    He's an LEO from Ireland. How's he supposed to do that? He was legal all the way, it's just that some scumbag took his gun.

    As stated before, I'd post the stolen handgun description with serial # on Glocktalk.com

    I hope they catch the guy & you get your Glock back. I wouldn't hold my breath though.

    Sounds like it might be a good idea to disassemble the weapon and keep some small, important parts with you. (I know, there are no unimportant parts, but you know what I mean.) Then if it's stolen, there might be a chance for the manufacturer to be on the lookout for orders for that particular list of parts.
    What a sad commentary - the henhouse guarded by the foxes. Makes you want to drive everywhere.

    Sorry dude.

    Curious. They ran a weapon that they knew had just arrived in the USA. Do our databases cover foreign weapons?

    Ironically enough, only if they were reported stolen.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Just because a firearm is entering the USA does not mean that it is a "foreign weapon."

    Regardless though, querying it at the border, regardless of the odds of the firearm being in the system, is also a step in the process documenting the entry of the firearm; .i.e. there is an electronic record that it was queried at the border on a given date and time.

    I agree the regulations probably helped cause this, as a glock in a non-descript bag wouldn't be a target for thieves.
    I'm wondering how they're going to settle this, too, and how long it'll take given stuff is lost(or stolen) a lot.

    Will prob not solve it, especially since it was likely an airline employee that did it, since they have multiple times where they have access to it.

    Another question. Was your bag actually marked in any particular way?

    I was under the impression that TSA wasn't allowed to mark bags with firearms after the checkin procedure specifically because it makes it trivial for thieves to know which bags have weapons in them. Shippers like Fedex and UPS use this model too.

    If the bags aren't labeled specially, then the likelihood of TSA or checking counter airline employees not being involved is very slim. After all, how will a behind the scenes baggage handler know which bag to target without being tipped off.

    Of course, thousands of TSA claims are denied all the time for losses because "passengers can't prove it was the TSA's fault." This reason for claim denials is a lousy one since TSA's the only one that's supposed to be checking inside the bag to even know there's stuff of interest.

    I wish you luck in recovering the gun or getting reasonably reimbursed.
