Seriously? I would not admit to losing a gun of any type let alone lose one. And do you mean the basement of the RV or the house. And 2 checkbooks missing as well? What have you been doing for the last 8 months?

That would depend on what state . If mine where lost or stolen , & later someone found them & turned them in , they wouldnít know who they belonged to .

Yeah my thoughts were floating in this direction too. Many wives are anti gun and don't want that dirty thing around. I actually have more guns than my husband. I sold several guns a few years back that were duplicates or that I didn't "love" because the gun safe was getting crowded. When a handgun goes camping with us its mine. lol Its my DC so not likely to spend much time in a box.

Or its like my husband and my power tools. I have thousands of dollars of power tools that he isn't interested in because he is a woodworking guy. I no longer use them for work but they get used occasionally and I can never find them...and he cant find them cause he cant remember where he put them to get them out of the way. He is in charge of the barn and doesn't care about tools he sees no value in.

As far as the bashing about losing it. It was in a box, its easy to grab a box and shove it somewhere and not give it a second thought as to what is in it. Ive even been unable to find something because my recollection is different from what I am actually looking for. I was looking for something the other day, once I gave up on what container I thought it was stored in I found it and then went ohhhh yeah I remember now.

It is a real concern its missing. If it is no longer in their possession then get the SN and report as stolen. If it was stolen how did it get stolen? This supports my strong feelings about locking your RV door anytime you walk away from it regardless of how "safe" you think the area you are parked in is.

A woman after my own heart , I married one just like you, when I buy a firearm she will usually buy one as well, this way I don't ever have to worry about her selling them for whhat I told her I paid for them, she already knows.

Do you have a flexsteel couch that pulls out to make a bed? I dropped my phone behind my couch, and couldn't reach it. I pulled out the draw under the couch, and found my phone, another cell phone the original owner had lost 15 years earlier, and a ten dollar bill. Your gun might be there. Eddie Elk.

Don't try crossing the Canadian Border, the Customs and Border Patrol Guards Will find your gun...and you won't like the consequences.

What's with all the bashing? The guy asked for advice on finding it.

Don't cross into Mexico or
Canada cause they'll probably find it for you.

Friend of mine lost an Airweight pistol. Took him a year to find it.....in a basket beside his recliner where he dropped the mail to read later.

Yeah, I was wondering this early on in this series of post.
The fact that there are other items missing also, makes me wonder if someone (perhaps a "visitor") helped themselves to these items.
I hear of this happening all the time... often with jewelry. In these cases, the owner back-tracks in their mind and remembers a family member or maybe a repairman that they allowed access to their home and afterwards, realize that there are items missing from their home.

Sometimes I think posts like this are fake, just so the writer can watch everyone scramble with their advise. No MH is that bing that you canít search it in 29 1/2 minutes.
