Go to the seller where you purchased the gun.
Go the the gunshop or person you bought it from.
Contact the dealer the gun was purchased from.
Ask a police officer
Check with local law enforcement.
Contact the police.
You need a lawyer.
Texas does not have gun registration. If you suspect the gun has been stolen, call your local law enforcement agency. They have access to databases of stolen guns and can check this for you and find the rightful owner.
From the bill of sale or from the store u purchased from Regardless of if you have the bill of sale or not, it will be in there record book that is required to meet the obligations for having a FFL.
Depending on where you are, a local gun shop may be able to run a stolen gun request for you. You can do that in Tennessee, *IF* your local gun shop is willing to do it. Otherwise, you will probably have to check with the local Police Department.
Contact your local law enforcement. They can check to see if the serial number has been entered as a stolen item. IF there is a report, the officer will need to retain the gun to return it to the owner. They WILL need to have the gun in hand to do this, not over the phone.
Contact local law enforcement. Give them the gun, and ask if they will check the NCIC data base (as a private citizen, you do not have access to that system). If the gun IS stolen, it will be confiscated by the police, and you may have to testify in a stolen property trial.
There are two or three, but, they are only good if the sn is listed.
call the state police and give them the serial number off the weapon or take it to a gun shop and have them do a check, but if you were smart and bought the gun legally at a gun show or gun dealer the gun will most likely not be stolen due to the background check and gun registry, also if you purchased the gun off of any tom, dick ,or harry and did not have it registered to you, when you call the police or take it to a gun shop to have the serial number checked you will be going to jail because it is a felony to buy a gun and not have it registered to you .
You can contact your local law enforcement agency and request that they run the serial number through the FBI's NCIC (National Crime Information Center) database. If the firearm was stolen in the state of Florida it may be listed in the Florida Crime Information System's PAS Database.
Probably not online, but any local police station can run the serial number and tell you. If it did turn up stolen, you wouldn't be in any trouble, but you would lose the gun.
what gun are we talking about here
Go to your local police with the sn.
Internet, library, gun shop, gun shows.
I would contact the department of public service (State Troopers) or The Texas Rangers. There are also a few stolen gun posts on some of the bigger gun forums and databases
You can't. The best you can do is check with local law enforcement.
You can't. Contact the police if you believe it is stolen.
I think you will find that the police will confiscate the gun and ask you WHO sold it to you///
