I hope this is posted in the right area... Anyway, last week I get a call from a Detective in the county south of where I live and asks me do I own a Ruger "XXXX" model rifle, or have I ever owned one. I tell him no, I have never bought that model rifle, or owned one. He tells me that after a search warrant had been served on a house his department found a lot of stolen property and firearms. I said " Ok, what the **** does this have to do with me?" The dectective said he ran an BATF trace on this Ruger "XXXX" model rifle and it came back that I was the original buyer at "XXXX" gunshop on such and such day. He had my name, birthdate, address, and knew I had a concealed carry permit. After thinking about the purchase date and the gunshop, I realize I had bought a Ruger "XXXX" PISTOL on that very day!!! The two guns could not have been mistaken for one another: One Rifle 5.56 Cal, One pistol 22LR Cal. Two sum this up it looks like the gunshop swapped serial numbers of the two guns on the paperwork. Has anyone heard of this happening before?? Sorry for the "XXXX" but the case has been handed over to the BATF as of now.
