A question for friends who borrow guns from me.

I am not seeing my bullpup Remington 870 or the Kel-tec sub2000 with quad rail on it. It’s very possible that I am overlooking them right in front of my face, but it’s also possible that I lend them out for somebody to try and forgot about it. If you have one of those on hand, please let me know privately.

I had a similar mystery recently, when a pistol disappeared. Turned out that a helpful friend put it into a case with another pistol going to a gunsmith for repair. The gunsmith didn’t ask me what the second pistol was for until I called about it.

So, just in case, I am checking on the two items I temporarily can’t locate.

    I have had that happen to me with expensive books. I don’t loan my guns out. I will let friends shoot my guns at the range but I am there.

    I know there’s no such thing as too many guns, but your problem may be a sign of actually having enough. Didn’t know it was possible. 🙂

      It’s a sign of being too casual about physical possessions in general. I am not sure that these two are out of the house, but it’s possible. A while ago, I had to think about the provenance of two collectible .22 rifles in my possession — fortunately, I usually remember what I borrow way better than what I lend.

    Suggestion: Next time you loan something out, take a digital picture of your friend holding the item in question. That way you know who has what!

    Be glad you are not in a state that requires you to have documentation of having put a firearm into the possession of a person not in your immediate family, and keep that record for 10 years. That doesn’t get your gun back, but puts a different perspective on such.
