    Holy crap, seriously?! Wow, that is weird! The thief is obviously not too bright. Did they catch the guy?

    Glad to hear you recovered one of your firearms laneman. But sorry to hear it was stolen in the first place, good luck with the rest. You'd have to assume the guy selling said gun on TGT is more than likely the scumbag that robbed you, right? Maybe he is still sitting on more or all of the rest.

    I hope our police dept. helps out now that you've found one. Cleburne resident here. That sure doesn't make me feel cozy hearing that.

    Laneman,

    You said one of your guns. Are there others you have the serial number for? If so, would you post them here so I can add them to my watch list. Sorry for your loss.

    At the very least they got 'the seller' for posession of stolem property. As you said, hopwfully links to the rest.

    In my (un)pleasant stolen firearm experience, the small calibers came up found on druggie thugs caught on warrants/moving violations fairly quickly (within months). I've yet to see longarms or pistols of the .380 on up found locally.

    Possession of stolen property is not a crime in Texas.

    Since this is the OPs first post and has such little info, well..........color me skeptical
