Default What to do when you can't contact a FFL you sent lowers to?

Set this up months ago. Dude was responsive via email and seemed legit. Flash forward to today and I can't reach them. Phone disconnected, website says something about a family health issue and email is best. Problem is no one responds to email and my lowers are with them. Package signed for.

What now? Report as stolen?

I'm assuming he a home based ffl, if so keep calling, if he having health issue you kinda have to wait it out. Or ask him to send it to another ffl.

At what point do I call the local PD?

Signature on package has different first initial than my contact.

It would be a civil matter, not criminal. You don't own the items as it has not been transferred to you, but you do have what amounts to a lien on the item. The police are not going to be able to help you.

You could stop by the premises address and see if anyone is home and see about getting it transferred to another FFL.

Stopped by today, but no one there. That was a 3 hour waste of time.

Yep, actually got it resolved. Turns out he is deploying so he kicked me down the road to another shop. Glad this group buy came in when it did or I would have been fooked.
