FORTUNATE! Did you have the serial numbers on hand when you reported it? I keep a record of serial numbers, especially firearms, if anything were to happen to them. It is a good practice to keep if anything just happens to go missing. If anything is found by the police having given the serial numbers to them usually helps you get your gear, or whatever it was, back more quickly.
Make sure you use holopoints for home defense. Sure, they are more expensive, but they are more likely to not carry through the intended target and through to a distant target. Plus, you get more stopping power into the target, especially if you are planning on a 9mm. Practice with ball ammunition.
