Default Buyback question

I only ask this question because it raises a question in my mind on the buy backs all of these departments are doing.
I was deployed and had firearms in a girlfriends house and once I returned and was out of the military hospital I was given part of the weapons back by a friend in our unit. Upon contacting the ex-friend about the other guns and mags I was told I was given them all. I was not so I was instructed by my command to leave her alone and all I could do is contact San Diego PD which I did and filled out a police report.
So when someone turns in a gun at one of these programs are these guns serial numbers run so that someone like me in this situation has a chance to get our guns back. Thanks for anyone that can shed some light on this to me....

They run the serial numbers and any that are reported stolen are returned to their owners.

Nice.

I vote for more buy backs and less new anti gun laws.

I know what you mean. Had some of my gun stolen from my parents house many years ago, including the Smith revolver my grandpa used with San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department in the 40's and 50's and the Marlin Model 60 and RugerSingle Six I learned to shoot with.

This was in the early 80's. Every serial number was provided to the police, they were still in the ystem last time I checked, but they have fever surfaced.

The law only requires that we make "due diligence" in locating the registered owner. You don't mention when this occurred or even if your ex acutally turned them in. If its been at least that long and they have documentation that they made an effort to locate the Reg Owner then more than likely they've been destroyed. Buy back programs are designed to quickly get rid of guns not store them. I hope your ex did turn them in and not gave them to someone. Good Luck.
