Thanks localfreerider, I much appreciate the advice. I had gotten free consolation with a local lawyer in regards to the situation. He assessed the written contracts I had with BWP (consignment contracts with details of the guns and the original receipts for said guns) and he informed me that the cost for the case would exceed what I could hope to get back. I spoke with the local police in hopes of gaining some insight but were unable to provide me with any useful information pertaining to the case.
In the end BWP made me sign a contract absolving they of all liabilities in exchange for less than 1/3 of their value. YES it was a poor choice on my part but it was my only choice. I was selling these for school and I needed to come away with something for the upcoming year.
