Ok I've so I've noticed that stolen gear is often never recovered. While I wish this wasn't the case I realize it's the reality we have to deal with and getting word out to the community to be on the look out is difficult to say the least. So I recommend a centralized listing of stolen gear. Each listing would need to include Make, Model, Description, Serial Number, Contact info to owner, and perferablely pictures. The database would have a program to search the database automatically to find possible matches. If you find the gun is stolen, simply report the seller to the site (Ebay, Craig's List and so on...) and if he did not steal it he can refer you to who sold it to him and so on until the theif is caught. Although many people would be willing to help look for the gun, not having the info on hand to ID the gear often prevents them from realizing that the gear was found. I would also recomend that if buying a marker you ask for the serial number (in picture format) to cross check against the list. Hopefully this will make it more difficult to sell stolen markers and discourage the practice all togeather.
thats what my wife said when I first met her...
I still suck and barely know positions.
