Reminds me of a thing I saw for home storage, where someone had a glass-faced gun cabinet with some old POS .22s and bolt guns, and then in a closet in an artificial Christmas tree box they kept their real hardware.

I use an old pro-gard locking gun rack from a squad car that I bought at a local police auction a few years ago. It isn't stealthy and I had to bolt it up in my trunk, but it is reasonably secure and I bought it for $4.

I've heard of people using golf club bags, but that christmas tree box is smart thinking.

Yeah - and they may figure hazard signs would be easy to pawn

Coming from a 'Practical' point of view I have a few criticisms of this 'theory' of using a road hazard case ....

More often than not someone breaking into your car is a drug addict, and more likely to be on Meth, Heroin, or pills than anything else ...

'Meth Heads' look for Road Flares to make meth!


Now .... why would I put my firearm in a case that is almost guaranteed to be stolen by a MethHead?

See my point? This wasn't a well thought out concept.

Other than school property, banks, government buildings, I do not leave any firearm in the automobile for obvious reasons. Our local downtown mall has a ruling that no firearms permitted but even though I seldom go there I break the rules. If there is anyplace in town where you need self protection measures, it is there and if by chance had to use the handgun, guess I would be in trouble, but not as much trouble if I had not had the handgun. Druggies, your basic thieves ,are what is known as "snatch and grab" artists and anything they can carry will be taken regardless of value. The multi floor parking garage is poorly lighted and it is known for a place that scum bags to hang out in the evenings and prey on unsuspecting customers, especially women. I should mention that this mall does have a fairly large room that is used for those carrying firearms to "check them in" but that does not appeal to me at all. Can't speak for others, but after 44yrs. with my wife and someone harming her would definitely send me "over the top" and they would have to lock me up for I certainly would break a lot more "rules of engagement" as they say.

Thanks from Bamban

LOL! Spot on!

Lesson of this story .... don't assume you know who is going to be coming for your stuff or when. I've given a perfect example of what drug users look for, and you've chosen to dismiss it ....
