Did you get them before or after you were married?  If you got them after then she has just as much right to them as you do and could even sell them if she wanted.

As for calling and saying the guns were stolen?

Yep nothing like filing a false report.

In this state the cops can not help you. The property is hers as much as it's yours. Doesn't matter when you purchased them.
A judge will have to decide. Once the court order is issued the cops can step in.

Until then, good luck.

She is using them to harm and control you.  It is working.

You can always get more stuff.  Give them up and go on with your life.  Buy more when it's all over.

Civil matter.
Cops here have no power to take what she has the legal right to just because you have a receipt.

What yours is hers and visa versa.

If you still have legal right to be in the residence go get them.

"immediate need?"

If the guns on your property (or joint property), and the guns are your property, go get them.  Did you take your clothes?  Your car?  Your wallet?

If they are going to be awarded to someone in the divorce decree then they become that person's property at that time.

You can call the non-emergency number for your local PD and see if they can come out to make sure there are no dramatics.

File this away in the back of your mind as a learning experience.





You could potentially do yourself more harm than good by trying to take $2k worth of guns from her.
ETA:  You need to way the cost vs. benefit.  Is your soon to be ex-wife capable of lying to screw your life up?  Is it worth confronting her for $2k worth of guns?



Just like everything in life, you need to carefully weigh your options.

Got them while married, she also found out that I had bought and sold 2 other rifles without her knowing but they are gone now, regret selling those M1As more than this divorce. If she sells them without my permission she will be in court trying to explain that to the judge. I have pictures and serial #s on file

This. Just wait till shes not home and walk in and take them if you can legally be there, assuming shes not staying at a friend or relatives house. And even then, show up when shes not home with your attourney and have him work some mumbo jumo about how the home owner is liable for the 'stolen property'.

If you really wanna fuck with her, buy 3 airsoft replicas and just swap them out for the real ones. Claim you always owned 3 airsoft guns when she tries to sell them and that she can just keep em.

Dude, it's just stuff, don't let her hold you hostage over stuff.  Unless you've got some uber custom 45 and AR, you've got ~$2000 tied up in all 3.  Just let them go and celebrate the divorce by buying new guns.

Fortunately, I bought all of my weapons before I got married.  I was also fortunate enough to find out that my ex was a cheating whore months before I let her know that I knew.  I slowly moved all of my weapons out of the house in the meantime anyway, while my attorney drafted up the divorce papers.  When I finally confronted her, my ducks were pretty much in a row, but in retrospect, I was far too nice to her.  I should have been a little meaner / cruel.....but I just didnt care enough about her to put forth the effort at that point.  She is somebody else's problem now, and she did me a huge favor.  I have the most wonderful girlfriend now as a result of all of this.  And, my ex went off the deep end when she saw my girlfriend.  HAHAHAHAHA!    I upgraded in every aspect.

I did buy a lower receiver for an AR-15, that I was going to put together.  The idiot kept calling it a .45 during the divorce proceedings.  When she finally explained what it was, I laughed out loud, and told her that I'd deliver it to her in a couple of hours.  It will perpetually be a paperwieght  in her possession.  Que sera....

The solution to this mess is easy - don't get married.

Why guys continually fuck themselves by getting married is beyond me.  There is absolutely no advantage for the man to get married, but for the woman it's a gold mine.  Have all the divorce horror stories posted here on ARFcom taught you nothing?

Any man who gets married is a fool.
