100% agree, if your gun is on the possession of the philly police department you'll probably need to get a court order to get it returned to you.
The case was adjudicated at the Federal level with the defendant having plead guilty to the charge of "possession of a firearm by a convicted felon"
. While the pistol was recovered by the Philadelphia PD, I am now dealing with the US District Court of Eastern PA. It remains unclear if the pistol is still in possession of the Philadelphia PD evidence room or has been transferred to the ATF. Either way, I have no realistic expectation of recovering my property. At this point, this is merely an academic exercise. My plan is to pursue this until I have exhausted all avenues.
