    I'm pretty amazed that they found it that fast and the owner actually got his rifle back. Good deal.

    Now I'm paranoid of the misspelled gun names in ads though :paranoid:

    Should be real interesting when the original owner shows up to check it out.

    The perp looked like he'd been dropped on his head a few times, eh?

    Pretty cool. The perp isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    We have a term for criminals like that one - Felony Stupid! guys like that don't take great police work to catch - they tend to tell on themselves. This guy did one better than shooting his mouth off at a local bar or to the wrong person - nothing says please send me to jail and call me the cell block ho like advertising your ill gotten goods for sale with pics and using an email with your real name... Hope he learns something this go round.

    WOW, this is a great day for those cousins! It's good to see things like that from complete strangers, except on a forum. I have had some great dealings with people here as well!
