Another reminder not to leave your firearms where thugs may quickly steal them...

I'm sorry if I step on someone felling's (not really) Just let or Officers (yes I capitalized that) do their job with out all the jackasses videoing and show much contempt and hatred. Then push our legal system to do what's need to convict. Now I would not be against giving the Garcia's their fire arm back then everybody could take a day off at the gun range. wink

Man, having someone scope out my equipment at the range and follow me has never crossed my mind. Iíll be more vigilant from now on when I go to public ranges. Thanks for the heads up.

The number of firearms that was being put in the back of the vehicle was surely something that caught the thug's attention. There's no question he knew the guns were there for the taking.

My wife often puts her purse in the trunk of her car before going into stores and such. I've always reminded her to never do it after she parks but somewhere well ahead of time. And I have purposely never put any hunting or gun related stickers on my truck so that theives aren't attracted to them. IMO, nothing says "probably guns inside" than a nice pickup covered in gun or hunting-related stickers with out-of-town dealer markings that's parked at some Hill Country stop during the middle of deer season.

Since my OP, another Houston area TV station aired a separate report on a number of cars in the area that had guns stolen out of them. And amazingly, many of the guns were stolen out of unlocked vehicles.

Don't leave anything in a vehicle that ya wouldn't leave on top of your vehicle. Takes 2 seconds to get in it.

That's why I will drive 6 hours non stop and piss in a bottle before I leave my guns unattended.
