%^$#%*^$&^! I feel like a tool! I have let a handgun get out of my care & custody, and now it roams the street. I'm kicking myself in the ass over a number of things. Any help/guidance/advice you can offer is much appreciated. 1. Sorry, gents! The thought of one of you "finding" it the wrong way has me pretty damn upset. 2. I want it back (duh), but I'd be completely happy if I never saw it again, as long as it is off the street. missing: HS 2000 generation 2 9mm (Springfield XD before Springfield bought the production rights for those not familiar) black frame, o.d. green teflon coated slide. (slide was black from factory) I'm 99% certain it was taken by my now former sole employee, who was out of work 3 weeks (hepatitus c) and came back to work on Friday. He's a prior felon (cocaine possession 6 years ago) allegedly trying to get his life back on track post prison / post nasty divorce. To date, a hard working, reliable person, but as it turns out, according to the Deputy who took the report, both of his brothers are "clients". The gun went missing between Friday evening and Sunday morning from my work truck. Unfortunately, I don't have the damn serial number. I have the serial number, make, and model of every gun I have ever owned except that one, and it is the only used gun i owned. I traded a friend for it in 2000, and apparently never added it to the list. I know the distributor where it was bought, but not who it was sold to originally. I learned Sunday that serial # is required for entry into the Federal database, so the gun can't be logged in as stolen. what a screw up on my part! If anyone can offer any help at all, I'll be eternally grateful.
