I purchased some vintage rare hand guns a few years ago from my dad in NY and he sent them NY FFL dealer to FFL Dealer Florida where I picked them up using my FL conceal carry permit and ID. My dad passed away last year and he previously had told me to sell some of the handguns as I now had 6 (too many) and I don't shoot that much anymore. Back in Feb 2010, I went to a licensed gun shop locally and agreed to consign two handguns worth approximately $1200 and $300 each. I have never sold or consigned guns before. The owner appeared honest and strict and he had me complete 4 copies of his consignment form with my FL DL, the gun serial numbers, lowest price I would accept and my info, and told me he would later complete his part at the bottom. He gave me copies for each gun consigned. The Consignment agreement states that he would return guns to consigner with 3 days notice and $25 handling fee. I visited his shop 2-3 times to check if the guns were sold over the past few months, and emailed him 1-2x to lower the prices since they had not sold and he responded 1x. He never answers his phone and is usually very busy when I had previously stopped in to see him. Last week I left a phone message, then went to the shop to request my $ or guns to be returned and I was given the slow business story and a song and dance that ended with he had to wrap up things with the sale of the $1200 handgun as he was pretty sure it was sold and something of a check was mentioned, but ended with nothing being presented and confusion. I told him I would stop in on Friday. Later that day I sent him an email telling him I was requesting return of both guns, and the unsold guns and $ in person on Friday. I followed up with sending him a certified letter of the same. What do I do if this guy won't return the handguns or continues to avoid or give me the run around? Should I report him to the local Police and ATF saying he has stolen the guns and he will not return? Any info would greatly assist me. I'm hoping I don't need to sue the guy to get them back and he is not a crook. Secondly I am worried as the guns trace back to me and I have no sales receipts, only the consignment forms for each gun.
