Default Don't have a car gun.

I've lived on the same gravel road for almost 8 years. Very little trouble here. A few weeks ago our neighbor had his fishing pole stolen from the pond in clear view of both our back doors. Last night someone went down this road getting into every vehicle they could. They got a .22 from one of the neighbors down the road. Dunno yet if it's a rifle or pistol. So depending on which way they were going by the time they got to me they were armed. I'm currently home almost all the time and armed with at least a handgun but I can't help but wish that man would have carried his gun inside.

stuff like that is almost always a kid that lives in the area.

keep an eye open to whichever one shows up fishing with a "new" rod

I agree with Jonm but with all the crack heads running around who knows. They look for anything they can pawn or sell for a quick buck.

There was a time when trucks had gun racks in the rear windshield. If a gun was stolen from a vehicle, the shame fell on the thief. It is a sad day when the victim is blamed for being robbed.

That's unfortunate. Here in Kalifornia if the owner, whose gun was stolen, doesn't report it within 24 hours, he becomes a criminal.

Locking your vehicle doors will certainly help.
