12. My guess is stolen.
Edited on Sat Jun-13-09 12:16 AM by juno jones
My father had an extensive gun collection when he died.

My mother had a collector friend of his (who was also a legit dealer) come in and buy his reloading stuff and most of the collectables.

Before she could have another person by to get the rest, one of my sister's skinhead friends broke in and stole them. He was reasonably familiar with the house and either had found the gun case key, or my sister had shown him where it was. Everything was taken including a couple of old guns that the collector had passed over.

We recovered most of the jewelry and other extras this kid took as well, but the guns diappeared. If Dad hadn't been dead already, it would have killed him. He'd always been as responsible as possible with them.

It's one reason that despite growing up with guns and being comfortable with dealing with one, I am a little ambivalent about them.
