Bad Luck

ColtCCO is a good guy, but seems to have nothing but trouble when it comes to interactions with the police.
In this particular case, the Gallatin, TN police police confiscated his $1,500 1911 pistol and have yet to return it, claiming they need several weeks to perform a “stolen gun check” prior to releasing it to him. This is bogus, as an NCIC check takes but a few seconds (including typing time).
Something seems fishy.
Update: The Gallatin PD seems to be doing a full ATF trace on the firearm, not just an NCIC check. The NRA’s on the case, and there’s been a bunch of publicity. Hopefully this works out all right.
