    This is convoluted logic. The shooter killed someone, not the gun. The gun is only a tool, an inanimate object. It doesn't have a brain or central nervous system. The gun doesn't possess qualities like sorrow, guilt, remorse or any other human traits, so how can it be "tainted"?


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    All answers already given but yes - the gun is inevitably evidence and could well be held until after the case has gone to court. Getting it back later if you are exhonorated will be down to state and local level policies etc, as to whether sooner or later.

    We have to realize that our carry piece has to be in part ''expendable'' - at least for the duration if it is ever used. Some folks use that as a way to justify a cheapie piece so loss is minimal.

    I tend to work on the stat's - knowing that I have every chance hopefully of never using mine in anger and so carry what is best for me - even tho in value terms it would be a very unhappy loss.

    I shouldnt respond to this ..... but I will ........

    Enigmaone , I really hope you never have contact with an actual felony investigation . In point of fact IMHO you need a bit more grounding in reality. Now you do whateaver you want but i will suggest you take / retake a good self defense related training course from about anyone and LISTEN to them . I wont get into a discussion of your issues here ( its inapproprate for the standards set and maintained by this forum ) but please get a bit of training .. Thanks in advance for reading my somewhat long winded response .

    enigmaone I for one will vote to leave your post intact .. It does bring up issues that some may well want/need to look at . I disagree with what you said , but will fight for your right to say it .

    Well - the post is there now and been referenced so it can stand - but it could be taken as offensive by some.

    You have though stated no intent for offense so - thank you - that eases things. No further comment needed on that.

    And it's also just a gun, life goes on and you can always get it back later....

    The way I see it, my CCW piece is a disposable tool ... thats why I don't pack a P7M10 or Korth or a custom 1911 by Larry Vickers.

    I expect the weapon to be take as evidence and when I get it back it will likely be a little more scratched up, maybe some rust, and a case number carved into the side of the frame.



    Years ago a ******* friend of mine was being a ******* ... he was driving around in his truck drunk and shooting at stop signs and such with his Belgian HiPower (Nazi proofed and all) ... anyway, cop sees him speeding and he runs (*******) and ends up wrecking his truck. While feeling around on the ground for his glasses (where his gun was ... did I mention he's a *******?) he almost got shot.

    Anyway, long story short he gets popped for DUI and evading (cops didn't know he was shooting stopsigns). The pistol gets confiscated and he got it back a couple of months later ... rusty and with the case number electropenciled on the frame.

    I imagine if my ******* friend would get his gun returned to him that one of you gents in an honest to God self defense shooting would get your's back.

    Did I mention he's a *******?

    I began the sentence with "In my mind, the gun is tainted". Indeed, the weapon is an inanimate object, however it was nonetheless the tool used to accomplish the mission. Others may have different logic, and presumably yours differes from mine.

    If I ever had to shoot someone to defend my life... indeed I would be grateful that I am still alive. Its kind of a machoesque rationale to shadowbox it and put it on proud display. Perhaps this is just the male tendancy of the situation? Consider this... How many women who are the victim of rape, shadow box the dress they wore, or the nail file they used to bludgen and fend off thier attacker? I bet very few... Most people I know would shed any reminder of that event in the dumpster, buy a new dress that looked nothing like the old one, and place a new nail file in their purse (allbeit a bigger one for replacement). I was just saying that my pistol would be no different in my mind. I just might decide to get the H&K Mark 23 SOCOM instead, but I would not care if the pistol was returned to me or not.

    An $800 pistol isnt worth the hassle to me..... convoluted logic? Perhaps, but its my logic.
