    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.

    Never leave anything you wish to continue owning in an unattended vehicle. For that matter, don't get overly attached to the vehicle.

    I have a truck gun,it's a cut down (18.5") single barrel 12 gauge I put a side saddle on. It's out of sight under the rear Bench seat,if it gets got ill only be out 80 bucks.

    I sometimes leave handguns in a bolted down lockbox as well,but that would take some doing to get into. I have a policy of never leaving anything easily accessible in the truck that would leave a auto burglar better armed Than i am where to run into him shortly after he did the deed.

    My truck has a security system and is ALWAYS locked up.

    I keep a gun in every vehicle we own. Nothing special. Keep them out of plain sight and keep your doors locked.

    I only had a car broken into one time. All they got was the bag with my martial arts workout clothes and -- I did really hate to loose these -- the only pair of prescription sport goggles I ever had.

    In hatch area of the car was a bag that contained a handgun among other valuable items. They never touched that.

    If I was going to leave a gun in a vehicle, it would be so well concealed that a CAREFUL search would not find it, or it'd be in some sort of concealed vault. That serial number traces back to you, and at some future point in time, that might not be a simple police call sort of thing to resolve.
