watch list and advise local shops to be looking out for it.
