Alabama is not a community property state, so nothing is "commumity property." Anything owned separately by each spouse is his or hers and does not become joint property. And most particularly, *your* property does not become property of him, her, or them both--if you never gave him the gun, it was your gun and she stole it. You could file a police report and/or sue her for its value.
