Had to wait till all 5 people pled out or went to court . Covid delayed their court dates about 2 years . . Was picked up in a joint task force raid . ATF,DEA ,US marshals and the Gulf coast task force . Mine was one of several guns picked up . Along with a good amount of narcotics.

Oh Wow!
I guess its a good assumption that they cleared the gun from any potential shootings while not in your possession?

Did they return the narcotics too?

Had a pistol stolen form my truck in Texarkana a few years back. Never thought I'd see it again. I guess the thief sold or traded it on the streets and it wound up at a local pawn shop. I got my back within a few months of it being stolen. I didn't think I'd ever see it again.

From what I understand is they had a few kilos of powder and several ounces of crack

I went and dug out my paper work from the ATF . I was originally notified on 12/19/18 that it was recovered. And a few days later I got my letter saying I will get the gun back after the case was dissolved .
