    I once thought I had lost one. Fortunately I had just put it away with my wallet because I was distracted by being on the phone (no more multi-tasking while disarming for me). 'Not a good feeling - blood rushed to my face and a wave of nausea until I found it.

    How did it get stolen?

    my house was broken into and a S&W 686+ was stolen..... a couple of months later i was notified by a Drug Task force detective that it had been found in the possession of a drug dealer. Now I'm just waiting for it to be used as evidence in a court case, after which it will be returned to me. I call the detective about every month or so to see how things are progressing. It is comforting to know that my gun is out there, but frustrating that i can't have it back yet.

    Unfortunately, my Ruger LCP .380 was stolen from my locked vehicle one night...in my driveway. Thugs hit several cars in the neighborhood that night. It ended up in he hands of a man who shot his girlfriend in the chest. Thankfully, she survived. He's now serving 18 years. They could not connect him with the theft other than possessing stolen property. I got the gun back. I thought about selling it because of bad mojo asociated with it but figured it may create headaches for a buyer if the numbers were ever run by an LEO. Sheriff's Office found it in a kudzu patch after he admitted to it and directed them to it. It has a small rust blemish on the slide from sitting outdoors for a few days. Still works flawlessly. I still carry it. And NO, I don't leave guns in vehicles anymore.

    Hot Wing - Man, that stinks big time.

    Why was the gun in your glove box in the first place? Had you just come from a "no guns allowed zone?"

    I hope the authorities find it soon!

    These are the kinds of stories that drive me crazy every time someone posts about having a "car gun."
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    I am really sorry for your loss and hope the police recover it. When I have to leave my gun in my car, I use the In Car Gun Safe: In Car Gun Lockers. Of course, that doesn't help if the car is stolen. Life is full of risks and our job is to try and minimize them.

    I feel for you Hot Wing and hope I never have to experience the same thing.

    I guess the less than $30 dollar gun safe for cars that is brought up at least once a week when members talk about how to secure a gun in a vehicle,makes you wish you could yell do-over and get another chance

    "Man I pray they find it with no harm to anyone." Consider this...how much damage can a .32 do? JUST KIDDING!

    I went on a motorcycle putt and when I returned home the 9mm that was in my pocket when I left was gone. I retraced the route I took on foot for about 3 miles to no avail. I then called the cops. Some kind soul had found it and turned it in to them. There were a few dings on it, but it still functioned fine.

    Talk about luck!

    This story should be a wake up call for anyone who doesn't have a safe in their car. The Center of Mass style safe will not keep a determined and prepared thief from stealing your gun, but it will deter a smash and grab type.
